    Need advice for pool light

    Hey Bob congrats on your new pool build. Ask your pool builder if you purchased one on your own if he would install it and remove the cost of the light. This is what we did and saved some money. Just a thought :cheers:

    Solar panels

    Hi Mike welcome to TFP;). It is OK to bypass the panels in the summer provided you have a release vacuum valve which would allow the panels to drain. Hope this helps :)

    Solar bubble cover

    Hi Jean, we put on our bubble cover when the day temps start dipping down into the mid 70's. I use solar heat and then use heat pump to boost it to 90 degrees. The bubble cover must be kept on especially at night so that you do not loose the heat you gained during the day. I also just roll back...

    Bruzerjim I am going to take a long shot but can you post a full set of pool chem results? Perhaps your chemistry is off or maybe you have algae that you are fighting and maybe indeed your SWG is working but not enough to kill the algae. Hope this helps:cheers:

    Our pb steered us away from concrete because he said that it will crack, it would be just a matter of time so we went with pavers. Sorry I know that you probably did not want to hear that:(

    Small heat pump instead of solar cover???

    Agree on the sub panel. You can purchase all the materials from HD or Lowes and then look for an electrician to do the install. The most expensive item is the wire depending on size and length. For 100amp 3-3-3-5 copper, for 60amp 6-6-6-10 copper ( double check on this). Sub panels are cheap $30...

    Small heat pump instead of solar cover???

    Tim a heat pump is always a nice addition to any pool. You stated that you don't like using a solar cover however it would be one of the best investments to help keep heat in your pool.
