    Dog potty area ideas?

    I left some grass for the dog. It’s extra work but I guess that’s the price for having a pet. Anything else will stink overtime without watering and cleaning.

    What you all think of the plaster job?

    Are the leaves in there or just the imprint? I have one tiny Italian Cypress needle imprint in my plaster. Only I can notice it but I keep getting mad when I see it. Just can’t seem to remember to fix it. I don’t want to call the PB for a speck.

    Muriatic Acid Use

    This strength isn’t available in all areas. I have to get the strong stuff in the next county over. Our county only sells 14.5%

    input on a good cordless bluetooth speaker

    I got the Kicker Bullfrog recently. Sounds good and good battery life. It looks like a cheese grader is the only con. My JBL had battery issues and finally died completely after a couple years.

    Type of plaster to choose?

    I asked our builder about Diamond Brite and he said it’s a waste of money but we’ll do it if you want. I passed on it and just went with white standard plaster. Only 9 months old but looks good.

    Battling small amount of algae

    They do disappear instantly with a quick brushing. Even my hand can remove it easily. I just sort of panic at the first sight of any issues with a new pool. I’ll just have to step up my brushing. The worst of the heat for the year will be over soon too. Earlier in the summer I didn’t have this...

    Battling small amount of algae

    I am thinking the same thing. It is in areas sort of off to the side of return Jets and it has been 100 degrees so the shallow water must be pretty hot. I’ll up the pump times some until the heat passes. So it is possible for algae to grow even with correct levels with poor circulation/covered...

    Battling small amount of algae

    I just tested today after brushing and the filter running about 20-30min. That’s when I got FC 9ppm and CYA 40. Tested CYA about 5 times to make sure it was 40. Started to disappear at 50 but could still see it.

    Battling small amount of algae

    I have been having this problem for a month or so. I get small patches of algae on the walls once in a while. Today it has been hot with the solar cover on and when I took it off I had a couple spots. One on the shallow wall by the sun shelf and some on the wall by the shallow spa step. All test...

    Chemicals all in range, small green patch on wall

    Forgot to mention, the water isn’t cloudy. We have had cloudy weather lately and in the photo it makes it look kind of off.

    Chemicals all in range, small green patch on wall

    I took my solar cover off this morning to check chemicals and brush and was disappointed to see a green spot on the small 10” deep section of pool wall on the shelf. It was bright green and maybe 3”x10”. It immediately came off with one swipe of the brush. I checked chemicals and all are in...
