    New Coping

    My contractor is asking me to talk to my pool store for solution options. We are still in full lockdown in my city, so can’t get out and about. Hoping there are some hacks or options. I was told over the phone that I should use a bucket, because it fits the hole and can be used as a diy...

    New Coping

    Hi, I am getting a new stone coping and was wondering how I manage the cap or cover of the skimmer since the stone will make it higher by a couple inches. I was told to add a collar but it looks like collars are installed in the middle of the skimmer, and I cannot pull mine apart. I also...

    New liner and just got my K2006c test kit

    Pool looks good. Slight cloud but it might be residual chemical granular stirring up. - - - Updated - - - ya I might be taking the cya wrong. When it was between two numbers I tried to guess the actual mamount. So if I am not supposed to do that the cya is between 30-40.

    New liner and just got my K2006c test kit

    I actually did add some water. I had vacuumed to waste and brought it too low on the skimmer and needed to add a couple inches of tap water. That might explain the change in Alk and CYA. I have read that the Tricloral tablets will eventually oversaturate the CYA but over what period? My pool...

    New liner and just got my K2006c test kit

    Hi, So I finally broke down and bought a taylor test kit after my old liner bleached out and ripped to bits over winter. I unfortunately used the pool store to check my numbers, and I think they used teh incorrect pool size when recommending chemicals (odd - even after they measured and...

    Replace skimmer when changing liner

    Hi, As winter comes to an end I have noticed that my pool cover is 4 feet lower than it was in the fall, so I have a leak. My liner is old faded and wrinkled so I am going to have it replaced. I have a standing quote of $2800 Canadian tax in for a Magna 30g liner and install, but still...

    Hayward super pump died

    My pool place is suggesting the energy efficient single speed Hayward 1/2 hp Tri-Star sp3205ee. Given the current electricity prices (18 cent pkwh - peak), the fact that my pool is smaller (operating less time), and the fact that the pool season is shorter here (4 months), I may not recoup the...

    Hayward super pump died

    Hi I am looking for a recommendation on a new pool pump. Mine died yesterday. Sigh. I am thinking of a variable speed pump for the energy savings but based on my current setup (old) and small pool size (15000g), I am not sure I would achieve any savings. I currently have a Hayward Super pump...

    Haywood automatic turbo skimmer question

    I was looking for the correct way to run it. Basically with turbo I only have one turbo jet and it's located right below the skimmer. When you open up the skimmer plate, and remove the skimmer basket you can see the jet pipe and below that the open intake to the filter. The jet pipe can...

    Haywood automatic turbo skimmer question

    Thanks. A little time on google and I usually find what I want too but this one is a stumper. All I can think is that people may be calling it something different so it is not showing up on a search. The only info I found in my shed were the winterizing instructions - which will come in...

    Haywood automatic turbo skimmer question

    Hi, I inherited an existing 30 plus year old pool and have a question about my rare skimmer setup. I have what I am told is a Haywood automatic turbo skimmer. They don't make them anymore, parts are rare and any info seems to even harder to come by. Can anybody tell me about this skimmer, or...
