    Auto fill plumbing

    I put on an auto fill on my AG pool last year. I built it into the deck, and plumbed it out. But now I realize it doesn't actually work as I had hoped. The problem is that being plumbed into the return injector line, I needed obviously to put in a check valve so that the pump wouldn't just...

    Using old rooftop solar water panels to heat pool.

    have a 13,500 gallon AG pool I installed last year. All has gone really well, with the advice from a member here. I’d now like to raise the temperature of the pool a few degrees. Last year, in the middle of the summer, from July thru August, the pool stayed in the mid to high 70’s on average...

    Which pump do I choose of these two?

    I’m looking to install an AG pool this spring, ~15,000 gallons. I’ve dozed the site and am ordering a pool soon. I’m looking at a DC VS pump that is 500 watts (2/3hp), or one that is 900 watts, (about 1.20 hp.) (I’m off the grid by the way!) The 500 watt pump, supposedly pumps maximum 4400...

    Solar and SWCG Design Question

    I'm just in the process of designing my system and am curious. I going with an AG 15,000 gal pool, and I'm going solar direct for the pump. I'm also going to go solar direct for the swg. I assumed that I wouldn't want the swg running without the pump running, and that isn't as easy solar...

    Does anyone make a direct current Salt cell device?

    I am planning on building an AG pool this year. Looking at something like 15,000 gallons. This is in a remote area, where we don't have grid power. I do have AC, but I have to run thru inverters to make it. I'm going to power the pump with panels and pump directly, as that makes it easy NOT...

    looking for advice on what brand of AGP to buy.

    Hi, new member here. I'm looking to install an AGP this winter in No Cal. Remote location, won't have much kid use, probably mostly May to Sept, 2 to 3 times a week. I really don't want to have problems (no one does I know), as I have a lot of other things to do. I'm willing to buy a higher...

    Direct solar pumping

    I'm going to put in a AGP this winter, (~15,000 Gal) in Northern CA. I just joined the site trying to learn more about pools. I'm off the grid at my ranch, and while I COULD tie into my main AC inverter system, I'd rather not. I'm hope to just put in another mast near the pool site and power...

    Hi from No California.

    I'm a first time poster, new to above ground pools. I'm trying to decide what type of pool to put in on my ranch. Space is not an issue. I'm off the grid so will go with a DC brushless pump for sure. I'm pretty knowledgable about solar, so can figure that out. I have plenty of experience in...
