    Balancing (Pool water looks dull)

    Thanks! Lowered to 7.2 and then added some chlorine to bring it back to 12 PPM. It’s pretty close, probably one more day of SLAM.

    Balancing (Pool water looks dull)

    Guess I missed that part. Should I throw some acid in there now to lower to 7.2?

    Balancing (Pool water looks dull)

    Opened pool yesterday. Tested chemicals several times today and yesterday. FC: 13.5 CC: 0 PH: 7.6 CYA: 30 CH: 210 TA: 100 No debris left in pool, just water look dull.. should I try to lower TA a little? Could that cause the dullness?

    Chlorinator not working?

    I had a similar issue when I used my inline Pentair chlorinator. I left the top off of the chlorinator and turned the pump on; once the water reached the top of the chlorinator, I screwed the top back on.. Wouldn't recommend using the chlorinator, but that's how I got mine to work when I used it.

    It's not algae after all........help!

    Could the fingers in your sand filter be broken; that would possibly allow sand back into the water through your returns?

    Pool Math App-Inconsistencies

    Hi All, Quick question. When looking at the PH section with a current PH of 7.8 and a target PH of 7.2 using 31.45% MA it suggest I use 8.2 oz to lower to my target level.... When going into the effects of adding 31.45% MA it says that adding 8 oz will lower PH by .1... Any idea why there are...

    Menards - Midwest liquid chlorine sale - $.125/oz

    I picked up 10 cases yesterday, as I have to use 1 gallon of 12.5% daily (Date was June 5, 2019) to keep my pool at the proper levels.. Hoping they run another special around Labor Day; so I can finish out the season. I store in my basement so it stays pretty fresh.

    Water Feels Chalky on skin - Causes?

    I have a fiberglass pool and if I rub the walls I get a white chalky substance that comes off; is that what you are seeing? My chemistry is perfect; so I have pretty much just ignored it.

    Typical Chlorine depletion

    I have a CYA of 60, and lose roughly 4 PPM every day.... I add 1 gallon of 12.5% every morning which typically takes me to 9.5-10 PPM, and then it drifts down..
