    *Review* - Pool Baron/Florida Sunseeker color changing LED light bulb

    Just wanted to give y'all a quick little review on this bulb beings there wasn't many I could find on it prior to purchasing it. Our spa bulb went out and we decided to replace it with a color changing LED, previous bulb was a 250w halogen (would get EXTREMELY HOT to the point that it could burn...

    Needing Some Speakers This Season?

    I installed a pair of Dayton Audio IO655 speakers last year and I highly recommend them. They are currently $86 for the PAIR. From a "best bang for your buck" standpoint...these cannot be beat.

    Best Places to Buy Liquid Chlorine

    I've been getting 12% for only $2.50 a gallon at my local chemical and janitorial store. Their stock is always fresh and replenished weekly in drums. Y'all may want to check and see if y'all have a local janitorial supply company and call them to inquire about their bleach.

    Pool and spa light...opinions please!

    Merged thread - TFP Mod Are your pool and spa lights on the same switch (meaning both the pool and spa lights come on at the same time when the switch is turned on) or separate switches (pool and spa lights can be turned off/on independently from one another)? Just trying to see what the...

    Pool and spa light...opinions please!

    Currently my pool and spa lights are on separate switches, one switch controls the spa light and the other switch controls the pool light...so I can turn them on and off separately right now. I was considering changing both bulbs to color changing LEDs and was considering rewiring them both to...

    Changing spa light bulb...do I need to lubricate new gasket?

    My spa light bulb went out, so I plan on changing it out soon. I've watched several videos and it looks pretty straightforward. From what I've read/watched, the lens gasket is supposed to be changed every time the fixture is opened. Does the new lens gasket also need to be lubricated prior to...

    Does anyone know what these liquid compartments are in my salt cell?

    Good point...I'll just monitor my FC as I normally do and if I have issues then I may address later. As long as it's chlorine output is sustained, then I'm fine with it.

    Does anyone know what these liquid compartments are in my salt cell?

    You're right...maybe I'm making a deal out of nothing. Who knows. It just seems that odd that on some cells this can happen to them and others it doesn't. And it shouldn't happen, but if it does happen then that's normal too.

    Does anyone know what these liquid compartments are in my salt cell?

    Well for one thing there are electrical components going into that space, you can see the black wires where they enter. And the second reason is what I stated before. She never specifically would answer whether or nor that area should be sealed. She avoided it each time by saying "it can happen...

    Does anyone know what these liquid compartments are in my salt cell?

    This is exactly my view on it. It either should be sealed and water shouldn't get in there OR it's not sealed and water should be able to freely drain out. I feel like they are just saying this to avoid having to replace it by saying "oh well, it got water in it...sometimes that happens, nothing...

    Does anyone know what these liquid compartments are in my salt cell?

    I called their customer service and spoke with Emily. I emailed her the 2 pics and her response was that this is "normal and can happen to the cell". I asked if I should try and drain the water out and she said "there is no way to get the water out from there". Then I asked if that area should...

    Does anyone know what these liquid compartments are in my salt cell?

    I have an A5 Resilience salt cell and it has some sort of built in compartments around the top that has liquid inside. Well one of the 4 compartments has a greenish-yellow liquid inside (circle with question mark pointing to it) and the other 3 have clear liquids. Does anyone know what these...

    Help/advice with recent calcium deposits/flakes in pool

    Ok, I'll lower it and shoot for 80. I have all 3 waterfalls on right now to help increase aeration and pH. I'll knock it back down to around 7.2-7.4ish every few days when it rises and then I'll recheck TA soon. I also clean the salt cell again when I get the chance. I have some hardness reagent...

    Help/advice with recent calcium deposits/flakes in pool

    Recently, I had to perform a short slam (for about a week) on my pool due to noticing a few small spots of algae. It was caused by a pool party for my daughter's birthday (about 20 kids in the pool) and combined with the extreme temps here (over 100 with heat index right now) it caused a small...

    Why did shocking my pool lower my ph? I'm confused...

    I have SWG system. I had shocked the pool starting 2 days ago. I added liquid chlorine bleach 10% during the day and at night I added a 1 lb pack of Bioguard Burnout 73 for the last 2 nights...yes I know it isn't bleach but my CH level is around 350, so it wasn't going to hurt (normally I only...
