    Stamped concrete

    You can see some areas are wet. Likely after some rain. I usually will power wash it prior to sealing it and use some simple green. Use a peer blower to get everything off. This pic I was taking of dog lol so I can post a better pic later.

    Dolphin Nautilus Stopped working

    nothing happens. I tested my power supply with his robot and the test runs fine. I also tested my cord by using a multi meter and unscrewing it at the motor connection and got 27V. Is the only possible scenario that the motor is bad? Does nautilus sell just the robot?

    Dolphin Nautilus Stopped working

    I just used my neighbors power supply to test it with my cleaner and it didn’t work. Is it worth replacing the motor? Any reason why it seized? Don’t see anything lodged in it or any other issues.

    Dolphin Nautilus Stopped working

    Wondering if my motor somehow seized or if its something else I can't figure out. I tried testing it with multi meter and disconnected the cord from the motor and was receiving ~28V which is what I read is expected. Didn't smell like anything was shorted. anything else to check? its about 5...

    IG hottub stamped concrete

    Just had our hottub installed and had stamped concrete done as the deck to match the pool. The concrete coloring got into the hot tub water. Is there anything that I can use to get it out or do I have to drain it and clean it out? It’s not a great picture but all I have now

    Is there a way to test how much bromide reserve is in the water? I accidentally added 2x as much as what was called for. Is this dangerous and or how do I fix this? Is a drain and refill required?

    New spa fill bromide

    i did read that already but i guess i didn't understand step 4. I need to activate the bromine by shocking with chlorine? Since i added 2x as much as the manufacturer says, do i just wait until the levels are within desired amount or do i need to drain and start over. TIA
