    Reasonable price to add automation?

    I self installed a Jandy iaqualink 2.0 and all the related stuff during our remodel. $3k sounds like a great deal.

    Recommended additions to make pool more fun?

    I added a SR Smith Vortex enclosed slide. There is a constant line to ride.

    Filter pressure high when in spa mode

    I max my pump RPM in SPA mode which increases the pressure. Depending on the number of jet,s it would be normal to see the restriction cause a rise in pressure.

    Pool deck caulking question

    You don't caulk them. I did grout mine, but I've never seen anyone else do it.

    Keeping glass tile clean

    Even with near perfect chemistry, I have white build up on the tile surface. It takes muriatic acid and a pumice stone to remove. I do this twice a year.

    Keeping glass tile clean

    If I could do it over again, I'd skip the glass tile.

    Manual says that it does not climb on quick clean mode.

    My Pentair Warrior SE only runs for 20 minutes or so.

    My Warrior SI worked for one day. After that it would only run for 5 minutes at a time. Marina sent a return label and a new Warrior is on the way. I hope this one does not have the same problem.

    Will this design cause maintenance nightmares?

    Stairs in one corner only. No need for all four.

    Starting out on a renovation

    Pool deck is completely independent of anything about the pool. I can always be done later.

    Plumbing question - what size?

    2" would work, but I would insist on 2.5" for all three. There is a trend on this site recommending no main drain. I like being able to balance the waterflow. My water at 9' deep is cooler than the 92 degrees it is on the surface.

    6 way valve for sand filter inground pool

    Same problem here. Even with a new gasket on the diverter, it still leaks. I'm about to switch to a cartridge, but for now I put a pipe plug in the back wash line. I take it out when I need to backwash.

    Buried Pool renovation

    I guarantee those cracks are thru the shell. I fixed several with carbon fiber staples during my remodel.

    Spa spillway advice

    I would never have ledger stone in a pool.
