    Pool clear when opened, OCLT is good. I'm all set to start with "normal" balancing, right?

    So I opened my pool to nice and clear water. FC was around 8. OCLT is successful. Am I right to assume I can just start balancing like normal now? Still too cold for SWCG. Today: Current Target FC 4.0 5.0 CC 0.0 0.0 pH 7.5 7.6 TA 70 CH 175 CYA 50 70 Salt...

    So I went with salt, and now I have a leak

    So I removed the heater tube. There are some clear holes along the weld line on the back. Very disappointing.

    So I went with salt, and now I have a leak

    Well I appreciate the link to a replacement part. Are those just mounting studs? The manual states using a "third party" salt system would void the warranty, which I took to mean they wanted to sell me their "salt system"? Should I refrain from salt in the future? What else could cause a...

    So I went with salt, and now I have a leak

    Been using the SWCG for approximately 4-5 months. It's the Saltron Mini. Salt would have been around 3000 ppm +/-

    So I went with salt, and now I have a leak

    So my spa manual specifically states “using third party salt systems voids the warranty.” I thought I knew better and went with salt. Now I have a leak from the “heat exchanger”. Any thoughts? call the manufacturer and play dumb?

    Pentair Clean & Clear Plus 420 filter element lifetime?

    Funny, so I checked the invoice and it says "- Filters sprayed out and placed back in drum for safe keeping" Except that they were definitely NOT sprayed out, they were filthy. So yeah, I'll be speaking with them soon.

    Pentair Clean & Clear Plus 420 filter element lifetime?

    The o-rings for my drain plugs are also all cracked already. They were removed, and stored inside for the winter.

    Pentair Clean & Clear Plus 420 filter element lifetime?

    Yes, they were left inside over the winter. I should have been more pro-active I guess, but I was away deer hunting while the PB came and closed the pool. My wife said "they put everything in a box in the basement" and I never investigated until now. 100% their fault, but I probably could...
