Preventing rust around saltwater pool

posted by: ccp218 on 11.09.2011 at 11:51 am in Pools & Spas Forum

Just starting construction on a gunite pool in Olive Branch, MS and am concerned about the effects of saltwater on the iron fence around the pool. Seems like I read somewhere about a ion something or other on the pool equipment that can help minimize the problem. Can someone help me figure out what I am talking about so that I can make sure my builder does it correctly? Thanks!

Has anyone used mossy stackers for coping

posted by: Stefv1 on 02.08.2012 at 01:25 am in Pools & Spas Forum

I saw some stones at the rock yard that the customer service person told me she thought would work for coping on my pool. I haven't presented this to my builder yet so I wondered if any of you guys have seen this or used this.

Thanks

posted by: Stefv1 on 01.28.2012 at 11:11 pm in Pools & Spas Forum

I am in the process of planning for installation of my pool. I have decided to use marbletite freestone style in nirobi color. Has anyone else installed this and do you have pictures to post so I can see what color the water will be? This is the second time I've tried to post this. Hope it works this time.

Thanks

New Pool in Louisiana

posted by: trhought on 08.25.2007 at 01:36 pm in Pools & Spas Forum

Wanted to share a few pictures of our new pool. It has been a wet summer here in NW Louisiana, but the pool is finally providing family enjoyment after 4 months of delayed construction.

Still a lot of work to be completed with landscaping and slide installation but at least we can cool down between outdoor work sessions.

This forum has provided wonderful information since we started our pool design a year ago and has continued to be our primary source for information during the construction process.

The kids love their new pool!

How to post photos

posted by: rwest on 05.04.2005 at 12:25 am in Pools & Spas Forum

Here are three methods to post photos in either the Gallery or Discussion area. I see enough people asking I thought I would post it.

Ok, you have two easy ways to do it and one hard way

1) For quick posting: Go to www.tinypic.com.

  • Click the "Browse" button to find the picture you want to post from your computer.
  • Select the picture then click "Host It". After a few moments (depending on connection speed and size of the image) a few tags will appear at the bottom.
  • Simply copy and paste the entire contents of the "Tag" entry into your forum post.

    Viola, you have posted a picture.

    2) Recommended:Start a photobucket album (www.photobucket.com). Every time you post a picture, you will have a "Tag" entry to cut and paste into your forum posts. This is the benefit over the other online photo album sites.

    3) Most difficult: Go to a picture you have posted in your Webshots or other album.

  • Right click on the photo and choose "Properties".
  • You will see the image url. Copy this URL and paste it into your forum post.
  • In front of the url add (img src=" including the quote but change the ( to a <
  • At the end of the pasted url add "> including the quote.
  • This process will work to link to any photo on the internet.

    This will link back to your Webshots or other hosted photo.

    That is photo posting 101. Good Luck.

    A word of caution. Do not post a link back to tinypic in the "Optional URL Link". At times, people post undesirable pictures on tinypic.com. You do not want anyone to accidently browse to the next anonymous post to find an undesired photo.
