    Filter Storage & Swap Set

    Here are the main culprits - they have a ton of green yellow pollen... that seems to slip past the hairnets too (pollen).

    Filter Storage & Swap Set

    I did use them for a while, but they ended up being more trouble than it seemed worth it. Maybe I need to try again. The main issue is all the leaves and junk that falls into the pool - about 3-4 times a year and clog up the skimmer with the netting. I trimmed back the trees, but they still...

    Filter Storage & Swap Set

    Thanks Jim - definitely not a requirement - except when I'm just not feeling like cleaning right away. It seems I have to clean my a lot -pollen, leaves, buds this time a year keep the water hazy and I'd rather just plop in a fresh set and let the others soak until I can get to them. I just...

    Filter Storage & Swap Set

    Great to hear others are doing this. I was thinking of drying and storing in my hot attic in a sealed box with desiccant as well and rotate them as needed. I didn’t think about rodents - glad I asked and thanks!

    Filter Storage & Swap Set

    I'm looking at getting a second set of filters for my C-4025, so I can quickly swap them out and get the pool back running, then clean the dirty ones in TSP/detergent, dry and store. I've searched around for any recommendations on storing the filters, and only see a few posts of people trying...

    Texas Winters; Waterfall, Leaves, Draining.

    Yes - I do this now, but I think I need a longer pole. Plus it's **** on my back. Been looking at the surface skimming robots but they look like they'd get jammed quickly and I'd be out there cleaning it out every 10 minutes. I'll just have to get it done enough so the Dolphin can get back in...

    Texas Winters; Waterfall, Leaves, Draining.

    Beautiful Thank you for the reply! Been searching around on pool skimmers with little luck. These DIY look perfect. Now to find a better way to get the leaves out (Dolphin chokes, poolmaster is a PITA, and my trees are laughing at me non-stop).

    Texas Winters; Waterfall, Leaves, Draining.

    Moved from: Featured - Freezing Weather - Broken connection Thanks for the post - I hadn't thought of draining the water feature/fall - I'm right down the road from you ChristiK - in McKinney. I left it on all last winter, but maybe I need to drain it this winter. Been scooping leaves non-stop...

    Dolphin 30i Choking on leaves

    Good idea - maybe they can sell the bottom plate and I can swap that out as needed. Just today I have about a bag or two of leaves in the pool from the wind this AM. They are smallish too - just too much dense volume of them at once to make in the basket. Thank you!

    Dolphin 30i Choking on leaves

    My Dolphin is overwhelmed by the sudden mass of leaves (windy here) and keeps getting jammed right in the debris inlet - mainly packed in the cloth flaps. It does not look like the flap can be removed. It seems to be working fine, but just gets too many leaves at once in the opening and plugs...

    Spa Blower with it's own mind

    The heater is working perfectly. It’s the blower that seems to not want to run.

    Spa Blower with it's own mind

    When I first got my new house, we tried to figure out the spa, and decided it was only meant to give us warm water, not really like a jacuzzi. Fast forward to April when we had some hot days here in TX and I turned on the heater and spa. My little on screamed with joy at the bubbly water as I...

    Pool Math App Issue

    I'm getting this issue on iPhone all the time. Definitely not a connection issue, since other apps work fine connecting (Outlook/darksky/FB/Youtube).

    Doheny's Discovery, S200, Active20, Triton owners club

    Yet another newbie to join the family - Margaret @ Marina answered on the first few rings and cruised through the options quickly for me, and I already have the tracking ID for my Dolphin Active 30. She did a great job explaining the differences and saved me some cash since I was thinking the...

    Tree and debris battle... Help with Skimming

    That looks interesting. I'm looking at a robot - the fifty million variations... Since the Polaris I have does a marginal job if left to run all day and is a pain to clean out. You probably have some of the same Crud floating in the wind that I do neighbor!
