    Matted bubbles

    This is the second thread about surface bubbles, the first thread they asked for a picture, and then the filter broke on the pool and I had to get the chemicals right. So, fc,8 ph,7.6 ta,100 Ch,260 cya,80 salt 3900. The only thing that could be the problem is ta is a little high.

    TA is 90

    I have tested the total water and the only thing that was off was the TA, it is 90. I have been having health concerns this summer, so I have been Testing mostly FC. The TA was 70 July 12. I am asking, can higher TA cause an issue with something? Is it not high enough to be an issue yet? It...

    Clean and clear pentair filter

    I am using the pentair filter for the last 3 years. The first year I didn’t do a thing. The second year I had to do a couple cleanings and it was good. The third year I have cleaned and taken apart 5 or 6 times and there doesn’t seem to be any thing else I can do. I have used the filters for the...

    new house, green pool, too cold to swim

    Was the pool winterized? As in covered? filter put away or drained? The window for such things is closing fast. If still working and filtering it might be possible, but the fact the water is so cold algea isn’t producing so won’t get much worse till spring. I don’t think I would mess with it...

    How to seal / patch cracks in pool deck

    I tried the low viscosity epoxy on the hair line cracks, it basically degraded over the first winter and one summer. I also used it around the chipping at anchors for winter cover and that held up very well, same length of time. I also had a pop of concrete the size of a tennis ball, used a...
