    Punctured holes in cover

    Hi all, So it seems the cost to repair by Loop Loc is going to be around $400-500 shipping included. I talked to our local store today and they said that a patch kit should be okay. They said they have seen the cover last for 20+ years and it could potentially lower the lifespan a bit by having...

    Punctured holes in cover

    Both of our properties are fenced in. They are a neighbor that lives behind us and we have a shared fence with them. Here are some pictures. In the first picture you can sort of see a bit of slack in the cover and how it is wrinkled (look near the bottom of the picture near the water.

    Punctured holes in cover

    Thanks for the replies all! I'm definitely hoping that the neighbor fixes the issue. Other than putting a taller fence up, I don't have any ideas. The neighbor claimed they would put some chicken wire across the top. Might not look as nice, but oh well. The worst part was finding out that this...

    Punctured holes in cover

    Hi, We just purchased a Loop Loc safety cover 3 months ago. Today, I found a neighbors dog in my backyard running on our brand new cover. It punctured quite a few holes in the cover. One hole is about the size of a penny, and the others are quite a bit smaller. But they are all in sets, clearly...

    Repairing pool coping

    We have a 15x30 vinyl inground pool with metal coping. The coping is rusting and we just started to fix some of it. To fix it, I've removed as much of the rust as I can, prime it with rust converter, and painting over with an oil based paint. This was supposed to all be done when we were...

    Repairing cracks in our concrete pool deck

    Hi all, We have a 15x30 oval inground pool. Around the pool is a 30" concrete deck. The pool was built in 1977 and still has the original concrete deck and coping. There are some rather large cracks that we want to take care of before our first winter with the pool. Is there a recommend product...

    Sand in our pool - caused by multiport valve?

    Thanks for the replies. I didn't know what dead algae looked like. Most of it is dead algae. Some of it is definitely sand, but that could be from the patio.

    Sand in our pool - caused by multiport valve?

    Hi, When we purchased our house last year, the pool inspector noticed sand in the pool. He assumed that this was caused by a broken lateral in the sand filter. We had the sellers repair this, and they went ahead and replaced the entire filter with a Hayward Pro Series S210S filter. However...

    One skimmer and one return line for entire pool

    Thank you for the replies! The pump HP is 1.0, but says SF of 1.4. I'm not entirely sure what all would be useful on this, but here are some pictures!

    Rusted coping - How to repair?

    That is what I figured. Hopefully it just holds up until we are out of the house. Fortunately, it doesn't seem as though it will rust through anytime soon.

    Rusted coping - How to repair?

    I figured as such. The rust will come back though, correct? There are spots that I wont be able to get to, especially areas like behind the coping. The rust converter will just help delay?

    Rusted coping - How to repair?

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, there are spots we won't be able to get, so it will come back. It's rusting on both sides of the coping.

    One skimmer and one return line for entire pool

    Hi all, I have a 15x30 inground vinyl pool. The pool is over 40 years old and has black polyethylene piping. Currently, there is 1 return line (there used to be 2, but 1 was closed by the previous owners), 1 skimmer, and 1 main drain. We have a leak in our return line and I believe another leak...

    Rusted coping - How to repair?

    It's not too rusted. I talked with a professional in the area who thought treating it would be fine. Given that it's the original coping, they didn't think it was too bad. The only advice he gave me was to sand off the rust and put a rubber based paint over it (here is what he recommend: Olympic...

    Rusted coping - How to repair?

    Thanks for the help! Unfortunately, with the liner in, there isn't much I can do. I could work in sections by pulling the liner out of the track, scraping the rust off and out of the liner track, prime w/ rustoleum and paint, then put the liner back in. I could drain the water quite a bit to...
