When I want to start the pump, I hear a click
Check the voltage at the back of the pump. If your getting the correct voltage check to see if the motor is free. you can do this by removing the small shaft cover at the back of the motor and try turning the shaft with either a screw driver or wrench, depends on the motor. If it is free check the starting compositor. (a black on will have a dot where the wires go, if it black, blown out or leaking oil it is bad. A silver one is not always easy to tell with out a tester. If you remove it and set it on a level surface, flat bottom side down, and it rocks it is bad). If it is good and your sure your getting the right voltage and the motor spins freely your going to have to replace the motor or have it rebuilt.
If your not getting voltage and the jets indicator icon or light is on you may have a bad relay on the board.
If your still having the issue feel free to contact me and I'll walk you through what I can to get you fixed.

What is the best way to put an Above ground 4ft swimming pool in backyard?
I have absolutely no experience with pools but I have seen online video of the absolute disaster of rushing the job, skipping details, ignoring important instructions and not taking advice.
A pool holds a lot of water and it is important to remember every Imperial gallon weighs 10 pounds - an Imperial gallon is slightly more than a US gallon.
All that weight is pushing down and so level firm ground is a must and all that weight is pushing outwards so attention to the smallest detail is essential and don't forget how the shockwave from somebody belly-flopping into the pool will create huge unpredictable forces on the side...
Sighting it well away from trees will be good and not over drains close to the surface or over inspection or maintenance hatches and don't forget to cover the pool when it isn't being used.

Lay z spa 6cf error code
This is the REAL answer if you see the 6cf error code it's to do with the plug.
I had the error code 6cf and it took hours to work out what was wrong and it was so simple... the pump unit needs to be plugged straight into the mains plug. Wont go away or work of your using an extension cable.
After I plugged it into the mains plug directly error code disappeared fully working.
Hope this helps people and saves them hours of dread thinking they bought a broken unit.
