    Thinking of getting a Heater/Chiller combo

    I'm interested in the Glacier but they don't seem to have any installers in the NJ area. In doing your research, did you find any competitors that seemed worth while?

    DIY Exposed Pipe Outdoor Shower Plans?

    I ended up getting an inexpensive shower base and leveling it with some pavers and crushed stone underneath

    Running Pump at Night

    Interesting idea - I was trying to avoid draining 15" of water, but that could be a good solve. Might just wait til we close/open for that next season.

    Running Pump at Night

    Interesting, on the advice of my builder, I run it for 12 hours (8a - 8p) at 25-40% depending on weather and other conditions.

    DIY Exposed Pipe Outdoor Shower Plans?

    Yeah I was looking at something like that, but would any water actually make it into the drain?

    Thermostat Running High - Nirvana FC100 Heat Pump

    Hi there - I suspect this is due to the fact that my unit needs some more shade, but my heater thinks the water is at least 5º warmer than it actually is. Does anyone know where on the Nirvana FC100 the temp sensor is so I can target the area to shade more?

    Adding Calcium = 5 ppm FC Drop

    Update pulled a sample of water last night and left it inside to test OCLT (it was due to rain, so I didn’t want that to affect anything) and I didn’t lose any FC. Additionally, I ran my pump and SWG overnight and I’m now back to 3 ppm (I expected to be in this neighborhood). I will check...

    Adding Calcium = 5 ppm FC Drop

    Yeah water guru alerted me to do a real test. WG tests at the same time each day. You can also manually ask it to test additional times. I was working when it told me 0.8, and assumed it was wrong due to the extreme change and the fact I just added a bunch of chemicals. I ran it again after...

    Adding Calcium = 5 ppm FC Drop

    Yes FAS DPD test. I just use waterguru for fun / spot check. My CYA is definitely 60-70. I had it tested independently and it came in at 58 prior to some minor adjustments.
