    “Tangle free cord” active 20

    No it goes on my caddy and back in the pool shed. Typically untangle the loops every 2-3 runs. Just thought it was funny i had to unhook my tangle free cord to get the knot undone

    Does a solar cover help algae grow?

    I have the same issue currently and get to go slam the pool. Fc never dropped below 4 with my salt system. Thought it was just pollen and got it cleared up and 2 days later its greener than i started.

    Automated Liquid Chlorination system

    A simpler option would be a venturi to pull from the bulk tank instead of pumping. Run it with a timer to control how long the valves are open to draw from the tank. Venturi goes in the same spot a swg would so it doesnt touch the pump or the filter and goes straight out the returns. 90% of...

    No more extension cords

    Best part about being a farmer. Jack of all trades master of none. Out in the country no permits or license required. Circuit was already in the panel so just had to hook into the existing outlet box. White to bright, black to brass, green(or bare) to ground. Pretty easy

    When is it safe to swim?

    Opened green and working through slam now. At what point is it safe to swim? When its clear while keeping slam levels or do i need to wait till everything is back to normal levels?

    Green at open

    Followed the tfp reccomendations at close. Added polyquat at close under 60. Cycled the poly then pumped down to close. Opened today at 60 to a light green pool. Can see 3ft bottom but not the 6ft. Had a mild winter and 35” of rain since close so had to pump off alot of water over the winter...

    Cost to run propane heater?

    Thank you. Not terrible on a limited basis but would get expensive in a hurry if keeping it hot. For sure would add a solar cover and gonna look into one regardless for this year.

    Cost to run propane heater?

    Would like to add a heater to my pool to extend my season. Help get it up to temp quicker in may and keep it decent through the end of sept. We have days in the 80s through early oct thats nice enough to swim but 75 deg water is a little cold to enjoy Not planning on running it to stay at 90...

    S200 in agp?

    Bout the time of year to start opening pools around here and the conversations that follow about upkeep that happen talking to people at church, walmart etc. love my s200 in my igp since it gets the walls. How do these work in an agp? Can they climb the walls safely or will it tear things up?
