| O-T Lounge|| Variable speed pool pumps - DrewTheEngineer on 6/22/12 at 12:13 pm|
Anybody have any feedback on these? I need to replace my existing one-speed, 1HP pump, and was wondering if the potential energy savings would be worth the additional cost.
I do have a pump timer and typically run the pump 8 hours over night and 2 hours during the day.
Thanks in advance ......

Do you have St. Augustine grass? Even though we've had a warm spring, and the grass has been growing alot, it's still early in the year for the St. Aug to kic...

Anyone have this installed, and if so, how well did it work with cooling? I'm more interested in keeping the house cool, although a lower electricity bill would be nice too. Thanks in advance ......

Are you into running or biking? If so, bring your gear and head to White Rock Lake. If should be really nice this time of year.
Otherwise, you should check out Dealey Plaza (where Kennedy was assissinated), and the museum in the Texas Book Repository where Oswald shot from....

As the others have said, first take a sample to your local pool store and have them analyze it.
Once you are satisfied with the chemical levels, and if you still have cloudiness, you'll need to put in some clarifier. This stuff, from Leslie's Pools works terrific: [link=(http://www.lesliespool.c...

Before going to St. Amant, Lemons was the head baseball coach and assistant football coach at Franklin High back in the late '80's. As someone who played both sports there at the time, I can attest to Coach Lemons being very fair and reasonable, even when he was tough on the players. He chewed me o...

Buy the extra seat and bring your car seat. Worked great for us a few months ago for a 21-month-old. Also, try to schedule the flight at nap time, or try to keep your kid awake until getting on the plane. Bring small toys and try to make it seem more like a car ride....
