    Texas Winters; Waterfall, Leaves, Draining.

    Moved from: Featured - Freezing Weather - Broken connection Thanks for the post - I hadn't thought of draining the water feature/fall - I'm right down the road from you ChristiK - in McKinney. I left it on all last winter, but maybe I need to drain it this winter. Been scooping leaves non-stop...

    Dolphin 30i Choking on leaves

    My Dolphin is overwhelmed by the sudden mass of leaves (windy here) and keeps getting jammed right in the debris inlet - mainly packed in the cloth flaps. It does not look like the flap can be removed. It seems to be working fine, but just gets too many leaves at once in the opening and plugs...

    Spa Blower with it's own mind

    When I first got my new house, we tried to figure out the spa, and decided it was only meant to give us warm water, not really like a jacuzzi. Fast forward to April when we had some hot days here in TX and I turned on the heater and spa. My little on screamed with joy at the bubbly water as I...

    Tree and debris battle... Help with Skimming

    Aqua Logic Timer - Super Chlorinator Setting

    Just moved into our house in early Oct, and I'm finally starting to learn how to work the automation and system using the remote and the main panel. One setting that confuses (or worries) me is the Super Chlorinator in the Timer menu. I've read the automation controller manual from Hayward on...

    Polaris 280 Tail Stuck in Inlet on Side Wall

    We've been in the home three weeks, inheriting the pool and after returning from a business trip this week, I came across the Polaris Tail stuck in the wall inlet. I tried pulling it gently out, but it does not want to budge. The cleaner has been working well the whole time until I saw this...
