    Wrong PolyQuat

    Closing tomorrow. I went today to put my PolyQuat in and realized I bought two bottles of 30 instead of 60. If I use two bottles of 30 does that equal a 60? I won’t be able to get 60 in time for when they come to install our new cover. Am I better off to use these two bottles of 30 or should I...

    How cold of water will you swim in?

    The pool is 72 today. Me and the kids jumped in for a bit. My one daughter (8) can swim at any temp for multiple hours. Lol.

    SWG install tomorrow

    I added to my skimmer, but on my skimmer I have the skimmer socks. So the CYA granules sit in there until they pass through on their own. Seems to work ok.

    Marina Pool & Spas question

    I called just after their opening time, maybe that had something to do with it. My experience was about 2-3 weeks ago.

    Marina Pool & Spas question

    I called the store, was transferred to Margaret, she gave me the run down on products, I told her I’d call her back after deciding, I called back, gave a credit card and had my robot on a Monday after ordering on a Friday morning. I bought the M600 which was almost $1000 less through Marina...

    SWCG Test Results - Any Tweaks?

    I think I’m done messing with it. 🤣 Seriously though, I love this forum. Everyone is so helpful. As a first time pool owner with a black / green / 4 year closed up pool, you guys have been there helping all along. I think after the first year, I can say it’s been a success. We cleaned up the...

    SWCG Test Results - Any Tweaks?

    Attached my latest pool math. After converting to SWCG and doing a SLAM, I seem to be pretty stable. I’m an over analyzed by nature, so always looking to improve. Seems like PH is a little high, TA a little low, etc. Any thoughts on my results? Or if it ain’t broke don’t fix it? Being that...

    Cannot maintain chlorine levels

    Had exact same issue last month with my SWCG. I swore up and down that there had to be a problem with it. My water looked crystal clear. I finally gave in and did the SLAM. Passed after a few days. SWCG has been running like a champ at only 20% and keeping my FCL around 7 since. Very happy with...

    How can you tell how much chlorine is being generated?

    I was in the same boat last month. I felt like my SWCG could not keep up and I thought it was defective. I posted on here and everyone encouraged me to do the OCLT. I failed and SLAMmed for a week. Since passing SLAM, I have been running my FCL on the high side of the recommendation and the SWCG...

    Heat Pump Doesn’t Seem to Be Working

    With how we use the pool, seems like NG would be better for us, but maybe another year!
