    New Pool owner this yer. AG pool turned green. What to do until TF-100 kit arrives?

    All summer long, we kept a 24' AG pool crystal clear. We've been using Aqua Test strips (I know they're not accurate) and chlorine pucks ( I know they're frowned upon so I recently pulled them). I left for a 4 week business trip and left the wife in charge of the pool. She failed to backwash...

    New Pool Owner... Yes another cloudy pool.

    Last week, I completed the install of my first 24' round AG pool and sand filter (new sand). Prior to running the pump, I failed to backwash (rookie mistake) yet ran the pump for about 12 hours then had water tested. After $200 worth of chemicals and 5 days of staged treatments, I have my PH at...

For the pump, I purchased a 20A GFCI, single pole circuit braker that snaps into the neutral bus bar...

    Foundation coating on AG pool prior to install & for backfill?

    I have a used pool uprights and metal wall laid out in my shop (nearly 80' long!). I'm addressing a couple of rust spots then coating with a quality DTM paint. While I have everything laid out, is it worthwhile to coat the bottom inch or two (inside & outside) with foundation coating prior to...

    Used Above Ground installation

    First post after skimming the net for a forum. I took down a used 24', above ground pool 5-6 years ago. It was installed in 1997 and was in excellent condition. It's a sharkline/wilbar sendero 52". My intent is to finally re-install it at my home. Aside from a new liner & a couple of plastic...
