    Pool Price

    This is pool bigger than mine in width and more concrete work but nothing about the design or spec screams anything over $130-150. Everything on that sheet is 1.5-5 times marked up. The cost of the concrete work is ridiculous. Not only are they charging a ton for it, on top of that ton for the...

    Yeah that’s laughable pricing. Probably double what it should be.

    New build in DFW Area UPDATE: Fill Complete

    Well the conversion to the SWG happened right before Labor Day. It went off without a hitch. I had everything dialed in until I had to turn off the pump for a few days while they replace five coping pieces, polished, and sealed the coping including the spillway. Everything looks much better now...

    Pool & Spa Build - DFW - North Richland Hills

    Nice tile. I’m biased because I too have the Nanz line just in the darker I think. It was an expensive upgrade for us but it turned out great.

    Yeah I am burning 5 FC a day, I have some intense western sun shining on my pool. Between that and the extremely weak chlorine, that was my problem. Everything is going great now. I’ll be glad when I can toss in my robot and switch to my SWG.

    New build in DFW Area UPDATE: Fill Complete

    Got in today and the darker spot in the deep end isn’t noticeable when in the pool. It’s only really noticeable when you are on the far side of the pool where no one will ever be unless they are walking around the coping. There is rough spot in the plaster it’s about 1’ x 2’ area near the drain...

    Yeah I am not going to SLAM it. I guess I’m just gonna have to keep a constant eye on it and stay ahead of the chlorine loss. I’ll do the overnight chlorine loss test tonight.

    The pool is crystal clear. I think it was the bleach. I put in 2 gallons of it this morning and it was still under 3. FAS DPD put it at 1.4. I added more and it’s up. This is where is am at currently. FC 7 PH 7.6 TA 90 CA Hardness 230 CYA 30 (I guess I was off earlier when I said 35-40). How...

    I mean I added a gallon and half of chlorine around 6:00pm tonight. I didn’t test until I got back home four hours later and FC is less than 1. First time I added chlorine was the night this was posted again late in the evening and the next day there was zero FC upon testing around 7am. The...

    So what you are saying with my pool getting western sun and the Texas heat from 11am to sundown, I’ll probably have to be adding a gallon of liquid chlorine multiple times a day to keep it up to that level?

    That’s what I have been using. Everything else is balanced. It’s just FC that I cannot get to maintain. I’m going to chalk it up to not using enough chlorine at a time. I’ll figure it out tomorrow I guess. The only thing I have added to date has been muriatic acid which I add to keep ph down to...

    It’s Pool Essentials 10%. Date code says 21 202 which I Assume is around July 21. So it’s about 2.5 weeks old and was probably stored in 100 degree weather. That’s probably my issue. The thing is though even if this is only around 5% now a gallon should bring it up to 3.9. I added a gallon last...

    This is kinda what pisses me off about the pool school. They didn’t actually give much info on how much of what to put in just go to Leslie’s.

    I need help. I am following charts and the app but my FC keeps dropping to below 1 within hours. How much liquid chlorine or tabs do I need to add to keep above 3. I’ve gone through about 4.5 gallons of chlorine in two days. I guess I need a lot more?

    So it was 3 FC after a hour last night but it’s down to zero this morning? Is that normal what should I do? Just continuing to add Chlorine each day till it reaches 3? Or?

    New Pebble - White spot (before filling)

    Well that explains the two white spots in my pool. They aren’t noticeable unless you are specifically looking for it.
