    When change the sand filter during the replaster process

    Hello I am in the process of replastering my pool and I am wondering when I should change my sand, before or after the pump start because the replaster creates a lot of dust. I heard both versions. The first I heard was to change the sand before the start of the pump, so I already remove half of...

    Automatic Solar Cover: under or above the deck

    Thank you proavia for your reply (just seing that now) Yeah the mulberry is mine, but it's great, specially for hot summer (here in vegas), so I am dealing with it, may be a little pruning will be usefull.

    Automatic Solar Cover: under or above the deck

    Thank you for your information, I contacted the 2 companies since then, in Australia, Elite pool cover and Sunbather, similar system than Cleardeck, but Cleardeck is in here so less delivery fees so it can be better, thank you, I will check. The estimate (I have a huge pool) was about 7000...

    Automatic Solar Cover: under or above the deck

    Hello, thank you for your answer. Yes, automatic solar cover, few companies are doing that: Home - Coverstar or Cover-Pools Automatic Safety Pool Covers for Any Pool Shape or Size. Anyway, you probably right, and it's very expensive (10k) so I hesitate with another system, something like that...

    Automatic Solar Cover: under or above the deck

    Hello, I would know if someone experiences an under deck solar cover? I am replastering my pool and removed the copping. So I hesitate, the price is the same for the solar cover, under or above. The under deck one is very classy and clean (on the paper). But it will create a "hole" and I am...

    Cancel a contract

    Thank you all for your help. It was useful. I will continue with the same company for the initial contract and hire another for the coping. These kinds of legal questions, as a foreigner, are tricky, thank you for your help!

    Cancel a contract

It is probably true... it won't by the same apple at the end... I presented the 'job to do' in the same way for both companies. The first company told...

    Newbie saying "hi"

    Hello everyone, I am new on the forum, I heard a lot of good things about it, the reason why I am here. I excuse myself already for my sometimes broken English... I am a foreigner...
