    How many drops pentair rainbow test kit for chlorine

    I have a rainbow pentair water test kit that didn't come with instructions from my pool builder. All the bottles say how many drops to use except the chlorine one. Is it 5 or 1? Or something else I guess. Thanks

    Unable to connect to pentair screen logic remotely this past week

    About the last week I've been unable to connect to my pentair screen logic system when I'm away from my home. I checked the password and it is correct and I tried without a password just to be sure. I also tried removing and re-adding the system to the app. I am able to connect if I'm local on...

    Basketball goal installation question

    My pool builder included a couple of umbrella sleeves and one of them is in a great place to put a single pole basketball hoop. Does anyone know if those fit nicely into an umbrella sleeve or does it require a different drilled hole? The follow-on question would be if I have to drill another...

    New pool - builder still controlling water levels - weird?

    That list has looked pretty much the same since late December. I guess my only fear was that they would try to void the warranty. Why do you not suggest starting to use the chlorine tablet chlorinator yet? They have been against it as well for some reason I don't understand.

    New pool - builder still controlling water levels - weird?

    I admit some of this is easy, but I want a finished product worth the 100k I paid... - Ordering ledge lounger products (reduced cost). They were going to get me a shipping price so that I could see if it was even a savings. - Repair cracked and broken coping by tanning ledge. A small crack...

    New pool - builder still controlling water levels - weird?

    The problem is they haven't finished yet! Its been a very disappointing process. I went with a smaller company recommended by a friend because they had a good experience. Very personable. Problem seems to be that the rush of pools being built during covid last year, this company took on more...

    New pool - builder still controlling water levels - weird?

    My pool has had water since mid-December. It's now mid-March. I've asked a couple of times if they want me to start adjusting the levels and adding chlorine and they have said "no. Not until they finish and I have completed pool school". So for these 3 months, they have done nothing but let...

    Polaris pressure cleaner question

    I replaced the float. 7 bucks. Seems to be behaving better now. Thanks.

    Polaris pressure cleaner question

    Regarding the white float bulb on the back of the vacuum should it be empty and hollow or when I shake it should there be some water inside? My unit is pretty much brand new but when I shake it it seems already half filled with water somehow. Thanks, Jonathan

    Yet another hot tub draining thread...

    Hi all, This is a great resource. Glad I found it! Anyway, just moved into a new house and noticed that the hot tub drains to pool level every night when the pumps rest. I have seen a lot of threads here and elsewhere with ideas. I don't think I have a check valve installed at all. Before...
