    Liner wrinkles during install...need expert verdict!

    I’d defiantly have a discussion with the installer about getting them to fix it, or at bare minimum offer some cash for the headaches. If it were I a trip to the local Dollar General would be in order to purchase a new plunger. These wrinkles do look like they can be worked out, it’s just a...

    Texas Dip Pool Build - DIY

    The power needed doesn’t come into play here, but how heat pumps work. Below around 50° to 60° they just shut off, regardless what you toss at them. Because there’s not really enough “heat” in the air to pull out the unit themselves shuts down. That said, depending on location heat pumps are a...

    Looking for a builder in NE Ohio

    In all honesty those two are the only ones I know of in the area. I'm sure there's others.....but I've only heard of those two. I'd be shocked however if they don't have more knowledge than I do on contractors in the area.

    Looking for a builder in NE Ohio

    First and Foremost, WELCOME TO TFP!!!! It’s been forever since we worked with them, but Summer Fun in Lisbon is one option I’d suspect does work in your area. Another option I’ve never worked with but maybe worth a phone call to is Hebners Pools and Spas in Carrollton Ohio.

    Is there a “best” time of year to resurface plaster

    Actually, just before winter is the worst time to resurface your plaster. After your pool is redone the pH will increase and If your pool is covered you won’t be able to keep up with the pH increase. Because of this there’s a huge chance your CSI will go out of balance and calcium scale will...

    PB used Stonescape when contract was for Pebblesheen

    Before anything I would open up an honest discussion with the builder. While all of us here at TFP can give advice, the builder can fix the problem. Nobody else can. You’ve got options and it’s likely gonna be some back and forth so figure out what you want and work towards that. A redo is an...

    Interior Finish issues and Pool Builder

    TFP is here to assist you in anyway we can. That said, this sort of issue isn’t one where we can assist in good faith. Like it or not to get this issue sorted correctly you’ll need assistance from the builder in some way. Only after doing all you can with the builder would I worry about legal...

    Foam under IG vinyl liner? Yay or nay?

    I cannot really speak for the dogs as we don’t have any. The foam is just fine though being held up by duct tape. Once filled there will be so much weight being pressed on it by the water it won’t have anywhere to go. Additionally the deep end is fine slightly damp as in time it will dry with...

    Tons of footprints in new pool

    I'd like to first off welcome you to TFP! Looking back at all the inground vinyl pools I cannot picture a single pool that didn't look like the moon when the lights were turned on. What you are describing is very common. It won't however harm anything besides the looks of the pool.

    Waxahachie, TX Owner Build - A race to beat the baby!

    I love the fact you didn't "find out" boy or girl until delivery! My wife and I did that with our first two, however for our most recent one we found out early. This was mostly due to a handful of health scares my wife made it where we almost had to find out early regardless if we wanted to or...

    Planning for a new vinyl liner...

    Without knowing the exact measurements of your pool I find it difficult to see how the installer came up with the $3,400 price quote. There are multiple different items that can quickly add up, so take his "quote" with a grain of salt. It's also something to suggest that the price may vary...

    Tankless Electric Pool Heater for In Ground Pool

    I'd too vote to look at solar, but if your still concerned I'd take another look at a heat pump. In our case just east of you we had too much shade to make solar an option (pools in the middle of heavy woods). We went a heat pump and was able to maintain a temp of about 86° all of August and...

    Tankless Electric Pool Heater for In Ground Pool

    Hello, and welcome to TFP!!! What are your main expectations of heating the pool? Do you wish to heat it up to 85ish most of the year, extend your season by keeping the temps in the 80's from Early May-late Sept, or both?? Do you currently use a solar cover???
