    Advice needed - replacing 5 foot retaining wall very near pool

    Thanks for you input @jimmythegreek I'm not sure what you mean by engineered and stamed? The distance from the wall to the concrete is only 2 feet. The inspector says he will not pass the wall if it doesn't have a 6ft geo grid on the top layer. The wall will be 5ft tall at most. Moving the...

    Advice needed - replacing 5 foot retaining wall very near pool

    Hello TFP! I really need some advice.

We hired a company to replace the tie wall with...

    Finally got my liner installed. Since I was doing it myself for the first time I went with the cheapest liner I could get just in case I messed it up. We installed the GLI Panama 20 mil. We are very happy with the liner.

    Stripped Screws in Hayward Main Drain Gasket

    I had the same problem. I discovered my loose screw while prepping for a new liner install so the water was already drained. I emailed hayward to ask their advice and and they said: "Please use the part number WGX1048EKIT, this is a brass insert and screw kit." Assuming your screw type is...

    HELP - New liner install starting to float - Need advice

    i ended sucking most of it out with a transfer pump and hose behind the liner, but there is still some left. Hoping as the pool fills it will press it all out where ever it came in from. I think draining and redoing is too risky and might cause more problems having already put the main drain...
