Totally agreed! We have one of these in our current pool and it certainly doesn't get rid of any dirt/leaves/debris out of the pool. Living in Canada, we don't really worry about "mixing" the water to keep it cooler (if anything I tried to pull cool water from the bottom of the pool to get it through the heater to warm it up!). During our current pool reno, the new skimmers don't have the line going to the bottom drain and will be sealing that pipe so that its dead going forward.....A main drain can help you mix the water in the summer to help keep the water cooler. It is not much good for brushing stuff to really I have come find out I was SO excited to get a main drain but it has not worked like I had hoped. Oh well, live and learn.
I do! Besides, can't get a nice polished concrete deck with a hydro jet.What no hydro jet ?!?!
Nobody grinds anymore
In general, not very easy. It came off pretty easily in some areas where the Kool deck was really deteriorated though. Didn't help that the grinder I rented had a nearly worn out cutting disc, which resulted in occasional trouble clearing the cuttings even with pretty high water flow. Only got ~1/3 of it done yesterday. Will make sure to get a fresher cutting disc when I rent another one to finish the job this weekend.Jason, how easy did that Kool decking come up with the grinder?
Hah!This is hobby work compared to his day job
