    Leaking Anti-Freeze after Closing

    Thank you. I have a cover I put over the entire heat pump before the snow arrives. They always “plug” that pvc pipe at the bottom with the same technique you see in the pic (bag and tape). Just not sure because I’ve never seen bright pink antifreeze behind that bag before.

    Leaking Anti-Freeze after Closing

    Thank you. They always put a little bag over that but I’ve never seen the antifreeze in there before. Appreciate the reassurance about the toxicity.

    Leaking Anti-Freeze after Closing

    So my pool company just left. There is antifreeze leaking from a pipe that I’ve never seen have antifreeze in it after closing. I am concerned because I have dogs. Should there be antifreeze in this pipe that comes out of the bottom of my heater? Pic attached. Thanks!

    Cracked Cartridge Filter x2

    Ok, thank you. I typically do lift them about an inch off the ground spin them towards the sun and let them drop to the deck when trying to dry them. Maybe I’ve damaged them from doing that. Appreciate the response.

    Cracked Cartridge Filter x2

    Hi. I’m not sure. I need to replace my pressure valve. But for 4 years I’ve never waited for the gauge to tell me when to clean the cartridges. I clean them frequently so I don’t think they cracked due to a Buildup of organics/pressure. I didn’t notice the crack until they were soaking. I’m just...

    Cracked Cartridge Filter x2

    Hello. I have (3) sets of cartridge filters that I rotate through. Pool is only open May-Sept. This is my 5th summer with the pool. Earlier this season I noticed one of my original Hayward filters cracked and thought it was just due to age. However, I am currently soaking a different set in...

    Stenner Pump—How to adjust daily dosage to meet target FC?

    Hello. Next summer I’d really like to get a stenner pump, tank and timer to avoid adding (manually) liquid chlorine each night. But each night when I test the ounces needed varies based on my FC reading (to hit my target range). Am I missing something? Is there a device that reads your chlorine...
