    Earthworms?

    After a rain I get 100's of worms in my IG pool. They probably did climb up the side.

    Solar Covers-The Ins and Outs

    If you store a cover on a roller, be sure to cover it up. The sun will "cook" it while its rolled up. And don't be lazy like I did last winter and leave the cover on the roller, outside. I'm buying a new one this year. :)

    Inground Pool Backwash hose

    If you have room, plumb it with hard pipe. Mine is plumbed with ABS out the back yard, works great, drains where it needs to, and is never in the way.

    Hot tub in sunroom - drainage

    Ok, good to know, thanks Ike. I know from pool experience, I get a LOT of splash out at times. The floor in the room will be indoor/outdoor carpet, and it gets wet now from people coming in from the pool, etc. That makes me feel better.

    Hot tub in sunroom - drainage

    Our new hot tub will be delivered in a few weeks. We are installing it in the sunroom which overlooks the pool and yard. A new platform will be built to support the weight of the tub. Since the floor in the room is level, there won't be much for positive drainage to an "outside" location. My...

    Hey!!

    It was a planned event, we had approx 50-60 boats out at remote islands for a couple days. The organizer arranged the pizza lunch to be flown in as a treat. I believe they brought approx 20 pizzas. It was definitely neat!

    Hey!!

    Not as much commercially as I used to. Now that I'm married with an almost 2 year old, we spend most summer weekends on the boat. I still do a few events a year though.

    Glacier Pool Chillers are Awesome!

    It works for me, if the pool is too hot, I'll run the pump at night with the solar open, drops the temps pretty quick.

    Outdoor Showers/keeping house dry?

    I have a toilet and laundry tub in the pool house. Toilet is for #1 only (though there have been "Mistakes") its drained into a makeshift septic/drywell setup of a couple stacked well tiles filled with gravel. Has worked great since '88. The laundry tub sink is perfect for washing hands...

    Chemical levels after beating back the green swamp

    Get the pH up. Pool calc advises 125 oz of Borax. Keep the pool up at shock level which is where you are at, with a suggest level of 18 ppm. Also suggest getting a good kit and doing the testing yourself, either a TF-100 or Taylor K2006

    TA of 440?

    The fill water came from a water truck. The pH is perfect and solid for the last few days at 7.5. I do have a cover, but it hasn't been installed yet.

    TA of 440?

    I tested again last night, and still got in the high 400's. I'll run a sample down to the pool store, in case my reagents are bad.

    TA of 440?

    ha! I know I should know, I went from a bromine pool that didn't take much work to this. I'll try redoing the test tonight. Last year my TA was 90, so it may have been operator error.
