    Show off your AGP Deck please!

    Thanks! We have a nice sized lot (1.5 acre) but most of it is either sloped or too rocky to do anything with it. Would have probably cost the same, if not more to get it level and usable, so we opted for a bigger sized deck to get some use out of the yard.

    Show off your AGP Deck please!

    Here's mine, finished a few weeks ago. Border around the pool runs level with the rail, and the contractor hugged the rail so tight you couldn't fit a leaf through there, which is what I wanted. Loop-loc pool cover apparently came out with an anchor system specifically for composite decking, I'm...

    Large Deck Extension wrapped around AGP. PICS!

    All done!! Thanks for checking it out. If you're in the NY Rockland County area, this monstrosity of a deck can be accredited to Sean at Fine Line Construction/Ren. Great guy with amazing woodworking skills.

    Adding salt without SWG?

    Hey all, This may sound weird but I'm wondering if adding salt to my spa without the use of a SWG will help to improve the "feel" of the water. I did a full round of testing last night and needed to bump up my CH and TA a bit. I'm not really interested in using a SWG, at least not this year...

    Pool deck footing/bonding wire

    Any way you can do the footings first and the bonding wire after?

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    Hey bud Chlorine consumption has all but stopped. Tested Friday night at 8.5, 24 hours later was 8.0. Either something was actually in there eating up chlorine, or chlorine wasn't stable at that level with the high temperature? I don't know for sure but everything seems fine now. Unfortunately...

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    The best I can do with the SimpleClear is to de-wire it in the control panel of the spa, as it is hard wired. I just cannot find info on that thing at all. I want to yank it out entirely and see exactly how it works. Right now all I see is a power cable and a single tube going somewhere into...

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    Lost another 7.5 FC on the next 24 hours. Would anybody recommend the next thing to eliminate? I've tested for ammonia, test came back good, tested for phosphates, clear. I want to either lower the standby temp or shut down the UV, but not at the same time because I'm determined to pinpoint the...

    Dichlor/Bleach Method - why not add stabilizer to start instead of waiting for Dichlor to dissolve?

    I added HTH stabilizer granules and started with liquid chlorine, because it's what I had. I don't think there's a difference. Only thing is, the amount of granules needed is so tiny that you need a kitchen scale to weigh them correctly. You're not adding by the jug like you would with a pool.

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    Latest update for anyone following, I’m not getting consistent testing like I wish I could, but the gist of it is I lost 14ppm of FC over 24 hours. Started at 30 and ended at 16. I’m putting down the bleach for a while, I want to see what happens at lower FC levels. I’ve been far over shock...

    What steps to take?

    I had a trench like that around my pool when they leveled it. It sat over the winter collecting water, then freezing/thawing, which I suspect got under my pool and pitted the floor pretty badly. My solution, although I have since built a deck around the pool, was to backfill with a dirt/sand...

    My first and last pool Install

    My floor is extremely pitted as well, I'm guessing water got under there over the winter and had it's fun moving stuff around. At first I hated it but now it almost makes it easier to walk around, gives a bit of traction lol. Did you buy those steps new or it came with the whole pool setup...
