    Pool loungers discoloring

    So I bought some pool loungers (not ledge loungers but similar in design) from a friend that purchased them off of Amazon. They are white but now the part that is underwater has yellowed? Is it because of my pool water or just due to quality of chair? I’ve searched online and no one else seems...

    Mosquito control

    Yes that is what we paid and we have been very impressed!! Things that work usually aren’t so cheap!

    Mosquito control

    We use the Mosquito Eradicator by Spartan and it has been the cheapest and best solution we have found for mosquitos!!

    First time on my own

    Thank you so much! I have updated my signature, I have to get on an actual computer to do that so I had not done it yet :) Where would I find what my FC target needs to be? I intended to use default goals but looking back at it, it appears I messed up on some data entry. I will definitely pay...

    Does this look normal??

    Thanks so much, I am using the TF-100 with a speed stirrer. We will not actually take over care of the pool until after the first 30 days. I think they thought it would take longer to fill than it actually did because he said he would be out tomorrow, really wish it was today. I was just...

    Does this look normal??

    The pool builder hooked up a pump and was able to pull majority of the water from under the pool and the pool was plastered Sunday. It was finally full this morning at 3am. They are coming tomorrow to start the pool. Since two of the three kids are home sick I decided while they were napping to...

    Today should've been the big day!!

    I actually recall reading that one and then one that said they had waited months to plaster! I'm grateful our builder is careful to not rush, but I'm sure hoping we don't have to wait months for it to dry out. My husband keeps reminding me it is too cold to swim and he is right but I'm anxious...

    Today should've been the big day!!

    Our pool build has been going so smoothly until today! Plaster trucks showed up and weren't able to plaster because there is too much groundwater seeping in. They are currently hooking up a pump to try and remove the water so they can try again Monday. I am being patient but I am a little...

    Hello from East Texas

I have seen the link to become a supporter but have not been able to get the link to work. Any suggestions?? I can only imagine how valuable this...

    New build Monroe NC.

    Do you know the specifics on the brick that you used?? I absolutely love it and it doesn't look like any of the options my pool builder had. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Self build - Middle, TN 18x36

    Love it!! We are just beginning to get quotes but this is the exact shape I want and was really curious how deep your was. I was excited to see 8' because one builder suggested only 6.5 for deep end with jumping rock but after seeing yours I KNOW 8 can reasonably be done. Sent from my iPhone...
