    Coping Grout

    Thanks for the reply, sorry I been a nuts week just getting back. That's what I thought as well. I have 250' of 1/2" joints to fill this summer....looks like I have another 100' or so to do.

    Coping Grout

    Anyone have suggestions on how I can fix this? The pool was built back in the 80s and refinished last year. The grouting is a ish show so my winter project is to fix it up. I'm thinking I'll need to grind out all the grouting around the pool and come back with some sort of silicone. We...

    Pool Drainage

    I didn't even think about that. There is a random drain by the pool which could be tied in like that. I'll check that out tonight, thanks.

    Pool Drainage

    We had a heck of a rain last night which filled our pool and it overflowed. This morning when we woke up the water was back below the coping about even with the top of the tiles/bottom of the coping. I can see no overflow drain anywhere. Did all that water seep through the grout? I can't...

    First-time Homeowner & Pool owner | A few questions + pictures of my setup

    Make sure to clean the impeller after you clean out the line. Probably should do it a couple of times after running the pump with all the debris that was in there. I was having similar problems and when I finally clean that out so many other issues fixed themselves.

    Few Quick Questions

    For the fountain, it looks like there are some deck jets I'm hoping will work. The pentair ones say they'll shoot 8' but I'm guessing I won't get all of that from this pipe. It's about 3-4 foot away, so I hope I can get that out of it. The pool is in direct sun pretty much always so I'm...

    Few Quick Questions

    I have a couple of questions I figured I'd compile into one post. Just bought a house with an old pool. We redid the plaster, tile, and coping and now I'm getting on to the operational side of things. 1. We removed the slide but now have a 1.5' pipe sticking up through the concrete with a...

    Plaster Removal

    Hi everyone, new guy here.... So we're buying a house with a neglected 20'x40'x9.5' pool. Had an inspector come out yesterday to look it over and give a quote on the resurface. Overall it was exactly as we thought only real issue was the pool needed to be resurfaced. The quote came in at 15k...
