    Pool Light Keeps Tripping?

    Call an electrician. Just too much going on and too much at risk. Shocked the poop out of you, might shock the life out of granny.

    Flash flooding got me!

    You’re always good for the self-esteem and encouragement @kimkats! Thank you. Dumb question probably but should I be brushing? Part of me imagines if I don’t brush sediment will settle and then I can vac to waste. But if brushing is needed, then brushing I’ll do!

    Flash flooding got me!

    Ph 7.5 FC 10 (I know, I was already relatively high around 15 with a CYA of 80) CC 1 CYA 60 Not too bad. A little embarrassed by my high FC even after the flooding. Had finished SLAMming a couple of weeks ago for some algae (maybe mustard, not sure) and left my SWG at 90% for 12 hrs a day. Now...

    Flash flooding got me!

    Appreciate the encouragement! Interested to see my numbers when I get home from work this evening. Everything was balanced so nicely. I'm wondering how much water turned over? If daylight agrees I'll take some pics this evening and post.

    Flash flooding got me!

    Welp, just popping in to add my “flash flood, creek surge, heavy rain, etc. flooded our inground pool” post. Nothing particularly unique about my situation except it’s a first time for me. And the water was perfect prior to this evening. :-| Looking at other posts, it could’ve been much worse...

    New pool owner

    Not to hijack the thread but @mknauss, you're a pool wizard -- so a question on testing for CYA. If you're actually adding CYA using the sock method, how long after it's dissolved can you test and get an accurate reading? I've added what the TFP pool calc said I'd need to get in SWG range but...

    Debris in Buddy Seats

    Also, "get ideas flowing" is punny.

    Debris in Buddy Seats

    Thanks, @ajw22... I guess that would help! Also just realized I don't have an eye on two of my returns. One of them has never had an "eye" on it... But it's labeled as "hose" on the valves. I think previous owner had a robot vac maybe? Please ignore the mess... the yard... the...

    Quick SLAM question

    Hang in there! It's looking at lot more blue than green! I'm still finding my sea legs with our pool... But if you approach the work like a fun project rather than a pesky chore, it's pretty rewarding to see the progress. Not to mention when you and your family/friends are soaking up the rays...

    Quick SLAM question

    Hang in there Matt! How funky is your current situation and how long have you been at it?

    Debris in Buddy Seats

    Hi everyone! Man, the sun is out here in TN and I think I'm going to take my first (frigid) dip after the mowing the yard this evening! Speaking of mowing, grass clippings and debris... We have a free form, in ground, kinda kidney/lagoon shaped pool. On one side in the deep end we have some...

    Opening a Green Pool - Same Idea as a Clean Pool?

    That first picture in the previous post is right before adding the floc.

    Opening a Green Pool - Same Idea as a Clean Pool?

    Kim makes a good point. So for any curious pool owner who finds this thread some day in the future.... You can't just toss in the flock and cross your fingers. You really need to have patience and plan. Here's how it's working out for me. Late Wednesday Afternoon - Made a slurry with the...

    Opening a Green Pool - Same Idea as a Clean Pool?

    Confession time. After two weeks of rigorous brushing, vacuuming and SLAMming - I flocced using Leslie’s alum. I know I broke the cardinal rule. Please forgive me. On the upside I can now see what the heck was going on in there. I appreciate everyone’s guidance. I think I probably could’ve...

    Opening a Green Pool - Same Idea as a Clean Pool?

    INYO pools article specifically calls out the SP0714T as needing an entirely new assembly. Looks like it’ll run $25. Fortunately I accidentally ordered two gaskets, so by the time I return them I’ll break even. Pool continues to slowly clear. Ready to get the gasket issue resolved so I can add...
