    Pentair Racer bag STINKS!

    Not really. No big trees near pool. I was just trying to see if anyone else had had this same problem and had a solution. But I can just deal with it. I just thought it was really weird for something to smell so bad when it's in chlorinated water all the time.

    Pentair Racer bag STINKS!

    My hands stunk after handling it so I figured out that's where it came from.

    Pentair Racer bag STINKS!

    The bag on my pentair racer pool cleaner smells like pond water (for lack of better description). It's a new bag this summer. We empty it every couple of days. Our pool water certainly doesn't smell like pond water. It's crystal clear and levels are all good. I can't figure out how something...

    Losing at least 2ppm of Chlorine/day (no CC)

    I recently switched from Trichlor pucks to liquid chlorine (10%) and I feel like I'm using a ton of chlorine. It might be a normal amount but I wanted to check here. My CYA is around 50, so my minimum chlorine is 4ppm with a Target of 6-8ppm, so that's what I'm striving for. But it's dropping...
