    CLEANING SAFETY COVER BEFORE STORAGE

    I let it dry spread out in the yard, blow off and leaves etc with a blower, fold and put away. Scrubbing it to pristine new is not really necessary.

    Significant Builder Delays

    Friends gave a deposit of $10k to a builder last winter - still awaiting construction. Oh and they have to pull the permits themselves. I asked my wife if they have plans to pull that permit with and the answer was no. They will never get this built. This is what happens hen people do not...

    New Fiberglass Install - Southern NJ

    Just opened on Saturday - 60 minutes tops. But.... I understand the desire to see someone else do it - my builder included an opening way beck when we built the pool, so I just watched and learned.

    Go to his website (it he has one). Look at the photos of pools he completed, see how high the water is relative to the tile, then ask him if you ran your water that high would the skimmer skim properly?

    James and PoolGate are 100% right. Once you pay, he will forget you were ever a customer. A tear-out and replace can really only be done now before everything is buttoned up. He is interested in getting it done and over in the next few weeks, you have to look at it forever. I am sure this is...

    MD - VA - PA - DE - DC - When are you opening?

    Frederick County, MD here. Going to open the weekend of the April 10th, maybe the weekend after if my 2nd vaccine knocks me back a little. I am generally an April opener - gives me time to have the entire area ready for an early warm up (fingers crossed).

    Polywood Furniture

    The place we went to is also saying there are tremendous shortages on materials as well. Price increases as well - I should have bought the loungers we wanted in February for $269, they are now $319

    FiberGlass Pool Manufacturer

    I have a River Pool - I live close enough that they themselves did the installation. Having never owned a pool, fiberglass is all I know, but as others said, maintenance is pretty easy.
