    Need an Above Ground Vacuum Recommendation

    Hey guys, i have an above ground pool and looking for a vacuum recommendation. Had a hayward diver dan for a while and i truly despise that thing. Suction just never did work correctly for me.

    Sand At The Bottom of My Pool

    I did a little digging and I can see someone else complaining about it. I'm not sure if this is the original disconnect or if the previous guy that fixed my pool used this glue job to get the filter working. The part is only $40, so i'm thinking instead of just gluing it together it might be...

    Sand At The Bottom of My Pool

    DIY Solar Cover Roller

    So the first one--if it is ABS DWV it is ok--even if it doesn't say Cellular Core or Foam Core? Plus for a 20 Ft piece (looks like no 10ft) it has to be ordered in multiples of 30! Should we do a group buy LOL?
