    Suggestions for New oblong/rectangular AGP?

    We are in 3rd year with a cheap Intex pool. Supports are rusting so it is coming down this fall. Cheap Walmart clear energy but served the purpose of whether it would get used and how much pain to take care of it. (TFP fixed the latter) 😀👍 We are wanting a longer term replacement. Daughter...

    This is just wrong!

    It can't be right when you fire up the wood burner and close the pool on the same day! :laughblue:

    Where to add skimmer?

    Currently have Intex with 2 outlets to pump, not skimmers. They are too close to the pump and inlet to pool, maybe 5' or so. Having trouble with dead spot directly across the pool. Upgraded pump last year to 2450gpm, runs 12hrs a day. Tried different directions with eye inlet, very little...

    "Dead zone" in 22' Intex AGP.

    I take our water sample from the far side of the pool from the pump. After getting some weird FC readings, I realized that I had sampled near our pump instead of my normal spot and the FC was higher there. The pump area is also somewhat shaded from a large tree, so maybe 1/3rd of the pool may...

    A couple questions, a couple blips cc and aereation

    Hey all, See logs below. I had a couple blips where the cc went to 1.5 and 2, is this normal? They were on the 29th and 27th. Also now that I have the TA close, should I block the aeration nozzle now that I do not need to actively raise the PH? Thanks! *Note: The times may...

    TA lowering issue

    Hey all, Working on lowering my TA the last several days. Hooked up the original pump we had replaced with sand filter and shooting it over the pool to speed along the PH rise. Sand filter pump is 3k gph and the original pump is 2.5k gph rated. Besides bad acid and bad testing operator, is...

    TF-100 Test kit

    Hey all, After chasing butterflies with our test strips, we are getting ready to order a test kit. Thinking the TF-100 but wondering if some of the options are worth getting at the same time. PH meter $14 ? Assuming not as accurate but worth it for a quick and dirty check? Speedstir Magnetic...
