    Hola from Phoenix

    Hey everyone. Found the forum while trying to research what seems to be a mustard algae problem. My pool is 3 years old and starting to show signs of my not-so detailed care of it. I look forward to learning from all of you in the different topics.

    Bienvenidos.

    Immerse yourself in Pool School. It will save you a lot of typing out questions.

    Hint: Look for symbol by thread titles - that means there's probably pictures to inspire you.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Re: Hola from Phoenix

    Hey guys, I filled out my sig to give some info on my pool. I'm trying to think of all info that would be pertinent. My pool has real boulders that line certain parts of the pool and the trim that over hangs is flagstone. Should I include that info in my sig to help diagnose any issues that I am having?

    Also, I added pics to my original post

    Welcome to tfp, Modawg2k

    First thing if you do not have one already, is to get an appropriate test kit: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...kit_comparison I like the tf-100 more reagents for the money.

    Your sig looks good.

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.

    Welcome to TFP

    Nice looking pool and backyard retreat with a nice view to top it off.

    Only thing I would add is SWG after the Pentair Intellichlor IC40. Just makes it that much easier for readers to see that it is a SWG pool.

    Well keep up on the calcium line is a pain. Haven't found anything to get it off the stone from the spa spillover. Can't complain I guess. Haha

    Besides high calcium, we can't forget this little gem that we deal with several times a summer....
