    Calcium Hardness in AZ

    Tested again from the pool and also from the water spigot that feeds the pool. No change, looks like I need to make a purchase to get my levels a little higher.

    Switched to SWG

    I was able to SLAM and pass the OCLT test and the algae is gone, which is great, now I just need to figure out what I should be running my salt cell at and for how long. Are most running it when the sun is out? I run mine during off peak hours (night time 9pm-9am) to save money but maybe I’m...

    Cracked lid, part # ?

    This part (lid) is cracked and was pumping water up in the air, lost a good amount of water but luckily my neighbor caught it and informed me before it drained my entire pool. Anybody know what the part number is or what the part is called.

    Looking to install a salt water chlorine generator.

    Here is a picture of my setup, looks like the best place to install is the long horizontal pipe with the hose bib attached. I’m not even sure why that is there, I’ve never used it. Any recommendations on which one I should buy?

    Closing a Pool in AZ?

    OK so I made it through the summer with all the great help here, even getting my CYA down to manageable numbers. I see all these people "closing" their pools for the winter. I would think this is not even a thing in Southwest AZ. Anyway how long should the pump be running and at what speed? I...
