  1. I think If you ask a moderator, they will move it.
  2. I have a auto vac too, but not sure on the brand, I thought I read that it was a triton, but not the dolphin. I will have to check. I love waking up early Saturday morning and seeing the sun glisten on the water and vacuuming the pool, its really peaceful. My mom had a pool that I took care of one summer and never had any water issues. This is my first pool and hope to not have any as well. Its amazing how so many people invest so much time and money in pools and still don't know what's going on.
  3. We've had very few nice days. Though some may consider 80s and low humidity nice, we often have had rain which slows outdoor projects down along with making it not so desirable to go swimming. I don't know about you, but I actually enjoy taking care of a pool, vacuuming, treating, etc..
  4. Morning folks, it's been awhile so I thought I would stop in. Plus I am trying a new coffee today. Death Wish, its bold but not to bitter. Supposed to have a high dose of caffeine, but nothing to give you the shakes. The wife and I have recently been doing alot of work around the house. Main level remodel, finishing the basement, installing a pool and major overhaul on the deck with a roof. So we've been kind of busy. Hopefully we will be done in the next couple of weeks depending how long the deck takes. As of right now we are waiting on carpet to go in before we finish all the trim and bar. On a side note, this is my first time in 20 years of home ownership I have had to shop for and have carpet installed (mostly had hardwood floors and still do in most of the house). But dam carpet is expensive. We decided to get all this done now as we would like to enjoy this for at least 10 years. Who knows what's instore after that. But we'll worry about that when the time comes. BigStew, glad to see you around. I see Tarheel is working on downsizing his system. I have a feeling he's going to miss those Lascalas. I recently made a big audio media purchase. I normally don't make large media purchases like this, but really wanted this. It's a Type O Negative box set with new cuts of their collection on vinyl. Its $200.00 for the collection of 12 disc. Unfortunately it won't ship until September, but hy then outside activities are winding down and I will have a nice man cave to sit and enjoy them. Here is a link to the box set if anyone is interested. From what I can tell about run out Grove, they re press a lot of odd balls on vinyl. Supposed to be great cuts. https://shop.runoutgroovevinyl.com/shop/none-more-negative-box-1.html Until my next visit, cheers and be well. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  7. I have been holding on to a Marantz Model 1810 that was my dad's, along with a dozen tapes. I believed that my tapes were in my camper when in it was flooded this spring. I even tried to convince the insurance adjuster that I should get something for them (no dice). A couple weeks went by and walked into my son's room to check him and little behold, the collection sitting on his dresser. I was surprised to see them there and when asked, he said they were something he wanted to try, so he grabbed them before we closed up last winter. Looking forward to getting the deck going so he can listen.
  8. I had the 18 version of this sub and was told the same thing from Velodyne. I want to say that they didn't offer any replacement amps either and recommended having it taken to a repair facility that could identify the faulty component and repair it. If you look on Ebay, I believe there is a company repairing these amps.
  9. Remember last time you got cheap shipping? There a reason good shipping cost. (I honestly don't know if your damaged Lascalas were a result of cheap shipping, just giving you a hard time). By the way, I am going to be in Vegas tomorrow, anything fun to do there?
  10. I'll take them, send them my way.
  11. I say DIY Build. I always like the 2-12 idea with something like the K510 or alike. Doing this may also allow you build a horizontal center if necessary.
  12. I am currently on the market for a new toaster. However, currently I own a 4 slice toaster that has 2 bad releases. This only being able to toast one slice at a time is less than half of what I currently can toast. Sigh, I guess I will have to keep looking.
  13. For that price I would scotch guard them and put them under the deck.
