    Little Bugs in Pool

    Hi, We have got thousands of these little tiny bugs in our pool. They seem to grow in the stagnating water between the pool cover and the liner, but they show up overnight. In otherwards not there one day and suddenly thousands there the next day. I originally mistook these for pollen...

    UltraTemp Heat Pump short cycles

    I believe the issue is of no hysteresis. When a heater is cycling every couple of minutes, I do not think this is intended behavior. I can watch the temperature on the easytouch display move between my setpoint and 1 degree less, then back to my setpoint in the span of two minutes, with...

    UltraTemp Heat Pump short cycles

    I should note, I am using RS 485 to an screenlogic interface, but not to the heater.

    UltraTemp Heat Pump short cycles

    Moved from here .. Pentair UltraTemp Heat Pump short cycles when using RS485 remote setting Has anyone with a newer Easytouch seen a similar problem? As my pool comes up to temperature, it will cycle on and and off for hours. The easytouch is sending the command, not a heater issue. I have...

    Easytouch, heater delay

    The issue is that the water temperature in the pool is above the set point, but the water temperature in the pipes (which hasn't had water flowing through them for 8 hours) is lower than the set point because water has not been flowing because the pump is off at night. As soon as the pump...

    Easytouch, heater delay

    I am using the easy touch system and I have programmed it to start up at 7:00AM every morning, with heat command set to heater. Every morning, the water temperature at the sensor (at the pad) is much colder than the actual water temperature in the pool as it the air temperature obviously acts...

    How much Chlorine do I need per day.

    The last 4 days my chlorine production has been keeping up. I did remove all the tree matter from skimmer and pump baskets but I can't believe there was enough to eat up all my chlorine. Maybe there was just a little too much other stuff in the water and I finally got over the hump to kill it...

    How much Chlorine do I need per day.

    As an update, after I removed all the organic residue from my skimmer and pump baskets, I have been consistently keeping my chlorine level in range, maybe even increasing a little. Currently running at 70% for 16 hours. I don't know if it was the organic matter (tree stuff) or if I just...

    How much Chlorine do I need per day.

    I have the SWG going now. I do not have liquid chlorine, only granules. I am sure I can find liquid somewhere.

    How much Chlorine do I need per day.

    3 weeks to a month before it jumps the border. Pool opened first time last year in mid September. Never had high chlorine before closing, but didn't turn on the SWG last year. Maybe I should shock it, but don't have ability to slam recommended way till I have test kit. Should I just do a...

    How much Chlorine do I need per day.

    I suspect you can understand my confusion. Intellichlor used to have 60-80 ppm in their manual, but recently has been reduced to 30-50. I am going to cross fingers test kits comes soon.

    How much Chlorine do I need per day.

    I am looking back over my chemical report from the pool store after reading some basic pool school docs. My Stabilizer is only 37 ppm (which is within target range on the sheet). I assume this could be a problem.

    How much Chlorine do I need per day.

    I have a test kit on route. I ordered 3 weeks ago but I am in Canada and have to wait for it to cross the border. I got the T-100. My water is crystal clear. Can algae be clear?
