    Hose Stuck!

    Welcome to TFP! :wave: So the hose is stuck at the poolside skimmer correct? Can you maybe post a picture of it so we can see? Any idea how far down the pipe the shoe went before it stopped and got stuck?

    I need your help!

    Lee, is there any other way of consolidating photos for your use other than posting them here? For example, I have a folder in my media library titled "References". You're welcome to grab any of those you like.

    Is my pool level enough

    Start with our and save those Vital Links in my signature. Remember these two basic concepts: - FC & CYA are balanced together per the to prevent algae - PH, TA, and CH (with water temp) are balanced to keep the water conditioned properly and prevent scale. The APP is a great tool to assist...

    Is my pool level enough

    Those are all on the concrete patio correct? Once you get the water out, or most of it, they should be able to slide or be tapped into position a bit if needed. Maybe with a rubber mallet? Or use a block of wood as a buffer on the side of each paver and tap with a hammer. That is as long as...

    Is my pool level enough

    That's what I was thinking. As for the legs, beams, and the remained of the structure, just keep an eye on it. If it starts to change, that will be a confirmation to get it more level.

    Is my pool level enough

    I see what you mean now about the leg. Maybe that's a leg on the side going with the slope? I don't think there's much you can do, but a sturdy wooden shim might not be a bad idea. As for a rupture, there's usually not a whole lot of warning. Unlike a small leak or tear, when a structures...

    Is my pool level enough

    If you are referring to the top horizontal bar, I think it will be okay. Interesting that it bows "IN" even though it's on the low end of the level. You would think it should bow out instead. I keep staring at the leg pic and I don't see the problem you describe about pressure more on one side...

    Is my pool level enough

    Welcome to TFP! :wave: Here we use the 1-inch rule as our margin for error. You're just above that by half an inch. Is that enough to be worried about? Your call really. Take into account wall movement when everyone is in there swimming and playing around, along with the low side should it...

    Leebo Moved my Cheese!

    It's tough on my eyes as well. I mentioned it to Lee early this morning. I think recent updates have him running around like crazy.

    Pool Math - notes on results feature request

    I'm sure @Leebo will evaluate this to see if this is something that can be entertained easily or if it's a significant programming update. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Algea pumps into pool for first 30 seconds then clear

    Welcome to TFP! :wave: But I have to say, the chems are not perfect if you have algae. Can you post a full set of water test results from your TF-100 or Taylor K-2006C? That would be our first place to begin. Also make sure to update your signature with all of your pool and equipment info...

    Forum Page Update(s)

    Thanks for the heads-up. I believe @Leebo already has these ID'd for updates. Unfortunately the server/DNS issues of the past week have had him overwhelmed. Still on the "To-Do" list though right Lee?

    Cloudy water

    You said the magic word - algae. It's time to follow the Wille. Give the SWG a break and go 100% liquid chlorine/regular bleach to maintain the proper FC SLAM level noted on the based on your current CYA. Don't forget to lower your pH to 7.2 first though. Good luck!

    Fish keeping in an intex pool?

    Hello and welcome to our forum! :wave: Well, not normally the question we asked here, but if you plan on buying a pool simply to use for fish, almost like a water garden, I don't see why you couldn't. Naturally you wouldn't be using traditional pool chemicals, so we can't speak much to the...

    Awesome Rebecca! That's a great pic of you two in France. Girls look like they've grown 2 feet since last time we saw them. And don't worry, some of our best decisions were made after a few beers. :cheers: :crazy: :crazy:

    Can I use 120 grit on my fibreglass pool?

    That it is correct, but because it didn't dissolve of fizzle with acid doesn't mean it's calcium silicate either. It could simply be a defect in the gelcoat or that something happening chemically allowing the gelcoat to get that oxidized, chalky look - if that is indeed what you are...

    Can I use 120 grit on my fibreglass pool?

    Welcome to TFP! :wave: So, being new to TFP and not knowing much (yet) about your specific gelcoat situation, I'll address a couple things: 1 - How did you come to the conclusion it is calcium silicate? It would be good to know more about your water testing history as well. To my...

    Air bubbles and gurgling

    We are going to need more help to pinpoint the origin of those sounds. Is the pump basket (under the clear lid) full of water? Keeping full prime all the time? Or are the sounds you are hearing coming from the heater area? Somewhere else? Please update your signature with all of your pool...
