    DE filter pressure gauge rising

    buying a test kit (best time to?)

    Pretty basic question, but my drop bottles and test kit is pretty much out. Is there a "season" to buy smartly? What I mean is, I don't want to purchase a kit that expires January 2019....or buy old stuff, so when is good to buy so that doesn't happen? thoughts?

    They are lifts from the foundation under the pool. Cracking of some sort. I think CJ hit it on the head. I'll just have to watch them for now and see how things go. Question: Whats the worst case scenerio......? At the crack site it stretches the liner and then is there a way to...

    Vinyl pool floor shifting_request advice

    ugh. thanks for Fyi. The pool is about 15 or so years old. The pool liner though is new as of April 2017 when we purchased the house. I've noticed these "crack pop ups" as I call them show more and more over the past year.....so i've got my concerned face on. Thinking ahead, will...

    How to make a SWG Dummy Cell_just an idea_worked for me
