    Once I find the drain plugs, what do I need to look for with them?

    Opened to a pond, still cloudy and other problems...

    There are some bubbles coming out of the return jet but not anymore than there was last year. The pump basket isn't churning but there are lots of little bubbles but "a" bubble in the top as you mentioned. I replaced the o ring. Where are the drain plugs? There is one right near the basket on...

    Opened to a pond, still cloudy and other problems...

    My winter cover had a hole in it and we opened the pool 2 weeks ago to a pond with lots of frogs and green water. After all of the organic material was vacuumed and scooped out, I brought the pool water level up to where it is supposed to be and added the chemicals needed. I shocked it 3 times...

    How to price a used pool

    I am considering giving up on the above ground pool fiasco. I want to sell it (without the liner). What would be a good starting point to ask for it? Here are the specs: 24' above ground pool (no liner). Will include deck ladder (2 years old), Diver Dave vacuum (4 years old), Hayward...

    Holes......again!

    If I was going to pour a concrete slab, I might as well install an inground pool. Bugs have always been plentiful here in the woods of WV, but I never heard of anyone having a problem with them under pool liners and chewing holes. Any other ideas on how to keep them out from under the liner?

    Holes......again!

    Well, looks like I am revisiting this topic again this year. We are on our 4th liner in 5 years (this one was put in new at closing last year). I have been battling pin-holes all season long and just got through patching about 6 today. We have noticed alot of bugs such as ants, centipedes and...

    constantly fighting holes in new liner

    Well, looks like I am bringing this thread back to life. We have had the pool open (with a new liner) and everything has been fine up until this evening. We noticed that our problem area is having issues again. We noticed a stream of water running down the hill and the water level had dropped...

    Intex SWG reset switch?

    It is plugged into a multiplug that is plugged into the gfci where the pump is running with no problems. I reset that gfci just to make sure. is there supposed to be a reset on the SWG itself?

    Intex SWG reset switch?

    This is the 2nd full season opening for our Intex SWG. It worked fine until now. I noticed there was no chlorine in the pool, so I immediately checked the machine and it was not even on! I tried multiple outlets and it still wont work. Is there a reset switch on this thing at all?
