    Ariel by Solar-Breeze

    Just changed my mind about the list. Going to hit buy today as I watch the pine straw, magnolia leaves and hibiscus blooms dive bomb the pool to prevent another year of skimmer’s shoulder. Several on-line stores are selling for $528 while solar breeze site lists at $558.

    Frogs!!

    Frog or toad? I removed a frog/toad from the skimmer who jumped right back into the deep end of the pool. I had to go get the long pole. When I returned he had his front and rear legs outstretched as he sank. When I got him in the net he returned to frog shape. Anyone know what the...

    HOT RAILING

    I can fry an egg on the railing. I’ve tie wrapped a pool noodle to one of the bars but it’s not the best solution - it’s not hot but the foam widens the grip and because it dries out hands get covered in foam flakes. I like it because it’s colorful though. Anybody have any suggestions?

    Gunite Pool tile problem

    I had one tile fall off and freaked out. Your situation is certainly more serious than my experience. I found this ”magical” adhesive that worked like a charm. I know - anything with magic and miracle in it’s name or as seen on TV caveat emptor. But the tile is still affixed after 4 years...

    Heavy Rain, Water Level Rising, Gunnite pool

    Last week it was drought and I had to add water. This week it’s monsoon and it looks like the water is about to rise above the decking. Do I just put the filter in backwash or is there another setting to lower the water level? Thanks!
