    Rusting Walls After 1.5 years? Normal?

    I feel your pain first hand. I discovered the same issue, maybe worse, with my then 3 year old pool (now in it's 5th year) manufactured by Cardinal Pools. The link to that discussion is here Steel Wall Corrosion On 3 Year Old IG Pool Of course Cardinal mfg sent a rep to inspect and take photos...

    New Acid Pump/Ph Controller

    I have a basic vinyl lined IG pool, 24k gallons, nothing fancy, with a SWG. I keep my water in line with recommend TFP levels, with the pH set at 7.5 and usually go through two gallons of muriatic acid over a 4 month season. Before the CAT 1000 I was still using about the same. I do confirm the...

    New Acid Pump/Ph Controller

    I wish I knew about this a couple of years ago before I dropped $1500 on a CAT1000 pH controller.

    Small hole in aluminum coping

    would J-B Water Weld work to fill this mysterious bb sized hole in the coping or is there a better product? I would like it flush to the surface so it would be some what invisible.

    Small hole in aluminum coping

    Thanks Newdude! I don’t think is could have been hit with a bb as we are on a couple of acres and the angle it is on would have had to come from my house or patio and my son doesn't have a BB gun. I will fill it with expoxy and just dab a little paint on that spot. Anybody else have mysterious...

    Small hole in aluminum coping

    My son was swimming this evening and pointed out a small hole in the aluminum bullnose coping on our pool. It’s about the size of a bb. The pool is only 5 years old and I can’t imagine what would cause this. Can I put some epoxy in the hole and sand and paint?

    Pool Noodles In Skimmer?

    I have had a pool company close my pool for the winter since we had it built. They blow out the lines, pour anti-freeze down the skimmer and then close it off with a "Super Gizzmo". I noticed this season that there are some hair line cracks in both skimmers near the adjustable collar and on the...

    Who's Still Swimming in Maryland?

    Still swimming here in Hagerstown, MD. Heat pump is keeping the pool at 85 degrees but is running quite a bit over night with the cool temperatures $$$$. Last year we closed the end of October and will probably do the same this year.

    Who wants to help on automation options (Hayward...mostly)

    Make sure your vs pump is compatible with the Hayward Omnihub Pool and Spa Controller by contacting their tech support with the model number, unless you already know. I was interested in that controller but it turns out my 3 year old Hayward vsp is not compatible. I would only have on/off...

    Hayward Omnihub Pool and Spa Controller

    I'll get out there Saturday and snap a pic, but looking at the manual for the TriStar SP3200VSP it shows the wall mount digital control interface connected to the RS485, which I am using. According to the manual, the digital input terminals on the right are used for external relay speed control...

    Hayward Omnihub Pool and Spa Controller

    Thanks everyone for your help. I will give Polytec another call and ask about my pump. I spoke to them about purchasing the Omnihub controller and sister board for my AquaRite. I'll see what advice they have about the pump. I find it strange that this is touted as a retro fit yet it can't...

    Hayward Omnihub Pool and Spa Controller

    When I had my pool built in 2015 I never thought I would want or need any automation. It’s just a basic rectangular in ground vinyl liner pool with no spa or other features. I have all Hayward equipment to include to a variable speed pump model SP3200VSP and an AquaRite Pro SWG. Well over time I...

    Steel Wall Corrosion On 3 Year Old IG Pool

    I agree with you that 3 year old galvanized panels should not corrode to the extent they have. Like I posted earlier, I have read the posts about floating liners and no one mentions corrosion issues. I know what you are talking about with a tear in the liner because I had a small one in the...
