    Power Washer Soap & Chemical Balance

    I want to clean my pool deck with my power washer using the soap that came with it. Most of the water will end up on my automatic pool cover but will also go into the pool. How much do you think this will affect the chemical balance in the pool? I plan on opening the pool after I have cleaned...

    Cartridge Filter Closing Question

    I have an automatic cover so I can't drain the water below the skimmer or returns. This will be my first time closing with a Cyclone and I have a modified pump cover so I will be blowing out the lines from the equipment pad. I have a cartridge filter so do I need to drain it before I begin...

    SWG Wiring Help

    High CH

    But rise 200 ppm over the winter? It's been pretty steady since 2016. Something doesn't sound right.

    High CH

    I test my CH every few weeks during the season. I do add fill water due to evaporation and splash out. I just checked the CH of my fill water and it's 300. I received a refill kit for my TF-100 test kit a couple of weeks ago so my chemicals are fresh.

    High CH

(Since I have an automatic cover, I don't lower my water) pH - 7.6 Cl - 6 CH - 300 TA - 100 CYA - 30 I opened the pool today and am in the process of converting to a SWG from liquid bleach. These were my readings pH - 8.2 Cl - 5 CH - 500...

    Preparing Water for SWG

    I am converting from liquid chlorine to a SWG and need to get my CYA and salt up to the recommended levels. Can I add both CYA and salt at the same time or is it better to do them individually?

    Jandy CL580 Filters

    Where is a good place to buy replacement CL580 filters? Should I stick with OEM or are generic fine?

    SWG Bonding

    No corrosion but I would expect them to darken since they're exposed. My pool is 4 years old.

    SWG Bonding

    The control box has a bonding lug. I just wanted to make sure it was acceptable to have 3 separate bonding wires attached to the pool bonding wire.

    SWG Bonding

    My heater and pump are attached to the bond wire at this point and I wanted to make sure I could add the SWG bonding wire as well.
