    Winter Cover sizing

    I have a 24' round AG pool and last winter we had a 24' winter cover on it. Even though I tied milkjugs to it, the wind would billow under it and over the winter it rubbed the finish off some of the aluminum top plates. The cover barely went over the edge of the top plates in most locations...

    Anyone purchase a Solar Heater from Ebay

    Poolman Solar heater Has anyone bought one of these units? If so, I'd be interested in your review. I'm looking at either adding a Fafco unit (4x20) or this unit. I'm thinking a one 4x20 unit is better than 2 2x20 units since there would be less connectors. Thanks

    HTH 6 Way tester vs Strips (FC vs TC)

    We just purchased a 24' round pool and I'm getting the water adjusted. We had a Intek pool before, and I always used test strips. I never had an issue with algea, but I probably put too much chlorine in it a few times. With the new pool, I've purchased the test strips and the HTH 6 way kit...
