    Introducing the pHupinater!

    More spray then a speeding bullet! More powerful then a firehose! The pH-up-inater is the latest in pH up (TA not up) technology! Ok... so I just built it with a few parts, but I thought of a cool idea to attach a 3/4" pipe to it, and slide it into a slot under the diving board so it is neat and tidy. The kids can even use the board still.

    To turn it on, I disconnect a union to one of my returns, and attach this. Simple and easy. Thanks everyone for all your ideas found here that inspired mine. I can improve on this, but this is my prototype.






    While I am posting photos, I added these little adapters to my filter so that I could see air inside and also convert the threads on the filter to a union for easy hookup. God bless clear PVC... at $6/foot it better be good (only bought 2' ...



    Thanks all. Keep sharing your ideas...

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.

    If it was on Facebook, I would "like" the pHupinator

    (Actually, I like it anyway)

    Re: Introducing the pHupinater!



    My question is, does the phupinator effectiveness improve or decrease with a lot of diving action?
    TFP Expert who uses Pool School and my TF100 test kit along with PoolMath for my: Round 11K gallon AGP with deep end, 20" sand filter, Matrix 1hp 2spd, 6 2ftX20ft solar panels (and solar cover!), Intex SWCG (copper bars disconnected) and a Rubadub hot tub (chlorine). The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    Thanks guys! (and no, the "pHrototype" is the aerator that the ring bearer in LOTR made...)

    Cool! And if you happen to have any Olympic class divers using your pool, they will appreciate being able to see the surface of the water when diving.

    Re: Introducing the pHupinater!

    Have others found that the water level drops faster and requires top up when aerating? It makes sense to me that it would - I mean, you are spraying water around - evaporation will happen.

    I think I need to top up about 1.5", but it has been about a week since I put the hose in. Does that seem out of wack?
