    Replacing the mesh on a Dolphin robotic filter

    I could argue either sides of whether I was asking for trouble or not :) but now I'm just trying to get back up and running. Googling around looking for a reference for a mesh size of material.

    Replacing the mesh on a Dolphin robotic filter

    Hey all- my second set of "spring" filters for my Dolphin m500 (the ones with the fine mesh, not the cartridge filter media) has ripped on me. This time around, I'm thinking I'm going to glue on some replacement mesh material- no sense in throwing away a lot of cash on another set. Any one...

    Yup- it's the cloromax- didn't realize that. Will have to hit up Home Depot- thanks!

    Costco bleach prices (alternate source in Dallas?)

    Man. I remember just a few years ago (ok, maybe more than a few) it was in the $7s for the 3x 121oz of 8.25%. Then it was in the $8s. Then, maybe 2 years ago?, it was in the $9s and it fluctuated up and down in the $9s a bit. And it's $10.59 today (this is in Dallas). Holy cow. Anyone...

    Replacement float for BlueWhite flowmeter

    Thank you! I'm going to pass for now- I've managed to completely forget it wasn't in a usable state. Appreciate you hunting it down!

    Replacement float for BlueWhite flowmeter

    Thanks! Just going by what I found on the BW site, FLOAT CF-300 S.S. - Blue-White Industries . Part # is F-3001. Haven't spent a ton of time looking around for it but looks like most don't carry those parts. Appreciate it!

    Replacement float for BlueWhite flowmeter

    Have an F-300 flowmeter, and, long story short, was a little careless when I was trying to flush out some sediment that got in, and lost the float (the "old style" stainless float). BlueWhite wants $24.58 plus $10 to ship :( I can get a brand new one, new style (red plastic float), for $63...

    break in underground pool light wire

    Dirk- slept on it and came to the same conclusion. I can confidently do most things myself but dealing with electrified pool water, and being able to properly test it, is out of my wheelhouse. Thanks!

    break in underground pool light wire

    So I ended up calling American Home Shield to see if I could get it done thru them. They cover pool electrical, but not pool lights. Pool company came by (I actually knew the tech as he'd been by in the past to replace a motor). It definitely needed a new breaker. We walked around, found the...

    break in underground pool light wire

    Got back in the pool tonight; felt voltage after touching the ring when coming at it with the screwdriver. I can feel stray voltage around both while being 3-4 inches away. The switch that controls the lights is off (otherwise the breaker would trip). Turned the breaker off manually by hand...

    break in underground pool light wire

    Thanks! AJW got it exactly with the wiring configuration. And light switch is after the GFCI breaker. I've never messed with bulb install- should there be a reasonable amount of slack behind the fixture (2-3 feet so I can get it above water to remove the bulb)?

    break in underground pool light wire

    We've got two incandescent pool lights (in gunite); we had a gas leak earlier in the year and half the yard had to be dug up to replace pipe. I didn't realize until months later that a light line must have been hit- switching it on trips it's breaker immediately (we don't use the lights that...

    m500- partially running- impeller problem

    Just for the thread record, it's consistently "locking" after each run- before each run, I twist the impeller a bit in each direction. It runs great, for 1 run, then won't run again until I repeat. Is it worth opening it up and seeing if there's something sticking to the motor shaft or...
