    Sun Dome failed

    Yeah probably comes in big sheets though and I would need it contoured with seams. It’s a massive sheet of vinyl 18x33. It’s hard to pull up and take down. The sun dome is really heavy duty and thick and with all the pulling and stretching it still didn’t rip. It justed ripped this year. Dried...

    Sun Dome failed

    I have a heater too, but the water has to be like 90° for anybody to get in it. The dome pretty much holds that temp when it’s hot out. I only use heater in April and October. There’s too many leaves and acorns and it’s too hard to pull the cover off when we had a net. The dome was the best...

    Sun Dome failed

    I know, they told me they last 3 to 5 years, but no one will go in the pool if I have don’t have a dome. The southern exposure is what turned yellow and brittle. I’m stuck buying one every three years. I guess the money I save on just using chlorine helps.

    Sun Dome failed

    FYI My frabico Sun Dome failed after 3 seasons. The Vinyl turned yellow and brittle. It torn all over. They want $1000 to replace vinyl dome only . Doesn’t seem right ☹️

    New AGP plumbing with heater...shut off valves/unions?

    My theory is, you should never have a reason to slam and as long as you keep your pH normal the heater is just part of your system. If you follow the CYA chart the bleach shouldn’t harm it even when you slam. I’ve read a lot of post from the experts on this site, because I had the same question...

    Why did I put it under an oak tree?!?!?!

    A net cover won’t work I had one. It will be really heavy taking it off and lifting it out to dump acorns. We are talking 1000 of acorns. I had this problem too. I bought a dome for mine couldn’t be happier.

    Heater location relative to deck and/or pool?

    You don’t feel heat from the heater just the exhaust.

    Heater location relative to deck and/or pool?

    You can’t put a roof on the heater. It’s also made to be in the rain. Read the manual it will tell you the clearance it needs. I have a 250000 GH and yes the exhaust will bother you. You won’t be able to sit by it. The wind can blow it in your face.

    When I called them and told them the power supply was flashing he said it’s a bad power supply. So give them a call again and tell them what it’s doing. They will know.

    If it keeps flashes then it’s the power supply. You can buy one online for around $130.
