    Jandy Truclear with VS Pump Run Times

    of course, i get how they work. i am not a newb by any means. i just like to circulate my water throughout the day and don't always want to be adding chlorine to it. my question was more along the lines of "assuming" if it's on it's generating chlorine and yes, my sig is old. just had a house...

    Jandy Truclear with VS Pump Run Times

    I attempted searching for my answer, but maybe I am asking incorrectly. This is a new install and I have a Truclear and a Hayward VS pump where i can specify RPM's and whatnot. If I'm understanding this properly, the way the setup is done, basically whenever my pump is running the SWG will be...

    Conflicting gallons help...

    even doing that, i still come up with 18k... 40*16*5 * 7.5 - 25% =18k... i guess 1k is better than 7k

    Conflicting gallons help...

    Having a new pool installed starting next week. It's a Viking Caribbean "16x40"... my problem is what I am being told doesn't line up with what I find elsewhere. Using a basic formula of Length (40) x Width (16) x Average Depth (5) x Free Form Multiplier (7.5), I come up with 24k gallons... I am...

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    well that doesn't sound like fun... is there any kind of wiring diagram or breakdown of parts i could find somewhere? from what pentair said, these are AO smith motors... but can't find much in the way of a breakdown anywhere...

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    i don't see much in the way of "springs"... :-(

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    i'll have to go out there and look to see if i can find what you're referring to. not sure what i'm looking for, but i'll see if i can find some springs without taking it completely apart...

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    certainly... but i can manually get things going now with a little screw driver spin, so i don't want to mess things up completely without know exactly something to look for... not really in a position to purchase another pump just yet... so i'd rather have to work things manually as opposed to...

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    This is going to start off like the typical "my pump is humming" threads, but wondering if my issue is a bit different. pump runs almost 24x7 on low, and then i run on high for a few hours each day. went to go backflush the other day, turned pump off, switched filter gears, reached down to...

    CYA Readings

    the only water "replacement i've had in the last few weeks is adding back in due to evap... i haven't even had to backflush yet since adding that last 4lbs... and where would i find "liquid" CYA at?

    CYA Readings

    no sir... we did have a lot of rain in may... which is why i went ahead and added the other 4lbs without question a couple weeks ago... but now still showing no real movement, i am posing this question on the next 4lbs... :/

    CYA Readings

    guess i should have clarified that part... not my 1st rodeo on this, so i placed in a skimmer sock and hung it in front of the return... - - - Updated - - - i'll also add that the 1st 4lbs was from leslies... the 2nd (thinking there might be an issue with the quality of their CYA) was from...

    CYA Readings

    i have a 17k+ gallon ABG. my CYA reading was 10 at best a couple months ago. according to the pool pal calc, i needed to add a little over 4lbs of CYA to come up to around 50... i did that 2 months ago at the beginning of the season. it hasn't budged. still reading 10 at best, i dumped another...

    In pool, pool chairs/bench idea

    Is there a reason for that? The idea is that us tall people would like to be submerged in the water mostly to shoulder or armpit level (facing inside the pool), without having to hang our arms over the side and (facing the outside of the pool)... So if it's a "weight on the wall" thing, then...
