    Trying to identify Cal Hypo tablet

    That is correct. I only used them by themselves in a skimmer basket. Can’t believe I was told they were CH sticks. The way no residue was left behind I should have known.

    Pool is crystal clear, but sky high FC (22) and CYA (off the charts), and zero CC

    Recent CPO class/ pool maintenace debacle/Clorox now 6.0% sodium hypo

    I added 4 lbs of stabilizer in late March/early April when it was beginning to warm up. I had my CYA level up to around 60. I tested today at less than 40, really closer to 30. I like to keep my pool's CYA level around 60-70 with the extreme heat, intense 12+ hrs UV exposure, lots of rain...

    Preparing for deep clean Pentair Tagelus, nervous and skeptical

    I really want to give my sand filter a deep cleaning. I know I am going to have to make 3 cuts and install 3 union fittings. This is a Pentair Tagelus 325lb sand filter. Is it the bottom gasket that holds the filter multi valve on?
