    I think USPS lost my TFT order

    USPS is the worst. This past month I had several notifications my package was delivered (several different packages) when it wasn't, only for them to be delivered a week or so later. Also, I get notices saying could not access front door, which is hogwash. I now try to pay extra for shipping to...

    Questions about DE for sand filter

    Funny! And as @hwy17 said above, Cali likely has gone too far in some of this, but I will say this stuff is very fine powder and I can see how inhaling it can be bad for you. I live in cancer alley in Louisiana and I think I'm exposed to enough pulmonary toxins thqat best to be careful with it...

    CYA directly into pool

    Brushing and vacuum seemed to take care of it. I don't think it discolored the plaster but I'll look more closely soon. Thanks.

Is that ok or am I risking damaging the plaster? Any remedy for this mistake? Also, yay or nay on running my pool robot in the...

    Pool deck drainage

    part of the problem was a neighbor's chinese tallow tree that encroached over my deck since we bought the house, and used to rain a ton of debris onto our deck, so I have pulled that square drain cover before to clear it out in that localized spot. I have no idea if the pipe is clogged up or how...

    Pool deck drainage

    We have been getting some torrential rains from storm fronts moving through over the past months and my pool has overflowed onto my deck several times. Looks like I have to unclog the deck drainage because the deck drains very slow, exacerbating the problem, causing a little lake, and dragging...
