    Latham Onyx or Natural Grey liner pictures?

    Good afternoon from Ohio! My wife and I are down to the wire now with liner color selection, and wondered if anyone has installed either the Latham Onyx or Natural Grey liner. We are so tempted to go that direction, as we think we would love the more natural look of the water, but can't really...

    Direct burial bonding connectors?

    Good morning! I'm building an 18x36 liner pool with steel sides. Started calling around to find DB rated connectors for the #8 CU bonding wire, and I'm shocked (ha!) that no one really knows anything about it at the electrical supply houses. I did some searching here, but don't see a whole...

    Salt Chlorine Generator / Fall Pool Installation

    Morning, folks! We have a 20k gallon vinyl pool going in in mid-September. We live in Ohio, so that means we will have just enough time to get it filled, balanced, and close it up.... Bummer, but at least we'll have it for a full season next year. My question is this. I have an...

    Deck Surface Drain for Auto Cover Pump?

    Morning, folks! I am building a pool with an auto cover. Since those require that a rain pump be on the cover when closed, I'm trying to avoid running an unsightly hose across the pool deck, as the house overlooks the pool area. Has anyone considered running a small (1" or 1 1/2") drain to...

    SCG + Auto Cover on Well Water

    Happy Tuesday! I am trying to work up my final equipment list for our new 18x36 liner pool to be installed in about 8 weeks, and i am thoroughly confused. I was told today by a maintenance company that we should not use a Salt Chlorinator on a pool with an auto cover if we are on well water...

    Heat Pump vs Gas Heater in Southern Ohio?

    Hi everyone. We're building a new 18x36 (20k gallons) sport pool, and I'm waffling back and forth between a heat pump and gas heater. We are on propane, and already have a 500-gal buried LP tank, so getting propane to the heater wouldn't be an issue. In either case, we will have an automatic...

    Newbie Heater questions

    Hello! We are building a new 18x36 sport pool (liner pool), and I have a couple of questions about heaters. Hoping I can get some wisdom before making a final decision. I'm going with Pentair IntelliCenter automation, and from what I've read, it's best to stick with the same brand of...

    Newbie Equipment Questions - 18x36 sport pool

    Hi guys! We are building a new 18x36 liner pool (3.5'-5'). I have attached a line drawing that is nearly accurate (we are doing an auto cover instead of fence and are not doing a sun shelf) We have three boys, and are super excited to finally see this dream come true. I am somewhat of an...
