What Size Pump Should I get for my Pool?

If you’re looking to build a new pool or simply looking to replace a pool pump you may find yourself asking, “Is a larger horsepower (HP) pool pump always better”.

What you’re looking for is a pump that will be able to pump all the water in your pool through the filter in no more than 8-10 hours. This typically looks likes 40 GPM (gallons per minute) for smaller pools and 80 GPM for larger pools. However, […] Continue Reading…

When troweling the sand or vermiculite pool base, a minimum of thickness of 1½” must be maintained throughout. Spread the vermiculite out with a flat shovel into roughly 2′ X 6′ sections.

At the base of the hopper walls, bring the sand/vermiculite 2″ up the pool wall to the set string. It is important to avoid sharp edges or pockets in the pool bottom, thus avoiding areas for […] Continue Reading…
