    Pool Fence DIY

    The drill guide will still be useful, I'd definitely get one. You won't need a hammer drill unless you're drilling into concrete or something hard like that. You'll just need a drill and bit that can drill into your deck material. I'd call the company about whether or not the hollow deck...

    Pool Fence DIY

    I've had a Poolfence DIY fence up for a couple of years and it works well. Are you installing into concrete? The panel lengths are adjustable with a little (easy) cutting and reassembly. The poles work fine, no issues with the material being weak. We've removed sections for parties and...

    how low can you go (water temp)?

    Check out pool Bulge

    Winter here in New England and my pool has a thick sheet of ice up to just below the top step on my in ground pool. I went to check on things a couple of days ago and there is a hole on the top step. Looks like a squirrel or something chewed right through the vinyl liner! Of course it started...

    Installing a new cover on an already winterized pool

    Wow I am in the same exact situation! Winterized and lowered the level but haven't installed the new cover that took longer than expected to arrive. I'm planning on installing it as is with the water level low, but would love to hear opinions from the experts here.

    Are tarp & water bag covers safe?

    I have a cover that looks kind of like this: Do these hold up at all if say a child walks out on to them? I'm afraid it would swallow them up but I haven't read anything to tell me one way or another how much of a concern this is.
