    Can't tell if my chlorine tester is bad?

    Seems odd. It's been 115 F in AZ all week and the chlorine level is not down. If no smell, is it safe for kids to swim?

    Can't tell if my chlorine tester is bad?

    Thank you. My smell is gone. I've used this test for several years and it would show some shade of yellow. Now all red. Is the water still over chlorinated.

    Can't tell if my chlorine tester is bad?

    Pump Keeps Re-Priming

    I checked the water level and skimmer. No issues. Water level is fine. Every time the pump starts each night, it reprimes and massive amounts of air comes out of in-floor cleaning. Usually, I only see this massive amount of air when I open the system to clean filters. Also, there are no...

    Pump Keeps Re-Priming

    Thanks Jim. I will check it out. The priming action used to only happen when I would let air into the system from cleaning the filters. So it was a new behavior..

    Pump Keeps Re-Priming

    Every time I turn on my pump, it is re-priming. The pool water level is fine. I don't see any plumbing leaks. Air is getting in the system as the floor cleaning heads shoot out air bubbles until it clears.
