    Cannot connect to TFP using Tapatalk

    The biggest lost IMHO is TAT would allow me to see all threads I participated in or I am following using a streamlined approach. It's more cumbersome now but change takes getting use to, only time will tell if it impacts how often I'm reviewing threads. As you can see, I've been a member for 7...

    Pool Math

    I agree with the OP. Although the App is good, I don't really care for the GUI but everyone has their preference.

    What changed?

    Settings-Apps-Tapatalk--Advanced-Open by Default-Clear Defaults Unfortunately it clears all Defaults set, can't individually select which sites you want to remove, it's all or nothing. Thanks for the quick responses, they were helpful

    Pennywise and pound foolish

    What I read many times on this site is. ...go purchase 1 of 2 recommended test kits before we give advise and that's pretty much it. I spent a lot of time behind the scenes, following newbie threads that came on here for the first time needing help. As I started to read about the results...

    Shocking pool question

    Are you sure your pool is 80,000+ gallons? A standard in ground pool that is 24 ft x 44 ft with an average depth of 5 feet is approximately 40,000 gallons. You have a near commercial pool size that is managed with electronics and chlorine gas most often. EDIT: OP signature reads 30 x 60...

    What's growing on my hose?

    Looks like sand particles, do you have a sand filter, if so, put pantyhose or cheese cloth over an eyeball and see if it catches sand over the next few days.

    Replacing liner

    Just curious, what's the cost of having a liner replaced. This will be our 13th season with the liner that was installed the year we bought the house

    Has my Bullfrog CROAKED?? Photos attached

    Does the skirt of your spa cover fully cover the acrylic? This looks like warping due to heat. I'd make sure your skirt is long enough and isn't getting stuck underneath the tub lip when closed. If you have a infrared thermometer, I would shoot it at the side of the tub on a warm, sunny...

    Treating Pool In Winter To Prevent Miserable Opening Every Year

    This is my 14th year opening and closing our 30,000 gallon in ground pool with vinyl liner. I use a loop lock safety cover and have never opened to a green pool. I'm in Upstate NY and close right after Labor Day when day time temps are in the 50s and nights in the 30s. I shock the pool with...

    Improving convenience of adding Bleach after each use

    We use bleach exclusively except on initial fill until CYA gets where it needs to be. I had the same problem with "can't be bothered with testing and measuring chemicals, I just want to use it". This is all I heard from DW and my 23 yr old daughter for the first two months. After month...

    The One Thing I would not want to do without Thread

    I dont have one but I'm adding it this year. SWG..... We camp during the summer and having to ask a neighbor or relative to stop by and add chlorine to our pool is a big headache. We shock b4 we leave and throw a floater in but there is always the worry of coming home to a green pool in the...

    Sundance 880 Cameo 2013 LED lights acting up

    Problem surfaced again last night after 25 minutes of using the tub. Wife went to change the color using topside panel and lights went out. You could turn the lights back on but could not freeze a color. Checked all connections today, no corrosion, everything is tight. All light cables run...
