    Leak around return jet

    Well I wouldn’t go that far saying it didn’t work 😂. The other possibility is my calcium hardness has been low after replacing some water a while back so maybe some deposits that were slowing the leak got eroded. I’m bringing that up slowly although my CSI has overall been where it should be...

    Leak around return jet

    BTW I am wondering if maybe following the methodology here lead to the issue. I am thinking that maybe this leak existed since the build of the pool and over time the leak slowed due to algae or other buildup through the area. This just became noticeable to me after doing SLAM and keeping my...

    Leak around return jet

    thanks for the comments. I didn’t see the 2nd response before I got the A+B putty and did the cleanest fix I could do. Seems to work like a charm, pool has not lost anything in the last 24 hours. Very happy since I was having nightmares about the possible scenarios with the plumbing.

    What is this cap on my pool deck?

    I have this small cap on my pool deck a couple feet from the edge. I can remove it and it looks like there is water inside about the same depth as my pool. Any idea what this is?

    New to TFP -- having difficulty maintaining FC

    Thanks for the responses. I plan to bump up my cya, but in the meantime I did another SLAM and bumped up my stenner output. Actually the pool is looking amazing even better than when I thought it was good. I’m going to back the Stenner down slowly every couple days until I’m at the high end of...

    New to TFP -- having difficulty maintaining FC

    I've been lurking on this forum for a while. I purchased a home in South Florida with an existing smaller 7.5K gal gunnite pool about 1 year ago and have never owned a pool before. Last summer as a newbie I was trying to maintain the pool with trichlor tablets in a floater. We had some algae...
