    Solar Covers Online

    I bought mine from Amazon too. Once I trimmed the outside to shape, I cut the whole thing into 4 smaller pieces. This way, one person (me! lol) can easily remove it and put it back on without help.

    Liquid chlorine shelf life

    To share my recent experience.... Last year, I stocked up on 10% in the Spring as the pandemic got rolling. Not too long after, I decided to just go ahead and get a swg. I gave a lot of it away, but I kept some of it in case I needed to boost my levels for heavy usage or whatever. Mine was...

    Is my new Warrior SE a lemon?

    Hi Jim, thanks for the response. Yes, when I turn it on, it moves forward a little bit and you can see water coming out and bubbling at the surface. It then moves backward and stays there for 7 - 10 seconds and then moves on its way. As I said, the stairs aren't really a major issue. I usually...

    Is my new Warrior SE a lemon?

    Longish post - sorry... I recently bought a new Warrior SE when our Tigershark died at the start of the season. We had the Tigershark since we bought the home, as the owner was kind enough to leave it behind, so it’s the one I’ve ever owned. I loved that thing. Other than getting hung up on the...

    Hi from North East Pennsylvania

    Welcome, fellow PA (soon to be) pool owner! :wave: This website rocks....I wouldn't want to own a pool without it.

    Bowing Walls

    I'm no AGP expert, but I figured I'd give you a bump so that someone who is can chime in!

    Bird 🦅 droppings

    I have nothing to offer you other than my empathy! I am going through this right now as well (for the 4th year in a row) and it's miserable. I have posted in the past multiple times about my struggle with this and I've tried a LOT of things without success. This year, I bought Bird XPeller Pro...

    Question about Beach Entry

    As an avid diver who hasn't traveled since Jan 2020, I did a pool dive last year! lol I initially went in to take a closer look at some stains and take some pictures of them... and then I just stayed down there a while with my eyes closed, listening to my bubbles :)

    Coming chlorine shortage? - It is Here!

    I did a similar thing last year. After the pandemic got rolling, I was getting concerned about chlorine shortages going into the summer. In May, I bought like 32 jugs of 10% and put it in my (dark, 69 degree-ish) basement. A few weeks later, after a lot of thought/debate, we decided to pull the...

    Marina Supply - Response Time

    We discovered that our robot died upon opening last Wednesday. It was the one we inherited with the house 4 years ago. As I just didn't feel like spending a day researching robots and wanted one fast, I remembered the name Marina Pool & Spa recommended from this site. Called mid-day, got right...

    New startup SWG

    Nothing to add, really, but just wanted to say hello to a fellow York County'er! We bought our SWG last year and absolutely love it - you will too once you get it dialed in. It takes a little trial and error at first, but it made pool care SO EASY last year. Enjoy! :wave:

    Will chemicals keep toads out of pool?

    I keep my pool at the proper chemical levels, but it's never stopped the toads (or the frogs). We do have a "frog pond" about 20 - 25 ft from our pool, so they tend to stay (and breed) there, but every once in a while they make their way into the big pool for a swim. We also use frog logs to...

    Losing Prime

    Hi Mike, I'm no expert in this area, but here is an older thread about a similar issue. Might give you some ideas to trouble shoot while the experts chime in! https://www.troublefreepool.com/threads/water-shoots-out-of-skimmer-basket.10137/
