There are many common swimming pool mistakes and oversights committed by home owners, however innocently. This overview of pool fails will help you avoid some pitfalls and keep your personal backyard resort up and running. (more…)
Without a doubt, one of the things our customers have a hard time finding are replacement parts for above ground pools. Often times, above ground pools are handed down from one family member to another, or are purchased at discounted rates from neighbors. As a new pool owner, you’re ecstatic and cannot wait to have the family over this summer for some fun in the pool.
But, there’s just one problem.
While installing the pool, you realize a couple of top rails and top caps need to be replaced. You spend hours online and calling local pool stores but no luck. There seems to be no outlet for above ground parts anywhere! What Bobby from across the street neglected to tell you when he sold you the pool is that above ground pool parts are very specific to each make and model. Even if you find pool parts that match your size and shape pool, there is no guarantee the parts will fit if they are not the same make and model. Due to the fact there are hundreds of different above ground pool models, there aren’t any universal or generic parts that can be used on different pools.
Don’t fret! There are many available above ground pool replacement parts and with a little help, INYO may be able to get these parts for you.

Their efficient power usage was ideal for small devices that had limited battery power. They were limited to that role because initial LED technology proved too weak for area lighting. The popularity and technology development of LEDs have taken leaps and bounds in the last few years due to the government enforced phasing out of the standard incandescent light bulbs. (more…)
