    Spillover mode during freeze protection Jandy

    I experienced this last winter as well with my Jandy equipment. On nights below freezing, I would wake up to exposed plaster in the spa due to the freeze protection running all night. If we were below freezing for an extended period, the spa jets would be out of the water and water would get...

    This right here was my thoughts as well. You guys are so good at what you do, that "normal" people have not reason to stick around. You teach them the ways of TFP, they learn it, and their pools are perfect. What reason do they have to come back? I browse the forums still but a lot less than...

    If we are keeping score, add me to the group of wanting the "Mark All As Read" button back. I know I'm not an expert here, but I do try to read the forums daily, and specifically look at new posts and help give advice where I can. There are many threads I just skip over because I know I can't...

    56k Gallon Pool / Double SWG? (Jandy)

    It seems most robots from maytronics and Polaris do a great job. If I were you and shopping for a robot, I would pay special attention to cord length and where you intend on plugging the robot in near your pool due to its size. You will want your robot to reach all corners of the pool. I...

    New Pool Build in SoCal

    Do you know what make and model of the bubblers are? Maybe their website has a spec listed for them. I am wondering if this is limitation of the bubbler or is it a limitation of the plumbing from your PB. I have a separate water feature pump for my bubblers. At full pump speed the bubblers...

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    We starting off setting it to 85 in April/May. My power bill increased around $200 then. Once Summer was in full swing we set it to 90 and it really on ran at night. June/July/August it added $100-$150 per month. Its still set to 90 but daytime highs are low 80s/high 70s right now. I expect...

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    Dunnrite basketball and volleyball combo set using their 2-3/8" brass anchors so we can switch it out for the volleyball net. And yes, we are quickly approaching the time to shut down the heat pump. Once daily highs drop into the low 70s we are calling it for the season.

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    They are just regular pollywopd chairs. I think they are model number adr 610. They have a taller seat bottom than the standard pollywood Adirondacks.
