    Do I really need to cover pool for winter? Advice please

    @SBall we are new pool owners this season and live just south of Nashville in Spring Hill. We don't have a cover and were planning to leave open as well. Pool is fiberglass. Any advice for us since we can get below freezing occasionally? Our winter weather here is so unpredictable.

    Dolphin T45 robot - poor cleaning or my expectations too high?

    I think you need to contact the place you bought it. I got my S200 yesterday. I did miss one spot but I only ran one cycle. I also have a fiberglass pool and get a lot of sediment and debris because we are surrounded by trees so I think it's going to be a daily thing for us but overall it did...

    Recommended pool robot/vacuums

    I just got the Dolphin S200 yesterday. Mine climbs the walls and scrubs the waterlines. It was so cool to watch in action. Marina Pools has the best pricing around that still allows you to still get the full two year warranty. Call and speak to Margaret. She will email you some options to...

    New Member, New Concrete Deck Concern

    Ours was poured just a few weeks ago (fiber mesh stuff too) and we already have a pretty good surface crack :( And I have this dark spots on the inside edge close to the water line that always look week even they they aren't. They have no explanation for it and said there is no way to fix it :(

    Storing your robot

    I’d yours under cover? We don’t have a covered area near the pool. So trying to figure that but out too. Also, how do youbstore the cord and power supply?

    Storing your robot

    I finally splurged and ordered my S200 from Marina today. Can’t wait for that gem to arrive. I did not order the caddy though. I’m curious to know how those without a caddy store their vacuums? I may end up ordering a caddy from amazon for $105 if I can’t figure something out but I figured you...

    Would you buy...

    Bummer. I spoke to her last night and she said they'd come by but this morning she says it's pending pick up by someone else. Oh well. Guess it wasn't meant to be.

    Would you buy...

    a used robot cleaner if they were willing to put it in your pool and verify it works? Our pool less than two months old and we definitely want a cleaner but I've been holding out trying to save up some cash for the purchase. Someone local to us posted a Dolphin Premier with caddy for $350. I...

    Marina Pool & Spas question

    Curious how much the S200 was? I called back in August but haven't bought yet. I'm wonder if they come down in the off season. It was $699 when I contacted them. Not that that is a bad price at all.

    fiberglass pool flaking?

    Did they ever come and fix your pool? Our build just got wrapped up and there is a black spot on the deep end wall between the two main drains that won't come off. The builders guy that does "pool school" came out today and he tried a stain remover and he agrees with me in thinking there is an...

    Hey TFP people. You guys have been my go to all through our build. We are almost a wrap on that finally :) . Deck is poured and fence goes up today so we can finally start getting our outdoor space in order just in time for some fall football. My husband would love to put a TV outside but we...

    Typical time to let concrete cure before putting out furniture?

    Thank you everyone. I think I'll wait until tomorrow at least to put stuff out and no sitting until next weekend :)

    Typical time to let concrete cure before putting out furniture?

    Our deck was finally poured yesterday, 39 days after our fiberglass pool was installed. We've been a little frustrated with the process but I'm happy to finally have it done. That said, all of the outdoor stuff I've been storing and collecting during this build process it accumulating in my...

    No update since Thursday? I’ve been following like my daily soap opera. Is the pool clear now?

    Fiberglass build in NoVa

    This is basically how ours was done too. We are still waiting on for our coping and concrete to be poured and they fortunately have not been paid for that. I'm glad it worked that way just in case they end of not following through. They are saying the end of next week so crossing my fingers...

    Fiberglass install happening now!

    I am so jealous. My fiberglass pool went in on August 1st and they still have not poured my concrete. I'm beyond frustrated with my builder right now :( But I'm at his mercy unless I want to pay significantly more for someone else to do it.

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    That means it was manufactured on the 215th day of this year. So around July? That's pretty fresh.

    I believe that would be the active 30. Have you looked on the Maytronics website? You can do side by side comparisons.

    Buying a used robotic cleaner?

    Someone in my local area has a Dolphin Premier with a caddy listed for $200. Is this something that I should avoid completely or worth checking into? If I should check into it what things should I ask/look for? Savings is significant over a new one so I figured it's worth getting some input...

    New fiberglass pool stain?

    Our pool just went in on the 1st and we have the same thing. The maintenance manual from Sun Pools says you can clean with Soft Scrub. Our concrete hasn’t been poured yet (frustrated about that) though so I’m waiting for that to be wrapped up before I attempt it. I think a lot of it is dust from...

    He’s a licensed plumber. What determines being a professional? Just curious.

    I can see the head of your vacuum at the bottom of the pool though! You are definitely making progress. Keep plugging along. You'll be seeing blue soon I think!

    Manually Vacuuming pool - first time

    We are still getting by with the manual vacuum since our concrete has not been poured yet and I haven't payed out the final bills for the pool or our fence. The net is a little thick around the edges to pick up the rocks so we have just be pushing them to the shallow end with the brush and...

    Install SWG now or later?

    Still no concrete but my husband has decided he would like to install the SWG this season rather than wait. Since we have a Hayward pump and filter I'm thinking the Hayward Salt is the way to go. Does TFP have recommendations on the best place to purchase a SWG for self install?

    Install SWG now or later?

    We are in the process of having our fiberglass pool installed. The pool has actually been in the ground since 8/01 and hooked up to the pump and filter since 8/02. I've been maintaining with liquid chlorine so far but we have been planning to install a SWG after everything is done. We have...
