    So this just happened....

    You just gave me a new perspective on that dang one little acorn. Your right, maybe he doesn't have enough to do. But alas, storms tonight. He's resting and hopefully will reach his full potential tomorrow. :snorkle:

    So this just happened....

    Sorry for late response but meant to add....if I have more than normal leaves on bottom I found taking the black oriface guard off and it picks up more. It really does a good job but it's been chasing 1 acorn around the bottom deep in for 3 weeks.

    Tarp cover

    Got my little pump from Walmart for about $50. Auto shut off. I have the end of the hose going in to my pool. To trap some dirt from going in pool I rubber banded a hair net to end of house going to pool. I also put my pump inside a plant basket and lined it with a hairnet too to keep dirt...

    How long until pump fails? No right answer to neighbor's noisy pump?

    I'd just say....."I noticed your pump is making a funny noise, would you like me to look at it?" I know I'd be grateful if someone other than myself checked out something on my pool.

    Saving sod?

    We had a patio built last year and had several areas in my yard that needed some grass. We were able to save most of it but it was a lot of work and without tamping it down it's rather bumpy and uneven. Giving it lots of water after laying is the key. It has to be laid within a few days of...

    If I could change TroubleFreePool, I would....

    How bout a terminology page. For instance, when I was new and talking to some great folks I had no idea what a puck was. It was just assumed I did I guess. I've seen a lot of people ask,,,um, what is a puck?

    Did you get a chance to try your robot without the fabric on bottom?

    S300 not picking up leaves

    When I had a lot of leaves my Dolphin S300i had problems picking them up. They were bunching up where the fabric is on bottom and just stirring leaves around. I took the fabric thing off and it picked up more. Worth a shot.
