Its been a year that I have not posted.
I just want to say that , without this forum and the expert members, I could not have the best water clarity, comfort to the swimmer etc etc ( all the good things )........so thank you to everyone who have assisted me in 2009.
When you spend enough time learning this forum and do the homework right, stable water all year round is not a dream. It is a reality. I have not done superchlorination in like a year.............amazing this BBB and the 101 of this forum.
I have finally get my water to be very stable, this is so rewarding.
For those who are still trying, keep learning. It is a process that you can't master in just a week or two.
Once you know your water, you can predict its behaviour and when you do, even a pool party with lots of kids will only produce very minor clouding which will go away in 12 hours........must be dirty kids.....hahaha.
Two things I learnt, one is install a flow meter.
All those water flow estimation pool builders calculated need to be verified as total turnover is a very important key.
2nd is, your pool is not a bathroom.
I only allow swimmer in after they had taken a full shower and shampoo their hair....yep, this is true.
Its cheaper and less frustrating to provide soap and shampoo than to see my pool less sparkling or having to run my second 1.5HP back up pump . As with green water problem, prevention is always better than cure.
I never turned off my main pump ever since over a year ago. Only during repair some months ago that it was shut down and it did its nearly 20,000 hours service and it lived up to my expectation. Enjoyed the water clarity so much, USD 15 cents per Kw/hour is no big deal, keep them pump running and I get only two turnover a day of 24 hours.
Have fun everyone and again thanks TFP and its core members.
While at it, guess how deep my pool is...............?
