    pH stuck at 7.5

    FC=3.5 CC=0 pH=7.5 TA=130 CH=225 CYA=0 Salt=3200 Temp=86 So numbers were worse a few days ago, with pH at 8.4. I concentrated on pH 1st and got it down to 7.5, but that is as far down as it will go. Pool Math says to get pH to 7.0-7.2 to lower my TA to the goal of 70. What should I do? Today...

    Waterfall - dimmer switch

    My current motor on my waterfall (A.O. Smith Model: B128 / 1HP / 1.25 SF) died. That pump was great for when the waterfall was on during the day with all the kids in the pool, but at night we wished we would have more of a sedated flow (which would equal less noise - think a babbling brook). My...

    Leaves, leaves, leaves

    I agree that leaves shouldn't be getting to my cell, but it has been an issue since we switched to a SWG. Pictures attached as requested.

    Leaves, leaves, leaves

    I don't know if I'm having equipment failure or what, but I continuously get leaves clogging up my salt cell. I could clean my cell multiple times a day! It seems my skimmers are doing their job, but obviously enough is getting by. Filter in the pump normally only is about 1/4 full. The...

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Working! Thanks a ton guys. Only thing different in your advice is that I had to leave it at AL-0 for the AquaRite / AquaLink connection.

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Not yet...that's the goal. I used to be able to and somewhere along the line it got disconnected. I didn't install it in the first place & couldn't find an actual installation manual...so...I'm asking here.

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    There is something in the RS485 on the Jandy side that is Yellow. The wire coming out of the Aquarite is White.

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Thanks! I'm not positive on the corrosion. Both boxes are outside on the side of my house. Maybe it was left open....don't have a clue. Should I clean it? How?

    Hayward AquaRite info not showing on AquaLink RS All Button

    Never late than never? Sorry...had lots of stuff wrong with the pool that had to get fixed before this. All done and now on back on this issue. I re-read all the post and sure appreciate it. I'm just confirming (w/ pictures) where I'm going to connect my Aquarite SWG AFTER I do the following...

    Aquarite Desired Output %

    The knob is maxed out at 100 while the display board is only showing 15. I just looked it up and actually replaced both main board and display in March 2017. Here is the exact Display PCB I purchased --> Amazon.com: Hayward GLX-PCB-DSP Aqua-Rite PCB Display: Garden & Outdoor . Looks legit...

    Aquarite Desired Output %

    I have an older Goldline SWG controller. I've replaced the main board a few times. The last time was a few years ago. I did replace the display board last year. Long story, but had the pool turned off for quite a while and basically started over with a refill. Pool has been great and I'm...

    Pressure gauge connection repair

    This just might not be possible now, but my pressure gauge stripped the internal threads of the filter. I don't want to (& couldn't afford) a new filter, so the only way I could fix it (before I found this forum) was to basically fill and glue it shut. I used liquid nails and a beer cap! That's...

    Landscaping redo / Plant recommendations

    First, this pool is located near Houston, TX. Hope that helps with the recommendations! Attached are pictures of my landscaping around the pool and it's out of hand! I'd like to either redo or managed this better. Not sure about the names of most of these plants, but know they drop Crud in my...
