    Need to wire in SWG but want to remove in the winter

    I’m getting ready to finally install my Edge 40 SWG but have to figure out how to wire it so that I can remove it in the winter. My pool pad wiring is extremely basic, just one outlet with a switch over the top of it to turn the pump on or off in an outdoor plug enclosure, there is no timer...

    VS or two speed pump with 115v?

    I’m currently in the process of converting from Baquacil to chlorine so I can then install my Edge 40 SWG. My wiring is incredibly basic, a single 110 outlet with a switch to turn the current 1hp super pump on, there’s a single pole breaker in the main panel with no additional room to expand to...

    How to convert during shortage?

    We bought a house with a Baquacil pool this year & now that it’s finally clear, it had two inches of rotted leaves on the bottom when we opened it up. With a chlorine shortage how do I move forward with the conversion? The pool store has granular chlorine available but no liquid locally. I’m...

    Can I use my brand new robot to clean my filthy pool?

    We recently purchased this home with an inground pool & the previous owners didn't clean the pool before closing so there has been an inch of rotted leaves on the floor. I have been using a leaf rake to scoop the whole leaves & manually vacuuming but have a brand new Pentair Warrior SE sitting...

    New to us pool with a terrible surprise

    So we bought a house in November with an inground pool that couldn’t be inspected or opened due to the weather & we finally got the cover off today to see what we bought. As expected there’s a problem, hopefully not a major one but a problem. The pool was filled with leaves as the pool store...

    Have to plumb in a SWG & add a timer to a recently purchased pool

    We recently purchased this home with an inground pool & are getting ready to open it for the first time in a few weeks. I purchased an Edge 40 SWG that I intend on using once I convert it from Baquacil. Looking at the plumbing & wiring it is the most basic set up with some age on it so it’s...

    New pool owner converting from Baquacil to SW, water exchange prior to opening?

    We purchased a house this winter with a pool, we contacted the local company that closed the pool for the previous owners & found out it’s a Baquacil pool. They also mentioned that the pool was filled with leaves when they closed it & the previous owners didn’t care so the pool company point...

    We just purchased this home over the winter with a vinyl lined inground pool & as we are approaching spring in New Hampshire I’m starting to worry what’s under the cover. I spoke with the pool store that closed it up & they told me that the previous owner left the pool filled with leaves when...

    Intex price increase?

    After losing & then replacing the septic in our yard this summer I was hoping to replace our old Intex Ultra Frame 18' with a 22' or 24' but the prices are through the roof! I don't know what happened this year but typically there are numerous close outs this time of year but all I can find are...

    Intex deluxe wall mount skimmer depth?

    I installed a new Ultra Frame 18x48 pool this year & lowered the water level to 36" for my youngest. Since I plan on raising the level to the proper height as she grows I can't do an in wall skimmer but desperately need a skimmer with all the bugs in my yard. Seems like my only choice is the...

    New Pool Water & Need to Adjust

    I finally got my TF-100 test kit after I had the pool filled last week with treated water. Without knowing where my levels are to start I added some HTH Conditioner to get my CYA levels up & have been adding HTH pure chlorine liquid daily (obviously too much as the test results show below) I...

    New pool fill Ultra 18x42

    I've searched & having trouble understanding & finding the info I need. I'm having my pool filled today from a pool water supply house. I've lowered the return on my pool so I can keep the water level around 36" vs the 42". The pool normally holds 6500 gallons but with the lowered level will...

    18 X 48 Ultra frame leg support?

    Hi folks, thanks to this site & all the information I decided on installing an Ultra Frame 18' X 48" in the backyard. I removed about 3" of dirt on the high side & leveled with a ten foot 2X6 with a four foot level placed on top in a 20 foot radius. I then used HD landscape fabric & dropped sand...
