    Carvin/Jacuzzi Starlite LED Possible Replacement

    Update. Pulled second set of Carvin LED lights out. The problem is not something growing in them, it's actually burnt inside. Carvin Starlight has a known design problem with heat. I thought they had leaked and had algae in there. Replaced with PAL Treo. perfect.

    Micro hole in liner above water line

    thanks everybody ! glue ordered. One more question....... the liner is Black on the back. since this is so close to the bead........ would anybody consider popping the liner loose here and patching from the back?? you would never see it and hole would be sealed. Think it would be tempting...

    What are these holes in my pool for?

    Yep. looks like autofill to me too. also auto drain by the way. a float just like a toilet fluid master sits in mine. the float is set at the desired waterline. however.. mine only has one hole into the pool like your top one. it drains by gravity feed out into the yard, so no more pump out...

    Aqua Connect app showing lost link......... Ideas??

    Omnilogic looks pretty slick. but a bit $$$$$$. I had a PS-8 with tabletop remote and SWG at last house. worked well. BUT. it was expensive. also, a main board failed and two cells in 5 years. Decided i was going to try a different route this time. so i got the Ecommand4 and was going to use the...

    Annual SLAM (how do I always get here?)

    ^^^^ All good advice. I've been on these forums for quite a while. One tip I picked up years ago over at poolforum was from one of the early masters, Pooldoc. He believed (started) the whole BBB thing too. But he also used Poly 60 Algecide as a preemptive rx. I've used it for years. One bottle...
