    Targeted Facebook adds on pool stuff

    Every once in a while I get targeted advertisements for pool stuff and some of it makes me laugh. Last time it was the PhIn pool sensor. Now it’s hexaborates that keep the water clear and ph balanced. All for 39.95 a gallon Of course I had to know what it was and...

    Pump on or off during heavy rain & balanced pool

    Happy 4th of July! So today we are getting dumped on with rain in Houston. Our area is expected to get between 2-6 inches. Our pool has an overflow so that got me thinking. To help possibly keep the pool balanced I shut the pump off. I figured the rain will mix a little with the pool water...

    Just added new Jandy Aqua Pure PLC 1400

    I decided to go full automation and added the Jandy Aqua Pure PLC 1400. Since I already had the Aqua Link Power center I found the control components for the SWG and added them to the center to turn it into a Pure Link Power center. Had I realized last year when the pool was built that I...

    Jandy Pro XI heater. Does anyone have the versaflo bypass?

    Our new pool has a Jandy xi heater and I was just reading I can add an automatic bypass to it so the water doesn't cycle through the heater. Does anyone have any experience with this. I've found it online for $165. Is it worth it? The literature says an increase of flow and an energy savings...

    So the pool is finished, the landscaping is being completed and we now have this giant wall to finish. I'm looking for ideas suggestions. It's 22' wide by 15' tall.

    Post your Pre/Post Harvey tests here

    So Harvey hit and our area received anywhere from 35-50 inches of rain. From some of the construction posts it filled pools that had been recently gunnited. I thought this would be a great place to escape and post some numbers from our pools. My last full panel was 20 Aug and FC pH on the 25th...

    New Pool Test Results

    First test in our new pool. I was on a trip and not here for start up. The pump was run for 48 hrs straight starting on Wednesday and is now on for 8 hours a day. I ran the app but want to make sure to add chemicals in the right order. So far the pool builder I believe has only added 1 gal...

    Firerock pavers ever heard of them? Travertine alternative

    So I'm starting to look for decking and will have about 1000sqft total. My current choices some type of spray decking or travertine. I could split them and just do the pool area in spray and the 400 sqft covered Patio in travertine. Then I stumbled upon Firerock pavers...
