    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Well, I think this will be my last post on this thread. I “opened” the pool to swimming today. My CYA tests crept up to 50 over the last few days, despite the miserable rain we got this weekend. I had Daryl the Dolphin vacuuming the pool nearly constantly for about 4 days. I’d filter all night...

    Maytronics Explorer E30 Dead on Arrival

    I will add that INYO shipped it same day and we got it the following day. I was really happy about that.

    No, my husband ordered it, and he said the deal from INYO was better...because they were having a sale and we needed some other stuff, so we reached the $1000 dollar mark to get $100 off (as TFP supporters.)

    Maytronics Explorer E30 Dead on Arrival

    100% agreement. It was super simple. It’s nice that there’s lots of room in there and no where to lose the screws. Reminded me of working on my 1980’s Buick Regal, minus all the rust and burnt motor oil, and, and...I digress. The only suggestion I’d have is they could pack them a little...

    Maytronics Explorer E30 Dead on Arrival

    I am so glad I found this. I also got this exact same model, yesterday, and was so disappointed today when it wouldn’t run for more than 20 min, and then would just stop. Filter wasn’t full...cord not tangled...it passed the out of water test... I was out in the rain and cold all day, getting...

    ok, good to know. I do not think temp has affected my tests at all then because a) my pool water has consistently been around 70 and b) I do the test indoors, where it is swelteringly warm lately due to said AC failure and c) CYA test is not first so it has time to warm up.

    Aah. ~70F makes more sense than “room temp” which, seemed weird cuz my pool is outside, not in a room. But yeah, ~70 is about what I imagine a glass of water on my counter would be. I read legal docs and mortgages for a living, and battle with attorneys nearly daily about actual definitions vs...

    I thought I read somewhere it was preferable to do the water tests indoors? The lighting is certainly more consistent inside...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    I actually found that my test solution was a little off. It was supposed to be 50ppm and I found it tested at 30. However, I got to see the turbidity, which I wasn’t getting with my pool water. My pool water was just clear every time so I really couldn’t fathom how the dot would disappear. I...

    Yes, I have these. It’s how I learned to do the test bc “till the dot disappears” just didn’t make sense. My water was always clear, no turbidity, so I used the samples and THEN I got it.

    Yes, I did put some in last year, but I figured with the amount that was drained out, and with all the snow melt/rain and the amount I added from the hose, it would be gone.

    I have tested my water twice today (as often as my workday will allow) and my FC has stayed at 12. CYA was 40 both times (in between 30 and 40 actually, but I guess I should round up) so I’m not going to add anymore stabilizer. I think it’s fine, but I’ll keep testing it to make sure it doesn’t...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Ok, I see a question as to how I determined 34k gallons...I figured that out myself based on how many water deliveries we got and gal/min x how many minutes we ran the hose to top it off. It’s a little low right now, so it could be closer to 35k when it’s totally full. (I also have a leak, but...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    I had NO stabilizer in my water at all, because we got the pool completed late in the season last year, and had no pump or filter, so all I added was enough chlorine (based on guidance I got here) to keep it from becoming a swamp. So this season I had to add it, to get the minimum required...
