    Blotchy Liner Fade

    Thanks, that’s my best guess as there is a return at the top of the slope on the right side and that return is the shortest distance to the pump. It’s directed to the shallow end, but after I posted this and stared at the pic, I started thinking it looks like that return may be the point of...

    Blotchy Liner Fade

    Looking for help on anything I might be doing wrong to cause liner fading. This liner has seen 4 seasons and I noticed the fading last season. Just opened and attached is a good pic to reference. There’s pretty consistent fading where the floors meet the walls, but my biggest concern is the...

    Gluing check valve directly to heater socket

    For the heater bypass. I was just dry fitting some things in the pic to see if I could even put in a bypass (heater is 16 years old), so the 1.5” inlet pipe has already been cut out and is just sitting there for alignment. I’m replacing with 2” and will have a 3 way valve before the heater and...

    Gluing check valve directly to heater socket

    I’m in the process of replumbling my pad for a vsp upgrade and while I have a tight fit I think I can squeeze in a manual heater bypass. Does anyone see any issue with gluing a check valve directly to the heater union socket?

    Jandy Never Lube valve alternatives

    Don’t want to hi-jack this post, but might a little. Hoping OP could benefit as well. When I moved in to my house with a pool, the 3 suction lines had a push/pull kind of valve. They appeared to be original so were about 10 years old. The stem in at least one was leaking (bubbles in the basket)...

    Clorox is on to me

    Opening the pool today and to my surprise, all 3 of my podunk town stores are not selling 8.25% bleach. It's not like they were sold out, they just aren't carrying it now. So instead of being the weirdo buying 6 gallons of bleach, I was the weirdo buying 9. Kid at the counter: "that's a lot...

    Pad Replumb Suggestions Anyone?

    So it sounds like upgrading to 2" pipe from the collection/distribution points will not yield me much? I'm replacing the pump because when I tore it down to replace the seals over the winter, the seal plate was all chewed up and melted. I put the new seals in although the one didn't seat...

    Pad Replumb Suggestions Anyone?

    Thanks Jim, I'll put those unions on the list when I do the pump. I was thinking that going to 2" pipe as the 1.5's come together could increase my flow rate. If you don't think it makes sense, then I can stop obsessing about it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pad Replumb Suggestions Anyone?

    I'm looking to replace my single speed pump with a VS pump with a 2" port and want to upgrade my pipe to 2" at the pad. I have 1 main drain and 2 skimmers, and 4 returns. My issue is that the lines coming up from the ground are too close together to simply replace the tee's with 2" fittings...

    Lurker Turned Poster

    After lurking for the past 3 years and enjoying for the most part a TFP thanks to this site, I'm coming out of the shadows. I grew up with IG pools and about 3 years ago moved to a house with an existing pool rather than building one (and avoided a kitchen remodel for my wife). I found this...
