    Show off your AGP Deck please!

    Thanks! We have a nice sized lot (1.5 acre) but most of it is either sloped or too rocky to do anything with it. Would have probably cost the same, if not more to get it level and usable, so we opted for a bigger sized deck to get some use out of the yard.

    Show off your AGP Deck please!

    Here's mine, finished a few weeks ago. Border around the pool runs level with the rail, and the contractor hugged the rail so tight you couldn't fit a leaf through there, which is what I wanted. Loop-loc pool cover apparently came out with an anchor system specifically for composite decking, I'm...

    Large Deck Extension wrapped around AGP. PICS!

    All done!! Thanks for checking it out. If you're in the NY Rockland County area, this monstrosity of a deck can be accredited to Sean at Fine Line Construction/Ren. Great guy with amazing woodworking skills.

    Adding salt without SWG?

    Thanks for the replies!

    Adding salt without SWG?

    Hey all, This may sound weird but I'm wondering if adding salt to my spa without the use of a SWG will help to improve the "feel" of the water. I did a full round of testing last night and needed to bump up my CH and TA a bit. I'm not really interested in using a SWG, at least not this year...

    Pool deck footing/bonding wire

    Any way you can do the footings first and the bonding wire after?

    Hey bud Chlorine consumption has all but stopped. Tested Friday night at 8.5, 24 hours later was 8.0. Either something was actually in there eating up chlorine, or chlorine wasn't stable at that level with the high temperature? I don't know for sure but everything seems fine now. Unfortunately...

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    The best I can do with the SimpleClear is to de-wire it in the control panel of the spa, as it is hard wired. I just cannot find info on that thing at all. I want to yank it out entirely and see exactly how it works. Right now all I see is a power cable and a single tube going somewhere into...

    Lost another 7.5 FC on the next 24 hours. Would anybody recommend the next thing to eliminate? I've tested for ammonia, test came back good, tested for phosphates, clear. I want to either lower the standby temp or shut down the UV, but not at the same time because I'm determined to pinpoint the...

    Dichlor/Bleach Method - why not add stabilizer to start instead of waiting for Dichlor to dissolve?

    I added HTH stabilizer granules and started with liquid chlorine, because it's what I had. I don't think there's a difference. Only thing is, the amount of granules needed is so tiny that you need a kitchen scale to weigh them correctly. You're not adding by the jug like you would with a pool.

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    Latest update for anyone following, I’m not getting consistent testing like I wish I could, but the gist of it is I lost 14ppm of FC over 24 hours. Started at 30 and ended at 16. I’m putting down the bleach for a while, I want to see what happens at lower FC levels. I’ve been far over shock...

    What steps to take?

    I had a trench like that around my pool when they leveled it. It sat over the winter collecting water, then freezing/thawing, which I suspect got under my pool and pitted the floor pretty badly. My solution, although I have since built a deck around the pool, was to backfill with a dirt/sand...

    My first and last pool Install

    My floor is extremely pitted as well, I'm guessing water got under there over the winter and had it's fun moving stuff around. At first I hated it but now it almost makes it easier to walk around, gives a bit of traction lol. Did you buy those steps new or it came with the whole pool setup...

    I definitely agree that without CYA, that UV system is no help to me. Things seem to be improving as CYA dissolves though.. Sunday evening 8:00PM: FC: 25 CC: 1.0 Monday 9:30AM: FC: 15 CC: not tested, wife did test, I'm still teaching her lol Bumped back to 25 8:30PM: FC: 21 CC: 0 Bumped back...

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    Yes. I'd guess it was around 12ppm going by pool math

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    Nope, no mention of ionizer. The only thing I put in that water was bleach, barely any CYA granules and a splash of De-foamer just to see what it would do (since i knew I was about to drain it). Could that be it? Anyway...since the purge I've re-filled and balanced the water. However, I'm...

    New Hot Tub help needed

    Any luck? I’m having the exact same problem as you. Tub is eating chlorine like crazy with almost no usage after a purge and fresh fill

    Large Deck Extension wrapped around AGP. PICS!

    The builder handles all the ordering so luckily I don't actually have to deal with doing much work or ordering. I just try to help him out when I can, but I won't do anything unless he's actually there. As far as the pool, we finally just broke free from a few weeks of rain/cold, but the...

    Ahh-Some Purge interesting color...

    Oh also...if anyone has any info on this "SimpleClear" thing, I would appreciate it. The pool store is supposed to come give me an orientation on the whole thing but they're backed up. I assume its either ozone or UV but i cant find much info on it and there's no sign of it actually...

    Good Morning! So 2 weeks ago we got our Bahama Palm Island II delivered. We had my son's first birthday party within the next few days so I rushed to get it up and running. Skipped the ahh-some purge till after the party. Did not get the water chemistry totally straight due to the lack of time...

    New Hot Tub help needed

    Will be following, I had a party in my brand new hot tub and the next few days i just could not get the water straightened out. Did an ahh-some purge and drained. Today I'm refilling and taking my time getting it right. I admit I rushed it the first fill just to get it running for a party we had.

    I know I've been slacking! I'm waiting till its all done, gotta finish up the stairs and gates, some trim work around the pool, and a few other details. Deck builder has a lot on his plate in personal life so I've cut him some slack. I plan on taking a massive round of pictures once its all...

    Not sure its worth to open early in the future

    This was my first year with a pool, I had to open in early April since we were having a deck built around it and needed accurate measurements. Definitely going to try opening June next year. Wayyy too much stuff clogging up the skimmer basket very quickly.

    Large Deck Extension wrapped around AGP. PICS!

    It was great! The bottom is pitted pretty bad. Water sat around the bottom of the pool from when they leveled the ground, and it must have gotten in there and shifted the sand. Couldn't do anything about it through the winter, but now the water should route around the pool since I backfilled one...
