    Pool Rover Plus for IG Pool?

    Over ther years, I have had a Barracuda suction side cleaner, some other cheap suction side cleaner (think it was called a Ribbit, and looked like a frog :-D ). Later, in 2000, I bought an Aquabot, the basic one. Aquabot was great, dropped it in Friday night, and pool was spotless by Saturday...

    Installed an iwave remote system, with one problem

    End of last year, I noticed the display in my heater was not really readable anymore (for the 2nd time, but the first time was under warranty). I found places that sell the controller board and display, but it was over $300. So, instead of fixing it, I decided to get a remote control system...

    Liquidator vs Peristaltic Chlorine pump

    Ionizer and Liquidator

    Hi Guys I have been waffling over what to use for chlorinating my pool. Started looking into ionizer and ozonators, but had decided against them. I know ionizers are slow to kill germs, so you still need to use CL, in addtion to the ionizer. Ozonators don't leave any residue in the pool, so...

    Which model autopilot?

    I have been looking into alternative sanitizer for a little while. Was considering ionizers, ozonizers, but I think I will go with a SWG. I have an older pool, with copper pipes, we refinished a few years ago with fiberglass, about 23,000 gals, and we have a semi automatic safety cover on it...
