    Small green algae spots reappearing - what to do?

    Completed SLAM maybe 2 weeks ago, water has been clear, but TONS of rain lately and noticed two days where FC dropped close to 1. Just today I noticed a few small spots of green algae forming, mostly in the corners and around the returns. What's the best course of action here? FC has been...

    Need a pump motor recommendation

    Thanks, that helps. My problem is not knowing how old the components are, and thus if it makes sense to just swap out the motor or if the full pump assembly should be replaced. It appears in good working order minus the motor issues. Curious, but what led to your decision for single speed vs...

    Following up with some additional details - Pump model is SP-2600-B Impeller is SP-2607-C Based on the above I’ll chat up the folks at Inyo Pools and see what they say. Thanks again

    New Home - First Pool - Where do I start?

    Got a ton of rain and then a sunny day and noticed FC dropped to about 1. Bumped back up to 5 but now CC is reading at a 1. Anything to be concerned with, or is there a recommended action at this point? Water is clear, pH still low at about 6.8. Thoughts?

    Thanks — what’s the reason for keeping FC at 7 while working on the PH?

    New Home - First Pool - Where do I start?

    Yep once water was clear and reading for CC was hitting 0.5 a few times (during SLAM) i bumped FC up to 12 for that evening. Morning reading was at FC 11 with CC holding at 0.5. That sound ok? Just want to make sure I didn’t cut it short and then end up with an algae bloom. Are there signs of...

    New Home - First Pool - Where do I start?

    Wanted to post an update here. Pool water has been clear for about 2 days or so. Been raining here all weekend but I backed off the SLAM - hopefully it was the right call. Test results as of this evening: FC 4 CC 0.5 CYA 30 TA 80 PH 6.8 CH 75 Again, water is clear. Some dirt on the bottom...

    Need a pump motor recommendation

    Thanks. Do I need to disassemble the pump to find the impeller part number? Nearly all components had come up empty when trying to find part numbers. Just trying to figure out if doing only the motor replacement is short sighted or not.

    Those bottom pics of the 20A double breaker is the one in my shed controls the pump. The top pic of the main panel shows a green double breaker 30A that runs to my shed. Shed has the above mentioned breaker box for the pump and also a light bulb and outlet in it.

    Let me know if these help Breaker box in house (shed is the breaker for pool) Two shots of the breaker in the shed (20amp) It appears to be a Hayward Super Pump. I can’t seem to find a model or serial number on it (the tag has worn off). How do I determine if the power is 115 or 230V?

    It appears to be a Hayward Super Pump. I can’t seem to find a model or serial number on it (the tag has worn off). How do I determine if the power is 115 or 230V? Motor has both listed on the label (pics below). Lastly, would I want to consider a variable speed over a two speed? Should a...

    Need a pump motor recommendation

    Would it make sense to replace / upgrade just the motor to a VS, given I don’t know the age of the existing pump, or should I be looking to replace the entire pump assembly? Pump (Hayward) doesn’t seem to be leaking anywhere and I can easily swap o-rings and gaskets if needed. Plumbing...

    New Home - First Pool - Where do I start?

    Thanks. To clarify, that FC was the reading once we got home from work. We upped to get it back to 12. What, if anything should I focus on with the other readings?
