    New pool wall and liner

    The waves will come out as you fill, and even if its cloudy the vinyl will still heat up from the UV rays. You should be good. What is the temp during the day?

    Converting to salt, just order Circupool CORE35!

    it was a very straight forward and easy install! Took me less than an hour. I’d make sure you have the pvc parts to complete it! But it was so easy!

    Converting to salt, just order Circupool CORE35!

    Got the install knocked out in about 40 minutes. Had to convert from 1.5 to 2 to install the cell so I just got 2 PVC adapters for that one section. Let it sit for two hours and fired the pump back up! Water temps just below 60 so the cold water light was on so I turned it back off. But we are...

    Converting to salt, just order Circupool CORE35!

    Thanks! Thats why I went with it, I'm a little uneducated on plumbing my self so I went for something simple. I already ordered the test kits and my replacement TF-100 which should be here any day. The EDGE 35 will be delivered today. I picked up some Chlorine from HomeDepot over the weekend to...

    Converting to salt, just order Circupool CORE35!

    Honestly, I’ve never had a timer, it’s a two speed pump so I usually just left it on low 24/7 but know that’s overkill. I have a robotic vacuum so I know I can cut down my run time drastically. It is full sun all day. Will need to also test my CYA to see what it’s at, last season it was at 70...

    Converting to salt, just order Circupool CORE35!

    Have a 10K above ground pool, semi high bathing load due to two teens. Spend some time searching around for the best bang for my buck, I ordered the CORE35 with the free 1 dollar upgrade from the CORE15! I also ordered a timer for the pump and SWCG! Should arrive next week but going to get the...

    Looking at Pentair IC15 for above ground pool 10k gallons

    The unit I was looking at on amazon came with a power control for it. If I go Pentair it seems like the IC15 is the only one for above ground pools, if I go to the IC20 I would have to buy the power center separate and the cell separate which then puts the cost closer to 900 dollars over 499.

    Looking at Pentair IC15 for above ground pool 10k gallons

    Hey all! I am looking to a cheap easy to install SWCG for my above ground pool. I am looking for simple and straight forward and cost effective. Seems the Haywards have bad reviews and my previous house with inground pool had the Pentair IC for inground. My pool is 10K gallons this is rated...

    Possible owner build 14x29 Mountain Loch!

    Thank you for the response. I think we may go for a rectangle over the freeform style. It seems like for a DIY build, straight lines might be easier. And the same with the retaining wall. With the connection my friend has, he thinks there may be a way to save additional money so we'll see!

    Possible owner build 14x29 Mountain Loch!

    Good morning all! After relocating to Tennessee several years ago and having an above ground pool for a few years we have decided to explore the option of doing an owner build for a Vinyl inground pool. I have had 2 ingrounds installed in the past at previous homes but have always hired a pool...

    AGP ladder - how to keep child safe?

    We have a ladder that the steps actually flip up and lock giving them nothing to grab on to except two PVC poles. That may be one of the better options?

    New homeowner with Pool

    With the liner being 4 years old, unfortunately it does sound like a new liner will be a must. As liners age, they lose their flexibility and with out know how well the water was maintained prior to your purchase, it is most likely shot. Take a look around online for expandable liners. A liner...

    One Year Old Pump Locked Up!

    I actually live in Lenoir City TN now, so you are in my neck of the woods! Is the pool inground or above ground?
