    Replacing main drain cutoff

    Thank you New Dude! We’re definitely BELOW the water level with our gear, it would be more like a geyser than a shower, lol.

    Replacing main drain cutoff

    Hello all! main drain valve handle broken, can this be replaced or is it just too much of hassle? Someone told me the pool might need to be drained to replace it? We were using a pipe wrench to turn it on and off. Currently we’ve just left it on. Our pool is not winterized.

    The link to choose Trouble Free Pool as my charity is broken? I only get a “Sorry we can’t find that page message” when I click on Select. I tried multiple times and can try again later today.

    I have another question. I have bags of salt taking up deck space and exposed to the elements. Is it okay to start putting it in once we get everything ready and turn on the pump, even though we won’t be using the SWG and the water is most likely very cold, brrrr.

    Good points! Especially protecting the equipment which is very exposed. Not close to the house at all.

    Good morning! Isn’t this a beautiful sight! I’ve updated my signature to reflect the new liner (Tara Pools/Serenity) and we bought a robotic pool cleaner also. Shallow side skimmer is being replaced tomorrow. I am not closing this puppy so I’m not quite sure of my next steps except to get the...

    8/24/21 - Update - after the leak developed we threw in the towel and decided a complete drain with new liner would be the best choice for our circumstance. It made us both feel better too! A semi fresh start! Lead time is about 5 weeks so I’m excited about posting again once the process starts...

    TFP we have a problem. Pool lost almost 2 inches of water last night. Pressure is running at 11. Skimmers are running, returns are good. Still can’t see bottom drain. Both skimmers and bottom are turned full on at pump. We had tried to manually vacuum but never could get it right, so we gave up...

    No leaves or twigs, mostly green seaweed looking stuff. We’ve gotten a lot of the big stuff out and now we’re left with the muck. It seems to just slip through the skimmer.

    Thanks for the heads up, we will be sure to check the local ordinances. I definitely won’t be taking the fence guys word for it.

    Lol, Definitely have a new fence in the plans, we have a pooch that loves to go outside. ❤️ As much as I would love to have the black aluminum (it does look super nice) with as much area we would like to cover we will most likely go with black chain link. $$$$ everything is so expensive right...

    8/7 update - we added 5 lbs of cya in socks to the pool. Shaking and squeezing to dissolve. We don’t live on the property yet so we’ve been going over twice a day. My test kit came so I’ll check the levels this evening. On a positive note our local Home Depot had plenty of LC so we purchased 16...
