    What is this? Translucent scales on surface

    Doesn’t look like anything I have around me. Ugh. So nothing I can do about it for now. My skimmers don’t seem to do a great job of pulling it in, even running 24/7 and the net just passes through it

    What is this? Translucent scales on surface

    Finally got a good photo. This stuff is driving me nuts. Any idea what I am dealing with here? Something related to pool chemistry or organic material? And how do I get rid of it?? Thanks

    Balancing Check In

    Will do What’s the best way to add calcium chloride? I’ve added smaller amounts by just casting and brushing, but this is going to be a good deal more than that.

    Thoughts on upping CYA and CH? FC levels are good now

    Balancing Check In

    Yeah that’s about right. Nothing more drastic than that I guess. I’m very new to pool ownership so wasn’t sure if it was unusual to be going through that much liquid chlorine but what I’m seeing lines up with that. Will be ordering that SWG today

    CSI is -0.05 Getting more liquid chlorine this morning. Should I get my CYA levels up as well though? Like I said, it’s below 30 for sure and any sun seems to eat through the FC.

    green pool

    Im a newbie here but I believe the instructions are to get good test kit and not rely on Leslie’s, and follow SLAM process. Also I don’t know what kind of robot you have but mine wouldn’t be all that useful getting tons of organic matter off the bottom of the pool. I think you’d want to skim or...

    Balancing Check In

    Been use PoolMath app, attached my current numbers. Even at the 30 mark on the CYA test the dot is faintly visible so I think I’m even lower there. It does seem like any sunlight eats up my FC pretty quick but pool looks great otherwise. I have been using liquid chlorine to raise FC normally...

    DE returning to pool

    Whelp after I replaced one of the valves, the MPV, the manifold, grids and the o-rings, I went back to the filter and found that the manifold wasn't all the way on the stand pipe. Which is odd because that's how it was when they opened it, and then I must have repeated it when I replaced them...

    Made the mistake of trying to remove spider gasket

    Thank you. I'm tracking the FC/CC levels closely. And I got the pump up and running anyway so I have some piece of mind. Now I've gotta figure out this leak issue

    Made the mistake of trying to remove spider gasket

    Thanks. Of course we got a big storm last night which knocked a ton of junk into the pool. Skimmed all that out and I'm running the 'bot. Pollen is also crazy here right now, so that's my biggest concern as I can't really skim that out.
