    Southern Gospel

    My cousin just released his first album. He is a lifelong musician and plays George Harrison in a couple of Beatlemania groups. Actually had one of his songs flagged by YouTube for copyright violations (he was singing it so there was none but he is that good). Enjoy! George Williams - "George"...

    Extended closing

    I just had to extend my closing from the end of October until the end of November as the water is way too warm. Still over 70! Anyone else extending?

    Jandy JXI400 Problems

    I got a strange problem. I turned the heater on yesterday morning and it was, I thought, heating all day. We got in the pool and it was cooler that it should have been so I checked and Aqualink was reporting that the heater was running and "heating". I could hear the blower on the heater running...

    CYA - Shelf Life

    I have two questions on CYA. 1: How long is it good just sitting in the box it came in? Box is stored indoors in a dark place. 2: Does CYA degrade in the water other than what you test with it? In other words, can "old" CYA test at say "60", but behave like it is only "40" due to it just...

    Oops.......

    I was in the pool yesterday and we often set the temp high so the returns and waterfalls have hot water coming out. Well, oops, I forgot to turn off the heater last night and woke up to a 93 degree pool. I don't mind the high temp (actually I love it) but this will hurt on the gas bill for sure...

    SWG Degradation Over Time

    My 1400 series Nature2 FusionSoft used to be able to maintain my pool easily at 53%. For the first 4 seasons that is where it was set. And even at that, my FC would climb to 15 and I'd shut it off for a few days to let it drift back down. Life was good. Least season, right before the warranty...

    Kriss - I need you....

    Anyone have any experience with the Kriss Vector? This is a strong contender for my next firearm and looking for 1st hand reviews. Honestly it looks cool and will make a nice addition but I am really interested in how well it does. 2nd choice at the moment is the H&K USC.

    Saltwater Fish and Algae Control

    I have kept freshwater and saltwater fish for most of my life. I have never been too successful with the saltwater fish. I am trying to get back into the hobby and resurrecting my 120 gallon tank. It has been running for the past 10 years or so but I have done nothing but feed it for the past 5...

    Bonus Land

    A friend of mine just signed a contract for a house. She found out when she signed the contract that the property comes with an additional 1.7 acre deeded lot for no extra charge. The lot is fully wooded and backs to a stream. The listing agent forgot to include it in the original listing. Wow...

    Rough band of plaster

    This is our fifth season with the pool. I noticed a very rough section of plaster about a foot thick wrapping around the pool. Seems to be right where the freeze line was located. I am able to somewhat sand this down using a scotch Brite pad but really curious what this is. It's also on top of...

    Ozone

    ROFL! I follow a Facebook Ozone/UV pool group and a member posted the below. I think this is part of the marketing having this green "oooh! ahhhh!" effect of the light. Sad to read posts in this group their main thing is to see how little chlorine they can use.

    Looking for a locket!

    I want to get my wife a sterling silver locket. I got one from a site. I thought it would be a good quality locket since it was $150. But it is not. It feels like silver plated plastic. It isn't marked ".925" with a hallmark it just has a "ster" stamp. And the chain I think is hollow. I know I...

    Bug on adaptive forum

    I found what is either a bug or design flaw in the mobile version that is rather annoying. This is in the notification section. There isn't any "mark all as read" button and even though you might read all the notifications in the desktop version, that doesn't always carry over to the mobile...

    Curious - Drain Plugs

    Why do the pool closers put the drain plugs in the pump basket instead of just putting them back in the equipment? I see this every year (I pay to close but open myself) but never understood the logic. Is it just to "entice" the homeowner to use the closing service to open? If there is no...
