    Quick Laars/Jandy heater question.

    The heater actually works great. Just trying to figure out how to set the temperature. My last pool had a Hayward heater. I would get pool to to temp then turn down dial until dial clicked and heater shut off...then left dial in that spot. This heater has no click.

    Quick Laars/Jandy heater question.

    Strange thing happening while I vacuum...I get this foamy haze that forms on the surface of the water...like soap residue. I also notice a bit of a prolonged bubble when kids are jumping around or water is disturbed. Skimmer does take it away in a few minutes after vacuuming though.... I am...

    So this is what I have done today: - Replaced sand in filter (the sand was clumped from sealer in filter) - Drained half pool water so far Interesting thing I noticed though. When pool water was still, I could see an oil slick type formation on surface. I read somewhere something about...

    I am using Chlorine to sanitize pool...with pentair auto feeder Any chance the sweet smell is something else? I do have my chlorine levels quite high right now... I am planning on ordering a proper test kit...not that easy to find up here in Canada for some reason...
