    Plugs for old cleaner in pool

    I found some 1.5 inch "plugs" at Home depot that should work. Not attractive but I don't care.

    Plugs for old cleaner in pool

    I have switched over to a robot cleaner and no longer use the ray-vac. However, there is still the return line the ray-vac plugged in to located in the side of the pool. Is there a universal cap I can buy or is it model specific?

    Post SLAM tests and questions

    Results this morning put my CSI at .11. Water temp is 80. My goal right now is to get my TA down. (and now I'm leaving for 4 days and my wife is running things, please pray)

    Post SLAM tests and questions

    Thanks. Going to work on it once the rain stops. What product (calcium chloride) do you add? I see home depot "pool time" sells a product but didn't know if there was something else I should be using.

    Post SLAM tests and questions

    I've 2-3 days off my SLAM, here are the results this morning: FC 4.5 CC 0.0 pH 7.6 TA 170 CH 280 CYA 35 (estimated bw 30 and 40). Per the app I need to lower my ph and that will lower my TA. App also wants me to add Calcium Chloride (16 lbs) to raise my CH. Do I get my TA and pH stabilized...

    Need Help

    Stick with it and listen to the pros here. We had to drain 80% of our pool due to our CYA being off the charts. We then did the SLAM and it took almost two weeks but my numbers are starting to get back to normal (pre-draining the pool).

    Looks like I’m finally done with the OCLT. I did the test two nights in a row to make sure. Now I’m going to let the FC drop to normal range and begin getting the other numbers in check.

    Just tested, did it three times...Varied from 9.5-11.5 (9.5, 11,11.5). Will test before the sun comes up. I did not add any cholrine. And I'm using R-0870 powder with R-0871 titrating liquid.

    I am on Day 9 of my SLAM and was going to to the OCLT tonight. My pool is crystal clear and my CC is 0.0; so per the SLAM page I just need to have a good OCLT and I can stop the SLAM process.

    I thought the goal of the OCLT test was to have a set number at dusk, and you want that number to match in the morning? So what I have been doing on my last test of the day, get my FC (at dusk) and then add to get back to 16 FC. (But I have not been testing to ensure I am hitting 16). Just...
