    Merlin vs GLI safety covers. Looking for reviews, pros or cons.

    We just moved into a new home this fall which included both the pool and spa covers in terrible shape. I really can't trust that they would safely make it through this winter. I think the cover we had at the home we just sold was a Merlin Industries cover. I have two quotes in hand - one from...

    S.Cental PA - evaporation or leak?

    I am located in South Central PA and have had our pool running for about a month now. Newly installed unground, so I am a complete newbie. It seems to me that I have had to top off the pool about once a week, sometimes more often. Is this normal? Or is it likely that we have a slow leak...

    Test Results (and lots of questions!) on newly filled pool

    My newly installed inground vinyl pool was filled about 1.5 weeks ago. When the crew had it filled, they did not add the salt or start the pump (for whatever reason). :roll: It sat like that for about 3 days until my PB learned that the crew failed to do this, and he came and added the salt...

    Grading - how level with concrete collar for grass seed?

    We are currently in construction for our inground vinyl pool, and for now have decided to hold off on installing a patio outside of the 3-ft concrete deck surrounding the pool. We don't have a lot of impervious area left according to the township, so we would like to see which areas of the yard...

    16 x 32 Vinyl Installation

    I've been reading TFP for a few weeks and just received my TF100 text kit, so I can be as prepared as possible for our first pool. I still have a few questions as to start up, but figured we'll learn as we go along. Being on a corner lot, we don't have a lot of room in the "back yard", which...

    Cabo Rustico pool liner?

    I am in the process of selecting the liner for my new pool build, and I am intrigued by the CABO RUSTICO TILE w/RUSTICO FLOOR pattern - but I don't know how it will look once installed. We are going with a lagoon shape, and I am leaning towards a more light green/aqua color for my water. I...

    For a vinyl pool - PVC coping? or Aluminum?

    We are hoping to put in an inground vinyl pool this year. Two of the pool builders that I have spoken with so far (one is Crystal Pools, the other is a small local company) use aluminum coping for the steel wall inground vinyl pools. Another company who I have not yet contacted (Fox Pools)...
