    Water Leak and Part ID

    Hello TFP - I have a bad leak in the part circled below. Would anyone be able to ID what it is? and what needs to be done to stop the leak? It looks like some sort of an air release and water is overflowing through it. Thanks

    FL Pool Neglected for 3 Years

    Hello guys I'm back again. Water became completely clear last week so I thought I was done with SLAM. There was no overnight FC loss so I let the FC drop to 5 this past Monday. However there's some fine dust on the bottom that swooshes away when I brush. I've been running the pump two days...

    Spa Pump/Jet Doesn't Start. No Noise

    Hello TFP. You guys have been a tremendous help. I'm almost near the end of SLAM and water is clear. However my spa pump just broke, so here I am again :). A couple of days ago I cleaned the spa pump basket and put it back in, and all of a sudden the pump wouldn't turn on. It worked fine before...

    Nothing. No clicks/hums. I had to hit the lid open with a rubber mallet. Possibly something's loose inside...

    SLAM Day 5-6 Holy cow! I couldn't believe my eyes this morning. I could actually see the bottom of the shallow end. Water literally cleared overnight. Gotta keep SLAMing though until it's sparkling clear! Check out this spa pump basket. Never cleaned in 3 years! On the other hand, after I...

    SLAM Day 3-4 Test result below. Today was day 4 of running the pump without filter. When do you all recommend I put the filter back or should I run without it for a few more days? Water is cloudy with slight greenish tint.

    SLAM Day 2 Test result below. Again at 7:30PM, FC was at 12 so I didn't add anymore chlorine. Does anyone know how to release pressure from the 2nd pump I have here for the spa? I need to open it and clean the basket but not sure how to release pressure. Thanks.

    Yea, running the pump 24/7, just without the filter. The pump hasn't worked this hard since 2016 :ROFLMAO:

    SLAM Day 1 Test result below. At 7:30PM FC was maintaining at 12 so I didn't add any chlorine. Let's see how much it drops tomorrow! I'm currently running without the filter. Thanks. I think I've seen your SLAM thread. Hopefully I can have my pool back soon too.

    4/26 11am test (after all CYA dissolved) FC: 0. Water didn't turn pink. Can't test CC if FC is 0, correct? CC: did not test pH: 7.2 (was 8.2 on 4/21) TA: 90 (was 110 on 4/21 but didn't use SpeedStir then. 90 is probably more accurate) CYA: 20-30. At 30 slightly visible. At 20 almost invisible...

    Thanks guys and you're right Chris I should just listen to you all :) Another question. I put the sock with 36oz of CYA in front of one of the returns this afternoon. 5 hours later it's almost all dissolved already. Is this normal? Instruction made it sound like it'll take much longer.

    I was going to ask you guys about how much liquid chlorine to add once CYA is 30. My current FC is 0.5, Target is 12. PoolMath says I need to add 132 oz (1 gallon and 1 cup). To a newbie that seems to little? I've seen in other threads people picking up 20, 30, or even 40 gallons of...
