    Speed Stir Question?

    What is the reason that some of you are using one vial specific to FC and another one for the rest? Why not using one vial for all??

    I am in a similar situation than you about going to vacation and I am asking the same thing at the moment. I also have a similar chlorinator. My plan was to put 3 pucks in the chlorinator and setting it around the middle and to bring FC to SLAM level with liquid chlorine. I am still debating...

    Pool closing strategy

    Based on my experience of the last 5 five years, by closing the pool at the beginning of November and opening early at spring I never had to add chlorine or anything else in the pool after closing. That was with the Costco closing kit. With the TFP recommendations, I suppose it will be the same...

    Pool closing strategy

    OK. Thanks. So chlorine to shock level and polyquat algaecide after draining. That's it? Nothing else on chemical side? To satisfy my curiosity, do you know exactly what is found in the closing kit that are sold in stores then? Often there is like a floating device and a gallon of unidentified...

    Pool closing strategy

    Hello, The pool season is still on and I am happy with my TFP pool but I want to plan in advance. It sucks but with my location I will need to eventually close the pool for winter. Even if we don't swim, I always close the pool by end of October or beginning of November because water stays...

    WaterGuru - A Test

    I agree. To be really useful it should display a numerical value so we know what is going on. Keep us posted. Thanks a lot.

    I agree with the API idea. You mean that it works somewhere as a dosing system? That means more hardware.

    WaterGuru - A Test

    It works for a certain number of tests? I was under the impression that the cassette itself had a duration which seems to be 2 months but that during this period you could do an unlimited number of tests?

    Daily loss of chlorine

    During the weekend we got 2 beautiful days. Really hot hot hot and full sun. We used the pool a lot. I have a pool cover but I left the cover off for the weekend. By doing tests this weekend, I noticed that I lost 4ppm of FC each day. That requires me to use a lot of liquid chlorine at each...

    Clorox temporarily?

    Does it says Cloromax technology on it? If yes I would not use it. The label of Clorox bleach usually says it contains Cloromax Technology which is polymers that are not suitable for pools. It is a fabric protection additive and is not to be used in pools.
