    Water fill up question

    Call and ask,.. I filled my 32’X16’X54” for about $40 with city water, much cheaper than paying to haul water in.

    New above ground pool question

    Welcome!! The corners are designed to “float”. I installed a 32X16X54” this summer, it does the same thing. It allows for the sides to rock a bit when there is a lot of splashing in the pool! Good luck and enjoy!

    Thank you TFP! Just got the best compliment!

    So,.. I started my research 2 years before I finally purchased a pool. Of course my research sent me here. I’ve followed your advice, my pool contains, salt, CYA, Borax 50ppm, and enough Bleach to get me started. I added Muriatic acid when loading the Borax. Nothing else, and I’ve never, ever...

    BTB due and mannitol for Borate testing

    Thank you!! I’m hoping to love the feel and to get longer life from my SWG! My pH hasn’t raised past 7.5 since adding the Borax and MA,.. before it would raise to 7.8-8.2 almost every day.

    BTB due and mannitol for Borate testing

    https://www.troublefreepool.com/threads/borates-why-and-how.90257/ Hmmm,... after reading this, I thought I had the perfect set up for borates. I’m hoping to extend the life of my SWG, and enjoy the feel of the water. What am I missing? At any rate, it’s too late , the Borates are in the pool!

    HDX test kit

    Thank you, yes I did miss read Borate for Bromine. So I still don’t have a Borate test strip. I have ordered the Lamont test strips. I was hoping that I had more color options to choose from, and that it might be easier to read. But you are correct it is not any easier to read. So, now I have...

    HDX test kit

    Has anyone used this? Is it accurate? I have trouble distinguishing the colors in my Taylor safety kit, and I’m having trouble finding a borate test kit. I thought this would be a good alternative, and it is available at Home Depot. Any thoughts?

    How to replace pool leg on intex 22x52 ultra frame?

    I have seen this method mentioned several times. I have two pavers that broke and one that the leg just slid off of. How exactly did you use this jack? Did you lift the top rail?

    Intex 16 by 32 corner joints

    Theses are floating corners, even when full they float. Not even sure why they are there. I can easily pull mine out. The only one that isn’t floating is the corner where my paver broke.

    So,. Finally got my TA down, pH is 7.3, FC 2.5,.. CYA 60-70. SWG. Yesterday was the first day of full sun and two adult swimmers. I’m adding some bleach. My question is how much aeration do I need to raise my pH? I rigged this from an old pond pump. Is it enough?
