    Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus and Auto Cover question

    I just purchased this unit. Very excited not to have to manually vacuum again. My question is can it be used with my auto cover closed? I can put the power supply in a water proof area and will be able to run the electric cord for the unit where the cover opens. Not sure if the cover...

    PH / ORB controller. Anyone use one.

    The majority of the time. My pool is covered and only uses 1 ppm a day. Then if it get used it can use 2 to 4 ppm. So I am having trouble making my stenner consistent as we do not have a steady routine of pool use. With a toddler around opening it daily to get sun to try and add consistency...

    Rola-Chem Digital pH/ORP Controller - Generation II - RC554000 I am looking at this controller to take over the timer I have on my stenner liquid chlorine feed pump. Does anyone have an opinion. Is it a lot of headaches or does it run pretty good. The guy on the phone acted like the probes...

    Algeacide 50.. Good or bad to use.

    Seems if I let the FC get below 8 ppm and it's in the 90s my pool starts eating chlorine and it gets cloudy. My CC has never been over .5

    Algeacide 50.. Good or bad to use.

    From my research the best I can tell it does not have copper and if I use too much it will cause foaming. Wanting some extra help during the extremely hot months in summer. It only 8 or 9 dollars a bottle. I need 5 ounces a weekly dose. Not gonna break my bank.

    Stenner Pump w/tank

    You can drill and tap an elbow if you are okay with doing it. There is a thread somewhere in here that showed an injection point that is indeed clamped on. If you have a tablet chlorinator they might have a 1/2 capped off thread you can use like mind did. Just make sure you know for a fact...
