    DIY inground pool kit

    Where did you get your kit from? I am also planning a DIY inground (simple rectangle). Thinking about using Pool Warehouse and was wondering if you had experience with them.

    Inground Pool Construction Plans - Example?

    Hi all, We are looking to install an inground pool from a DIY kit later this year. I went to my town's website, and for the permit they require both a land plot showing the pool location (which I have), and what they call "construction plans". Does anyone that has built recently have an example...

    Pump "Throbbing"

    I've got a brand new Hayward XStream150 cartridge filter/pump for my 10k gallon AGP. This combo is fairly oversized for a pool this size, but its nice in that I only run it ten hours a day and get plenty of filtering. Plus, I got a good deal on it. The only issue is that it is LOUD. A simple...

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    I actually have both a GFI breaker and a GFIC receptacle. I suspected that tapping off the GFIC receptacle for the downstream run to my pump was probably adequate, but also installed a 20A GFI breaker on that circuit just to be on the safe side. And its all 12G wiring, from breaker to receptacle...

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    Ah, understood. I noticed my GFI outlet has provisions for both. Don't think I've ever actually seen a 20A plug. What are those used for? 110V clothes dryers (if there is such a thing)?

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    Ohm-Boy, Thanks again for your help. One question on this: the 20A GFI breaker I bought seemed to snap right in where the 15A breaker was. As mentioned in the update post, I ended up putting the 20A GFI breaker in a new location at the panel and putting the original 15A breaker back where it...

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    So after more investigation, it turns out the wire back to the panel on the circuit was NOT 12G all the way. I ended up adding a new, dedicated circuit, with its own 20A GFI breaker, and a new run of 12/2 Romex inside the house, connected to the existing GFI outlet on the side of my house, then...

    AGP Liner Install

    I seem to be having a bit of trouble getting my liner installed on a 15x26' 54" depth oval AGP. It is very tight in a few spots against the wall. Really, I mean its tight so much so that its tough to feel the wall as the liner is pulling away from it. All of my seams are pretty straight and...

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    Ohm_Boy, Thanks for mentioning that; I actually replaced the existing outlet with a GFI outlet (house was built in '87, assume before GFI required for all outdoor outlets?) in preparation for this and noted that it was 12/2 that was run there. 15A breaker though, which is strange. Haven't looked...

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    I should have mentioned, I also have an outdoor-rated timer (hardwired type, not a plug in type, see link) that will be installed inline, located next to the existing outlet. It offers a simple on/off switch, in addition to the on/off switch on my pump itself (Hayward Matrix for a XStream...

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    John, I thank you for the link, I downloaded the guide and read through it. Now, having read through it, I still think I am OK with what I propose. The limit for a convenience outlet is 20', which is how far my outlet is located. It is also less than 6.5' from grade, so I should be OK there...

    Filter/Pump Wiring Question

    I am in the process of installing a 15x26 Sharkline Matrix AGP. I wanted to make sure my plan for the electrical is OK. I currently have an outdoor outlet on the side of my house. It is a weathertight, in-use, GFIC outlet. The issue is that it is 20 feet from where I want to put the...
