    Sun Dome failed

    Yeah probably comes in big sheets though and I would need it contoured with seams. It’s a massive sheet of vinyl 18x33. It’s hard to pull up and take down. The sun dome is really heavy duty and thick and with all the pulling and stretching it still didn’t rip. It justed ripped this year. Dried...

    Sun Dome failed

    I have a heater too, but the water has to be like 90° for anybody to get in it. The dome pretty much holds that temp when it’s hot out. I only use heater in April and October. There’s too many leaves and acorns and it’s too hard to pull the cover off when we had a net. The dome was the best...

    Sun Dome failed

    I know, they told me they last 3 to 5 years, but no one will go in the pool if I have don’t have a dome. The southern exposure is what turned yellow and brittle. I’m stuck buying one every three years. I guess the money I save on just using chlorine helps.

    Sun Dome failed

    FYI My frabico Sun Dome failed after 3 seasons. The Vinyl turned yellow and brittle. It torn all over. They want $1000 to replace vinyl dome only . Doesn’t seem right ☹️

    New AGP plumbing with heater...shut off valves/unions?

    My theory is, you should never have a reason to slam and as long as you keep your pH normal the heater is just part of your system. If you follow the CYA chart the bleach shouldn’t harm it even when you slam. I’ve read a lot of post from the experts on this site, because I had the same question...

    Heater shouldn’t be bypassed you don’t want water sitting in it.
