    Thanks TFTestKits, just got my stuff

    Pool Thanks for the tips all. Will leave CYA alone and lower PH. And SLAM. The picture link looks much better than it did.

    Thanks TFTestKits, just got my stuff

    So here's my results, my pool was mostly green last week as I was fighting with high PH. I think I have it under control. It's grey and cloudy, I can see the last remnants of an algae center to vacuum out to waste. FC is high because I've added a gallon of chlorine each day while I waited on...

    Swamp

    Actually...we are further down in the pandemic calendar now, but chlorine is a little bit of a struggle in my town of 20k. Pool stores probably do, but Walmart has zero gallons of bleach today (has smaller sizes of various). I don't use it much, but Lowe's was out when I was getting my family...

    Swamp

    It was all I had. TFT or Amazon ain't so quick with shipping with all that's going on lol. I could have thrown bleach in, but how would I even know how to measure it? I was going to shock it based on pool store reading, but Walmart sold out if pool bleach. Everything piled up

    Swamp

    FC - 7.92 cc - .15 pH - 7.5 TA- 70 CH - 136 CYA - 37 Salt - 2635 Borates - unknown These are from 24 hours ago. Used an algaecide, 16 oz (never used that either!), And flocculent, left pool pump off and SWG Off ...then vaccuumed to waste .

    Thank you I didn't let them talk me into using a flocculate, which I personally never liked.

    Swamp

    Ive been in this house and pool for my second year and have never had a problem until this year. I ran a fountain for a short time in the spring after opening and I don't feel like I've never got my PH stable. Now I have a swamp. I would have just SLAM'ed but I let a family member borrow my...

    Ideas for netting or other tips to have accessories close by

    I just put up this 0' pool last year. This month I built a 10'x10' deck and it is shoved up against the pool in a way where there is a 30" opening for the ladder/entrance to pool. We have a "wedge" or triangle of space available, shown in the red circle, where I was thinking of somehow putting...

    What's your current pool temp?

    73. I bought a nice buoyant lounge chair from Sam's last year- if you can stand to get in the pool and manage to get on it- you can enjoy the sun and just about stay out of these frigid temps :)

    Start up - no chlorine available-Dichlor-PermaSalt

    Don’t had more stabilizer or more Dichlor?

    Start up - no chlorine available-Dichlor-PermaSalt

    The CH is within goal range, but I’m not sure what it was. I was teaching my student to follow the directions in the kit for testing. I totally forget about the Lowe’s and Depot. Those stores had lines to get into.

    Start up - no chlorine available-Dichlor-PermaSalt

    I’m helping a family member start of a pool. They just bought the home. It is not near my home, so I had to travel this weekend and encountered some issues: 1. It had a PermaSalt system. I knew nothing about that- but so now. We Weill remove this and replace with a SWG. 2. I didn’t realize that...

    Replacing Perma Salt system

    Thanks for replying . I guess my question was... can I simply disconnect this PermaSalt and hook up a saltwater generator/system of any kind?

    Replacing Perma Salt system

    I'm helping my family member open up a pool and see that it has the Perma Salt system. I've been reading, mostly on my phone (so it has been short) today and it seems that this is not a salt water system at all, eh? Well, what to do next? We are slamming. They would just as soon go...

    Help with water on cover

    I have always had a pool, but just moved and installed this 30', and I had always wanted one of these pumps. Before I was just using a submersible pump when the cover was full of water. I read all of the reviews of this and it is A++ in my opinion. I only put it in last week and one night I...
