    Safety Cover Anchors with spiral/auger-bit type shaft

    I stumbled across the americanearthenanchors site also - thank you for that. The ones with the top studs might do the trick. However, was hoping for "real" safety cover brass anchors. I know they existed as recent as last Fall 2019. . . . I just don't know how they disappeared completely from...

    Safety Cover Anchors with spiral/auger-bit type shaft

    I know. . . the anchors theoretically shouldn't move, but bricks have shifted in toward the pool. Granted, they need to be reset and a filler strip of brick installed to take up the spacing and make them secure again. However, the lateral forces of the straps caused them to move and the...

    Safety Cover Anchors with spiral/auger-bit type shaft

    My pool already has std. drilled anchors in a concrete deck. All set with MY pool/safety cover. It's my parent's paver deck giving us trouble. I saw those auger-type anchor tubes for YEARS, now don't see them anywhere. Hoping someone knows where to find them or who made them, or what they...

    Safety Cover Anchors with spiral/auger-bit type shaft

    For my parent's in-ground pool actually. Brick/paver deck around entire pool. Anchors installed at corners where 4 bricks meet. Bricks have moved slightly over time, top of anchor tubes start drifting toward pool edge, and cover straps start pulling up on the anchor tubes. When I saw the...

    Safety Cover Anchors with spiral/auger-bit type shaft

    Was looking for safety cover anchors with a spiral bit/auger-bit style shaft that rotated into the ground and helped prevent the anchors from pulling up in soil. I know I saw some of these online last year when I was looking, but can no longer find them doing a Google search. Can't remember...

    Doheny's Discovery, S200, Active20, Triton owners club

    Seriously looking at the DOLPHIN Active 20, Active 30 or AQUABOT Breeze IQ. Really like the idea of the dual-media filter baskets on the Dolphin Active models. The new Aquabot Elite looks like a nice unit, but seems like there are a number of complaints on Amazon (Aquabot says initial problems...

    Dolphin S200/Active 20/Doheny Discovery vs Aquabot Breeze IQ

    Yes, read through most of the 33 pages already - great thread. Interested to know if anyone has compared it to the Aquabot Breeze IQ or had any experience with the Breeze IQ.

    Dolphin S200/Active 20/Doheny Discovery vs Aquabot Breeze IQ

    Looking for a robotic cleaner for 16x36 in-ground vinyl liner pool with side steps. Want to clean to waterline. Had an Aquabot Turbo Classic that lasted 15+ years and needed only basic maintenance - fairly durable, cleaned well, bag picked up dead algae, but hated cleaning the filter bag...

    Heavy Green Algae, Getting Ready to SLAM, Running out of Time - Suggestions?

    Yes, there were multiple nights late last week losing less than 1 FC overnight, and multiple days of CC=0. Just got a CC over 0 yesterday as I let the chlorine level drop. I got the CYA of 36 using the Taylor K-2006 test kit, wasn't quite at "35" mark on the tube when the black dot disappeared...

    Heavy Green Algae, Getting Ready to SLAM, Running out of Time - Suggestions?

    Sorry, haven't had time to post results in last few days, but have been keeping chlorine levels at SLAM level until this past weekend, when I let them drop. 8/25 - 6pm Used K-2006 Test Kit and ran a full set of tests FC: 3 CC: ~(.5) PH: 7.6 TA: 110 CYA: 36 I have let the FC level drop from...

    Heavy Green Algae, Getting Ready to SLAM, Running out of Time - Suggestions?

    Haven't had a chance to play "mad scientist" yet. Haven't tested anything except chlorine levels, and figured Lelie's had to be close when they tested CYA the other day and told me "45", but I see I'll have to re-test! Haven't needed to add much shock since algae went "gray". Water still...

    Heavy Green Algae, Getting Ready to SLAM, Running out of Time - Suggestions?

    8/19 (Wed) note: Haven't added any shock since 1am 10:00am: FC: 18 (test kit results) CC: 0 Pool still about same cloudiness level as last 2 days. Installed SLIME BAGS on the (2) returns, cleaned the Aquabot again, and brushed this morning. Going to see if I can find some DE today and give...

    Heavy Green Algae, Getting Ready to SLAM, Running out of Time - Suggestions?

    Thanks April - Actually haven't backwashed since Monday, since it's holding steady at 15psi. Just was curious at this "stage" of clearing algae whether it was better to backwash frequently or not, even though pressure is not rising. From you answers above, clearly sounds like I should just...

    Heavy Green Algae, Getting Ready to SLAM, Running out of Time - Suggestions?

    Thanks for checking in. I have patience on this one! Just wanted to make sure I didn't need to do something else. I'll keep at it. Just seemed strange how filter would rise in pressure 10psi (to 25psi) within minutes when vacuuming or in 2 hours (if I wasn't vacuuming) and needed backwashed...

    Heavy Green Algae, Getting Ready to SLAM, Running out of Time - Suggestions?

    Didn't get a chance to post yesterday. However, there is obviously good progress. - Green tint in water is gone. Now water is a cloudy gray. - Filter is not loading up every 2 hours with green algae - went all day yesterday after a backwash and remained at 15psi. Which means I wasn't...
