    Hurricane Matthew

    It would be good if your employer would allow part cash and part check for eminent emergencies like this. Banks could be closed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    How long to run the pump each day?

    Burn off might be the wrong word. Does agitating the water by running pump cause any incremental chlorine loss vs chlorine loss with pump off? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Does running the pump longer cause the chlorine to "burn off" quicker. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pouring bleach into the chlorinator

    Thanks for explanation. I always pour directly above a jet so it disperses and wondered what implications I could suffer from doing it differently. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pouring bleach into the chlorinator

    What about directly into a skimmer which would then be dispersed thru all jets?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SLAM theory question

    Yep total theory. Down here in Houston there are far more creepy crawlers in warmer water due to bacteria. Even eating oysters. Only in months with an R. Coincides with water temp. Cooler water less bad stuff. -------------- Don't ever hesitate to try something new. Remember amateurs...

    Building a Pool with outdoor kitchen and garage - Need advice

    So the pool designer is suggesting two doors in your master. Wow Unless you're turning it into a den/family room id extend the patio roof out. That way you have less chance of leakage cutting Into wall to put a wall. Also give you a nice uncovered seating on second floor. Even add a circle...

    Probably a roll up door to access pool toys etc. kind of over kill if so. -------------- Don't ever hesitate to try something new. Remember amateurs built the ARK and professionals built the TITANIC.
