    Pool Math Log Enhancement\Suggestion

    Hi again, I finally got my SWG setup and running and I updated my Pool Math app with the settings and then I noticed something. When I added the amount for the SWG in the “Chemical Additions”, it shows the results in the Log, the exact way I was suggesting it, it shows what the addition was...

    Adding Unions to Sand Filter and Filter Maintenance

    Apologies for all the posts, but as you can tell, I’m continuously reading as much as I can. If the Sand Filter uses 1.5 inch piping, then I saw the below 2 union options from other posts: https://www.mypoolyard.com/product_info.php/cmp-mip-pvc-temp-union-21063-150-000-p-4815...

    Adding Unions to Sand Filter and Filter Maintenance

    Might be overkill but now thinking of just buying this (Amazon.com: Hayward SP0714T VariFlo Top-Mount Control Value, Black: Garden & Outdoor) since I assume it would come with everything (new spider gasket and o-ring) and then just order 3 of those unions I linked above (if they are...

    Adding Unions to Sand Filter and Filter Maintenance

    Greetings TFPer’s, hope everyone is doing great this summer day and everyone's pool is crystal clear and balanced. It’s amazing what a new liner will do in terms of wanting to make everything else new and I once again need everyone’s expertise on a few things and I truly appreciate the help...

    Pool Math Log Enhancement\Suggestion

    Thanks for the reply and suggestion. That’s what I’ve been doing in the interim or just opening the Effects of Adding section. I get the reasons for wanting to leave the logs with “real” data but perhaps there could be an option in the settings to allow the expected Effects to be shown and...

    Pool Math Log Enhancement\Suggestion

    Greetings fellow TFP’ers, been a while since I posted but still here. I’m loving the Pool Math app, finally subscribed to it vs. just using the free version and the html version but just had one small suggestion that would help me, and possibly others, out tremendously. When you view the Logs...

    How high can the TFTeskits test for FC?

    Thanks Jason, I'll mention to him again about the pH.

    SimplePool App for Android. A Review.

    Hey Ken, The only new thing I found is that there is a limit on the FC...you can only enter up to 80....and I know you're probably like who in the world would go any higher than that...well finally got my Dad to go to the BBB method and his CYA is around 180 so he insisted he didn't want to...

    How high can the TFTeskits test for FC?

    Thanks everyone, Well he finally hit the shock point so thanks to all the help and instructions everyone gave me as well as the great TFTeskit, this morning he had dead algae everywhere, he was soooo shocked and couldn't believe it worked and they were so thankful which made me happy that I was...

    How high can the TFTeskits test for FC?

    Greetings TFP'ers, hope all is well with everyone tonight. Well good news bad news situation. Good news is I finally convinced my father to go the BBB / Troublefree method...Bad news is his CYA is around 180 and his FC was only 2.0 and his pool is getting really cloudy (basically he got a new...

    Algae or Just Pollen and or Dirt?

    Well I finally removed my LED light and OMG you wouldn't believe all the Crud that came floating out and the sliminess that was all over the wires and inside. So I once again began the shock process but this time only went up to the regular shock of 21 vs. the mustard (currently at 50 CYA) and...

    Algae or Just Pollen and or Dirt?

    Same here on OCLT results. I'm not sure if any FC loss means organics but know that they say to pass that it just can't be anymore than a 1 FC loss. I'm gonna check behind my light and got a suggestion to bring my FC up to shock level just in case there's algae to make sure I don't lose much FC.

    Removing an LED Ungrounded Light?

    Thanks soooo much for the help and will do on bringing it up to shock level. Just glad nothing special needs to be done. Other than the light, I took the ladder out a while ago as that was the only other hiding place.

    Algae or Just Pollen and or Dirt?

    Sounds good, and I went ahead and backwashed tonight even though my pressure has hardly moved since last time but figured I'd try it out and see and I also might get my Polaris set back up to help with brushing via it's tail but it was sooo much easier to just use my leaf eater to do the same...

    Algae or Just Pollen and or Dirt?

    No worries and the more the merrier...when you brush yours does it go away into like a dust cloud? We had a lot of rain and wind here lately so I'm wondering if it mine just isn't debris, dirt, dust and pollen mixed together? I get dirt and that's easy enough to see but mine has a slight...
