    Ontario Onground/Semi-Inground Pool & Operational Costs

    I am in Alberta and last year was our first summer with the pool. 27'. We keep the pool at about 87 and we had a cold wet summer. If memory serves our power bill went up by $15-$20 and natural gas was about another $80 per month. Regardless of what pool you put in grading is the most important...

    27 foot new above ground pool questions

    I agree with PV2. See if you can change out the SWG. I used foam cove and thought it was well worth the money as it is simple, saves time and won’t wash away. We considered a 30’ but opted for the 27 and it’s plenty. I can honestly say I’m glad we didn’t go 30 but I am glad we went 54” deep...

    First Iowa Winter with hot tub - what do I need to know?

    We used to do the cooler idea to keep towels and robes warm. Even put in wheat bags to help. This year I built a little wardrobe on the deck. We now hang our towels/robes in it, turn on the electric heater inside the box and Voila! Less hassle than the cooler.

    Costco comes through

    @YippeeSkippy After changing out a pump and redoing some plumbing, the hot tub is once again operational. We pumped water directly from the pool ( we are on a well) Hooked up the Saltron Mini and sure works nice!! My question though is the instructions say to take it out of the water when using...

    Rats eating spa wiring?

    In the RV industry we spray the undersides with peppermint oil as a deterrent for mice and it seems to work quite well. Perhaps remove a panel and spray the inside with it once a year.

    Costco comes through

    Agreed. I spent quite a bit of time reading reviews from different websites. The majority are good. The ones that crack me up are the ones that say their PH & TA are easier to maintain using this VS bleach. Their are members on this forum that use it and are very happy. Last January we went to...

    Costco comes through

    A couple months back we were considering purchasing a Saltron Mini for the hot tub but prices were ranging $450-$550 CDN so we held off. I had looked at Costco back then and it was discontinued. Well low and behold today I looked and they have them again. Only $229! smoking deal. Order has been...

    Spa pack popping GFCI

    @DangerBoy thanks for the feedback. I will disconnect the heater tonight and see what that does. The spa pack & heater is now approximately 5 yrs old. Any suggestions on replacement heaters?

    Pool-side projector setups

    Some years I have had my snowmobile out in October. This may be one of those years! We have on occasion moved the projector out by the campfire and dropped a tarp near the shed for a screen at 10 below and snow. Just have to dress for it.

    Wind blocker

    Funny you mentioned plexiglass. We would love to go that route so our view wont be blocked. I don't know about where you are but a 4X8 sheet of 1/4" is $300. Don't have to go that thick but still pricey!

    Now that Labour day is upon us....

    I will fire up the heater tomorrow planning for a final swim on holiday Monday. Calling for a sunny high of 17C (62F). After that once the water temps drop to below 60 we will winterize. Judging from the summer we had there is no reason to expect a decent fall. We also have not swam in the last...
