    Starting Over To Do It Right

    Also, I feel you on those ladders that come with the AGPs. They're cheap and made for children lol.

    Starting Over To Do It Right

    Ok so what made me nervous about putting a Hayward in, was that nearly every video or guide I saw you had to cut the butterfly gasket in half and trim the excess rubber from where you split it. I decided to keep it all intact. I held the faceplate up exactly where I wanted it and used an awl to...

    Got it done! Now just to clean up the water and landscape fabric/mulch. Got the Hayward skimmer installed too...no leaks! Did not cut the gasket, just in case anyone is wondering.

    So when I dig down to re-level/add pavers, do I need to add dirt around the pavers to make flush or do I sink them into the ground to make flush? I've thought about hard plumbing. It sounds good, I just need to figure out what exactly I need to get it all put together. What I have is an Intex...

    Starting Over To Do It Right

    So we bought our pool 2 seasons ago (Intex 14'x42" Ultraframe) and I wish I had found this forum before I put it up. I went ahead and drained it a couple of months ago, due to major algae (cover ripped and blew off during a storm and within 2 days had a nasty pool) and one side being about 2 - 2...
