    Pool supply world trouble

    I wish I had seen this post before I ordered from them. I'm in the same boat with an order for a Confer Plastics - CCX-AG Curve InPool Step System from Pool Supply World. I ordered it on 06/08/2020. I did manage to get an agent on LiveChat on 6/16/2020 that told me that the item was not on...

    Salt water system for above ground pool

    I just put up an AGP and decided to use a SWG. I read all of the same things about corrosion with saltwater. I also noticed that there were many AGPs that didn't have saltwater that still had corrosion problems. So if corrosion is going to happen, I don't think that it matters if you have...

    Not sure about this

    I wish that it only cost a couple hundred. I got a quote just to remove the grass for $1,400!!! That's not the whole yard, just where the pool was going. I ended up doing it myself.

    1st time filling the pool and I think I left the hose on too long.

    I filled my pool for the first time last night. Then the rains came, and they didn't stop. When I finished filling the pool, it was 3" from the top. The rain did the rest. One thing is that I can see how level the pool is now. One post is 7/8" high, and the one next to it is 3/4" high. The rest...

    How do I get rid of the wrinkles when filling the AGP?

    Thank you, everyone! It was very frustrating trying to get the wrinkles out of the bottom, but I did it! I think that in my case, I stopped filling once there was an inch on the bottom. Then I tried removing the wrinkles and it seemed like they just kept coming back or appearing in new places...

    How do I get rid of the wrinkles when filling the AGP?

    I am frustrated with trying to get rid of the wrinkles on the pool bottom. I've been on my hands and knees with an inch of water on the bottom and cannot get rid of them. I've used the pool brush. I'm going to try a plunger next. Is there an acceptable limit to wrinkles? Will some of them go...

    How much should I expect to pay for mason sand?

    I found a place near me that will deliver mason sand at $66.25 per ton. Does that sound about right?
