    White Plastic Fittings Turning Yellow

    Yeah, I agree. I know their salt , while being very fine and dissolves quickly has been known to leave stains. I have used their CYA in the past, and it works fine. I would’ve thought this stuff would be straight forward, but apparently not. Enjoy your day LS

    White Plastic Fittings Turning Yellow

    Alright ! AJW. You nailed it. (Mostly) a lot of the staining On the eyeball fitting wiped away instantaneously. Some of the threads on the eyeball ring didn’t , but I’d say it worked for the most part. It’s curious that this Clorox off the self stuff did absolutely nothing. Also worth noting...

    Brand new fill - Sequence ?

    Long Island tap water. Excellent water, very drinkable. But you’re saying SLAM not necessary ? Think I can get away with a simply shooting for nominal chlorine of 3-6? Never thought of that.

    I'm helping out my nephew with his new Intex 16x36x52" above ground vinyl pool. He will have a SWG. I'm ready for him to SLAM as soon as filled, but I am thinking this is what I am going to recommend. As soon as he has filled a foot or so of water, I am going to put a few socks with CYA in a...

    Stabilizer/Cynauric Acid slow dissolve problem... Used granules instead of liquid....

    used my spare skimmer basket with a hairnet in it. Sat the basket on the steps about 12 inches in front of a return jet - directed right at the side of the basket. As John Madden would say... "BOOOM!"

    CYA loss over the winter

    Thanks for your quick reply. I'm hoping it's not ammonia, but with the water looking great and my CYA climbing back to nominal, I'm figuring another SLAM will cure everything. (usually does). thanks again

    CYA loss over the winter

    Hi Everyone. Great to be back after a long, weird winter. Hope and trust everyone is safe, healthy and well. Just opened the 16x36 inground vinyl (no heater) SWG pool over the weekend. Water was mostly clear and I was off and running with my Slam. 48 hours later, the water is clearing up...

    Help with pool covering, tried everything!

    If you keep pool water hi, and a large inflatable in the center of the pool, pitching the cover towards the sides, so that and rain or snow runs off, it would seem like your cover would not have too much stress on it.
