    Confused

    I needed to pump water off the pool cover and then realized that my outlets around the pool were turned off when the pool was closed last week. Was it ok to turn my ET back on and the pool lights/outlets breaker? Because that's what I did. I left the breaker off for heater/pump/swg. Is it ok to...

    Vinyl Liner Pattern Roundup Project - Post Pic & Name Of Your Liner

    Love2fly, My ledge is a 10ft circle, I think 14 inches deep. I wanted a place where my little ones could still have fun without being overrun by everyone else splashing and being rough. (Not for tanning). Everyone ends up hanging out there though and it's plenty of space for that. But I could...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    The next 10 days will not be above 73 degrees so last night after swimming I turned the heater off. The season is officially over for us. I have to schedule my closing and buy a tarp, etc. My water is already at the bottom of skimmer and I will continue to maintain the water chemistry until I...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Night pics. Kids got to have their first night swim the other day(first day of fall). It was still 80+degrees at 730! So I had them jump in before bed routine.

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    I'm thinking about closing at the end of October. So far we have been lucky with the weather being warm enough to swim almost daily (and def on the weekends). Looks like the first weekend in October is gonna be a cold one though! When I buy a cover, can I just get an oversized rectangular one...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Trying to convince the hubs to buy stones, indoor outdoor carpet, (or anything really) has been difficult since it's the end of season. I like to choose my battles (heater now instead of later, sundeck). We will put that money towards topsoil though, so thanks for that confirmation!

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Thanks for that. We already filled one trench and they showed up an hour afterwards (which was almost a week after it passed inspection) and actually said they wouldn't fill the other one instead (which was already half filled and shorter). I really wanted to be petty but I'm so over it...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Besides a couple of punch list items (wrinkle in sundeck liner that may or may not be fixable and need escutcheons for deep end ladder), we are done. There is a big debate about who is going to backfill the first trench that was dug for electrical, which was then used by plumber a month later...

    Thank you for clarifying that. And salt doesn't change that?

    I would think galvanized steel but someone more qualified than me will have to answer that.

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Question....I understand the logic of leaving the heater on but what happens when there are 2+ days of unswimmable weather? But does it make more sense to turn it off until the night before we want to swim and let it heat up overnight? And since my swcg will stop working below a certain temp...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Ph is 7.6(ish). Electricians finally came yesterday to install my outlets and my pool lights. Pool lights were hooked up but only the sundeck light was installed. They said they needed longer screws for the other two so left at 430 and said they'd be back today. I called today around 1 to...

    Is it time for me to add muriatic acid? Could the cement have raised my ph? Been above 7.8 for two days now.

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Lazygirl, I dont have a robot (yet), and my TA was 100 but for some reason only 10 showed up. The pool feels less slick today. I brushed 2 times and vacuumed today. I also did a proper backwash/rinse after all of that. The deck only feels a little sticky and in some spots slick when wet. Fine...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Vinyl pool😊, but yes I think I somehow used the wrong water when I tested. My ch is 225 today. But I'm always confused when doing it...am I supposed to mix in between drops of r-0012? I have seen it written both ways but the directions that come with the kit dont say to mix. Also, my cya seems...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Concrete was slimy after watering it today. Is that normal? How long will it be like that? Pool felt slimy also. Although I'm not sure if some of that was in part because of the sliminess on the bottom of feet due to the deck. I brushed tonight and will vacuum in the morning. What do I need to...

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Yes, the pb sent someone over yesterday for pool school and he did it then. I want to do it longer but figured I'd wait until after deck was poured and try again next week. But it did help.

    New pool in Jersey...they're here!

    Concrete is done. Electrician called and said they can come Tuesday after I told her that our loan expired next Friday and she said that I should've told her about the loan. Umm ok, didnt realize that would've speeded things up especially since pb said they were already paid so..whatevs. They...

    Concrete tomorrow. Still trying to schedule lights to be installed. Told them I would wait for the outlets and then she replied that my permits were ready to be picked up. But still no date for service yet. Made final payment to pb because they are almost done and we were supposed to pay most...
