    Robelle Winterizer - What's in it?

    Seems like it must be more than that, especially since it doesn't suggest vacuuming as part of the directions? Why wouldn't they just call it flocculant instead of winterizer?

    Robelle Winterizer - What's in it?

    Hi Everyone, I'm trying to help a friend out with love closing her pool and she just told me that she got pool stored and poured Robelle Winterizer into her pool. Anyone know what's in it? I can't seem to find any details. https://www.robelleind.com/Products/Winterizing-Chemicals-Robelle/

    Second year, I have mystery algae in the vacuum hose.

    When you say that you SLAM the pool, are you meeting all 3 of the completion criteria? You can use your pool during SLAM.

    Tested water for first time today, chlorine test was basically clear and pH is low. Next steps?

    He said he's using Pool Essentials, which looks like 10%.

    CYA, SLAMming, it never ends...

    5ppm/day is a lot in our climate, especially at 50ppm CYA. I have been using 2-2.5ppm/day.

    New Member! How do I get started?

    Use 40 as your CYA reading and refer to the FC/CYA Table. Add bleach to get to a target of 5-7ppm ASAP.

    Voltage in the Pool

    I had a customer complain that his furnace fan was turning on at all hours and waking him up in the middle of the night, thermostat turned off. No call for heating or cooling. We troubleshot this problem for weeks: changed control boards, 24v transformers, thermostats, etc. My shop happened to...

    A gallon per day in a 13kgal pool is a lot. Have you done an overnight chlorine loss test?

    Hayward EC65 - High Pressure

    No. You could have an algae problem.

    Per day? Per week? All at once or a few cups per day?

    Hayward EC50 Leaking DE into Pool when Pump is First Turned On

    Shock and Algaecide are not terms that are typically included in the Trouble Free Pool recommendations for proper pool maintenance. I was in a similar place to you all last year and again at the beginning of this year until I found TFP. My experience was that I was just keeping an algae bloom...

    First time test results, can someone help me make sense and see anything out of the ordinary?

    Add stabilizer via the sock method. Add chlorine to MATCH FC/CYA table for salt water pool. Then set SWG to match demand. (It's not in your signature, but I assume you have a SWG given your salt level.) pH will rise naturally with TA as high as it is. When it gets to 8, add acid to bring it...
