    Need help figuring out manufacturer of my pool please

    I don't have the caps anymore to find any numbers. I also don't have the contact info for the original owner. I think it's been about 6ish years now. I guess I'm hoping that someone will recognize it 😂. Thanks, all!

    Need help figuring out manufacturer of my pool please

    Hi all, I need to replace the caps on my pool. I have a pic from when we still had them, but I don't have any in hand to reference. I'm having a hard time finding caps without knowing the manufacturer. I do remember the caps were 2 piece. Thanks!

    Question about raising alkalinity

    Is it possible to eat through acid quickly? I added 43oz of dry acid (pool calculator said it would take it from 8 to 7.2, but who knows what point over 8 it was) and it got to 7.4. Pool calculator said 9oz of muriatic acid would take it from 7.4 to 7.2, but an hour after adding, it was still 7.4.

    Question about raising alkalinity

    Thanks! We add water about once a week or so, but no autofill. Gotcha, but it did test down to 7.2 and didn't change the alkalinity. Do you think it shot up too fast to affect a change? We just added more acid and are about to test again.

    Question about raising alkalinity

    Hey all, my PH is 8+, so I added enough acid to bring it to 7.2 and then started aerating it. Today, I tested it and the PH is 8+ again and the alkalinity is unchanged. I know this can take awhile, but wouldn't the alkalinity have changed a little bit?

    Stumped!

    No, I only broadcast it once. The other 2 times was in a sock in the skimmer. Yes, positive. I use Taylor's cya reagent. I just bought a new bottle. The cya is also new. When I first added cya, it went up. It has not since. The first 2lbs was broadcast in the pool. The next addition of 1lb...

    LOL, it's a pool store in TX. They have their own line.

    Been slamming since the 14th and not getting anywhere Hey all, We've been slamming since the 14th completely consistently and we're still going through 2-3 gals of 10% chlorine a day to maintain 20ppm. CC is 1ppm. It's hot here, but even when it was this hot last year, we only used 1/4g a...

    Stumped!

    It's possible there is. I'm going to remove the ladder and see if it stops this. I test twice a day. Since the ppm is so high, I would blow through reagent, even doing the small sample. The original 2lbs was a week ago (it was broadcast). I tested 3 days after adding and I still saw the...

    Stumped!

    I just checked the CYA again. I added 1lb of CYA a couple days ago (when it was still not cloudy enough to measure) and it's now up to 30. We passed the 15 minute test perfectly. I had to do a CC test (at 25 minutes) and it rose a bit more. So, we're clear on ammonia, correct? For giggles...

    Stumped!

    Thanks, all. Mknauss - I have the test, but the dot still shows at the very top after adding 2lbs, thus being technically immeasurable. I was advised not to add more before a week has passed. Thank you, Dave, I will do that. We can't keep chlorine in the pool. It seems to go away SO...
