    Hayward/Goldline Pro-Logic panel schematic? No power to display!

    My PL-P-4 panel died overnight. No power to the display and from what I was able to gather from this https://www.hayward-pool.ca/pdf/manuals/2014-ProLogic-4.45v2-TSG.pdf my 24V AC is fine, 120V AC supply to the panel is fine, fuses aren't blown however there is no DC voltage between pin 1 and...

    Max "overhang" for concrete pool deck (vinyl pool)

    I've had some issues with the concrete deck near my diving board. It was installed with a sonotube to offer extra support but it appears that because of it the concrete was lifting with the frost thus it cracked pretty badly. The poolbuilder offered to fix this and work is now in progress as...

    SR Smith "Salt friendly" diving board: worth the upgrade?

    I had posted last year about the rust issue on my Frontier II diving board rust-on-diving-board-base-how-to-remove-prevent-t25474.html and ended up having it sprayed with "rhino hybrid". It works well so far, no rust or anything but I have no idea when ti will start cracking and I may be back...

    Coping and concrete issues... not too sure what to do

    My pool was installed in the fall of 2009 and I live in Ottawa where it gets Dang cold in the winter so frost is an issue. As expected, I had a few cracks in my concrete that appeared last year and a bit of spalling here and there, one spot was near the shed so not a big deal (wasn't broom...

    Iffy temperature sensor on P4 panel?

    I removed the pool cover yesterday and fired up the pool after a long winter. No water issue and no leaky pipes! I'm however having an issue with my outdoor temperature probe used by my P4 panel. Yesterday, it read "+30F" so it turned on the pump automatically. I figured maybe it needs to...

    Solar cover: what to do with it?

    I've got a big solar cover and a rocky roller. I've rolled the clean cover on the roller and wrapped it with a tarp but what should I do for winter? I was thinking of removing the ends of the roller to protect them from winter (storing them in shed) and leaving the cover + tube on the deck all...

    So a pool cover does cause algae after all..

    The weather was chilly two weeks ago and last week the kids were sick so we did not get a chance to use the pool. I though that my trusty salt system would protect me from algae as it did all summer long but oh what surprise did I get Saturday afternoon when it was quite hot outside and the...

    Rust on diving board base: how to remove & prevent?

    Last year I asked the pool builder why he did not use the salt water diving board base from SR Smith instead of the regular one he uses since I'd be going with saltwater. His answer? "I've never seen one rust and my supplier can't get the salt water base". I pushed the issue and 3 weeks later...

    Got my TF100. Ready to kill pool store tester.

    Finally got my TF100.. I really should have gotten that before (long story) but hey, now is better than never. I can't believe how off the pool store tests were and I adjusted my chemicals according to their results while trying to aim for the pool school guidelines for SWG with a CH slightly...

    Vinyl liner: must it "touch" everywhere?

    I had a vinyl liner pool built last year and have been using it only for the last 2 weeks. Today, I noticed that the liner doesn't touch the concrete / metal everywhere. Where the wall meets the concrete floor, the stretched liner makes a curve in there instead of completely touching the wall...

    What to do until SWG kicks in?

    Weather was nice last week and my SWG had kicked in.. I had put in some shock to give it a head start (FC went up to 5.0) but we had a really chilly week-end and my pool temp dropped to 47F, now back up to a "warm" 50F.. :roll: The SWG won't be back online until water hits ~60F (it's a...

    CSI and cold water..

    I've noticed that on a pool with SWG, if we follow the guidelines from troublefreepool pool-school/water_balance_saltwater_generator the CSI will be quite low and to make it manageable, the PH has to be higher and do does the hardness. Temperature also makes a big difference, if you leave it at...

    Solar cover for odd shaped pool (Coverstick/ solar factory?)

    I did a search but didn't get many hits so I thought that I'd ask. My pool is a 20x35 like this: The only area where I could put a cover is on the long straight edge because the deep end has a diving board and the shallow end has a shed with the pool stuff.. the long straight edge is 12"...
