How do i get a replacement rain top for a northwest territory silver creek 18x10 3 room tent ?

try an outdoor shop
a trick here is to water proof the cover before using it
outdoor shops sell a silicon product that you can spray on the cover after you assemble it
let it dry completely and then when it rains the water will not penetrate the material and will run off
you will find that if you do the entire tent with silicon then when you touch the sides of the tent when it is raining ,the water will not come in where you touch it
any other advantage is that when the tent is stored for a time the silicon protects the material.

I have a krystal clear 635T filter pump that we got last year with an easy-set above ground pool. We just set the pool up for this year and are having trouble with keeping the filter under the water. ...

There is still air in the hose.....get all of the air out by holding it under the water completely or by filling the hose with a garden hose...

I Have a Easy Set Pool 15X36, And a Salt Water Generator How much Salt do I add for the first Time?

The Compupool CPSC/CPA Series is recommended to run at a salt concentration of 3500 ppm. If you are not installing a Compupool unit, check your manufacturer's instructions for their recommended level of concentration . Use a salt that is at least 99.8% pure NaCl. The preferred salt is an evaporated, granulated, food quality, NON-iodized salt. Avoid using salt with anti-caking agents like sodium ferrocyanide, also known as yellow YPS (prussiate of soda. These cause some discoloration of fittings and pool surface finishes. DO NOT use calcium chloride.

Using a salt water test strip, measure the current salt level of your pool. For the Compupool generators, ideal is 3500 ppm. If the level is low, determine the number of gallons in your pool and add salt according to the Salt Table. For example, if your pool has 15,000 gals of water and your current salt level is 2500, you need to add 125 lbs of salt.

My acurite pool hawk reads 158 degrees regardless of the themperature.

I have it on mine as well. With mine, water got inside the sending unit. I took it apart and dried as best I could and reassembled and ut worked fine until more water got inside. I am now looking for a Tupperware type waterproof container to put the sending unit in and then I'll secure the new enclosure underwater on the exit steps of the pool.
