    Quartzscapes Reflection Series??

    I have Barbados Blue, but it's the Caribbean series, not Reflection. Shouldn't the base color of the quartz plaster be the same, so Barbados in Caribbean and Barbados in Reflection should be the same, but Reflections just adds something for bling, but I'm not sure what they use though, shells...

    Betraying my TFP with trichlor while on vacation

    Thanks for sharing your experience and results, glad it all worked well for you! My vacation is next week and I'm hoping for very similar results.

    High CYA- possible algae

    You are done when: CC is 0.5 or lower; You pass an OCLT (ie overnight FC loss test shows a loss of 1.0 ppm or less); And the water is clear. When all three are true, you are done SLAMing and can allow the FC to drift down to normal levels. Your current issue is that your CC is still...

    CYA Level Drop in new pool

    I can answer your question for the OP... It is liquid stabilizer (sodium cyanurate) and it is fine to use, it just costs more (about double) than granular stabilizer. Label probably says 35% mono sodium cyanurate monohydrate which is equivalent to 30% cyanuric acid. You can search on here for...

    FC levels continuously low

    Are you testing and adding chlorine to your pool every day? If not, it doesn't look like it from your logs, then that is your problem.

    Betraying my TFP with trichlor while on vacation

    Thanks. I actually do have a solar cover, but I've never left it on for 6 days in the summer before, so that just made me think of a question, is water temperature a concern? My water temp could possibly get close to 100.

    Another newbie needs help

    I used the Taylor K2006 before I switched to TF100, the K2006 has a base & acid demand test and the TF100 does not, I personally like the demand tests. Do you mean that you added 4 drops, not 40, to go from 6.8 to 7.6? The scale on the K2006 is even numbers and lowest is 7.0, each drop...

    Anyone install their own fencing?

    I did just recently, used fence panels from Lowe's. Mine are steel instead of aluminum, but they have the same style in aluminum online. Here's an in progress pic of what I used, hadn't finished cutting the travertine pavers around the post, we put the fence in after the decking...

    Betraying my TFP with trichlor while on vacation

    I feel your pain, I bought my first floater and a small bucket of tabs last week! We are going to be gone for 6 days in a couple of weeks with nobody to manage the pool, so I spent some time on pool math to figure out what I could do to hopefully return to a clear pool. I've intentionally kept...

    Who has ONE IntelliBrite Color LED?

    I have 1 Intellibrite in my pool, pool is around 30ft long, it's not enough light except when on the white setting. I haven't taken pictures of the colored options at night, but they only light up about half the pool, so I'd guess that 1 going across the width is still going to leave a few feet...

    Depth Question

    Another vote for 3.5/5/4, mine is roughly those depths, 3ft is too shallow and I'm only 5'2".

    TA lower while PH still high after using Dry Acid to Lower PH (TA was OK)

    Thanks for the info on the price of RO, but I'm not interested in paying $400 regularly for the treatment. Drain/fill is less than $40 for me, replenishing my CYA, FC and adjusting my PH on a new fill is like $20. I don't know what else would have to be factored in to make the cost similar as...

    Adding Sun Shelf and Changing Stairs

    Where are you located? Prices vary a lot by location. I agree, that change is certainly an option. I just did a renovation on a pool just a little bigger and we changed the steps and sun shelf, sorry my thread is missing some of the pics due to photobucket...Pool Renovation in Henderson NV -...

    Pool Renovation in Henderson NV

    Here's a couple new pics, we are now 5 weeks since completion of the renovation. We only have 1 light, changed it from an old basic light to an Intellibrite 5G LED colored light, here's what it looks like on the white setting. Honestly, it's not very impressive with the other colors and I'm...
