    Help me decide which AGP

    If you are going with or wanting to go with a Salt Water pool watch Doughboys warranty , I don't believe they'll cover saltwater usage in any of their pools , even their resin frame pools . The SaltWater 8000 I got from The Pool Factory is warranted for Salt Water (manufactured by Aqua Leader)...

    PoolMath wont run after update.

    I tried to do the sideload but guess I'm not tech savvy enough , so I guess I'll have to wait as I don't want to mess my phone up anymore than it already is .

    PoolMath wont run after update.

    I uninstalled the app and reinstalled , still will not work , I did clear the cache , I am hesitant to clear data as I will lose all saved data . I was signed in with my TFP user name but as the app will not open I can't verify if I am still signed in on app .

    Pool Fill

    Measure your flow rate at your bibs , see how long it takes to fill a 5 gallon pail , then you can figure how many gallons per minute , then figure gallons per hour . Divide your pools capacity by your gallons per hour calculation and that should give you a rough estimate .

    Using Speedstir with TF-100 cylinders

    #1 - yes , the TF100 cylinders fit the Speed Stir just fine . #2 - I bought a few spare stir bars , I use one exclusively for the chlorine test in case of staining , but that's just me .

    Bottom rail coming apart

    When I set up my ABG pool , once I had the bottom rails all laid out and perfect (diameter and circumference) I staked the rails on the outside , 2 stakes for each rail . They did not move when the wall was installed . I removed stakes when top rails and caps were on and water was going in ...

    New House, New Pool, What Test Kit

    TF 100 is a great kit , you would also need a salt test kit , the Taylor K1766 is accurate and easy to use . The Taylor speed stir is also something to think about , makes testing all the more easier . Congrats on the new house/pool .

    New Addition - Dolphin E10

    Picked up a 50 gal deck box to store Rowby when not using , got the tracks set on 1x1's to keep brush from flattening . It also doubles as a bench seat when lid is closed and there's still plenty of room for other gear .

    New Addition - Dolphin E10

    Just got a Dolphin E10 , its running its first cycle right now . With 3 grandsons permanently with me and the wife and a Douglas Fir and a Sassafras tree near the pool I found myself spending a good amount of time vacuuming the pool (even though its a small pool). This thing works pretty darn...
