    New Pool Owners-- proper way to vacuum?

    If your pool is overfilled, like after a storm, you can vacuum to waste and kill two birds with one stone. Otherwise, I vacuum to filter and empty the pump basket right after.

    New pool owner: Tested my water with TF-100 kit. Please Help

    I would bring your FC up to slam level for your tested CYA with liquid chlorine (bleach or liquid shock ) and hold it there for 24 hours and then see if you can pass the OCLT test as your first goal.

    Frustrated! Green water won't budge

    I have found that if u keep up the slam for 3-4 days with your pump on recirc, then vacuum to waste before switching to filtering produces the quickest results with the least amount of filter backwashing. YMMV.

    Liquid Stabilizer vs Dry

    The only thing liquid CYA is bad for is your wallet. :deal:

    Raypak 156 natural gas heater issue wit lcd

    Yup .. turning it off and on a couple times usually helps. I suspect eventually I will have to replace my control board.

    CYA Disappearing Act

    Happens to me every. single. year. When I open, 0 CYA. Mesh cover. Just one of the joys of SE Pennsylvania I guess.
