    RIP Rusty Vogue Pool

    I'm writing this post to document the demise of my AGP in August 2017. I noticed the rust when the pool was 6 years old, and it failed 5 years later. My Vogue pool was installed in 2006. This photo is a couple of years later, but notice how straight the fence on the side is at this time. The...

    RIP above ground pool

    Not mine but a couple of miles down the road. You can’t really see it in the picture, but there was rust along the bottom edge and the point of failure looks like the return area. If you want your steel AGP to last you have to stay on top of the rust. We have been pounded by prolonged...

    Echo weed eater keeps stalling

    i've had this beast for three years now. It keeps stalling. I edge maybe 10 feet of curb and it stalls out. I've tried different throttle settings, I've checked the air filter, and I use Trufuel 50:1 gas oil mix. Any ideas what the problem could be?

    How to clear your pool, aka Taking one for the team!

    This is my personal backyard swamp! There is a huge oak just to the right of this pool that manages to drop every single leaf it possesses into the pool. I would like to say that I allowed my pool to go swampy as an altruistic sacrifice to demonstrate how easy it is to take your pool from...

    Can any of you fine folk who recommended I purchase an Echo srm 225 help me?

    I purchased this weed wacker last year, along with the rapid load head based on recommendations from the fine members of TFP. This year I am tiring to install the rapid load head and I am having a tough time figuring out which of the many "universal adapters" I need, since none of them seem to...

    This is why we say "Its not safe to swim if you can't see the bottom"

    Every year we help hundreds of people turn their pools from swamp to sparkling. Yes, it takes time. Maybe a few days, maybe a few weeks. Every pool is different. Every algae outbreak is different. We know its hot, you want to swim, the kids are nagging you to swim. Your chlorine is holding...

    Weed Wacker help!

    I hate weedeating with the fiery passion of a thousand suns! I especially hate that the line snaps off constantly! I seriously moved no more than 3" than the line snapped off again! I am constantly stopping, unplugging, pulling the spool out, re-threading it, and putting it all back together...

    Looking for brilliant ideas

    I have a ton of leaves and acorns in the bottom of my pool. It takes forever to scoop them out with a leaf rake and it is way more than my little Pool Rover Jr can handle. I want to use a leaf gulper (leaf eater, whatever...) but I want to modify it so I can use part of the return flow to...
