    Poles Sinking

    We had a 16' Round.. the pavers are fine for the round pools, the force of weight is different (more outward hence the strap) than actual down force.. our pavers lasted3 years til we took down the pool.. BE SURE IT IS COMPACTED DIRT... you go making the soil loose and giving the pavers a...

    hard pipe hookups

    So I used some of my 1.5" hose I have (I clean carpets, so i have plenty of this) used a single barb (larger smooth area to clamp to) and ran 3', cutting out that elbow. Also found my pump inlet had 2 o-rings together, so i took out the female o-ring and let the male side do the job. Inside...

    hard pipe hookups

    YeaI was figuring that to... I havent had much luck with the flexible stuff... maybe I need just the single barbed hose connector, instead of the multi barb

    Ok I need some help, odd water loss??

    Not really, there is a slight drip from the area leading to the filter... but nothing that would allow this type of "dump" of water... Shy of filling it back up, i am at a loss... Like I said, last night before bed, fine.. then boom. I want to fix it before I fill up.. Only other thing I can...

    hard pipe hookups

    So I got my hard piping done, but with the curve of the pool, it put stress on the threading.... So how do you handle this?? Return line, 1st hookup on the pool

    Ok I need some help, odd water loss??

    So I went out and checked the pool today (only been up 2 days, and have another issue, anyway) and the pool level dropped A TON see pic... only thing I can figure it came from the pump (wasn't ran) look at the pics and tell me what you think?? You can see where it came from (dirt trail) and...

    SWG and water hardness???

    Yes its very hard.. I dont think you can soften water once in the pool can you??? I guess if you ran a softener in-line of you pump?? hahahahah Otherwise.. looks like i have to stick with good ole chlorine... i got pretty good with my old pool of keeping it clean, yet not overly smelly.. But...

    Placement/Location of through wall skimmer Intex Ultra Frame

    This is tough, A. its pretty close to a fence so the winds would not be a factor, or they "swirl" due to the fence, house, shed, etc B. new setup so I have no idea where things will accumulate..

    SWG and water hardness???

    So a handful of years ago with our 16' round I tried out a SWG system.. seemed to work ok.. but after a little while, my diode that makes the gas was getting deposits on it pretty quick.. (seemed like i was cleaning it 2 or 3 times a week) Any ideas??? I just fill up from city water (we are...

    SO how much is to much??? Leveling??

    So rented a transit laser level, got my blocks all leveled out... Come to find out I am a little farther off grade then I thought I was.. a few of the blocks are about 2" higher than the insulation sheeting I have under the pool... Is this a huge issue, or are the blocks more important (ok NM...
