    Featured Hole in the liner in the deep end. Caused from Muriatic Acid?

    I bought my house with a pool in October 2020. Last Friday I had my pool converted to salt water. I've been trying to get the Chemicals balanced out and today I came home to a huge hole in my liner at the deep end. It wasn't there yesterday evening. Sunday, I vacuumed really well bc I had to...

    Safely remove concrete deck around vinyl liner IG pool for repairs?

    Hello all, I recently bought a home with a neglected pool (installed mid-1970s) in need of rehabilitation. I’ve had several pool contractors come out and received varying suggestions on how to proceed. The pool at a minimum will need a new liner and plumbing/electrical updating. The concrete...

    Those with borderless vinyl liners…

    To all of you who chose to go borderless with your vinyl liner, how did your liner hold up over time? I understand the importance of a waterline tile of some sort for Gunite pools, but because we’re going vinyl, there may be less of a need. I understand that having a border may lessen the look...

    Liner leak in inground just after closing

    Our pool started leaking when we put the winter cover on. It has the Pacific Pools construction with vinyl liner, polymer walls and "K brackets" supporting the walls, and a sand bottom. We were loosing about 1/2 inch per day, but now that there is only about a foot of water in the shallow end...

    Help with my liner color options!

    Hey! We're at the point in our new pool process where we need to decide on a liner - GAH! I've made myself slightly crazy in my attempt to find exactly what I'm looking for. We'll be putting in a vinyl liner and I'd love for the water to be a light green. The catch - I don't want a brown or sand...

    Brand New Here...trying to decide on pool type

    I feel like all my research keeps taking me in circles, so I'll ask here.. 1. What makes gunite a "high end" pool as opposed to fiberglass or vinyl liner? What do I really get extra ? I am looking to get a pool thats about a 20x40 rectangle , so the shape flexibility means nothing to me 2. In...

    Calcium Hardness, vinyl liner, saturation index, gas heater

    I see a lot of posts and recommendations on here that say CH levels do not matter in vinyl liner pools. I understand that it will not affect the liner itself. I am curious though about the effects of a low saturation index on pool heater exchangers and cement pool decks. Many other sites...

    Relationship Between FC and CC

    TLDR; I started SLAM last night. ~80 CYA, started at 0.3 ppm Chlorine, 7.5 pH. Dumped 4 gallons of 10% bleach. After it was dark (about an hour after dumping) FC read 34 ppm, CC was 1 ppm. This morning before the sun was up, FC read 22 ppm, CC was 0.5ppm. What is going on here? My novice...

    High CYA and green pool

    Have an AG pool, trouble-free for over a year, but started having issues about a month ago when the pool turned green. We've been using tablets with an occasional shock. When we shocked it this time, it felt like the problem got worse. I read through the forums and other online places, and I...

    Vinyl Liner Main Drain in the wall

    We have a 9'18' Intex Ultraframe pool going on its 3rd summer. Last summer I changed out the factory inlets to 1/1/2" making it standard pipe. No leaks occurred and this worked great. However. In tinkering with things I am wanting to change the drain plug (see attached photo of plug location)...

    Hi everyone, we have a Vinyl liner that has separated from the wall in various places above the water line. The pool guy says it's not repairable and mentioned it could be $7k - $10k to replace the liner down the road. He mentioned we could get 1 -2 years more out of it (the liner is probably...

    Several issues, but most alarming is electric current in pool

    I think the backstory is important here because it might answer a few questions. Last year we had our vinyl liner replaced and had lights installed in our pool for the first time. Our house was a foreclosure and the lights were one of the items that disappeared before we bought. I had noticed...

    Green Pool

    I have been trying to clear up my 18K gallon above ground vinyl pool since the end of March and I am having no luck at all. We have been getting a lot rain which probably isn’t helping, but I’ve tried “slamming” the pool, try my best to brush, scoop out debris, draining some water and...

    In-ground Vinyl out of liner

    Hello, I’m new to this website and desparte for some advice! We just took the cover off our in-ground vinyl pool to find that some of the the liner came off the track. We thought we could fix it, but it’s impossible cause it’s so short, I don’t know if it shrunk. We are using hot water to pull...
