    Never Ending SLAM (Can't get over the hump)

    Hello - I've been following the TFP methods for the past three years with great success but my pool is giving me a real hard time this year. The year started out great but then we had about a month solid of rain and temp swings (60s to 90s back and forth) and I got a little lax with the...

    DS or VS Super Pump Replacement Motor 115V

    I currently have a single speed 1 HP super pump running at 115V that I would like to convert to dual speed or variable speed for electricity cost savings. The wet end of the pump is in good shape, so I would only be looking for a replacement motor. Is there a replacement DS or VS motor that...

    Removing Paint from Vinyl Liner

    Hello, We recently spray painted our aging aluminum coping with rustoleum enamel paint and managed to get some on the vinyl liner (clearly we weren't careful enough).

    Squeaking a Few Years out of Rusted Coping

    Hello, First let me start off by saying I understand just how bad this looks. Know that we are planning on doing pretty much a complete rebuild in a few years once the vinyl liner goes. We would be doing a new liner, pool deck, coping, plumbing and equipment, but I need to get a few more...

    Equalizer Port Info

    Hello, I have what appears to be an equalizer port and I am just trying to figure out more about its purpose and if it should be open or closed during normal use (we have always kept it closed). We do not have a main drain if that makes a difference. From my googling, it appears it helps the...

    Removing Debris From Solar Cover

    Hi All, Our in-ground pool is under a very large pine tree which means tons of pine needles all the time. Bought a solar cover last year to warm the pool and also keep the needles out, but we ran into issues almost every time we took the cover off where most of the debris on the cover would...
