    So we change our filters out every 3 months. We get them from the spa store, I think the name is. They are supposed to be antibacterial. We are draining the tub bc we are going out of town. My husband took the filters out and he saw this. I am so grossed out. Have you ever seen this before...

    The algae is BACK

    mustard algae? we slammed back in June and we took out our lights and ran our wall until our numbers came back out. I have never looked at mustard. The algae is back on the outside of our lights. it's alwasy there when it shows up. we literally soaked the lights in beach for a very long time.

    The algae is BACK

    I cannot freakin believe it! The chlorine has not dropped - the lowest it has been was a 3 and that was for half a day! We have been keeping it at 5 or 6. I have a log where we have been testing this darn pool every day or every other day since the great algae incident of 2020. It’s all over...

    New cell - went from 20k cell to 40k

    Okay, y’all, here’s what I am having trouble wrapping my head around. Our previous SWG was a 20k unit that we had no problem with until we had a problem. So now we have a 40k and yet we can’t get the FC stable. I went out there just now and it’s down to a 3. I just added CL to make it go to...

    New cell - went from 20k cell to 40k

    No. 12 hours. That is what our pool person set up - 9-4 the rpm is higher. So he has it set at 1875 7 to 7 and 2500 9-4. Sorry didn’t see this post before I posted the other.

    New cell - went from 20k cell to 40k

    Good to know. We have been checking it every day or every other day bc we didn’t want to go down the algae road again...

    New cell - went from 20k cell to 40k

    Today our chlorine was down by 2ppm. It’s going down every day. We are trying to find that sweet spot. I find algae unlikely as we have been on top of the FC since we got rid of it last month..didn’t want to go down that road again!

    New cell - went from 20k cell to 40k

    Hi there. So our cell wasn’t producing at 100% so we replaced it with a 40k. My husband read all the instructions, plus some from the internet. It’s like a plug and play cell - for an AquaRite system. Anyway, my question is: Should a brand-new cell have to be run at 60%? We have been...
