I live in Phoenix Arizona where it gets very hot also. I was advised to protect my equipment from the sun to make it last longer. I personally used redwood lattice and some shade cloth sold at nurseries. I was also advised to spray paint my PVC plumbing to further protect it.

There are a number of things you could use to repair a crack in the plastic steps in your pool. You could use pool putty for example.

A screened in pool may be cooler thank a pool outside. This is because it will get more shade and may be out of the sun more.

The typically thickness for a pool covering should be 2 mm. This allows the pool to retain the heat of the water. The best pool cover is 12 mil thick. They generally cost several hundred dollars and can be purchased from any pool store.

The pool filter, the very large tank, at or on the equipment pad. It would be located next to the pump ( that piece of equip. with the motor attached to it). The tank could be painted or unpainted ( stainless steel), it could be metal, plastic or fiberglass. k

You could probably get one anywhere, but mainly during the summer. Places like Walmart, Kmart, and Target should have them

Since salt increases waters' electrolytic properties PLASTIC furniture would be best.

You must first DRAIN the water off the pool cover!! Get a hose or plastic tube (available from most pet stores (fish department) and syphon off the water. This will take th weight of the water off the cover so you can lift it off of the pool.

Your pool control system must be capable of handling a two speed motor. You'll have to go to the manual to determine connections for your specific motor and controller. You can't effectively use a two speed motor if your control system is not designed and programmed for such a motor.

A swimming pool cover is generally a long piece of plastic covering that is generally green or blue. When you pull this piece of plastic over your pool it will keep out leaves and bugs as well as protect against the elements.

You should fill in the pool. A dead frog will ruin your pool forever.

140 degrees to 160 so it will feel hot to the touch. All motors will have a thermal cut out if they get to hot it shuts off. If you are having this problem contact a pool expert.
