    Sanitization, water dropping, wack-o levels

    Hi all, Used to be a pool owner, moved to a new home and now have a hot tub here from previous owner. It is a 350 gal 2005 Dimension One Spa which I don't even think is made any more. We had some of the hoses replaced last year, but others are still leaking. We add about 6-8 gal water every day...

    Chemical # question-new to hot tubs

    I will update you with this response. We drained, cleaned and are re-filling the hot tub as I write this post. As soon as it is up and has run for a bit, I'll take another sample and post a new set of numbers. Thanks for the help.

    Is it SUMMER Time yet?!!!!!!

    It can be summer any time now. I am sick of the winter but jobs and bills and all of that other stuff we working stiffs have to contend with get in the way of moving to warmer climates and having time to do other fun stuff wherever we want. I, for one, am READY to be warm again.

    So I Was At Walmart Today

    Re: So I Was Alt Walmart Today Nice job :goodjob: Lets hope he decides to take your advice. Best thing I ever DID was join this group and learn all about my water and such. I recommend TFP every chance I get. Some still won't jump in, though and continue to be Pool Stored. You can lead a...

    Hot tub in hotel

    The hot tub in the hotel at which we are staying has foaming bubbles on the water when the water is churning at any speed. The high speed has a TON of bubbles and foam. Is this normal or should we stay OUT?

    About finished with drainging the water off pool cover

    Unless you fill your pool with trucked in water how else would you fill it? I used our regular garden hose and the water was just fine. Are there any extenuating circumstances that would prohibit the use of your hose?
