    Texas winter storm aftermath

    Posted in another thread but with tarps/blankets I was at least 10 degrees warmer than outside temp. Sounds like you faired well though.

    Frozen Pool Pics 🥶

    After watching our neighbors 8 month build I’d agree, and they are still chasing down one final leak.....luckily our pool came with the house :)

    Frozen Pool Pics 🥶

    Thanks! Our first pool as adults and couldn’t be happier. Took us 7 years of being married but we got what we wanted.

    Frozen Pool Pics 🥶

    I don't have a picture of it completely frozen over but when the power was off for around 2.5 hours and it was 3 degrees outside we frozen completely over until everything fired back up.

    Aftermath of the Freeze

    Isn't that the truth. Thanks. Our pool guy was incredibly helpful with some late night calls to walk me through a few things. Youtube also.

    Aftermath of the Freeze

    I too dealt with the freeze in Texas and I'll share my experience for others in the future. We had subfreezing weather down to 3 degrees one day and rolling blackouts. We were below 25 degrees for 3 days straight. The first power outage I drained everything after 3 hours but we got power back...

    Pool overflow issue?

    Sorry if I wasn't clear, this isn't a new build just a new pool for us. It came with the house :) and was built back in 2016. I have a copy of the contract and I'm not seeing anything about an overflow tank. Honestly I could just add half an inch or an inch of pipe on the overflow pipe for an...

    Pool overflow issue?

    In the time since I originally posted I turned off the spillway pump and came out to look at the water level rise. It is already back into the overflow pipe.

    New pool owner questions (pumps, lights)

    Slightly embarrassed to say I’m not sure since I’m still trying to figure out everything we have. Whatever our pool service is putting into the chlorinator.

    New pool owner questions (pumps, lights)

    Thanks for the info. I looked through the freeze protection tab and no light is listed. I have an extra aux that I can’t figure out what it does but it doesn’t turn the light on, I’ve tried it.

    New pool owner questions (pumps, lights)

    Ok, just figured out the freeze protection is on starting at 38 degrees....running the filter pump, cleaner and spillway. So looks like we are set there. Does that cover the light as well?

    New pool owner questions (pumps, lights)

    Hi, I’m currently having the pool serviced by a local cleaning service that I also inherited from the previous owner. He does chemicals/testing weekly. He hasn’t mentioned anything out of the ordinary and has been with the pool a couple years now. Yes I have an app to control the pool...
