    Towel storage ideas for outside

    I just added this to my porch this season. I have a dozen towels or so inside mine. It is waterproof, but mine is kept under our covered porch. I also have our sunscreen inside.

    Is my SWG making chlorine?

    Thanks Jim! I haven’t been running the pump 24/7. Just turned it back on. CYA was 40 when I tested yesterday. There are bubbles from the returns.

    Poolside Plants

    How about some of the ornamental grasses to hide the equip? Or even a few arborvitae trees in front of it. I’ve got a similar situation. We planted a couple of southern lace hinoki cypress. I am regretting the placement of my equipment now. May end up building some type of attractive fencing...

    Rust free pool loungers?

    I am in the market for pool lounge chairs. I am not looking to spend more than $100-$150 per chair. Prefer the sling back type that doesn’t require cushions. My main concern is rust. Any recommendations?

    Salt - how much to add

    Thanks. Yes, the pool math asks for current salt reading. How do I determine that reading? My test kit has no salt test.

    Salt - how much to add

    As my pool temperature is beginning to rise above 60 degrees, I am wondering how much salt to add. I have the TF-100 kit which doesn't have a salt test.

    Lightning storm

    Thanks for your response. The panel has its own breaker panel. Power IS coming into the breakers. There are two. Only one has power going out. That is connected to the pump and SWG. Neither are working. The other breaker is for the pool light. Also not working but power going out. Used a...
