    Finally have trees!

    Greetings y'all! It's been a while. I moved this year. Bought a 31' round, 21k gal pool and loving it. Haven't had any issues. I think in part , because I took advice of my pool contractor and just let pump run 24/7 for the last 16 weeks. I know some of us will debate that, but the...

    4 weeks in

    Thanks! It sounds like there's some information on the website that I couldn't get from reading the manual, and I was reading the manual online, but I downloaded it from another source. It does seem problematic with the limited amount of chlorine it will generate. I'm going to have to give...

    Just moved and installed a new pool and I'm a little unfamiliar with the Saltron Retro system; but it can't be that much different than others in principle. FC:5.5 PH: 7.8 TA:110 CYA:70 I know how to adjust the PH and TA, but I was curious what the forums thoughts were on the FC of 5.5. I think...

    Backyard ideas- deck and ladder

    I bought a 30' Trevi pool and am working on completing my oasis. Only been in the house for 60 days. I hate to say this, I have no ideas- and my costs are mounting up. I was looking at a deck to bridge the area between the patio and the pool...but I'm out of money for this season...

    Another extension cord question

    I did finally find someone to do this and do it right. Thank you for all of your help. My pictures are too large to upload except for this one for some reason. There is a plate inside the skimmer, a line around the pool, and then connected to the pump.

    I can't help but feel like this becoming a complete mess. The pool is already built and in use.

    Another extension cord question

    I had a contractor come out today, after speaking with the local codes inspector. We took some components off of my Trevi 211 pool to see if the supports were metal- it appears it is all resin. After that he called me this morning and said they'll have to bond the water, the pump, and bury the...

    Another extension cord question

    I got a quote for this today for about $2100, and this includes bonding. Is this typical? Wow. I notice in the information that bonding is required for pools above 4'. Would one take this to include a 4' pool as well?

    Filling 'er up

    I'm about 24 hours into the fill on my 30'. Just relocated for work and wanted to go big. What are some ideas out there to enjoy your pool and not spend a fortune with all of the trim around the pool? Here's a link to pool: New photo by Carlton Clay Relationship to house...

    Another extension cord question

    Thank you team, this was never my intention; so I appreciate the info. This will get resolved quickly I hope. I really need the pool in place before I search for contractors. I have contacted a contractor- but he hasn't even found the time to come take a lok. People do this all the time...

    Another extension cord question

    I'm buying a 30' above ground pool. Until I can get an electrician to come out and run me a line to the pool; I'm going to run an extension cord to the pool. It will likely be 50'-75'- running a Pentair SD-40 1.5 hp system with a Saltron Retro Salt Water Generator. I have a new outdoor GFCI...
