    Solar cover reel attachment options

    My pool if 30ft in diameter. Couple years ago I tried the reel to remove my solar cover. But every season the cover will tear right where the strap clips are attached. Is there any other way to attach it without making holes in the cover?

    Question about Above Ground Robot

    Mine does the same thing. Sometimes it climbs the wall I don't know why. But I like it.

    Space between upright and wall

    That makes sense. Especially that my pool was taken down last season so I could replace the wall. Pool guy took it down and stack all the uprights like you said flat on the ground. I didn't have that problem last season before he took down the pool

    Space between upright and wall

    THe only thing I can thing about is that the upright was not aligned correctly on the top and bottom cap. I don't think wall should put much pressure on the upright since they are held in place with two small screws only. I don't think it's a problem. Once you bolt both ends of the steel wall it...

    Space between upright and wall

    Same as on our pool that was installed couple weeks ago. There is a one upright where I can stuck my finger between wall and the upright.

    DIY AGP Frame using metal roof panels

    I think it will be safer and less work if you just weld the panels together into a long roll or something line that. You will need to drill about 40 holes at each connection (that's how many holes my wall has where the wall ends meet) . I will put some kind of uprights on each seam. How about...

    CYA present even if I have not add it to fresh water

    I think photometer will always get me close enough. I don't need to be "perfect"

    CYA present even if I have not add it to fresh water

    I will try the tap water and probably one more time pool water with another pill. Anyone ever did a test where they compare TF-100 to ColorQ results

    CYA present even if I have not add it to fresh water

    That makes sense cause I do use one. I had no idea they put CYA in the pucks. And yes this is new fresh water.

    CYA present even if I have not add it to fresh water

    I bought the LaMotter ColorQ Pro 7. I have to add a pill to the glass tube and crush it to get CYA reading. So I assume the 12 might come from the pill? Or basically the unit is faulty?

    CYA present even if I have not add it to fresh water

    So I tested my water last night. CYA came up to be about 12. Is this is correct if I just filled my pool and have not yet add it? Or is it just a reading from the solution I added to the mix ?

    TA adjusted and what's now?

    Or how about this

    TA adjusted and what's now?

    I was also thinking maybe a compressor or some kind of pump to speed up the process.

    TA adjusted and what's now?

    I can replace the PVC to anything I want. So if I build one that looks like a kitchen faucet this will work better? I use 2" pvc. Should I just leave the exit at 2" or put a reduction there for smaller exit so faster water stream?

    TA adjusted and what's now?

    So water fountain is not a good aeration method to lower TA? I made something similar to this out of PVC

    TA adjusted and what's now?

    Still learning everything about the pool chemistry. So my TA comes to be at 310 . I'm in process of lowering it with acid and aerating. So my question is when I hit the mark on TA I will not be able to use water fountain anymore? Cause if I use it , it will lower TA more and raise PH. So then to...

    Pool liner bleaching on purpose

    Like in the other thread we had our pool rebuilt. New liner is kind of dark in color and now when the pool is full I don't like it. Before we took the pool down our liner was also dark and one time I think I overdose with shock and it turn kind of white. At that time the water color was more...

    How do I get rid of the wrinkles when filling the AGP?

    I saw a video of a guy using two toilet plungers to adjust the liner <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    New pool wall and liner

    I have attached two photos with my pool before it was taken down. Maybe I should not have called it stones. I think the proper way to call it is landscaping gravel. The gravel around the pool was mixed with soil and used as a backfill.

    New pool wall and liner

    About 70-80F . My pool is partially in the ground . Basically it's about 25" in on one side and 1-2" on the other. I have to backfill after I'm done with water. Installer said it's okay to use mixture of soil and stones if there is more soil then stones. I don't like this idea. I'm afraid one...

    Rusted wall. Pool 5 years old!

    Good news. They told me since pool was purchased in 2014 and it's 2019 they count it as 4th year. The only thing I have to cover is shipping and handling. Which is $430. I'm happy with the service. I thought I will have to cover the wall cost myself.

    Rusted wall. Pool 5 years old!

    I don't know why but I thought I suppose to receive email when someone replies. Anyway thank you guys for the replies. I took some pictures last night and filed a claim this morning. We will see what they say. I know it's not going to be easy to get it replaced. We might replace the liner next...

    Rusted wall. Pool 5 years old!

    I just noticed last night two rusted holes near the bottom of my pool. I can see the linear thru them. The worse part is that the pool was purchased brand new in January 2014. Pool comes with 5 years warranty. Can this be fixed? Also can I do it after the season?

    Can I use my DE filter/pump to vacuum pool with no DE in the filter

    Oh boy. I might just purchase separate pump just for vacuuming.
