    Ph vs alk

    I added 1 cup of muriatic acid to lower the ph. Next day I added 2lbs of baking soda to raise alk. Now the ph is back to 7.8 and the alk is at 70ppm. Am I right, if I add muriatic acid the ph goes down and the alk goes down also, if I add baking soda the alk goes up and the ph goes up? If...

    Water sw open - Rheem Heater

    I cleaned the pump basket and backwashed the filter, I didn't have time to play with it today, but it did run ok. The heater came on and stayed on like it was supposed to. I'll get more time tomorrow to fiddle with it.

    Water sw open - Rheem Heater

    I don't know. I've been checking the pressure gauge when running at high rpm and still reads around where it started the season with fresh de. Normally I would have backwashed by now. I am new to the variable flow thing. I'll take a look at the whole setup tomorrow and make sure everything...

    Water sw open - Rheem Heater

    I am suspicious the water pressure switch is going bad. The story: I installed a new vs pump this year, the 7 year old rheem heater worked fine for the first 2 months. I found a low speed that satisfied the heater and it ran fine at this low speed, 11 gpm. Last week I found the error message...

    cya and swg

    How fast can I add the cya. I have to add 7 lbs of the granular cya. I have done the sock method in the past, took a whole day or more. I also put it in a knee hi nylon, maybe a little faster. When I used hth pods, the sack disintegrated real fast, maybe 20 minutes, and all the cya was in...

    cya and swg

    I was maintaining cya of 30. Maybe thats why I had cloudy water yesterday. I am in the 2nd day of slamming the pool. I had an overnight drop of 3ppm. So my plan is to slam until done, then restart the swg and then increase cya to 70. Thing is if you look at the chart to slam the levels for...

    cya and swg

    I was reading the chlorine/cya page (Chlorine / CYA Chart - Trouble Free Pool) checking stuff and noticed the recommended cya level is 70 to 99. Is this right?. I am new to the swg and I had set the cya at 30 like I always did with bleach. Should I raise he cya to 70? Thanks.

    Can I make my wfe-6 a 2 speed pump?

    Thanks to all the members of tfp who helped me through. I installed a new liner, a sta rite vfp pump and a rj-60 swg. I have been up and running for about 2 or 3 weeks now and all is well. I went with the company who originally installed my pool 30 years ago and they did a good job. I paid...

    My led readout is unreadable - rheem branded heater model P-M336A-EN-C

    Part # 013640Fis the LCD Display. It is a small ic board with the lcd on board. Pulled the old one off, gently pressed the new one on. Surprise- it worked!
