    What's your current pool temp?

    Good Morning, It has been a while that I have posted anything here. I woke up this morning to the shallow end of the pool being frozen, and half of the top layer of the spa. The variable pump anti freeze was running all night, I am glad I invested in this. My question is do I need to added...

    Taking care of my pool

    Hi FF, yes, the reason for the drain would be for the high CH. The pool guy started asking me if I need any services such as draining, I did mention to him I know how to do it on my own. That's when he told me about bleaching the walls. I told him my walls were fine. He said that there is always...

    Taking care of my pool

    I am thinking of adding borates to the pool, to help manage the Ph and keep bees, wasps and pigeons out of the water. We had no idea that we had so many other animals around the yard, before the pool was built. I think some around us has a wasp nest, and this morning I found something that...

    Taking care of my pool

    Thank you, Knauss. I have adjusted the flow to a lower speed a few months ago, it has helped a little not to much, it will always mess with the PH unfortunately. I am not sure how to keep the CH from raising, when I drain and fill with new water, it's always at 400. I will need to drain in the...

    Taking care of my pool

    The water is from the Las Vegas Valley Water District. The PH is kind of hard to manage, we do lower it to keep the TA at 70 and CSI down. When we had the pool built the designer suggested that we have a spill over on the spa, and it wraps around the spa, sounded good at the time. The water...
