    Fiberglass pool frozen.

    Our power has been out for more than 24 hours. It is 0 degrees in Fort Worth Tx. I drained the pump and filter, and feel like that is pretty safe. I have fiberglass pool and have been breaking the ice around the edges aver two hours because I am worried about it breaking the pool. Is that an...

    I think something froze

    Cleaned the skimmer out and it was full of water. No ice. The water was a little low, but I added some anyway. Cleaned the basket. I usually just run the skimmer and vacuume but went ahead and opened the main drain just to allow mor water. The pump sucks and fills up. Runs for a few seconds...

    Is that a Blister? - Fiberglass Pool

    Texas Spalsh and sktn77a, Thank you for the feedback. I should have put something next to the spots to give some idea about he size. They are really pretty small. Maybe about a 1/4 in or so. Glad to hear it is not blisttered. I am not really sure what that would look like. I am betting...

    Strange FC Test

    I wondered about that. I noticed the vile was a bit cloudy itself, and I usually swish some water in it when I am done and let it air dry. Next round, I will make sure and scrub it and make sure there is no residue. Thanks. H

    Is that a Blister? - Fiberglass Pool

    Good Morning, I started cleaning some spots and fine tuning details after a major SLAM and clean up job. Upon further inspection, I noticed that these black spots wer not stains as I thought but rather seem to be blisters in the pool surface. This is on the top step of an older fiberglass...
