    Outside of ABG Pool...what did you put down around it?

    Similar to others, we just put down river rock over landscape fabric, specifically 1.5 tons of 1.5" stone, around a 24 ft round pool, in a 2 ft perimeter and used metal landscape edging to contain it. I

    Bubbles in pump filter basket - I'm STUMPED - multivalve setting filter vs. recirculate

    😊😊 The pump basket cleared itself of all bubles, in filter mode, w 1" EYEBALL, with pump on high speed, in about 6 minutes. Thank so much for your help. Any major mistakes w my plumbing set up? I probably won't bury lines this season? GREG

    I backwashed yesterday, water looked pretty clean at discharge hose.... No effect on psi readings. Should I stick with the 1" eye?

    Bubbles in pump filter basket - I'm STUMPED - multivalve setting filter vs. recirculate

    Mas985 - thanks for input. All valves are wide open. This is a simple plumbing set up, with the pump and filter located about 10 feet from the skimmer and return jet location. The 18 psi reading at high speed and 4 psi reading at low speed are the SAME for both the filter and recirculate...

    Bubbles in pump filter basket - I'm STUMPED - multivalve setting filter vs. recirculate

    Hi Folks - I had a new above ground pool installed about a week ago (see signature for pool/pump/filter specs). Since day one, I have had large bubble(s) in the pump basket in the lid.

    Show off your AGP Deck please!

    That is some nice work there. Can your share the material you used for balusters and how they were connected to the top and bottom parts of rail system. I will be embarking on a pool deck project this fall and like the clean look of the black balusters.

    Well, the Deck is Just ABOUT finished!

    Well done... Don't forget to smell the roses along the way and enjoy a beverage while dipping your toes in the clear water🙂

It nice ordering from a place like that where they usually have everything in stock. It seems when ever I got to the big box stores, they are out of 1 or 2 essential items on...
