You' have red stuff growing on pool liner?
Asked in Swimming Pools
Is foam or sand better for the bottom of an above ground pool?
I have had my pool for 8 years. I lined it with Styrofoam and then used tuck tape (red stuff) on all the seams. It finally got a hole in the liner this winter. I talked to the pool place where I bought it and they mentioned that liners last approximately 5 years. I am happy I got 8. The only thing I have noticed for a couple of years now is that the Styrofoam had lost its consistency and I was starting to see the bottom ribs of the pool. With now having to replace the liner I will go with Styrofoam again. It lasted a long time.

How do you get wrinkles out of a pool liner?
Wrinkles in Swimming Pool Liners Here is advice: I ended up with a few large wrinkles in our new IG pool. We had a bad winter and a wet spring. The water table rose and left wrinkles. I waited for a good rain to bring the water table up a bit. I then gently used a wooden handled red rubber toilet plunger. I plunged right next to a wrinkle and gently pulled up and away. Took some time but a lot less then a liner reset from the pool place by me ($525). Worked like a charm. What I did is to heat the pool to about 92 degrees or higher to make the liner softer. Then, I used my rubber "broom" on the squeegee side and started smoothing from the center toward the edge. Note: my wrinkles were not tightly pinched together so I had some movement still possible. I got the rubber "broom" from one of those home shows where they demo it as a better broom for carpets and floors. Mine has a straight edge opposite the bristles that acts as a squeegee. The whole edges are a soft rubber that won't scratch the liner, and I used care in the operation to make sure nothing got ripped. You can try to remove them with a broom, squegee, or your foot. The only way to do it right is drain the pool,use a big vacuum cleaner between the liner and the pool frame and let the vacuum do it's work. Then make sure that ground water doens't get between the liner and the base during the winter. I had to construct a french drain all the way around the pool and pump ground water all winter to keep this from happening. (Built pool on under ground spring, I think). You can actually pull the vinyl liner away from the coping and use a vacuum smoothing out the wrinkle - this is the way that pool are initially installed - not a big problem - don't worry. You might try using a regular bathroom type plunger. We recently had a new liner placed in our pool and the guys who installed it told us that we could do that if we ever got a wrinkle. Answer If it is fairly new liner empty the pool put a blower between the liner and outer area to lift the liner, Then reverse the process. While deflating in your stocking feet push pull and tug gently to get the wrinkles out. Kinda like making a big bed.

Asked in Red Eared Slider Turtle
What could be wrong with your very young red eared slider turtle if it has white stuff growing on its legs?
We had young red-ear sliders several years ago and the white stuff you see may simply be that your turtle is growing, and shedding old skin. It floats as they swim and could be mistaken for some type of white algae or fungus, I suppose. If the turtle otherwise seems happy and healthy, I would assume that's what it is. Good luck!
What is the easiest way to locate a leak in the bottom of a patterned vinyl inground pool?
I had a leak in the bottom of our gunite mosiac tile covered pool and was able to find it by lowering the water level to about 1 foot then dropping red dye slowly around the perimeter of the pool. The dye headed straight to the leak. We fixed the leak and have not had a problem since. To find a leak in a vinyl you can use the red dye,although the easiest thing to do is call your pool dealer and have them come and with a leak detector.Then use a clear patch or scrap piece of your liner(always cut in the shape of circle).
