I mean, you’re legally obligated to jump in at least once before shutting it downJust thinking, there's a good chance that I'm not going to get in the pool at all this season.
I've been following this journey - you are amazing! Congratulations on what you have accomplished! I hope you can find someone/some way to repair the cracks. A quick google on repairing cracks in fiberglass pool walls brings you to a number of videos by API Pools like the one below; maybe they are worth calling to see if they could recommend anyone in your area??? Good luck!
Probably something that would be easy to adjust skimmer height to water level like Amazon: Bestway skimmer rather than a through-the-wall style.What kind of above ground skimmer are you looking at?
Only if said jump would provide a positive thermal experience. I'm in the South, so we don't shut down/winterize. I've got solar panels to put up, but won't have time to deal with them until late winter/early spring (Feb-Mar).I mean, you’re legally obligated to jump in at least once before shutting it down
Is actually clearer than pic shows and I'd say it's bathtub clear ... if I could remember that far back (I'm a shower gal ). Yes, main works & is open as of about 3 days ago. If fiberglass repair drains pool to fix, not going to matter.THat IS clear! ... So does your main drain work?
I think it would be almost impossible to wrangle such a pipe to get and stay over the main since it's 8 ft deep and 8 ft from each of the 3 edges. Can't even get the vac head to "stay" there. Then trying to pour slurry down it?True but I was thinking of finding a way to use it to add DE to your filter! A large pvc pipe with a funnel (with small part cut off so it fit inside the pipe) to pour the DE down to the main drain that will take it to the filter!!!
My Oh My, you must really be bored and grasping at straws for entertainment. There are boat repair places around and I'm sure that they could do a fine job on the cracks. The problem is that the cause of the cracks has to be resolved. I had the pool resurfaced 12 years ago and then the cracks were only 3"-4". The resurfacer patched them, but they reappeared a few months later. Perhaps he didn't do the best patch job, but I doubt that. I have a company coming on Wed to take a look; their web site shows that this is the type of work that is their bread and butter. Cross your fingers for me.Just finished reading through the whole thing the last few days.
Did you get a chance to do an OCLT? Things are looking GREAT! Well done... keep it up. I know you will...Probably could try an OCLT tonight, but brushed up a lot of stuff late, so don't expect anything to come of it.
Well, yes and no. Even though my FC & CC looked good last night, I expected that my late brushing would churn up some chlorine activity and didn't test until a half hour past sunrise this morning; FC lost 3.5 ppm.Did you get a chance to do an OCLT?
Tried that, but not enough flow even with the hose.I always just added DE to the skimmer when I had a DE filter. You can always just run a hose in there if you need more flushing power if you are not getting enough from the spill over from the pool.
