    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'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?

    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...

    Need to raise TA

    Thanks for starting this thread, Rob. I'm in about the same shape pool-wise, except my TA is at 50 and I had been wondering if I should be raising it, too.

    Cartridge Cleaning

    I have heard that misting the filters with Simple Green for 10-15 min can loosen up a lot of the gunk. Good idea or not?

    In-floor cleaning system inlet is clogging up

    LOL! Yes, I think a series of MANY free-dives will be what it takes to get the job done.

    In-floor cleaning system inlet is clogging up

    Okay, here's a photo of the return. There's some distortion in the photo, obviously, but the inlet is roughly 6" by maybe 28." Next is the normal valve configuration I have been using: Lastly is a photo of the return during construction. Best I have been able to tell, the grate is...

    In-floor cleaning system inlet is clogging up

    Swimming around in the deep end the other day, I put my hand over the inlet grate for the in-floor cleaner and noticed it had virtually no suction. Donned some goggles and went down for a closer look. There appears to be quite a bit of DG rock accumulated down there (and who knows what else)...
