    I think it's time to upgrade...

    Ive been told that you should always put the check valve after the pump and not before it or you can create an entrapment situation.

    Also check all your hose connections - one of them is probably leaking. Go segment by segment and twist them as the pump is running and you’ll hear the sucking when you find it.

    What dries out a liner?

    So that sounds like it was mismeasured... I’m watching mine fill right now - so far so good :) - - - Updated - - - I know right?!? I’m a bum! :( The reason for the replacement is the extensive sun rot above the waterline on the two sides that get sun almost all day long. Basically the...

    What dries out a liner?

    My pH would drift up - I've played with the calculator and at or above 8.6 it gets me to 6 or above for the CSI which is indicated to be harsh for all pool surfaces. I target my CYA for 50 given how much sun the pool gets. Apparently that top edge of the liner along the bead that isn't...

    What dries out a liner?

    I'm replacing my liner after only 6 years due to extensive sun rot. Apparently the UltraMayd liner's only advantage is that the warranty does cover sun rot so I might be able to see a 50% pro-rated savings on the retail (what the installer pays) for a replacement liner. My new installer says...

    yet another stenner install and timer system

    Also, I ordered a cover/boot for the pump - I don't remember these existing when I bought mine. It's like a flexible vinyl and covers the pump motor and head. Along with the rain shield it should keep it much better protected as I have mine outside and somewhat exposed. There's still a gap at...

    yet another stenner install and timer system

    Wanted to say thanks btw - This thread prodded me to finally get around to changing out the tube in the pump and boy did I barely do it in time - it was starting to seep CL. I also checked the check valve (haha) and it wasn't closing properly due to some salt buildup. I tried cleaning as per...

    HELP!! Pool leaking water 6 inches in 2 hrs!!

    You need to trace every opening in the pool back to one of the pipes in the pool shed. That under pool one sounds like a suction drain for hydrostatic pressure - someone else on here had a setup like that and it was only intended to be used if draining the pool so as to suck out water from...
