    New Pool build

    Thanks for the reply! No SWG on this new install, just a filter pump. I just dose the bleach according to the CYA that is currently in the sock until I get my test kit? Guess I'm just worried my kit may get delayed due the the current delays of mail delivery and I dont know how much bleach I...

    New Pool build

    I feel confident, but just want to confirm: New pool was installed yesterday and it just finished filling up. My TF-100 kit is not here yet. I did however buy my CYA granules today as well as some bleach. I should dose to the recommended CYA in a sock into the skimmer correct (50)? I didn't...

    Intex to Doughboy!

    The day has finally come! We said goodbye to our 18' Intex Ultra frame last year (after 3 summers and lots of rust) and upgraded this year to a 21' doughboy (Autumn Breeze). We installed our intex, but wanted the professionals to handle this install which is happening in 12 hours! We have had a...

    "Off brand" Pumps and Filter Systems

    Upgrading this year to either a 20' Sharkline or 21' Doughboy..deciding that this week. However, having some second thoughts on these so called "pool packages" that the retailers want to include. On our previous Intex pool, we upgraded immediately to the sand pump - but think this time around...

    Upgrading from an Intex to AGP - need insight!

    Never thought of the advantages of a two speed pump like that. I guess we were just used to setting the timer and forgetting about it. to be honest, I never really looked at my electric bill to see how much it was affected. As for the SWG, if we go with the doughboy, unfortunately it would void...

    Bad news: Rust. Good news: Time to upgrade.

    Ours looked exactly the same after 3 seasons. We took it down and the end of our swim season last year. It was so corroded that some of the legs and footings were just broke. I too was surprised it was still standing, but didnt want to push my luck another season. Im sure the salt water didnt...

    Upgrading from an Intex to AGP - need insight!

    Our Intex lasted us only 3 seasons. By the time we opened it up last season we knew it would be the last due to the amount of rust and corrosion. We feel we got our moneys worth and wanted to test the waters of being pool owners. We took it down last season and are now ready to purchase a more...

    Water looks good, but lots of rusting on Intex!

    The CYA was at a 30 (FC 7) so I know I need to up that. And that reading was after I topped off the pool from it being winterized over the last few months. I guess I need to decide what route I will go - manually dosing the pool daily or using the SWCG. Im just so conflicted since I struggled...

    Water looks good, but lots of rusting on Intex!

    The only other thought I has was..can algae grow inside your ladder? we have a Plastic ladder (Confer) and that the only other thing I can think of. Maybe something is growing in there? I just did my first water test of the year after filling up what I drained out last year and my FC was at a...

    Water looks good, but lots of rusting on Intex!

    Thats what I figured about the SWCG. However, There cant be enough salt in the water because I do empty almost half the water out to get the required number of inches below the inputs and outputs. So, If I am not going to utilize the SWCG, I wouldnt have the need to add more salt. Honestly I...

    Water looks good, but lots of rusting on Intex!

    Going into my 3rd summer (second opening) and this year my water was such an improvement from last years green mess! BUT, I have a lot of rust going on specifically in the T-joints on my Intex pool. Upon researching, it seems others have had the same issues. We chose to keep our pool up and...
