    tanning ledge sizes

    We have a 8 ft (circumference) ledge but its not for tanning. We got it because I have small kids and I like to just sit in the water and watch. My friends and I hang out there also while the kids are swimming and my husband and I have used it as a sort of hot tubby area in cooler weather (just...

    What kind of ( bug?) Is this?

    Update...yes it was a moth. It looked so big and scary to me lol! I did scoop it out and it was still moving but I didn't check today to see. And I found my first dead mouse in the skimmer! Fun times.

    What kind of ( bug?) Is this?

I dont know if it bites, stings, is poisonous or what! Left him in the pool. Yuck! It was brown on one side and black with...

    What color is this? Or whats my ph?

    So I redid my test, again, and my chlorine is 6 now. But what my ph color problem is, is that I ordered r0004, not r0014, thinking they were the same thing. Is there a way to use it or do I need to order the correct regent? I have a big bottle.

    What color is this? Or whats my ph?

    I just looked at my logs. On the May 3rd AM I logged that my ph was 9 (dark orange) and ta was 50. I then added ma to bring my ph down. Tested that evening after swimming for 5 hours with 6 kids and the pool slide running, and my ph was the lighter orange but ta was now 40. Then on the 4th, we...

    What color is this? Or whats my ph?

    I added baking soda yesterday. I just tested and my TA is now 80 (it was light pink at 7 drops but got a little darker with 8). My ph is still an orange color with 4 drops, so I'm not sure what it is really.... And I've always wondered, with the CH test, when adding r-0012, do I mix between...

    Aluminum furniture and salt water pool

    I'm pretty sure I know the answer already, but am hoping I'm wrong lol. I'm looking for (covered) sitting area furniture and I don't want the usual wicker look. I want a more modern vibe. Everything I see in that category usually has an aluminum frame. How is that with a salt washer pool? Any...
