    pH and TA Balancing

    @ajw22 thank you for lining me out there. I have a local pool store test the water. I’ve been thinking about buying my own kit. Any recommendations? So if I understand it correctly the take away here is that the PH should be the primary target and the TA will follow suit I also wanted to...

    pH and TA Balancing

    Moved from here. @JoyfulNoise greetings Sir, I have a similar situation with my pool chemistry, PH of 8.3 and TA 122. 16,000 gallon pool built 4 months ago. In this particular situation, as I understand it, you recommend bringing down the PH first, and then see where the TA ends up. I guess...

    Plaster thickness

    @sktn77a awesome thank you. With the flanged collars I have will the plasterers be able to get plenty of plaster behind the flange?

    Plaster thickness

    Getting ready to set my 1.5” pipe flange fitting to accommodate microbrite lights. I am wondering how thick the plaster (quartscapes) should be so I can determine how far the flange should protrude. The fitting shown in picture is not glued so pipe can be recut if need be. Thanks in advance

    Pentair microbrite light installation question

    @jalapenopopper thank you. Great intel. Do you have picture of the fittings you got. How far out did they protrude from gunite?

    Pentair microbrite light installation question

    Thanks for sharing your experience so far. Good to know they have inside slip options. I did find some outside slip fittings but thinking I’ll need to cut back the pipe 1/2” inside surface of wall to accommodate, this would allow 3/8” for plaster. I too have some piano wire here and there that...

    Pentair microbrite light installation question

    @jalapenopopper Good morning, did you ever get round to installing the lights, if so, are you able to answer any of your original questions, set back cut, type of fitting, ore or post plaster installation? Do you mind sharing any pictures. Cheers
