    Leak at valve junction

    I used it on my own plumbing when I replaced a valve and did not glue it well. Pool plumbing is not high pressure so this method works well. Of course I would never use it on high pressure water plumbing like to the house. If you decide to use it make sure you clean the joint area well and sand...

    Pool Water Temperature Through the Seasons

    I never like it over 85 and prefer around 80. I will swim laps without a wetsuit starting at about 70.

    Aquarite problem?

    OK I did the off check and back to auto check. In the off position it shows 32.1 volts, 0 amps and 0 salt. Back on Auto it reads 26.6 volts and 5.76 amps and 2900 salt. Should I continue with the off for a minute and back on?

    Aquarite problem?

    A green light indicates that it is generating, but scrolling through the diagnostics it is showing 31.9 volts and 0 amps. Also the instantaneous salt level indicates 0. The average reading is 2800

    Bubbles in returns after dumping water

    I have had to lower pool water level due to rain a few times lately, by pumping to waste. When I turn the filter valve back to circulate I get about 10-15 seconds of air bubbles from the returns. Does this indicate a possible leak in the return line or is it normal?

    Am I being too picky???

    I think it will look better after plaster, tile coping etc.
