    Replaster progress pics

    Looks great! My pool is only one month old and brushed twice a day and used the manual vacuum to get the larger pieces of plaster dust out. Did you start up guy put in a metal sequestering agent? If you're unsure, ask...and if not, you should add some to help prevent metal stains on that...

    How long to wait to get in pool after adding liquid chlorine?

    So I'm on my 4th day of converting from Trichlor pucks to liquid chlorine. Was wondering if there is a recommendation on how long one should wait to enter the water after adding my daily dose of liquid chlorine. So far, I've been adding at 6am when I got off night shift so it hasn't been an...

    Switching from Triclor Pucks to Liquid Chlorine and now have green looking water in my inline chlorinator

    Yes using the metal sequestrant Magic Jacks....our water has small amounts of manganese, lead, and copper according to the city's water report. Probably has iron too but was not mentioned in report....I had a couple of small rust looking color spots that I figured were from iron....I used a vit...

    Switching from Triclor Pucks to Liquid Chlorine and now have green looking water in my inline chlorinator

    Ok so it's been 3 days since I started making the switch from Triclor pucks in my inline chlorinator to 10% liquid chlorine. My goal was to try and reduce my inline chlorinator setting to 1.5 (0 is no flow and 5 is highest flow) to keep just a little stablizer going into the pool but to get...
