    Fc will not go up

    Water cleared up overnight. Fc down to 3 so back to 24. Tested cya again to verify and am not getting any.. very odd bc I added 10lbs a week or 2ago and it was reading 50 a few days ago.

    Fc will not go up

    Fc will not go up

    Ok I added way more to get over hump and added 8 bottles based off my made up math and am at 25 now so I guess I will see what it is in am and how much it clears. This pump moves some serious water and hoping this filter is huge upgrade. Oversized it as much as I could

    Fc will not go up

    Yes I tested my cya 3 days ago. My swg was not generating after I installed pump. They said it was phosphates or dirty cell. I cleaned cell (didn’t look scaled) but salt readings went from 3300 to 3600 so must have been some scale. I currently have swg off and adding liquid chlorine now...

    Fc will not go up

    Hello everyone - I installed a pentair vsf and a new pentair tr100 sand filter and while everything was down for the 3 unexpected days it took my pool went murky and now I can’t raise fc.

    Discharge leak on threads new pump

    unfortunately I had everything removed and every single pool store was out of them and pentair told me a standard male adapter works fine and the high temp fittings are not required. I guess it would be best to order and install these!

    Discharge leak on threads new pump

    Installed new intelliflo and got small leak at the discharge thread. I used magic lube red on thread and hand tightened and it bottomed out right when it got tight. Wondering if my fitting is defective and short by a thread or do I need something else?

    Union issue

    I plumbed in a new vsp and filter as well as new jandy valves. When I installed the jandy valve that connects to the pump via a union I guess I did not have the union connected so the valve is tilted ever so slightly which causes the union to be down 10 degrees. Luckily this all connects to abs...

    Automatic cover gear issue

    The cover was just replaced last year so thinking the damage was done when old cover was on. We only used it a handful of times this year and did not bind at all. I am unsure of model but here is a picture of set up. I will try tapping it out but did it briefly and it did not budge but i...

    Automatic cover gear issue

    My auto cover sheared a bolt but i am unsure if previous owners had it jerry rigged or what i need to do. Is there a special hardware piece to fit both sides of these holes? When i wedge a bolt in there the cover opens and closes. When it falls out it just spins the shaft so i know something...
