    Free Chlorine requirements in cooler weather?

    I live in Florida so my pool is open year round. Since April when I said goodbye to my pool service, I’ve been taking care of the pool myself. With the knowledge and expertise on this site, all is well. Thank you. My question is about FC requirements with cooler weather and obviously cooler...

    Please use eye protection (goggles) when adding Muratic Acid

    Googles are the way to go. I’ve always given acid the respect it deserves but some vapors were coming my way on occasion. I had off and on eye irritation until I started using googles. Problem solved.

    Pump speed, Single speed pump?

    As I fine tune the speeds on my newer VS pump, I am curious what my old 1 hp Home Depot single speed pump speed was. Anyone know? Thanks.

    No flow in pool returns. What happened?

    Does that mean no flow to the returns? What about the 15 psi filter pressure? I wasn’t having any problem at 2200 or 1800 previously in the early summer.

    No flow in pool returns. What happened?

    Thanks Allen. No I didn’t increase the speed. Filter was just cleaned a week or so ago. That’s the interesting part. Usually, the filter pressure is very low to nothing at 1800. It was at 15 psi until I shut the solar off, then hardly noticeable.

    Solar heat on. Panels on two story roof. I was swimming in my pool this morning when the VS pump was running at 2200 rpm. Everything fine. When the VS reduced to the 1800 rpm schedule, water flow ceased in the returns. I got out and checked the equipment and the pool pump pressure increased...

    IChlor30 question - cell voltage?

    Thanks for the quick reply and that link. Have a great weekend. Living in the path of Dorian we are going to drain the pool some, hunker down, and get past this hurricane. I have extra liquid chlorine when the power is out.

    IChlor30 question - cell voltage?

    I just ran a diagnostic cycle of my iChlor 30. The cell voltage is 17.9. What is the normal range? I didn’t see anything in the manual.

    Speed Stir Question?

    Where is the best place to buy some extra beans? I see folks selling various sized beans on Amazon. Not sure if these are ideal. Would rather stay with the Taylor specific brand.
