    Equipment shift

    I have two equipment pads, heater on one, filter and pump on the other. These are precast pads used when the pool was installed in 2005. Noticed this spring that the pad for the filter has sunk almost a 1/2". Given the heater and plumbing coming out of the ground hasn't presented a problem...

    Thinking of my DW

    My wife (best friend) of 30 years passed last month. I was with her 24 hours a day for 3 months, which I am thankful for. I don't post to often, but check in a couple of times a day. It is more like therapy for me. Reading all the posts from the regular crew seems like old friends. Three of...

    Spending more time on TFP

    With the cold weather and rain almost everyday I'm spending more time on TFP. That's fine, but the only time at the pool is to check things, between rain storms. :rant: Does anyone have some nice weather to send this way. :cheers: Rant :blah: over!

    Railing removal

    Last season I had a heck of a time removing my railings. Fought with them for quite awhile. When I installed them this season I coated the cups, railing bottom, hardware with wheel bearing grease. This year they slid out nice and clean.

    Northstar pump lid

    I get air in the pump on low speed, seems to be ok on high. I replaced the T ring gasket in the lid. The lid doesn't fit as tight as it did when it was new. I am thinking of getting a pressure test o-ring and trying that. There is quite abit of flexing in the pump lid when switching between...

    My DIG-220 doesn't keep the correct time. Nothing in the manual or site. Before I rip into it, has anyone experienced this. Maybe the internal battery. Thanks, Dave

    Pressure Gauge tested

    Dishwasher review

    We had to get a new dishwasher a couple of months ago. The DW’s only input is that she wanted the quietest one available. We use it at least once a day. Bosch Senses water and adjusts wash time on how dirty the water is. – It seems to do this pretty well. No drying element. – Water is...

    Swamp/Silver Maple seeds

    I've noticed that there are no seed pods/helicopters this year. My pool fills with them from a neighbors tree. I don't see any on the tree. False sense of security, I'll probably get nailed in a couple of weeks.

    Whole house water filter

    I have been looking at whole house filter systems. They all make great claims, but I'm skeptical. Anyone have experience or info on what system actually works well. I have city water. You might have seen Toms River in the news for cancer clusters and super fund sites. Thanks Dave

    Hayward Northstar part

    I get air in the pump on low speed. The pump cover is very easy to remove compared to last year. I just checked the pool store for a new pump cover gasket for it. They tried to tell me the lid is sold as one unit $81.00. No thankyou. Checked on line and the cover with attached T-gasket is...
