    Anyone Know What Causes This?

    Anyone know why the exposed parts of this eyeball turned brown? Only the part that is exposed to the sun seems to be affected. Yet the brown will scrub off with a cleaner. All three eyeballs did the same thing. The eyeballs at my other two pools do not have the same issue. I installed them...

    I am such a slow learner....... Sigh!!

    About 2 years ago I left a hose in a rent house pool and then removed the other end of the hose at the house.. Came back the next day and by the magic of gravity, I had drained about two feet of water... ? You would think once would be enough!! But no, yesterday, I went over to the same...

    New Hayward DE Filter Seal

    A few weeks ago someone here posted a question about lubing the giant O-Ring between the bottom and top half of their DE filter. At the time I thought what idiot would not lube that seal.. But then I found out that this was a new type of O-Ring. While the original is a flexible rubber like...

    Blood Moon

    I took a couple of pics of the recent blood moon and one of them is somewhat interesting. Somehow I was able to transport myself into space and was able to photograph the moon and earth at the same time... . Jim R.

    New TFTestKit Pressure Gauge

    My old filter pressure gauge bit the dust... the scale had warped and any time the pressure went above 10 lbs. the needle would stick until you smacked it... I replaced it with a new one from TFtestkits for $15 bucks.. I honestly did not expect much, but the gauge I got is twice as heavy as...

    What causes pH rise in pools with SWGs?

    B, Really??? How do you figure that? I have three saltwater pools and none have any automated acid injections and my pH stays relatively stable at 7.8.. I guess I need to tell them that they are all doing something wrong... :p 10 minutes a week is about all you need to ensure you pH stays...

    Welcome for a New Family Member

    No, not the kind of new family member that would require some kind of immaculate conception in my case, but a new addition to my pool family. A used Caldera Kauai Spa, followed me home from Craig's List about a week ago, so we decided to keep it.... Seems to be in great shape and so far...

    Took a Lightning Strike!!!

    Well, actually my neighbor took the direct hit, I just got what was left over... My neighbor lost almost everything that was electrical. It took out his water heater, blew the faceplate off his sprinkler system controller, took out all his TV's and an electronic gate that was less that a week...

    My Answer to Hiding an Window AC Unit.

    A while back I posted this picture and asked for ideas on how I could hide the AC unit. The AC unit was not an issue before the pool was put in, but quite an eyesore after the pool was installed. Original pic..... I received a lot of ideas on removing the AC unit, install a different...

    Duck Rescue

    My renter called me and said there were ducks in the pool and they couldn't get out. I said if they flew in they will leave soon enough. He then said they are baby ducks. I'm thinking that is impossible, but go over anyway and this is what I found... Click on pic to enlarge... The baby...

    How Would You Hide This???

    All, Long Story short, I have a third car garage that I converted into a woodworking shop after my kids left home. The garage had a door at either end, so you could actually drive through and into the back yard. When I made it a workshop, I installed a window AC unit in the non-operational...
