    Water squirting out of sand filter

    So this isn't probably good, right? There is a little stream of water squirting out of my Triton II sand filter when running on high speed. It's coming out of the fiberglass, not from the top? Does this call for a total replacement or is there a repair solution for this?

    Salt readings doubled

    Oh man, I totally did that. I was reading the directions that said "Rinse and fill 25 ml sample tube (#9198) to 10 ml mark...." I just stopped reading after 'fill 25ml' . Thanks for pointing out the obvious.

    Salt readings doubled

    It's been a year since I tested the salt levels in my pool, but last august they were 3800, which is right where I want it for my SWG. I've noticed that it's been flashing lately for high salt and I tested twice today and it came back at 8,000. What would cause that number to rise like that...

    How to remove slide valve

    I have a Pentair Triton II with a side mount slide valve. This thing is overdue for a cleaning since it gets stuck all the time. I unscrewed the nut but cannot pull out the shaft. I've released the pressure in the system but still stuck. Any tips?

    Increasing water temp strategy

    Ok thanks. I guess I'll wait for it to raise the regular way.

    Increasing water temp strategy

    I would like to raise the water temperature of our pool a lot earlier this summer than what it normally does without any external effort. Tell me if I'm crazy: I plan to run the water through our rock water feature every day when we are in low speed so that more water is exposed to our air...

    Can I do this for a backwash

    I'll look into the idea of a vac hose instead. I did have concerns already over the bw hose kinking up and tearing over time. I really need ~80ft to reach the furthest areas of the grass so I could connect a few smaller ones. Could you point in the right direction of the product I would need...

    Can I do this for a backwash

    Thanks. I've thought long and hard if flooding my grass with the salt water pool would be ok. My grass is watered to about 7-9" every 2 to 3 days, so like you mentioned, I feel that it would be ok since it will be diluted pretty quickly. - - - Updated - - - Yup, that looks perfect, i'll...

    Can I do this for a backwash

    Thanks. A backwash hose it is. I already have a 50 foot backwash hose but need another 50 to reach all parts of the grass. Do you think I’m able to link another 50 foot hose together or do I need to get a complete 100 foot hose? I’m trying to think of what fitting would be needed to link them.

    Can I do this for a backwash

    I would like to water my grass when I backwash, as opposed to what I've been doing for years (the street). I have a 1-1/2" pipe coming out of my filter. Would I be able to get that pvc to attach to a garden hose and water the grass that way? Or is backwashing through a garden hose not the...

    Connecting backwash hose to pump

    Do I need any special adapter at the end of my 1.5" pipe coming from the pool filter to attach to a standard backwash hose with a clamp? Or is the clamp enough to keep the hose attached?

    Rubber Stopper for Weir Door Help!

    I tried in a previous post to get any insight but no luck. Here's a picture of the setup. I had to get a new rubber stopper for my weir door. I cannot for the life of me get the thing to fit into the little hole. Anyone with experience have any tips? I've tried pool lube but that did not work.
