    Minding my CSI, but still scaling in SWG

    That is an interesting theory. I have been running the SWG for 20 hrs/day. Maybe less run time on a higher % would help the scaling? Though one problem I foresee is that I've been in the 'keep the pump running nearly 24/7' camp as a way to promote general pool health & well being. If I...

    Minding my CSI, but still scaling in SWG

    Appreciate all the info! I'm not ready to go with borates just yet, but will try a lower CSI via more acid for the next month or so and see if that helps the SWG scaling.

    Minding my CSI, but still scaling in SWG

    That could be, because my scaling in the SWG seems much worse than the pool.

    Minding my CSI, but still scaling in SWG

    Pat, I've had some slight scaling around the pool, mostly near the skimmers. Which is all the more reason why the SWG scaling seems odd to me. Should I just run an even lower CSI and pH by adding more acid?

    Minding my CSI, but still scaling in SWG

    I have been battling increased scaling this season (our second summer with a new-build pool) despite my attempts to manage the CSI. This is what the SWG looked like in early Sept after cleaning: ...and this is what I have today: This is pretty representative of where I have been...

    White flecks in the water?

    Good info Marty, thanks! :cool:

    White flecks in the water?

    Thanks Marty! I was thinking about opening up the SWG next to see if it might be the culprit. TA had been running more like 90 in the early summer, which I thought was getting too high, so I went for a few weeks with extra muriatic acid dosages to keep the pH intentionally low in the range of...

    White flecks in the water?

    So I've noticed my pool seems to have produced a lot of white flecks over the last couple of weeks. I'd try to include a photo, but I can't seem to get a good image. They are white, feel like maybe salt or calcium, and are size-wise anywhere from the head of a pin up to as large as maybe 3/16"...

    Can anyone help me ID this skimmer basket/sock?

    I think we have a match! Thanks for the info, guys. (y)

    Can anyone help me ID this skimmer basket/sock?

    I've been looking for a source to get more of these skimmer baskets and socks for my pool, but it is proving elusive. PB has been little/no help, and all the web searches I've done still don't seem to come up with an exact match. PB used almost exclusively Pentair products in the design, but I...

    IC40 SWG not on during EasyTouch 'Clean' Cycle?

    It's all good, Dan! Thanks for your inputs. :cool:

    IC40 SWG not on during EasyTouch 'Clean' Cycle?

    Thanks for sharing your pool schedules, Dan! Some good techniques there that I may replicate. (y)

    IC40 SWG not on during EasyTouch 'Clean' Cycle?

    Jim, I think you may have nailed my problem exactly! Currently, there are a couple hours of inactivity between my pool and clean cycles. I'll re-arrange the pool and clean cycles and see if that does the trick. Thanks! I do have ScreenLogic on our Mac & iphones, but I still feel like there...

    IC40 SWG not on during EasyTouch 'Clean' Cycle?

    In my second Spring with our pool, and since the SWG has 'woke up' with the warmer temps, I am noticing it only seems to be operating during the pool's normal 'on' cycle (lower pump flow). For the portion of the day that I have set for 'clean' cycle (higher pump flow), the SWG lights are all...
