    Future Fiberglass Owner in Memphis, TN

    Hello! I am currently under construction on a 14x30' Latham Fiberglass pool in Memphis, TN and am excited to get started on my pool journey.

    I Can't Get No, Flipping Suction--Stumped

    OK, so opened the pool this year and everything was normal for 2-3 weeks. Then, I suddenly stopped getting suction from the skimmer line. I cleaned all baskets and filters, since that is usually the issue. Still no suction. Assuming there must be blockage in the skimmer line, I used a hose...

    New Pool Bowing Inward

    Hi all! Forgive me if this isn't the right place to post this, but we recently had a new fiberglass pool installed (Imagine Pools Freedom model). It was a several month process due to the fact that after they put the pool in, but before they put the brick coping in or the concrete deck, it...

    Pool step repair

    We have fiberglass pool steps that had vertical cracks on all three treads. We had a local fiberglass repair guy come out and he put some type of adhesive epoxy down and laid a new thin tread over top of the cracks. However when he did this, he didn’t do a very good job and left our steps very...

    Vinyl vs concrete (or fiberglass)?

    I know this is probably a very old, debated, "abused" discussion. However, I am back to my house after a long time where I had to work in another area. I now plan to take several months off work and do projects around the house. My wife *demands* a swimming pool :D and asks about it every day...
