    Isn't this fun....

    I need help :) We rent a home with in ground pool and in ground spa. The spa has never been touched and since the issues with the landlord's pool guy arose, I don't think he ever properly maintained it. The valve that diverts to the spa broke and he didn't replace it. We waited for well...

    Opinions on ABG's and design

    Of course it is never simple..

    So tried to install the larger adapters. Had my son inside the pool with a bowl and I marked the outline. Began cutting the hole and my son sneezed pushing the bowl and inevitably where I was cutting. Made a nice slash. Ran around and found patches to cover it up and got those on :/ Now I am...

    Just had to say thank you (pics)

    I am so glad I stumbled on this site. I almost threw my pool away. I read every inch of this site and absorbed what I could and decided to try and salvage what I had. I won't go into details (you can read those) but it was bad- really bad. After piecing together the information from here and...

    2650 sand filter pump :/

    So in the process of getting my pool squared away. I bought this pump and took it out of the box today and hooked it up using the adapters to connect to my pool instead of cutting it. A couple of issues.. 1. There is a leak from a hose connector that runs from the prefilter side to the sand...

    Ok if you see my other thread (in signature) you will see what I started with. We dumped it, re-leveled the ground and got it back up. It has been filling since early morning. As the water is getting ready to go above the intake for the filter (finally I can start it soon), I wanted to get a...

    Very Very stupid question....

    but you had to look anyway :mrgreen: In my determination to get my pool right and fixed (you can see my thread in signature). I have determined I am missing a couple of the plastic footings on the legs (of course I am). While I finally located a replacement part from Intex for it - there...

    2650 Sand Filter

    I purchased this last week and it is still in the box while I get my pool cleaned and releveled out. The plug on the outside of my house is no longer working so I will be replacing that. The housing unit that covered the receptacle (with the weather proof lid) would not fit the plug that came...
