    Pool cleaner hose

    So... I’ve been having serious issues for the second summer with my pool cleaner going in circles. I’ve made many changes, ordered new wheels, tires, bearings, etc etc. But today I noticed something.... My hose doesn’t float anymore. And I think the weight is holding down the debris bag to one...

    Mud in pool- no vacuum setup on pump

    Thanks. I’m an idiot. I didn’t know that the inlet could be used. I didn’t even know there was an inlet under the skinner. Four years and never needed to use it and been caring for my pool myself. Guess I got lucky.

    Mud in pool- no vacuum setup on pump

    Hi All: my dog dog in his infinite wisdom got a bunch of mud in the pool. It looks like poo. Mud settling on the bottom. Unfortunately, we do not have plumbing to hook up a vacuum. I have read other posts and they all talk about a vacuum... probably because it is the best route. Since I...

    Hello from Warm & Sunny El Dorado Hills, CA

    Congratulations and welcome! I am right around the corner in Rocklin. So we have similar climates (HOT!) and sometimes cold. I got rid of my pool guy about 2 months ago and my pool has been sparkling clear using the methods here. You won't go wrong. Hopefully the pool guy didnt mess up the...

    CYA dropped to below 30

    I'm not a scientist, but I sort of buy into the degradation. But the more I think of it, I believe that my pool guy (before I found this website) who was using liquid chlorine (ONCE A WEEK!) measured the CYA incorrectly. I could see how viewing is confusing... and I am pretty sure that the 22...

    Condensation in light

    thanks for the quick reply. I first noticed this a couple of weeks ago when we were going thru several days over 105. So who knows. Doesn't appear like water is in there but I agree- I need to monitor what is going on and perhaps service it myself. Sort of irritating since the pool is only a...

    CYA dropped to below 30

    It does kind of sound like a leak. I have a similar issue as the OP. But after thinking more about this thread, made me think that CH would probably go down as well with a leak. Or alkalinity. Personally, I haven't had any of those decrease at all

    Condensation in light

    Hey all- question... And yea- I have searched here and I can't find a definitive answer but I think I can deduce the answer. I saw today that my Pentair light has some condensation in it. My entire pool is only one year old. Does this definitely mean a leak? It doesn't appear there is water...

    Need help on stenner plumbing

    ok. Thanks. I think I sort of needed affirmation with that? One other question... There is a 2 ft section after my pump but before my filter. I could T off there. Think it would be better than going into pump? i only have solar heating- so not worried about hurting anything. to me- that is bar...

    CYA dropped to below 30

    I was literally just wondering this today. Mine was 80 45 days ago and now it is 50. My pool temp is heated and is 88 during day. Perhaps averages 85. Likely caused degradation if other thread is correct. I don't have a lot of splash out- certainly not that much.

    Need help on stenner plumbing

    Hello folks. Hope all is well! I need help on my stenner plumbing location... I have a pretty "wound" system because of my solar. So there are three valves that make decision on water flow when the solar is on. That said, I have found two locations after the filter that are "possible"...

    Crystal clear but chlorine is ZERO!!??

    My wife and I want to get our money worth on the pool... So we host a lot of large parties in excess of 25 ppl. Maybe 2 a month during summer. The first time this happened when I took control of my pool, I panicked as it took 4-5 days for my pool to chill out and get back to 3ppm loss per day...

    Stenner Install Chlorine Injection

    I'm still jealous. Ha! spoke with my pops today who is a general contractor. He was like "dude... Add an extra breaker and just go direct to the relay to the outlet. Makes sense. Now just have to figure out how to inject this I to my system.
