    Doheny/Maytronics Dolphin Cable Swivel

    @Turbo1Ton - Thanks for looking! Like you, I've come up with nothing, and agree that it's most likely proprietary.

    Doheny/Maytronics Dolphin Cable Swivel

    @ribbonofblack - Apologies for the delayed response. Unfortunately, I haven't found a suitable swivel. Regarding the power supply, it's very simple. My vacuum runs on ~30 VDC, so I purchased a power supply (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SY7HFJX) and a wifi switch...

    Doheny/Maytronics Dolphin Cable Swivel

    Hi. I have a Doheny Dolphin (circa 2017) that does not have a swivel cable. I'm getting sick of having toe t constantly untangle it. I'd like to upgrado a swivel cable, but all I've been able to find online are entire cable assemblies for ~$200. All I need is the swivel. I have a feeling this...

    Returns are Popping with Pump On Low

    Thanks, everyone! I'm familiar with the SWCG bubbles. Until we had the crushed return line replaced, I was running aboveground plumbing and noticed bubbles being produced anytime the SWCG was running. Now that we're back to underground plumbing, I guess the SWCG gas is building up in the...

    Returns are Popping with Pump On Low

    I have two returns in my pool. I just installed Infusion venturi jets on both. When running the pump on low (1500 RPM, 20 gpm, 3-4 PSI) I noticed that both returns make an intermittent popping or "burping" sound, and both produce a small amount of bubbles. Clearly, air is coming from somewhere...

    Meyco Cover - Standing Water OK?

    @ajw22 , @JamesW - Thanks for the replies. I'm going to try to remove what I can without popping the cover and lowering the pool. There's not enough water on the top to submerge a pump. I might try to brush it off.

    Meyco Cover - Standing Water OK?

    We have a Meyco pool cover. We got a lot of rain this winter, so the water level in our (closed) pool is quite high right now. We're not planning to open it until ~Memorial Day. About 10 days ago, we had heavy rain. As is normal for any trampoline-style cover, the rainwater pooled in the middle...

    Salt Water Test Failure?

    Ha...I'm an idiot...10 ml sample is correct.

    Is CYA really needed?

    Just installed a SWG this year. Have been running for about three weeks and the water has looked amazingly clear the entire time, with no signs of algae forming on the walls or anything. So far, I'm VERY pleased. Per this site and the SWG instructions, I started adding granular CYA to the pool...

    Salt Water Test Failure?

    Was testing my water for salt content today using the Taylor K-1766 kit. Prior to today, I've never had a problem with this test. FYI, I'm using the Taylor stirrer. Filled the cylinder with 25ml of water, added the drop of yellow and started adding the other drops. As soon as I added the first...

    Salt not mixing...?

    This is the salt I used - Diamond Crystal® Solar Naturals® Water Softener Salt Crystals | Diamond Crystal® Salt. I added the salt on Sunday morning, and the pump has been running 24x7 since then, albeit at low speed (~20GPM). No floor drain. Pump is pulling water from the skimmer. In...

    Salt not mixing...?

    Recently installed a Crystal Pure PL7703 SWG. My pool's volume is about 27K gallons at the current water level based on my calculations, but I err on the high side for Pool Math purposes because I'm not 100% confident in my math. So, according to Pool Math, to take 30K gallons of water from 0...

    Added 900 pounds of salt, SWG still showing 0

    Thanks, everyone. I ordered the K-1766 test last night. I had ordered a digital meter, but didn't realize it's primarily for seawater and doesn't have sufficient resolution for pool water. @JamesW - Thanks for those details. Most of what you typed isn't in the manual - or at least not the...

    Added 900 pounds of salt, SWG still showing 0

    Last week, I installed a Crystal Pure SWG (model #PL7703) for my 30K gallon pool. Finally got around to adding the salt today (was sanitizing with bleach) and am starting to dissolve the CYA. I added 900 pounds of salt and swept it until completely dissolved. 12 hours later, the SWG's instant...

    Running SWG 24x7?

    First season with a SWG. I'm planning to run it 24x7 and am wondering if that's a terrible idea. Here's the background: I have a variable speed pump that displays watts of electricity being used. I also have a FlowVis flowmeter. Every season, I check the flow in 100 RPM increments and determine...
