    Any issue with running my SWG at 100% while slamming?

    that’s exactly what I did, I run my SWG at 100% during the day and then I turn it off at night so that my overnight test is accurate.

    Pool Math - under FC, there is no option for 70% Cal-Hypo under Sanitizer

    Programmatically this is a no brainer to add, and it’s even a bigger jump for me, with my 70% I have to use 65% or 73% calculations, it becomes even more significant when I’m trying to SLAM when my CYA is at 70 and I need a FC of 28.

    Pool Math - under FC, there is no option for 70% Cal-Hypo under Sanitizer

    It goes from 65% and skips to 73%, can you please add 70% as an available option.

    Is there any point to backwashing during a SLAM if my pressure hasn’t increased?

    I’ve been slamming for almost 24 hours, and I was wondering if it would ever make sense to backwash and rinse during this process if my pressure increase has been negligible? 2nd, I know we are supposed to by pass the heater when slamming, but if I had algae in my pool then wouldn’t I also have...

    Can I slam within 5 hours of my initial slam in order to reach my Slam FC?

    My first slam was done at 4PM and there was still a lot of sunlight. it’s now 5 hours later and the initial slam actually worked great and got rid of the green of the dark green water (I had to close for 3 weeks due to repairs). Would it be wrong to Slam again so quickly just to bring the FC...

    Should I be bypassing my heater when slamming (Target FC 24)

    my pressure does drop down to 10 from the normal 15 it is when it’s running through the heater, I didn’t realize that makes it more efficient.

    Should I be bypassing my heater when slamming (Target FC 24)

    Just wondering what the rule is, bypass or not when slamming? If the answer is yes, I can slam and heat pool at the same time, what are the reasons why you would want to ever bypass the heater?

    Small amount of sand in my pool

    I did a really thorough visual, ran my finger across each lateral arm to look for any breaks, I can’t see anything. So if I get this all back in the filter put together, what’s my next step in terms of determining why there is sand in the pool? Any truth to sand losing its sharp edges after 5...

    Small amount of sand in my pool

    I was able to get off the multi valve, I was able to vacuum enough sand that the lateral assembly just slid out without much force. i rinsed it and each lateral arm is able to move up and down, but I’m not sure how to test it further than that. What I meant is that there is still a few pounds...

    Small amount of sand in my pool

    Do I need to remove all the sand of the filter? I removed enough that I was able to remove the inner mechanism, and it’s light enough now that I can move it. does that Umbrella mechanism connect or snap in to anything?

    Small amount of sand in my pool

    From the last time I emptied it, I just re-used the same sand that had been in there for 5+ years. for my maintenance, I typically backwash for 4-5mins and then I rinse 2-3mins.

    Small amount of sand in my pool

    But if I’m leaking some sand now, wouldn’t it mean something is defective or could it be it wasn’t sitting properly after I emptied and re-filled last time? i took out 85% of the sand last time, bit I didn’t put water back in as I was re-filling it, it’s all new to me as it was the first time...

    Small amount of sand in my pool

    I recently had to empty my sand filter for work being done in my Cabana and since then I noticed that there are areas near my returns where small amount of sand is accumulating. It’s reoccurred enough times after cleaning the pool and I can’t ignore it. Im assuming it’s possible I damaged...
