    Help. Does this look right?

    Pool is about a year old and had a company come out to install iaqualink and plumb in a slide yesterday. came home today to algae in the pool, gurgling and my filter gauge going haywire 0-20. Also, chlorinator lights all on and it says to add salt. I’m worried, don’t know if he needs to come...

    plaster on new pool-is this how it should look?

    Hey all, sorry for delay in reply, I am just seeing some of these now b/c of my notifications. After escalating the issue via letter to the CEO, I was contacted by a VP who set the ball in motion for them to acid wash it and sand/brush the surface for a more uniform look and then we will...

    Pool slides, recommendations?

    what did you decide on? I went with the typhoon and just had a party with 20 9yo kids who loved it. I do plan on building a platform/landing approx. 4' high that would surround the steps for some added safety. My slide and proposed platform build are attached... I figured I could put some...

    Plumbing slide

    I am a new pool owner and about to purchase a SR Smith Typhoon slide. It has a hardline hookup or standard hose option. My pool has a spigot on between the pump and filter that I was told was used to pressure test and blow out lines. Can I use that to run a standard garden hose to slide instead...

    New pool, new to forum

    Going on month 9 of our install from Anthony Sylvan. 18x36, 11000 gal with spa and ansylbrite finish. Pool has been leaking since filling in November and it looks like they finally located a problem with drains in spa. They are jackhammering, hydraulic cementing new drains and then plaster...
