    Wow. Hot tubs are difficult

    Just got a hot tub. The wild swings these things take when they get used versus not being used is crazy. In our pool the TFP BBB method works great. I am realizing that tablets are way more practical with hot tubs though considering you need to drain and refill fairly often anyway. What are...

    Power ionizer

    So I randomly had a power ionizer delivered to me from powerionizer.com Not Something I have even been looking into. I’m not usually one to go for any gimmicky sanitizing products. What is the word on something like this? Is it worth putting in? The plumbing for it looks like it Might be restrictive

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    I bumped CYA by 10. This actually seems to have helped quite a bit after a week or two of observation. I am thinking my CYa was lower than I thought. Seems weird. The CYA test seems like it would be easier to mistake a higher reading than it would be to mistake a lower reading. I could not...

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    The lab test did come Back with phosphates at about 940PPM. I know that shouldnt matter if I keep chlorine in check but is it Possible that it would increase chlorine demand?

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    @Newdude I dont use a solar cover this time of year. water typically stays at 82 without it. We have a darker liner which I think contributes to higher temps overall and some localized higher temps by the liner that I suspect may also increase chlorine demand. I have done the OCLT a few times...

    I had it all through May and June. Although during those months I get a ton of tree pollen

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    @Newdude Thanks. I know what your saying. Do you also agree that 3.5-4 ppm per day is normal for a sunny day with an average amount of swimming? @mknauss it is a k-2006 test kit. I got a large bottle of the CYA reagent since I do the test often because I always question the results.

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    So I guess the question is still whether or not I trust my testing vs Water Guru lab testing.

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    Really? Even in Michigan? Why do I feel like I am using twice as much chlorine as everyone else I ever talk to? It’s about 3.5-4 gallons per week for an 18,000 gallon pool. Are there any other reliable CYA tests that are easier to interpret?

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    I think part of me really wants the lab results to be right so I can end this crazy 3.5-4 PPM per day chlorine usage that I have always had with this pool.

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    I have not. I did compare with results on my brother in laws pool when going from CYA 0 up to 40 with the PoolMath calculated additions.

    CYA results from WaterGuru TEST

    Just a quick intro. I have had WaterGuru for a little over a month now. Seems consistent enough to help me increase the interval in which I use my FAS-DPD test for Chlorine. I sent in the TEST lab sample right after I got it and just got the results back. Everything looks to be similar to...

    Waterguru Inaccurate Readings

    Wondering if you got any response from them? I just got mine and I am. Pricing some inconsistency as well. Might be a little early to judge though. Also, have you noticed that if you do a manual reading you can’t go back and see other previous readings for the day?
