    Salt consumption

    amazing. I'm at 50% generation and still getting high chlorine, I need to set up a schedule to dial it in. Other than shocking after a party, the only thing I find myself doing is adding muriatic acid since I tend to run the pump often (spa spillover) and ph is always hovering around 7.7-7.8...

    Salt consumption

    really??? I was told I needed to add approx a bag per month. Between my builder, his maintenance contractor, 2 separate cleaning services, and my local (and highly rated) pool store, it seems absolutely no one know anything about pools. Amazing. Looks like I need to test, possibly...

    Salt consumption

    Just googled, I guess I should get a salt test, clean my t-cell, and check and/or recalibrate. still doesn't explain why it hasn't needed salt for 2 months.

    Salt consumption

    Hi Everyone When I first joined the forum around June, my Hayward panel was reading salt really low, about 2400. Using the pool Calc, it called for about 1.5 bags of salt, I ended up dumping 2 bags in and it was reading around 4000. Since then, it's still reading at 4000. The water is...

    Hayward T-cell 3 Flow Questions

    just an update, flipped the T-cell and no change. luckily I have a variable speed pump and found out that it doesn't start generating until 30% (low is 25%). I also managed to crack a union. I have major over-tightening issues. Luckily it's not leaking, but I'll have to change it out...

    Hayward Omnilogic / Jandy Valve Actuators

    My PH has gone from 7.6 to approx 7.7 this week. I bought some muriatic acid, pool calculator tells me to drop it to 7.0 then aerate to raise it (to lower TA). But yes, I have a VS pump. I will look into the configuration you mention. I haven't messed with the automation outside of the...

    Hayward Omnilogic / Jandy Valve Actuators

    Basically have the return go to pool, to spa, or 50/50 I like the spa to get circulated, but also like the flow from the pool jets/nozzles. This way I can keep the spa overflowing into the pool, but also keep the circulation in the pool pushing the surface towards the skimmer. I'm just weird...

    Hayward Omnilogic / Jandy Valve Actuators

    I'm pretty sure the answer is "no" but here goes... Is there any way to set the valves partially? I have 3 valves, and only 2 Jandy actuators. I was told my control panel can only control 2 Jandy Actuators. I would love to be able to set my return valve between spa and pool.

    I'm still learning the SWG. But hope to get it dialed in pretty quickly. I started a thread regarding it in the equipment forum. Thank you. And no worries - I failed to mention it

    According to that chart, I'm aiming for 4-6 ppm with SWG. How much will my SWG help maintain that level? Our Texas sun tends to be... sunnier... than other places.

    Hayward T-cell 3 Flow Questions

    Today I checked my OmniLogic panel and it read 2800 with a constant flow light. My Hayward Tristar 1.75hp was running at low (25%) as I normally have it. I bumped it up to full (100%) and it gave me a proper reading (3700, a little high). My question is, is the T-cell generating at a low...

    Taylor F2006 / CYA question

    The instructions say to add the mixture until the black dot "just" disappears. Does that mean it immediately disappears? Because when I add a drop, it disappears until it settles, then slightly reappears. Yes, I'm an overthinker.

    I haven't touched the water in days, which is exciting. I was shocking almost every day with CalHypo until I found TFP. Bumped up the CYA and poured in a gallon of 10% chlorine. We swim almost every day, so 1/3 gallon of chlorine went in about 4 days ago, along with 120lbs salt.
