    Pool Light Repair

    I put light back in pool without taking a picture of it but I did take pictures of the labels on it which is why I think the light is a Jandy, The label says to use 8 replacment bulbs with a Jandy P/N of RO399600. Also says to replace gasket with P/N R0399800.

    Thanks all for your replies and inputs. Since I use a sock over my skimmer basket I decided to put the CYA in the basket and it seemed to work well. I am going to adjust my CYA to 70

    CYA question

    Thanks for the input on how to add the CYA to the pool. Now I am trying to figure out the best level for my pool. The charts say minimum of 70 for a SWG pool but I worry that is to high as it makes it very difficult to resolve an algae problem if you get one. I am think somewhere in the range of...
