    Use Trichlor Pucks for awhile?

    Thanks, I forgot to add the pH has been trending up over a show period of time. So I'm constantly adding acid to keep it down.

    Use Trichlor Pucks for awhile?

    My pH is about 7.6, and Chlorine about 4.0. CYA is 20 or a bit less. Should I use Trichlor pucks for awhile instead of Liquid Chlorine to get the CYA higher? to 30 or 40? Thanks

    Hot Tubs

    What about the Masters Spa Brand? They show at our nearby fairgrounds, and seem to have a good BBB rating. A couple of websites seem to rate them highly also. Thanks

    Skim a round

    EDIT: Not sure I can recommend these products. Mine failed just removing it from the pool, and they claim they don't support my generation of Skim-a-Round that is just over 1 year old. I just need the floating skimmer that cracked and failed when room from pool.

    Skim a round

    I purchased a Skim-A-Round Ultimate last year. I used it mostly in "Original" mode, with just the Skimmer and hose, and no Vacuum hooked up. I was very satisfied with it's performance, until.... Yesterday, I removed the internal basket, and tried pulling the surrounding float out of the water...

    Are there better pH meters that hold their calibration?

    Skimmer is too high

    I use a Skim-A-Round, and I think it will act as your skimmer with the water much lower. Use the original model. http://www.skim-A-Round.com

    Active 30i Turns off

    Right now my 30i is flashing, because it is on a schedule. I think the display stays on after a cycle if I'm just running one day at a time. Because I think I have to turn it off, and then on, to make my 30i run when is is on on schedule. I will test more, and report back.
