    How to use suction-based vacuum with dual outlets?

    couldn't you just block one of the "outlets"(suction port) or valve one of them off ,just for vacuuming purposes.Did they perchance provide you with a t'd adapter(2 into 1) for vacuuming? Think Large sink stopper,rubber kind.Off white color,sometimes comes with small chain attached.

    Any thoughts about this pool from Wayfair?

    There is nothing wrong with an overlap liner (as long as it's of good quality).It just requires a bit more finesse and adjustment when installing. I don't have any experience with this particular pool so I can't say how long it will last.I was just giving you some reasons why it was so cheaply...

    Any thoughts about this pool from Wayfair?

    One reason it's 12' in dia.(two adults w/their arms outstretched and touching could easily cover the entire dia. of this pool) It also uses a 1" top rail,very small uprights,an overlap liner and small ladder.All those things help reduce the cost of the overall cost of the pool.I have no...

    Deck jets on an ABG

    If you got a good deal on the assemblies or just used the nozzles I think you could do an install similar to mine for around $100.00 give or take.To me,my pool is a toy and toys don't have to make sense.:p

    Deck jets on an ABG

    Don't mind the mess. I used a 2.5" holesaw for the hole in the deck for the deck jet assembly.(very snug fit,didn't want deckjet assembly moving)a 2 9/16" holesaw would work well also.I use a dual stream nozzle. I used 1" pvc pipe and J hangers w/ a valve to turn jets on or off.(valve has...

    Deck jets on an ABG

    I'll be with in 40 min. of your general area sometime next week.Why stop at 1 I have 2 I think you should go for at least 4. They are easier to install than you think. Maybe I'll take pics,once you see how it's done it's a piece of cake.

    vermiculite bottom

    Can you drive it straight down a few feet from the pool? Dewatering with wellpoints(picture) works best with mutiple wellpoints distributed around the area you want to dewater.You hook all the wellpoints up to a single header pipe and 1 pump.Drive the points down a couple feet lower than the...

    Pool finance option

    Is the money enough to pay off your wife's med school loan? Then take the med school money and save twice as fast.The 401k penelaties and the money you would save on not paying interest may make this an option to think about.One less loan to worry about.Whatever you decide, it's your money.

    Leslie's Pools says they cannot help me so I came here.

    Welcome, your water is fixable. Now might be a good time to fix your uneven pool,before pool season kicks into high gear. Stick around here and you won't need a pool store.Do yourself a favor get a good FAS-DPD test kit.(they are worth every penny)
