    Who has the best variable speed pump Pentair or Jandy.

    i posted a review about a week ago on the Jandy VS Flopro. So far i love it. I love the fact that it is removable so i can bring it inside in the winter. It is so quiet when it runs that i found myself doublechecking the first week to make sure it is actually on. I also upgraded to the Iaqualink...

    installing Jandy VS ProFlo

    My Jandy VS Flopro is supposed to be here tomorrow.

    Algae Problem

    can anyone else look at the stains in the above picture. They are definitely spreading and now seem to be appearing on the bottom of the pool not just the walls. When you brush them a little bit of a cloudiness occurs but the stain does not go away at all.
