    Plumbing return jets and skimmer

    We are finalizing our contract with our PB for 16 x 32 vinyl inground pool. We are getting 2 skimmers and 3 return jets. Can anyone tell me of the return jets should be run off of separate lines or is it ok for all 3 to be off of the same line? Same question for the skimmers? I am assuming if...

We have a quote / contract from our builder (attached) and I was wondering if there is anything we are forgetting. Also, I am wondering...

    Help with pump and SWG selections

    Thank you! The pool kit comes with a Jandy single speed and can be upgraded to a VS. I am not sure if other brands are available. As far as automation- I don’t really know anything about it!🤷‍♀️ I know that I want to be able to control the pump and SWG so that I don’t have to run 24 hrs per...

    Help with pump and SWG selections

    Hello, all, At our old home we had an AG traditional chlorine pool and you guys were super helpful teaching me about operating it. So now I am coming to you looking for additional advice. My husband and I are about to purchase a 16’ x 32’ with 8’ deep end inground pool (21,000+gallons). This...

    New to pools and OVERWHELMED!

    I will definitely order the more advanced "good" kit. But am hoping we can get up and running soon. Very basic - dumb- question, but should you test while the pump is running? Will readings be out of whack if you take a sample after the pump hasn't run for a while (overnight)? Also - what is...

    New to pools and OVERWHELMED!

    I first bought the Taylor test kit that checked pH and Chlorine. Then the girl said I needed the test strips. Measures 6 chemicals - TA pH CYA Total choline and total hardness. I am going to try to return the chemicals. We will see if they take them back!
