    BBQ Mat that won't remove/damage Kool Deck

    Yea. Thinking I'm just going to have to be very careful on spillage, and hose down if I do happen to spill something.

    BBQ Mat that won't remove/damage Kool Deck

    I just had some concrete replaced, and new Kool Deck applied (2,200 sqft), and I need to find a mat for my grills and smokers to protect it from drippings, but one that won’t remove the Kool Deck it's sitting on. My last one did just that, drippings probably would have been better. Anyone have...

    Pool cover in box for 4 years, still good?

    When I built my pool I ordered a cover with my equipment. Cover has been sitting in box for 4 years this spring. I've never opened the box. I want the space back in my garage so I'm thinking about selling it. Any chance the cover has deteriorated sitting in the box for 4 years? I'd hate to sell...

    Spray Deck Blisters Every Year, Any Suggestions?

    Tested pool for leaks and nothing. A couple of the spots where I'm experiencing blistering are not near any plumbing or yard irrigation, or the house for that matter. Very strange.

    Spray Deck Blisters Every Year, Any Suggestions?

    Some areas are the same, three new areas this year. Places that they've repaired in the past seem fine . . . so far.

    Spray Deck Blisters Every Year, Any Suggestions?

    Spoke with the contractor and he wants to remove a piece of concrete and test efflorescence levels. Also mentioned it could be the soil. 7 of my 9 neighbors have spray deck and I'm the only one with this issue (lucky me) so I'm doubting it's the soil. Also, decking that was poured when house was...

    Spray Deck Blisters Every Year, Any Suggestions?

    @ajw22 - Spray deck contractor poured the concrete as well. What's strange is there is blistering in areas where the concrete was poured over the shotcrete (cantilever). I've circled a few of those areas in the picture below. If it was poor preparation, would it happen over the shotcrete too...

    Spray Deck Blisters Every Year, Any Suggestions?

    Every year my spray deck (Preferred Deck System) blisters. To my contractor's credit, he comes back and fixes it every year (built pool in 2015). First two years he spot fixed. This last year they sanded my entire decking (roughly 2,200 sq ft), treated it, I think they sealed it and reapplied...

    Pentair 520595 Union Replacement for Salt Cell

    Good as new, plumber knocked this out in 10 minutes. He said he sees "a lot" of these crack. Said the replacement part I bought is much better. I need to consider building something around my pool equipment as the Vegas sun beats down pretty hot this time of year. Thanks for the help!

    Pentair 520595 Union Replacement for Salt Cell

    I'll post a wider picture tomorrow. My solar heat kicked on today and sucker was spraying water everywhere, I think I'm past what JB Weld can help with, although I'll give it a shot. Called my plumber today and his voicemail is full, I have a feeling he might be pretty busy. Is this something...

    Pentair 520595 Union Replacement for Salt Cell

    The parts came with no instructions, in looking at it I'm thinking I need to have a plumber come out and cut the old coupling and connector out and install the new one? Coupling developed a crack. Thanks for any guidance here.

    IC40 Doesn't seem to be producing

    Diagnostic testing is 100% normal. Very frustrating, thinking I may need a new cell.

    IC40 Doesn't seem to be producing

    I'm back! Pentair sent me a flow switch/sensor no charge due to the fact that my unit was just out of warranty. Got it replaced last night, everything seems to be working correctly, however, I ran a test over night and from when I took my test at 9:00 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. my FC had only gone-up...
