    Try a plumbing supply house such as Ferguson Enterprises, INC. I would guess that they would have a shop within 30 miles of your location.....you can check here: web] http://direct.where2getit.com/cwc/apps/ ... ergusoninc [/web]

    Ideas anyone?

    There is a resin based bullnose that would work wonders on this problem. It is waterproof, flexible and does not split or cause splinters. It is paintable or stainable. I have used it in both commercial and residental applications, inside and outside, in both curved and flat applications. I...

    Help on pump and filter size and Solar heating

    Hmm, I must be misunderstanding the curve chart on the pump!! It is the max head that I have been worried about and why I was thinking the 1HP 2 Speed pump. When looking at the sand filters, I noticed that the Sand Dollar filter SD40would turn the pool over 3 times in just over 12 hours. But...

    Advice needed on Leveling with Sand

    Nature2

    Thanks for this info concerning the nature 2 system. I am about to purchase an Echo Canyon II, 16'X24'X54" AGP from artesian and the two of the "packages" comes a nature 2 system. As such I was wondering what it did and if it was worth it. I see that many feel it isn't! Again, thanks. TPG
