    Radiant winter cover ripped. Better replacement ?

    Especially on the deck side. I suppose the cable, pillow in the middle and a lot of hanging bottles may work.

    Radiant winter cover ripped. Better replacement ?

    So does anyone have the deluxe coping? Really don’t think the winch and cable will secure it.

    Best above ground pool vinyl liner patch.

    1/16” x 3/4” is all. On the bottom. Clear gorilla tape or pool patch? If the latter, anyone have a favorite?

    Wow. Can’t win. Had her at 7.7 or so. About 2” of rain. 7.2 or so and that makes me itch!

    pH

    Will do. Took pH as soon as they got out of the pool. Then added the SA.

    pH

    I haven’t found anything that says there are different strengths of soda ash. I put half of what pool math app said to and that was to raise 0.3 pH

    pH

    Well that’s what you get for screwing around when it’s “close enough.” Once balanced, my pool is very very stable. TA was 100 pH 7.2 Was in it six hours yesterday with the extended family. Another pool function coming up Tuesday. Was hoping to shift pH to 7.5-7.6 or so. Pulled out the soda...

    Bonding issue

    It only does it when I am in the pool. Nothing standing outside the pool. I’ve removed the bonding wire and scrubbed it and the connection clean. Electrician drove a ground stake in the ground I guess to look for any stray voltage. Who knows. I’m nuts.

    And just a reminder there is ZERO tingling (actually more of a burn) in front of the skimmer. Just IN it.

    T Thanks. I swear I just felt it again. Wife and electrician say I’m nuts. Here’s a CRAZY question. If I were to set a multi meter to 200m DC (yes DC) and received a reading of 178 by touching the black to the bond on the skimmer and the red in the skimmer water, does that mean anything...

    Leaking pump

    New dual speed is great. So very quiet on both high and low. Whether it’s just appearance or better filtering, on low it appears much cleaner. No more small pile of stuff in the middle of the pool. Eye is aimed the same.

    Bonding issue

    Anything connected to the motor uses terminal ends. Edit: so you are saying the wiring is only for testing and three electricians that install pools here all don’t know that? I’m not saying you’re wrong I just find that disturbing

    Bonding issue

    Wow on high this is much quieter than the old one. On low it is really quiet. Pump installed. Fresh cut. No tingle. Forgot last year it was tripping the breaker. Had the store bench test it and they said pump was fine. Got it back and installed and never tripped breaker again. Leads me...

    Bonding issue

    Electrician left. He checked everything. No corrosion. Everything connected correctly. Drove a grounding rod in the ground and checked bonding or whatever. Checked the light even though it doesn’t need to be bonded. He swapped over the twist lock and I will install the new pump and...

    Sub and timer look clean. Main panel may need CBs checked or replaced. They rebuilt the panel a few years ago due to corrosion (main wouldn’t even shut all the lights off) and didn’t replace most of the CBs.

    Interesting reading. My decking was built after the fact and is made of wood. Pool ladder is plastic. Was the deck supposed to be tied into the bonding?

    Thanks for the patience and guidance. Although I will have an electrician check things out, I prefer to understand things. I will check the main and the sub panel grounds.

    Thank you. Will do. Very interesting. I guess confused if it isn’t the pump where is the juice coming from? And it is only in the skimmer I assume because there is too much resistance once you go beyond that.

    Does that mean wiring is reversed? If so, what wiring as this has been like this since installed. Has to be.

    And apparently they now don’t require twist lock. A straight plug is acceptable.

    Dual speed pump here Friday. Electrician will come check it out anyway. He said the 116 when pump is off is weird.

    Thanks. I sent the electrician a message. Something is giving me a tingle. As I stated earlier, Finger in skimmer it tingles. Wife shuts off pump using switch on pump, tingle stops.

    appreciate the reply. Why do you think i'm going to feel a tingle with the new pump?
