    Dolphin Nautilus CC - Power Supply Will Not Turn On

    I purchased my robot in June of 2019, so I should still be under warranty. I put in a support ticket and will let you know how it goes. Thanks for the help!

    Dolphin Nautilus CC - Power Supply Will Not Turn On

    I upgraded to a new Dolphin after 6 years of fairly flawless service from my first Dolphin. Six months in to my new Dolphin, I already have a dead power supply. I've done the basic checks and cannot get this thing to turn on. Any steps you've taken that may work before I call it in to...

    DFW Pool Remodel - Thoughts on my PB's?

    Here is an update on the list that I went through prior to completing my recent renovation: G&S Renovations - highest quote, pushed Fibre Tech, but still offered DiamondBrite, standard warranty, been in business for a long time and I can't find any negative reviews. Hart Pools - great...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    A few new updates. They finished the plaster over the weekend and we began filling her up. We filled up the spa first to get an idea of what the plaster and tile combo would look like. It is a little cloudy in this shot. About 12-hours later, we had a full pool. Here is the...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    I'm happy to say that we got what we wanted on the re-build. We only have 2 small changes/additions, but this is much more in line with what we were thinking. It is the perfect size for our pool and is not overpowering like the first "pile of rocks". This is a cell phone pic, so I'll get...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    They are coming back to the house tomorrow to re-build the water feature. The PB said he will be there the entire time to ensure we get what we are looking for. I don't have to have the exact same feature as Pragmatic's, but something similar would be nice. I think we can salvage some of the...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    Came home to find a pile of rocks. Immediately called the PB to discuss. It appears he came by this afternoon and knew it wasn't what we wanted. He called the rock guys and it appears there was some miscommunication on someone's part, because they thought that this is what we wanted. He is...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    As I stated above, we decided the off center look would work. Last week, we provided the following pic, which is of a TFP users pool (photo credit to Pragmatic). The builder really liked the idea and stated we would base our water feature off of the picture. I became a little concerned...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    I think we agree with you guys to go with the PB's recommendation and keep it off center. Instead of having boulder's around the entire half circle, we told them to try to even it out on both sides of the structure so it didn't look so uniform with the pools curves. We also will add some...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    PLEASE EXCUSE MY ELEMENTARY ART SKILLS. Now that we have that out of the way, we are in need of some help pretty quickly today. We are adding a water feature to the end of our pool and we are having an issue with placement. The end of our pool is a perfect half circle and we plan to have...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    Forgot to bring my SD card with me to upload new pic's, but they have the new bottom poured and have done the tile. We had to replace the pool light and have a new junction box wired in, as it seems the previous owner decided they didn't want a pool light and they ripped the old one out. The...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    Thank you. We are really looking forward to it. A better pic looking from the back wall prior to move in (thank goodness the prior owners agreed to put on a new roof!) We plan to fill in the areas on both sides of the pool, starting at the ends of the house to the current patio with Oklahoma...

    Colleyville, TX Remodel

    We purchased a house in August with the knowledge that the pool was in need of a remodel. The plaster was worn down to the gunite in a lot of areas and was very flaky. The previous owner had a pressure cleaner line plumbed, but capped off with no current automatic cleaning system. We used the...

    Fort Worth TX area plaster company - recomendations?

    I am over in Colleyville and have recently gone through the remodel bidding process. I had 6 companies come out and bid my job, which includes plaster, tile, coping, changing the depth of my pool and adding a water feature. I had a few ridiculous quotes, and 3 decent ones. I signed a contract...

    Recommendations on raising pool floor

    I understand gunite is concrete with subtle differences between the two. Since I currently have a gunite pool, is it mandatory that I use gunite or will standard concrete work? Maybe I'm over thinking this, just make sure it is done the right way. I don't want to have any issues in the future...

    Recommendations on raising pool floor

    We have a +/- 17,000 gallon pool that has a deep end depth of about 7 feet. I really want a pool that can be fully utilized, so as part of our remodel we are having the PB's bid to raise the floor and create a play pool. I've talked to four companies so far and the recommendations are split...

    DFW Pool Remodel - Thoughts on my PB's?

    I'm in the process of obtaining pool remodel quotes here in DFW and have talked to three companies so far, with one more coming tomorrow morning. So far, I've had Hart Pools, Authentic Plaster & Tile, and G&S Renovations quote me, with Lone Star Custom Pools coming tomorrow morning. G&S...

    Fibre Tech resurfacing

    Received my quote this morning and the cost of the Fibre Tech product is nearly identical to the cost of Diamond Brite plaster; $4,998 vs. $4,980. I still have not received a response from any real world users of this product, so I'm beginning to think I should steer clear of it. Our pool is...

    Fibre Tech resurfacing

    I've done some Google'ing and used the search function here on the forums, but I'm not finding a ton of info on real world experiences with this product. What I did find through Google was very negative, but the reviews were very aged (early to mid 2000's). Can the community chime in and...

    1st pool, have questions

    I'm not letting it kill the deal. We like to sit out on our current patio at night time and wind down, so I'd just like to have the option of sitting out there with the water sparkling. I think we'll call an electrician once we get in the house to see if they can figure anything out, but just...

    1st pool, have questions

    Hey all, I'm in the process of purchasing a new house that already has an in-ground pool in place. This will be my first pool, so I'm pretty excited about it. We do, of course, have one issue that I need your help on: The current owner was upfront about the pool light not working, so we...
