    Pump size/SWG capacity - Time to decide soon

    Go with the 40k SWCG. Last time I looked it was the sweet spot in the Hayward lineup in terms of value for the money. It will also give you more flexibility in run times.

    Squeeze last bit of life out of cell?

    I take it with a 40ml sample I would still only use 1 drop of chromate indicator (R-0630)?

    Squeeze last bit of life out of cell?

    UPDATE: I’m getting ready to close so did a full suite of tests, including salt using various methods. The new T15 cell I bought earlier this season has been performing normally. As suggested by Joyful, I reduced usage Jack’s Magic Purple Stuff, but still enough to keep staining under...

    My Dolphin Active30 is a Lemon

    Stories like these make me appreciate my basic 9 year old Polaris 280 even more. It’s not the latest and greatest, but it does the job, it’s reliable, and parts are easy to find and economical. I realize these stories don’t likely represent the majority experience, but I have no appetite for...

    TF100 test kit price

    Odd. It looks like the TF 100 is no longer available; just the TF Pro (Salt and Non Salt options).
