    Walmart Pool Essentials - Stock Up?

    Thank you, Lowe's shows they have some in stock. It's only 10% for 3.86 when Wal-Mart had 12% for 3.64 but I'll take what I can get I guess. I can only find bleach up to 6% around here.

    Walmart Pool Essentials - Stock Up?

    I've tried ordering online with pick up from all my local stores, so far I've tried about 5. They've all cancelled my order stating they're out of stock.

    Walmart Pool Essentials - Stock Up?

    I've tried several Wal-Mart stores in my area and they are done with the liquid chlorine. I have one bottle left and approximately 5 weeks left of pool time. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on what else to use? I'm in East Tennessee. ***Note to self, next year, stock up...

    Pump stopped working

    I notice my water was still this morning and went out and saw that the outlet where my pump is plugged in had been tripped. I reset it and tried to start the pump. It will only hum. Nothing starts happening. Is my pump tore up, am I going to have to replace it? Any ideas will help.

    Losing flow after a couple hours

    I was having the same problem the first couple of days after I opened my above ground pool. The cover had gotten blown off during the storm the night before I opened it and all the extra crud on the cover went into the pool water. It had a white flaky stuff covering the water surface. It was...

    Kroger bleach

    Last year I found this forum and took control of my pool after fighting a green pool/algae the whole first half of the season. I maintained a beautiful, crystal clear water pool after that! I even got compliments on how "sparkling clear" the water was. I have a Kroger across the street from...

    Refill for TFP testing kit

    I bought the TFP kit last year. I'm opening my pool today and realizing that my chlorine powder is dried up and I'm running out of other supplies for it as well. Can I buy refills for it? I searched but I don't see a link where to buy it.

    AGP left uncovered for winter

    I guess that's the difference. I'm ready to close but my water is still showing in the high 70's. Too cold to swim, to warm to winterize without a cover. Oh well, I guess I'll just cover it again this year.

    AGP left uncovered for winter

    How does the water stay clear if you're pump is disassembled and you're not adding chemicals. I'd like to try a winter with no cover because it's so hard but I hated starting up my pool this spring with the green swamp and pool full of leaves. Last year I closed my pool with a pool store...

    Closing Question

    I have a 27' above ground. My cover is for a 27' so I can't help with that regard but if you're not able to buy a 27' cover I would go for the 30 and make sure the wire is ran through all the grommets and wound tight. Mine wasn't tight enough last year and blew off partial last year and...

    Tips and Tricks

    How do you get it around your handle and what keeps then attached to the basket? The elastic itself or do you use like a rubber band or something?

    EasyTouch won't allow solar night cooling

    Wish I had that trouble. A series of storms been passing through the past few days, water temp down to 80. Getting a bit on the cool side for me.

    30' Round Pool

    I was afraid a 24' wouldn't be big enough for my 3 teenage boys. I got the 27' and would loved to have got the 30 or 33 if I had room. With that being said, I don't think you'll regret it at all! I think you're going to love it. There's no such thing as too big a pool.
