    Pool Math - notes on results feature request

    It would be great if when entering in test results that were a notes field as well so that we don’t have to create two “separate entries” when really the notes are directly associated with the test results.

    Pool math - support custom ranges?

    Thanks all! @Leebo , glad to hear it's at least on the list. Good luck this year!

    Pool math - support custom ranges?

    First off, I love the app! I have an indoor pool though and some of the recommended ranges are outside where it seems to be really recommended: Chlorine too high - SWG, indoor pool It would be great if either the app had an “indoor” setting, or let us save custom ranges for each measurement...

    Chlorine too high - SWG, indoor pool

    @Flying Tivo, @ajw22 Great feedback, thanks! I was going to wait until next years opening (although an indoor pool - it's enclosure isn't ideal for winter), then as CYA drops I'll let it settle in around 30 and target 5 FC. When does CC become an issue? My CC is currently at around 0.5 (the...

    Chlorine too high - SWG, indoor pool

    Hey all (and I suppose I should at least try to page @chem geek ) 20k gal SWG, indoor pool. My last test results (TF-100): FC 12.5 CC 0.5 pH 7.2 TA 200 CH 300 CYA 65 SALT 3600 TEMP 79F With that out of the way, the FC had shot up from 5.0 to 12.5 after a few weeks of not being used, but with...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    Video of the bubbles here: solar-bubbles.mp4 Excuse the dirt and stains here - the pool is very old, and the heater has started dumping some rust out recently. After 6 hours running today we have about a 2°F rise in temp. It's been cloudy the later part of the day. On a sunny day I'd expect...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    I see the bubbles when the VRV activates (lots of air at first of course), but while running I see some very small bubbles still. When it first started up I noticed it more, but even after running a while I'm seem a few of them popping out. I'll try to get a video of them for reference...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    I don't think my 3 way valve has the pins... It does "click" as you turn it though, so I suppose I could probably figure it out that way if I pay attention. We'll see once I measure the pressure at the panels.

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    Thanks for the replies! We got everything put up there this weekend. Photo attached here. I have a few more things to do finish securing it, but it's largely done. Ignore the water in the photo. The supply line wasn't welded for some reason so it blew open as soon as I turned it on to test...

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Thanks all! Raypak has confirmed they think it's from the header as well, but also that it's not worth repairing (due to the age and what else could be going on in it) and we'd be better off replacing it. We'll add that to the list :)

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Yep... Magnet sticks to the block. Also, the magnet picks up most of the flakes.

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Contacted Raypak to see if they have any recommendations, hopefully short of replacing the whole unit. If it's the heat exchanger it almost seems like it'd be worth it to replace the whole unit, as that looks to cost about $1200 + install cost - and who knows about the rest of it. I haven't...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    Hi all... The previous homeowner had 4 "SunHeater" 2' x 20' panels they left behind, but not hooked up. The system is plumbed for them, so I figured I'd try getting them going again. I did a quick test with a garden hose to see if they were leaking, and the water was going through them without...

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Unfortunately there is no bypass for the heater. Not sure how exactly the metal pipes from the heater are connected to the PVC, it looks threaded in the photos, but who knows if it's cemented/otherwise permanently attached. If it were easy enough to disconnect I could put a temporary connection...
