    Salt water system? Or Chlorine with a UV light Fikter

    Hey Jim, At first I was not using the TFP method. It wasn't until my SWG went out the 1st time and I developed algee, went on the net to find out how to cure it that I found this awesome site. I'm not saying that SWG's are not great, they are, but just wanted to let the OP know there are...

    Salt water system? Or Chlorine with a UV light Fikter

    It's a personal preference to me. I've had 2 new pools built and done them each way. 1st pool built with SWG, it was great as far as maintaining the pool. However after 3 years of service you start to realize the effects that salt has on equipment and any stone work you have. I had to replace...

    No flow from spa jets

    So Agent 99, I took your advice and opened up the valve, every thing looks clean, no problem there. Ran my snake as far as I could didn't hit anything. Put it all back together... Time to call in professional help. Pool tech showed up today, check my valve, didn't see anything wrong, said it...

    No flow from spa jets

    That's what it seems like to me also but what could have flowed through the filter and through the valves and be obstructing the spa jet line? Is there any way that it hydro locked or has an air bubble that it wouldn't get pushed through. I'm lost on what to try on this one. Is there a way to...

    Thanks Flippy We are really happy with the color. The blue with the tan tile seemed to go together in samples but you never know until you see the finished product. We are really happy we went that direction.

    Re: New Nor Cal pool build*updated slide pics* Thanks I am in the same boat, i would have started with a pile of gunite and ended up with a pile of gunite! It was pretty crazy to watch him hand carve everthing. I was impressed with just the gunite, once he smoothed everthing out and colored...

    Stick to your guns on it if you're not happy. I was fortunate my PB also agreed it didn't look right. I'm really happy it was refinished as it now looks like what I was expecting. Are your issues to do with aesthetics or to do with slickness/smoothness? Both... My forman and i were on the...

    We have also had some problems with the finish of our slide. Hopefully today will be the day it comes out right. I hope mine looks as good as yours in the end. I think if you keep posting pic's of the slide Ken will be adding one before long. Ha!

    Re: New Nor Cal pool build hand carving of the rock's. I can't say enough good things about the pool builder: Premier Pool's They truly have some great craftsman! The guy who hand crafted the waterfall and slide (all by himself) I might add was an artist.
