    Heater questions

    Hello everyone! We need some advice. We want to add a heater to our 2-year old pool.

    Size of SWG

    Hello. We are finalizing our pool specs before hopefully signing a contract in the next week or so. I've read here that the SWG should be 2X the pool volume but need some additional guidance.

    Help a newbie with proposal comparison?

    Hello. We have never had a pool before and are unfamiliar with the equipment. We are trying to compare quotes from two pool builders and are not sure of exactly what these things are or if something is missing or even if one builder is proposing a better product than the other. Can anyone...
