    Raypak propane heater issue. M266A

    In the morning when I first fire up the heater, I get a boom. The unit comes on and heats normally and seems to run fine. When it reaches heat setting it shuts off normally. Then when it calls for heat again it ignites smoothly. To me it sounds like a tiny leak that occurs from several hours...

    Remodel - Not off to a good start.

    A few weeks ago we signed a contract for an old in-ground pool remodeling project for $12,000 worth of work. This morning they started the job. I get a call a few hours later. Apparently, while in the process of cutting the concrete deck (after removing the paver bricks) to replace a skimmer...

    Fibre Tech Pool Resurfacing

    What have been the experiences with rebuilding an old plaster in-ground pool and using FibreTech (fiberglass) instead of just re-plastering? We have a local Fibre Tech dealer in Largo, FL and I am thinking of getting a quote. Does anyone have any experience with this process? Any pitfalls or...
