    Pool Closing - Getting killed with upcharges

    I just assumed chemicals and cleaning were all included in closing, but to them, closing just really means blowing out the lines.

    Pool Closing - Getting killed with upcharges

    First year with the pool, never done a closing before. Pool company quoted me $300 for the closing, and then of course all the extra costs come in for things I assumed were included (again, I'm a total newb at this): $99 to add shock, algaecide and metal sequestrant $99 to clean SWG cell $99...

    FC still high 7 days after SLAM

    I put it down to 0 and then got ~9 inches of rain. We weren’t swimming that week because of all the rain and I just wasnt thinking about it. Forgot I turned it to 0.

    FC still high 7 days after SLAM

    Yeah this swg seems to be very efficient. At 10% it was keeping 10+ FC levels.

    FC still high 7 days after SLAM

    I SLAMmed the pool a week ago and got the FC up to 28. Pool was turning green but the SLAM fixed it quickly. Pool is crystal clear. The FC has not gone down, however. It’s still at 28. I also drained and refilled a few inches of water (unrelated) and it hasn’t changed. ph 7.8 Salt 3000 CYA 30...

    Massive rain over past 7-10 days

    Massive rain over past 7-10 days

    Should I raise my CYA? TFP says my recommended level is 70 or 80. If so do I do that after the slam?

    How do I drain water after heavy rain

    I may leave it. The skimmer is barely working though that was my only concern. Nothing is really getting sucked into it. Not as much as usually anyway. Or maybe I’m just imagining things. Brand new pool owner (~3 weeks).

    How do I drain water after heavy rain

    I have a giant hose that will clamp on to that black cap and will reach all the way to the street. I was told I’d be able to use that to drain the pool but they never showed me how. A little scared to try it
