    Winter cover advice needed...

    I think the first time we went there probably WAS 15 years ago or so, when he first started playing. We haven't been back to it much in the last few years though. Last time it was looking pretty trampled and we couldn't walk through without getting a contact high from everyone elses'...

    Winter cover advice needed...

    mguzzy, OV=Orangevale? We were looking at houses over there before we bought this one. Hubby likes to disc golf and there is a great disc golf park there (Shady Oaks). Anyway, I WAS thinking about trying out the solar cover, or maybe using the solar cover to help float a leaf net over the top...

    Winter cover advice needed...

    My problem with that is that I don't have a uniform shape like round/rectangle/oval. It would have to be a custom made cover. I wish I could buy a ready made safety cover that would fit our pool.

    Haha, yeah, but this was a planned thing, we've known we would need a replaster since we moved in, we actually got almost 3 swimming seasons out of it before pulling the trigger.

    Winter cover advice needed...

    Hi Bryan, we are about to lay out $10k+ for our replaster (+cabo shelf and fixing a leak) and I just can't justify the expense of the safety cover right now. I've looked at some of the covers on In the Swim website and really wasn't all that impressed, the mesh covers don't look like much more...

    Winter cover advice needed...

    We have now had our pool for 2 years. In the summer we use a solar cover, which keeps it nice and toasty warm. We are currently in the process of having a small/minor reno done with a DiamondBrite replaster. This winter I would like to get a winter cover to keep out as much debris as possible...

    Eyeball returns for non-threaded 1" inside diameter returns

    I'll try to take a picture tomorrow, but they are really nothing more than holes in the wall. It looks to be 1" pvc pipe that terminates flush with the plaster. No eyeball fittings there at all. We've only been in the house less than a year, so I don't know if they've ever had fittings.

    Eyeball returns for non-threaded 1" inside diameter returns

    So I'm looking for eyeball return fittings for my 1" inside diameter returns. They are not threaded and are flush with the surface of the pool walls. I have three of them pointing in REALLY STUPID directions, I have really poor circulation because of this. I have been looking for some sort of...
