Well, yard is already saturated anyway, so to help the sump pump along, I sliced into the liner, low, in a couple of spots. Nice little fountain effect!
That’s why I was going to order it elsewhere! I saw them cheaper than TPF on other sites and Amazon. Thank you for the link!! I just might have to order mine from there! Have you purchased a new pump/filter yet? That’s what I need to do! I didn’t add one to my purchase from The Pool Factory.
Yeah I have the 16” Intex sand filter with the .75 HP pump it came with. I definitely want something stronger but it works great! I don’t have a SWCG so that’s one less thing to worry about. Do you know which robot you want yet? I’m telling you, the Aquabot Rover Junior is amazing and the price can’t be beat.No, I’m dithering around about what I want, but I can use my current one for now. Other than a little build up on the salt cell, it’s in good shape. I’ll be soaking cell in vinegar are soon as I buy some (I use that instead of MA on my salt cells).
My next acquisition will likely be robot, but first I’m dealing with leveling, electric, and bonding.
I’ve got that same pump. Works great!
There’s multiple reasons why one would want to use a pump:Several reasons.
First why buy a pump and pay to run one when you can use gravity for free and literally do the same thing?
Second, I often use a small hose or hoses to keep from flooding my yard, not an issue in your case.
For my cover I use several 3/8" clear rubber hoses.
Its as simple as put the entire hose under the water to get the air out and then pull most back out with your thumb or hand over the end and pull it down to the ground. You'll have water coming out and it won't stop until the end in the pool sucks air.
I've mentioned it a few times on the forum because it seems most think they need a pump for their covers etc. Not trying to offend anyone.
I sooo wish I would have ordered a foam cove & made them install it ! My sand cove is messed up in one spot so there’s a lovely wrinkle i have to watch/ clean now since my pool is “freshly” buried I don’t want risk draining just to fix that. I’ll just have to wait & live with it a while so the soil will be well compacted.
