    Got myself a pH meter (Apera PH60)

    I always keep the PH60 probe stored in the manufacturer provided soaking solution as Apera recommends on their website. I have had no issues following that practice. "For Apera's other regular glass bulb pH electrodes (like the ones for PH700, PH60 and PH20), users can store the probe in the...

    Got myself a pH meter (Apera PH60)

    I check PH (with the meter of course) when I do a full chem check. That frequency depends on the time of year and what I observe to be going on with my levels at the time. My PH varies very little normally so I tend to check it infrequently. I keep it soaking in the storage solution as that is...

    Got myself a pH meter (Apera PH60)

    I’ve found that mine rarely if ever needs cal. I’ll do it once every couple of months anyway or just put in the 7.0 solution to check. It’s always pretty much dead on.

    C-19 Vaccine-I got one

    Curious what phase of the vaccine rollout it is that enabled those here to get it so early

    Using bleach

    As your pool is filled I strongly recommend that you take a reading on your meter before and after to get an accurate water capacity to input into PoolMath. Published pool quantity from PBs and manufacturers tends to be wildly inaccurate.

    SampleSizer - Why did I wait so long to get it?

    You have to overflow the vial and spill water?

    How I cool down my Pool

    I also tried one of those amazon waterfall sprayers. Had to sacrifice one of my 3 jets for it of course but in order to get any kind of decent spray also had to plug another jet. So gave up 2 jets and a lot of skimmer efficiency for a ‘water feature’. Family liked it anyway. Took it out when we...

    Off Season CSI

    Thanks for the input. My ph is pretty much rock steady at 7.5 - 7.7 so a ph rise isn’t likely without helping it a bit.

    Off Season CSI

    Just closed/covered the pool for the off season. I run the SWG to maintain chlorine. Water temp never got lower than 53F last year and I expect pretty much the same this year. Chem levels are all pretty much in the ideal range right now except CSI. Should I do anything to raise CSI or just let...

    New from Myrtle Beach, SC

    No, just an inexpensive solar cover, from In The Swim, I believe. My original thought was that we'd cover the pool daily when not in use to conserve heat but quickly realized that was way too much bother. We only use it now to give the leaf net something to float on in the off season. It looks...

    New from Myrtle Beach, SC

    We're nearby in Pawleys, we were in the pool on Thanksgiving day but it appears pool weather is done here for this year. We're closing the pool tomorrow. Last year we ran the pump/filter for 4 hours a day during the time we are most likely to get freezing temps, 12:00 - 4:00 AM. We just cover it...

    Is moving or adding straps not an option?

    When to replace pool screen cage or enclosure?

    New pool cages around here are $10K+. That buys an awful lot of repair work I'd think.
