    What is a recommended pool filter run time?

    I have a SWCG so i run 4 hours each morning.... When it gets REAL hot I'll add a couple hours in the evening after the peak power time expires. If I did not have the salt system I would only need to run a couple hours each day to keep the water good.

    Discount Saltwater Compare chart Plumbing style?

    I'd take that with a grain of salt... Not sure what they mean by "Self Cleaning" unless they mean the reverse polarity function. Also I have the SGS and the manual calls for 4000-45000 ppm of salt while the link states 3000-3500ppm. BTW.. I've had the SGS for 7 years and never an issue...

    White Build Up on Tile

    Looks like the recommended max with a Salt System is 450 so I'm not that much over but would like to lower it a bit to see if the scaling stops.... Do I need to get the Ph down? Currently running around 7.6.

    Looks like they cut it down and left a tall stump to carve into a climbing gym for the kids.

    White Build Up on Tile

    Is it Calcium that could be causing a white chalky build up on my tile? What should my CH level be? Last test showed it at 480.

    thinking of emptying pool

    So, I'm confused. Is the salt cell bad or not? Why put it back in instead of replacing it if bad?
