re: Getting an in ground pool. Any suggestions and tips? - Crusty
[quote]frick the whirlpool. Separate detached spa is much better and costs far less to heat up. [/quote] Huh? When I switch my controller to "spa mode", no water over flows into my pool. So, I am only hearing the water in the spa and yet when I treat the pool, clean the filters, whatever...I am t...

[quote]I have several palms that are about 30' tall. Don't get the ones that get real tall. They drop seeds annually and those little bastards will clog up things like you can't imagine[/quote] Really? Do you know what kind of palms they are? My plans are to drop a few Sylvester Palms in by the...

[quote]Regardless, every time this thread comes up you see guys promising "thousands of dollars" in savings, and that just isn't remotely true.[/quote] For the record, I never said this. I am simply saying that for me...the maintenance has been easier with the salt water pool than with the in-li...

Did their quote include installation? The reason I ask is the cost of getting permits and certified plumbers to run your gas line to your heater could be the difference. I had a run of about 100 feet and the plumber alone cost me $2500. ...

[quote]You would be the first I've ever known with a SWG that didn't have some sort of issue with pH ramping up every once in a while or scaling. Glad you don't have those problems.[/quote] I hope you didn't just jinx me. Like I said earlier, I have had to add some muratic acid from time to ti...

[quote]They think it's saltwater like the Gulf of Mexico or something [/quote] yeah, when I tell people it is a salt water pool, this is similar to the responses they give to me (most of the time). I can't sense any salt or chlorine. It feels like a bath tub right now. I really wish I had a ...

[quote]Also, the pH will always be spiking with a SWG pool and you'll be adding acid a lot more often than if you had a traditional chlorine pool. [/quote] My experience so far has been just the opposite of this. ...

[quote]also, you can absolutely tell when you are in a salt water pool. [/quote] I would say most people cannot. I have had dozens of different people swim in my pool this past summer and not one person said "yep...this is a salt water pool". Most don't say anything at all, but the ones that a...

[quote]I have had the 3" inline for 5 years now and I am struggling to figure out how the chlorination of the pool is in any way a "maintenance" issue.[/quote] Maybe it is not the system but more of the actual pools themselves? I'm not sure. But, when I had my 3" in-line chlorinator, I was burn...

[quote]It's a salt water chlorine generator that you installed. It uses electrolysis to create chlorine for your pool. There will be an extremely small level of salt that gets into your pool, but make no mistake sir, you have a chlorinated pool.[/quote] Yes sir. I completely understand the con...

re: Getting an in ground pool. Any suggestions and tips? - Crusty
I had traditional chlorine in-line 3" tabs at my last house and I built a salt water pool at my current house. I definitely prefer salt water. You can't tell it is salt water when you are in it and it is MUCH easier to maintain (so far). ...

He said it was getting stuck at the ladder...so I assumed that is what he had? I guess above ground pools don't have corners though, so maybe he just has an older in ground pool??? First world problem? Maybe. An OT baller problem...doesn't sound like it. ...

re: drop in grill on custom patio kitchen - Crusty
Make damn sure you have good ventilation. If you are installing the grill under a covered area that connects to your house, you will need a bad arse exhaust system installed or the area you are installing it will need to be somewhat "open"...meaning no full walls behind or directly to the side. I ...

Lowes carries a corrugated french drain pipe that is bascially a pipe with a bunch of holes in it...wrapped inside a case that contains a bunch of packing peanuts. I had a similar problem at my house and I installed 3 of these inline (30' long). I then connected it to a regular 4" drain pipe and r...

Never heard of Talstar but reading the reviews online, it appears to work pretty well for most insects, but not many reviews mention spiders. Do you know from personal experience that it also eliminates spiders as well?...
