    Jandy Filter Normal Pressure: Different this year than past?

The only thing difference I can think of is a new drain cap that was installed (i noticed the old one had...

    CC Level seems to be "stuck" at 0.5

    thanks Dave. imagine how screwed up most peoples pools probably are relying upon pool store testing. makes me want to bring my own kit when we go to friend pools to test and determine if it is safe to go in:)
