    What did you do to your pool today?

    Ran the robot and admired how clean and sparkly the water is! I’m in Indiana, heater is off and all the pool toys were put away 2 weeks ago. No trees. Just time to enjoy it till we close it down at the end of Oct/early Nov.

    CYA is 0 - Pool service says it's okay and left it at that.

    No. It does not monitor FC levels. You will monitor them with your test kit. You will start by adding the stabilizer into the pool via the sock method. Then adjust your chlorine with liquid chlorine to hit your target. If CYA is 70, your target FC is 5. Then adjust the output of your SWCG to...

    CYA is 0 - Pool service says it's okay and left it at that.

    Your FC can be anything if your salt cell is generating chlorine, that won’t indicate the presence of cya. It’s just working harder to continually generate chlorine, thus shortening the life of the cell, because there is no CYA to protect the chlorinee from UV burn off. For a saltwater pool add...

    Salt level in a chlorine pool

    Do chlorine pucks also contain some salt? “For every 10 ppm Free Chlorine (FC) in chlorinating liquid or bleach, there is also around 8-9 ppm salt. When the chlorine gets used/consumed, there is another 8-9 ppm salt for a total of 17 ppm salt. ALL sources of chlorine result in salt, but...

    Salt level in a chlorine pool

    I read on here a lot that even chlorine pools have some salt in them. Can someone explain where the salt comes from? I’m sure it’s a breakdown from the basic chems we add, like liquid chlorine, but I’m interested in the what’s and how’s so I can explain it to someone else. Thanks!

    Chlorine Pucks in Skimmer = Disaster

    Or their very own pool builder! Now he can replace the liner, the skimmer plate, skimmer basket and the guts of the heater! It’s a win win for him!

    Chlorine Pucks in Skimmer = Disaster

    Found this picture on a group page. Poster was asking how this happened to her liner. Chlorine Pucks kept in a skimmer basket is my guess as well as not maintaining PH. Was so blown away by this photo I just had to share!

    White powder in pool

    I have a sand filter with a multi-port valve so for me I just set the valve to waste, with my vacuum line in the skimmer box it pulls the water from the hose and discharges it to the ground bypassing the filter. I don’t have experience with other types of filters, but found this article that...

    White powder in pool

    Vacuum it to waste instead of letting it go into your filter.
