    Thanks, (bad) pics, a cat, and lots of rain.

    I just wanted to thank everyone who actively answers questions on this site. We have saved SO MUCH MONEY by opening/closing our own pool as well as minor repairs to our old pump... repairs being removing debris from the impeller etc but still! saved us the hassle and embarrassment of hiring...

    Pump Dead - quick fix or buy a new one?

    Hi! So our jacuzzi pump stopped suddenly a few days ago - it was running fine and shut off as if it hit a switch. It was a warmish day and it had been running so I thought it might have overheated. Tried the next day and now it makes noise as if it's trying but doesn't move water. Impellers are...

    Zero Pressure in filter and Air in pump? (maybe)

    Kim, Our pool was in rough shape when we got it, so i think it was just overload. They went through both baskets during vacuum, but i guess were skinny enough to fit through. The hairnet idea is GENIUS and i am going to check out amazon.ca right now!!(i think they were even cheaper in CAD...

    Zero Pressure in filter and Air in pump? (maybe)

    I will go do this right now!! I don't know if the filter clean is necessary though, it's only a week old? It's done some hard work but it's brand new!

    Zero Pressure in filter and Air in pump? (maybe)

    Hello! Ok, I am going to attempt being thorough! We opened our pool about a week ago, and we just bought the place so this is really our first season with it. -We were working on clearing it up which consisted of vacuuming etc when over about 12 hours the pressure in the filter dropped from...

Just moved in september of last year and the pool was in rough shape so it was winterized and now we have the joy of un-greening it and updating old equipment! Ordered the taylor test kit recomended...
