    Stained skin

    Not sure this is the correct area to post this. Appears I am leaking one of the chemicals on my skin when testing the water. I don’t realize it at the time until I see my skin stained brown. Any ideas of how to remove this and if it’s harmful? 🤷‍♀️

    App Issue

    Hi! I’ve been using the app for a while now and my subscription is active and was renewed in February 2021. But every time I use the app it keeps requiring me to subscribe. I attached a picture, is there a way to resolve this?

    Intermatic 104R - Losing Time

    OK not familiar with a multimeter, but will look into that. I'm guessing they sell the timer mechanism on Amazon? And what exactly is a CB?

    Intermatic 104R - Losing Time

    Hi Guys - looking for some help with the timer that is hooked up to my SWG. I've noticed every couple days I need to adjust/correct the time. The timer is only 3 years old, could it be going bad already? Who would fix something like this, an electrician? I have been able to do a lot of things...

    Replace Flow or New SWG

    Ok makes sense. So looking back at my logs I think I maintained too high a level of FC and too low of CYA. I am going to adjust my levels to 2-4 FC and around 70 CYA. I had my output level at 20% which was probably too high. I’m going to start this one at 2% and see what happens.

    Replace Flow or New SWG

    Thank you guys for recommending Polytec! Received my new cell today, installed, nice to see those green lights! Question about CYA - was reading in the Pentair user guide that they recommend levels of 30-50ppm, however, the app recommends 60-90, which is what I've aimed for when testing. Is...

    Replace Flow or New SWG

    I found ic40 on Amazon for $765; do you know if Pentair honors the warranty if I purchase and install? Local pool company wants over $900!

    Replace Flow or New SWG

    Not sure, I’ll check that tomorrow. As far as cleaning I’ve done the acid clean 3 times in 3 yrs and it’s always been clean, no build up or bubbling action from the acid.

    Replace Flow or New SWG

    Yes right, I used the wires coming out of the cell not the ones going into the flow. So is 3 yrs a typical life? Is there anything I should be doing differently based on my logs?

    Replace Flow or New SWG

    Hi All - question; the flow light has been red for a few weeks, so I purchased a new flow switch. Before replacing it, I did the test by cutting the wire and twisting the red and black wires together. Turned the cell back on and the light remained red. From what I understand, that means the cell...

    What is this?

    Hi All - noticed this white hard stuff forming in the grout lines in the coping around the pool. The picture attached is the worst one. Any suggestions for cleaning this up? I was tempted to start scraping with a putty knife or something, but didn’t want to do any damage. Thanks for all you do!
