    HeatpumpsAquaCal SQ225 vs Raypak R8450TI-E

    Looks like the Aqua Cal is more efficient than the Raypak but the Raypak is 3k vs 5k for the AquaCal. That 2k would pay for most of a solar heater which might be more efficient overall and have more heating power. Pool info: 20k gallons in ground Pentair intellicenter 3HP VS pump 600ish square...

    Gunite shot yesterday. Contractor says DON'T water it.

    I always thought that it was supposed to cure for a couple weeks and that you were supposed to water it at least twice a day. I watered it this morning and now My contractor says he has guys coming out tomorrow to start doing tile and coping work so don't water it tomorrow. Is that right?
