    Noisy Pump 1 yr old

    US Motors Emerson is another large manufacturer of pool motors, their model EUST1102 would be identical to the UST1102. I'll let others maybe comment on which brand they might prefer, but from my personal experience haven't noticed a ton of reviews one way or the other.

    which RayPaK heater?

    The Raypak 406A series, and model # 014941 is the Cupro-Nickel version. That model is Natural gas and also standard emission, I'm assuming you wouldn't need the Low NOx version which is a code requirement in some counties.

    which RayPaK heater?

    Since you do have a SWG I would suggest looking at a Cupro-Nickel model (as opposed to copper), the heat exchanger is more resistant to corrosion that can come from chemical imbalances and salt corrosion. Might be a little more upfront but could be worth it long term. Raypak is a great brand...

    Replacing salt cell

    I would stick with the 40k cell, the cost savings of downsizing will be minimal, if there is any at all. Living in AZ you are going to get a lot of use out of that cell, definitely stick with the 40k. It will last longer and handle the higher temps more easily.

    bio active

    Seems like success has been 50/50...here are a few reviews I have seen: Good Review: "My cya level was so high that I had to use this product 3 times. It brought the cya level down a little each time until finally it was below 100. Apparently for best results you need to make sure your ph and...

    SWG Experienced -> what are the pros and cons of SWG vs. non-SWG ?

    I agree with the points made above by Texas Splash, although not sure about the "higher cya means higher slam fc level...." comment, but it's likely just the wording throwing me off. PRO -A salt chlorination system will help keep your FC level more consistently balanced, less spikes and drops...

    Need recommendation for good custom winter cover

    Your co-worker's rectangular pool probably fits a generic shape that was available, which can save on the cost quite a bit. Your shape unfortunately will have to be a custom safety cover. Not sure if you are set on a Safety cover or not, but you could also consider a Winter cover instead...

    Need recommendation for good custom winter cover

    I would say under $1k is going to be tough to find. One of our recent custom quotes was for a pool that was 25' by 10' and very roughly the same shape as yours, the basic mesh option came out to be around $1200. IMO that would probably be the minimum price you are looking at. Then depending on...

    Jandy Tri-Sensor 172 and 186 errors - Does IQ900-RS board replace front board?

    To answer your question, Yes, the IQ900-RS will replace your existing 'Front Board'. You may want to also look into the IQ20-RS which is the upgraded 2.0 version of the IQ900-RS, have heard some reports of improved connectivity and signal strength. I'm sure there are some TFP users that could...
