    Single speed pump vs. Variable speed pump

    At 3/4 hp running at a proper schedule it will take a few years for a vsp to equal the cost, but running your pump 24/7 I wouldn't be surprised if it's 1 year.

    1st SLAM, persistent floor algae

Pic uploader didn't work yesterday and I was buzy. Tested 3 times over the course of the day, if I recall 8, 6.5...

    1st SLAM, persistent floor algae

    I'm calling this my 1st slam because I've only had to bump the clorine twice in the 4+ years of tfp style of pool care, didn't really need to hold the fc to fix the problem.

    Pump peculiarities with the electrics

    Might want to see if they sell a 1/2 hp pump as if they don't the chances messing up impellers is lower Typically those watts meters are inaccurate and only good for comparing.

    Pump peculiarities with the electrics

    My guess is that they use a 1/2 hp motor for both 1/2 hp and 1/3 hp impellers, and you got a 1/3 hp labeled motor with a 1/2 hp impeller Probably wrong

    Hard to put up pool....

    Intex 18’ x 9’ XPS with pressure treated boards advise.

    Find some pavers or pour a concrete footer, wood plus water won't work
