    Pad Layout Help

    I added a heater this week. My priority was to get the pool warm. Now that it is I would like to redo the pad and make it better looking. My pool is plumbed with 1.5” however the heater and chlorinator are both 2”. I’m looking into some Jandy valves. I know I need to put a one way valve in front...

    Stabilizer issues

    Clorox test strips told me I had low stabilizer. I actually had CYA of 240. If I had followed the Clorox strips I would have increased my CYA, wasted money and not fixed the problem at all!

    It’s gonna hurt. I have to pay sewer on it too. No breaks. It’s under 20 per 1000 gallons

    Is this the same thing as “soft” water?

    The water feels like “silky” or “slimy” but not in a bad way. Is this because of the CH? Or the TA being high? Or both?

    How do I look this up? Or is it anything under Shock Level?

    No sticker shock. I thought it would drop faster!

    Amazing considering it was >200 and I was thinking that I would only get it down to 60. My pool gets exposure to direct sunlight for 6 hours. I’m not sure what my target CYA should be yet.
