    Pool Return Part Help Please

    So when closing my pool this week, I couldn't put the plug on one of returns because part where the eyeball thing threads in was completely stuck. I ended up getting it out but not without damaging the part. So what part of parts do I need to order? I believe the opening is 1 1/2 inch. Thanks,

    Pump making strange sound

    Thanks! Wiped it clean with some paper towel then doused it with the alcohol. Let it air dry for about 20 minutes and then finished the install. Pump is much quieter and moving water well. I do have a minor leak on the output. Something to deal with on the weekend. I also still seeing some...

    Pump making strange sound

    So got my new pump and I got a seal kit with it. Unbeknownst to me, I didn't realize you're not supposed to touch the white ceramic part of the shaft seal. Well I touched, my 12 year old son touch it. Can I still use it? Can it be cleaned? Not entirely sure why touching it is a problem. Thanks

    Pump making strange sound

    Thanks for the advice folks. I think the churning is due to the fact I just opened the pool and there is still air in the lines. Due to the racket the pump is making I haven't run it long enough to get it all clear. Anyway, I will replace the motor and keep an eye on it. Thanks.

    Pump making strange sound

    Man, just looked at a video on how to replace the bearings. Don't have the tools, skill or the patience so looks like a new pump. Also, why do you think I have a suction side air leak? Thanks,

    If you can't hear the video, try clicking on it. Should expand out and then the audio should work.

    Pump making strange sound

    I'm hoping someone can help me with a strange sound coming from my pool pump. Rather than trying to describe the sound, I've got a short video New video by Jeremy Kalman This happened when opening the pool and starting the pump for the first time this season. Water is moving. No leaks either. I...

    Volleyball system recommended?

    What shape do you plan for the pool? Have you considered having the deep end in the middle?

    Turtle in the pool, what kind?

    First year I had my pool, I foundd a trio of baby snappers floating in my pool. There's a creek behind my property. I guess on their way there from hatching, they decided the pool was the better bet. It was not. I gathered them up and took them to the creek but they were very lethargic. I doubt...

    iPad or Laptop

    I think you made the right choice. I have a desktop to do more serious and intensive work. A tablet for everything else.
