    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...

    CYA 220 & TDS 5500 - yikes! new to this pool - only 3 weeks.

    Some days it’s a half gallon other days when I want to keep the chlorine higher I do a gallon each night.

    Calcium Hardness

    I live in AZ I have hard water, how do most people handle this. Let it creep up over the summer and just leave it high then when winter comes do a partial drain to get the CH down?

    TF 100 Total Alkalinity

    Simple question, Pool Math shows TA should be between 70-90 but the paperwork I received with my TF 100 states the TA should be between 100-120 for manually chlorinated pools (which is what have) What range should I be using?

    CYA 220 & TDS 5500 - yikes! new to this pool - only 3 weeks.

    I’m in AZ also, had the same issue, previous owners used pucks all the time, of course it was June and above 100 everyday, I ended up doing the water replacement, pump in deep end and fill in shallow end. Took me 4 days non stop to get back down to 60 CYA. I feel your pain. In the past few...

    Damaged Skimmer

    Is it normal for door to slam that hard into the tabs to damage/break them? Its like that on both sides and my new door has a crack.

    Damaged Skimmer

    I thought I was doing something good when I replaced the weir door but I didn’t pay attention or I didn’t know the skimmer tabs were actually broken. I have attached a picture (not the greatest, it’s under water) of the weir door and you can see the tabs that hold it from flopping forward are...

    Amount of Chlorine

    I know everybody will have different answers but I am just curious for those of us without SWG that are Liquid Chlorine dumpers how much are you putting in your pool per day? I would imagine your dumping everyday and is it a gallon, half gallon?

    Water Bugs

    Looking up online from what I can tell is they are water boatman. I don’t have tons of bugs just a couple everyday. I scoop them out when I see them. Just wish I had none. I always keep up on my chlorine levels and everything as for numbers look good. Not sure if this is just normal.
