    Equipotential Bonding

    I understand that. I'm not sure how to bond the double insulated intex pump, as there is no bonding lug and it is all plastic. Aside from that, I'm going to bond everything just as you've said. My plan was not only to bond the water or the water and the tub, that was just the part I was...

    Equipotential Bonding

    Little sneak peek of where it is after finishing up for today! I've used some old scrap carpet padding to insulate it (saved it after we put laminate down in the house). I have 6 layers around it. It's not a great deal of R value, but it seems to be much more than every other stock tank hot tub...

    Equipotential Bonding

    I have read the above link, but continue to go back and review it and other resources in my spare time and as I work out this project. Thank you for your assistance!

    Equipotential Bonding

    I'm working on building us a stock tank hot tub/pool. Based on what I can find in the NEC (not that I'm incredibly familiar with it) this pool doesn't necessarily qualify to need bonding. It's well below 42" and I think whether it would be considered portable is a grey area. It could well be...

    Stenner Econ T?

    My pool has a decommissioned FROG system. The top of the housing for the frog cartridges had a nice thick flat spot to drill and tap a hole to put the injection quill into. I suspect that if you look you can probably find a good spot to do the same. If not, I think you should be able to maybe...

    Tired of Manually Adding Liquid Chlorine

    I don't think I see a problem transporting 15 gallons or so. I used to haul e85 55 gallons at a time. I have a 55 gallon drum set up to pump from. I'm not sure how they would be set up to load me up, but when I got home I would pump it from the bed of the truck into the storage containers. I'd...

    Tired of Manually Adding Liquid Chlorine

    I have a LC pump. My pump and filter are in a small pool house beside the pool, and I mounted the LC pump on the wall in there. It feeds chlorine from a bucket, and I tapped an injection site into the pressure side plumbing after my filter. It has been working great and is a welcome addition! I...

    Cleaner questions

    I inherited a pool with a Polaris 380. It needed some work. I got it running but it still needed bout a full rebuild. I decided to just put that money towards a Pentair Warrior SE, and it was some of the best money I've ever spent!I haven't had to manually vac the pool in months. It's as clean...

    Suggestions for a robotic cleaner to deal with pine needles

    I also bought a Warrior SE from Margaret for about $700. I would pay double that if I had to. It works so well!

    Are there different baskets for the dolphin?

    Ooh this is good to know! My warrior is keeping up fine so far, but if it begins to struggle with the leaves this is th first thing I'll try!

    Selecting a Solar Cover

    I just pulled some measurements, and the pool is exactly 20x40. I'll get on ebay now and see what's available.

    Selecting a Solar Cover

    Hopefully it will only have to be installed once, left for a few months, then removed once per year. We shall see.

    Selecting a Solar Cover

    Once it warms up in the spring, the cover would come off and stay off until fall, that's for sure. Sounds like I'm good to just select the cheapest solar cover I can find that's large enough, then? At least for now.

    Selecting a Solar Cover

    I would imagine you can prevent some of it from falling off the cover into the pool though, no? I also wonder if I could blow some debris off the cover if it hasn't yet gotten wet, but I think as soon as you started to blow part of the cover would dip below the water and water would most likely...

    Selecting a Solar Cover

    I still want to try it this way this winter. I've done two so far the old way, and see which way seems the best for us.
