    OmniLogic wireless antenna - installation problem

    So this was not a wifi issue. This was a combination of poor instructions and a clunky user interface from Hayward. I had to tell the system that i wanted to use a wifi antenna. In the instructions, it says to select "wifi bridge" but no such option exists on my firmware. What i did to fix...

    OmniLogic wireless antenna - installation problem

    Hi experts, i need some help. I had my OmniLogic system professionally intstalled a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, they forgot to add the Hayward wifi module (HLWLAN) with my original quote and so it was not installed the day the rest of the system was. They just dropped it off. I'm a...

    Can you look and tell me if this is dirt or algea

    I think my sister has the same issue in her pool. It looks almost like dirt or sand, but when you touch it with your fingers, it just disappears. you can't really pick it up. It isn't gritty. FC is high from several days of SLAMing. Is this algae? I thought it may have been sand from her...

    Have had to add 120 lb salt to pool in one year

    I wish i had to only add that much salt. My pool usually takes 10-12 of the 40lb bags to open each year :p

    Hole in liner patched, how long to wait to vacuum?

    Hi all, Opened my pool to a low water level and once the water became clear, there were two quarter sized holes in the liner about a foot apart from each other. Pool guy was already here installing a new automation system, and was able to patch them with this stuff...

    Help identifying this hayward swimclear filter model?

    Hello everyone, i would like to clean my cartridge filter. I can't find any identifying information/model number on it as the tag that i think would have this info is partially torn off. I just moved into this house, and i don't know if/when the cartridges were last cleaned. The nut looks pretty...

    Some advice: Don't buy anything from WaterGuru

    They have non-existent customer service. I received the Sense last month. Out of the box, it was defective. The circular part that holds the batteries would not clip into the larger round ring it's supposed to sit in. I never put it in my skimmer box because of this. Contacting them for support...

    WaterGuru Setup - New Owner

    Agreed, support is absolutely terrible and nearly non-existent. I initially contacted them for an exchange, but when i didn't hear from them for over 2 weeks i contacted them a few more times and changed it to a refund request because i didn't feel like i was getting anywhere. After hounding...

    Does FC drop faster with higher CYA levels?

    Thanks for your help. So those blocks of colors are not ranges, and the first number is for chlorine, while the second is for bromine (i have a bromine spa). The instructions that come with the kit says that it does test free chlorine, it is actually the first test for the chlorine, followed...

    Does FC drop faster with higher CYA levels?

    So the test kit i'm using is the wrong one? Can you explain why? And to the original question -- are those blocks of colors ranges?

    Does FC drop faster with higher CYA levels?

    Ok here goes -- probably the dumbest question you've ever seen on this board... When measuring Cl or Br with my Taylor kit (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HEAQO5O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1), each colored box has two numbers, ie 1/2, 2/4, 3/6, 5/10 etc. Does this...
