    Umbrella holders not holding umbrellas snugly?

    We have umbrella holes in our deck as well. Our PB advised us to go get some PVC pipes to put in the holes and put our umbrellas in those. It helped keep our umbrellas more secure. Hubby didn't like the look so we spray painted the pipes the color of poles In ground, 15x27, 80 feet...

    Minor scaling above water line

    You will find it works well. Just be sure to use gloves and not lean too close to the tile to avoid splash back. Otherwise I let the acid do the work and avoided much scrubbing. I had one very large one; and just continued to spray let the acid eat it and spray again until it was basically...

    Minor scaling above water line

    I have a bit of that calcium build up as well on my new build pool. My PB suggested I mix 50/50 water and muriatic acid in a spray bottle and spay on the tile and then a little scrubbing. It actually worked perfect. Needed to add some acid to lower my PH so did while I was dosing the pool and...

    Just trying to take control before I lose it

    Thanks for the tip Jesse. My husband agreed to be the pool boy but he is slow coming around. I will get him there because I travel a lot for work so he is going to have to get on the TFP plan quickly! I feel like I am starting to have it all click in my brain. In ground, 15x27, 80 feet...

    Just trying to take control before I lose it

    I ran the FC and CC test out of my Taylor kit and got nothing that is why I believe my pool may have no chlorine. ?? I was too late fighting that battle with my PB. So it is part of my system. I guess I can work on figuring out how to turn off later? Do you think it will impact my results...

    So we just finished the build. Been reading pool school and it has been a week and a half since getting keys. In that short week I think I have already lost control. Need to be able to show my husband we can do this before he calls a dreaded pool guy. Here is what my results look like FC...

    Am I really building a pool??

    So the plaster guys showed up today very apologetic. With my pictures of the build from the gunite stage (see all those pics we all take come in handy!?) they were able to quickly confirm where they thought the pipe was. Their drill battery was dead and they were heading to HD to get a new...

    Am I really building a pool??

    Am I really building a pool??

    Hawk. Good question! I am still waiting to see how this is going to play out. They said they know exactly where the pipe is and should get to it without a lot of damage but I am going to be p$$$ed if it ends up looking like a patch job. The day has come to an end and no one showed and I am...
