    How would you fix this plumbing?

    So I had permanent electrical run out to the pump last year (with a ground around the pool), however, they used the existing plumbing I had and you can see the return to the pool was dangling. How would you fix this so that it's more rigid? Would you do a couple 45 turns down to the ground with...

    Filter Crack

    Well, called Hayward and I’ve got a ticket # and waiting for a call back from a technician in the next 24-48 hours. Hopefully we can get the body of the filter replaced at no cost. 🤞🏼 For now, filter is on recirculate.

    Filter Crack

    Was floating around the pool when I noticed the outside of our fence was shiny. Went over and saw that the filter is spraying water out the top. Thankfully it’s not a bad crack yet. Looks like it’s cracked along the seam of the sand filter up near the top. What are my options here. Bought new...

    Menards pool shock B1G1 starting tomorrow

    Usually Menards will post the ad a few days ahead of time no? I would hate to wait and see if we do get the deal, and then not be able to at least get 11% off.

    Dirt/Dead Algae?

    Thanks! Yup - I’ve got CYA and a sock - will be putting it in probably today or tomorrow. I’m pretty sure it’s dirt/pollen. My skimmer socks get a thick layer of yellow stuff by the end of the day. I also just rinsed a couple of socks I used the last few days in a bucket...and at the bottom of...

    Dirt/Dead Algae?

    So when I would swim last year, I took a pair of goggles and went to the bottom - it almost looks like brown dust. It sweeps up very easy. Once it gets disturbed, it disappears in the water. Test results are all in normal spec... FC - 5 CC - 0 PH - 7.5 CH - 300 TA - 120 CYA - 20 Not worried...
