    Any suggestions how to fix this?

    Crossthreaded? That will make it leak.

    That reminded me of a picture I saw of someone using a radiator as a heater.

    Small leak w/ Hayward Skimmer on Intex pool

    Do you have it going across a seam? If it's the horizontal seam is the water over it?

    New AGP - advice/feedback on equipment, plumbing, electrical plan

    I used these. I just set it up this year so I can't speak to their longevity but they seem very nice. I'm not affiliated with that supplier but I did buy all of my fittings there.

    Vacuum Hose/Plate Issue

    Nip It In The Bud

    The water was clear and I passed the test. CC was 0. I've already SLAM'd again earlier. I'll pull the ladder and get in at some point and hand scrub the seams. I think it's hiding in there.

    Nip It In The Bud

    Just swept up a bunch of algae. I guess I need to SLAM again. I really don't want to have to do it once a month.

    Nip It In The Bud

    The water is still cloudy, there are dark, algae looking spots and this build up on the seams.

    Passed. I didn't see any new algae but I probably will this afternoon.

    Nip It In The Bud

    Is that the only thing I should ignore in the app? What if I pass the test? Or does that just not happen when the water is cloudy?

    Nip It In The Bud

    I displayed massive amounts of POP getting my pool to clear up this season and it was beautiful. I just upgraded my pump/filter and now the water is a little cloudy and needs a brushing everyday. So today I tested everything and noticed my CH was low. I didn't think that would cause it but I...

    New Filter/Hard Plumb

    I used 2" valves with 1 1/2" pipe to keep restrictions to a minimum. I used flexible PVC for the horizontal lines coming out of the pool. Got a small floor drain for the regular suction cover. I forgot to take a picture of it but here it is. not found | AquaStar Pool...

    New Filter/Hard Plumb

    Got it all hooked up yesterday. This thing moves way more water. The skimmer is a force to be reckoned with.

    Through wall skimmer install tips?

    I cut mine yesterday. It was just as easy as everyone says it is. We put the top screws through the seam and when cutting the opening left the seam there. It shouldn't make a difference in how well it works.

    New Filter/Hard Plumb

    Not one to leave well enough alone I couldn't help myself with the pool my wife wanted. She didn't realize it would be a new hobby for me (like I need another one). So I kept an eye on the price for a few filter/pump combos during the cold season and grabbed a Pentair setup I thought would...

    Help needed to plumb Intex pool

    I don't know what they did there but you can use a 1 1/2" threaded PVC fitting like they did on the valve. That's what I am going to use soon.

    Intex Dual Intake pool

    I am going to hard plumb mine and I was curious as to adding a second return line. Maybe I'll turn the second inlet hole into a return jet and have the skimmer in the middle.
