    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Merged threads - TFP Mod I have been trying to clear the dead algae from my pool for almost three weeks now. This is the second year I have had trouble with a cloudy pool. I never got it clear last summer. I’ve been slamming daily. Chemicals are spot on. I have gone though nearly my entire...

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    My pool is very blue. I have been trying to follow the SLAM process as closely as possible. I think I have a lot of dead algae to filter out.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Pool is very blue but cloudy. I had a very green pool about 10 days ago. My test results this morning: FC 12 CC 0 PH 7.2 TA 80 CYA 35 I plan to add more chlorine in a few minutes to get it back to shock level.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Merged threads. So I bought my pool with the house. It’s 24k gallon inground. We have a Hayward Superpump 1HP. Skimmer and bottom drain lines are 2”. 1 1/2” jet lines. Filter holds 150# of sand. I think I need a bigger filter correct? I am having a lot of trouble clearing it after opening this...

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    So after researching pool filters a bit, I think my filter is too small for my pool. It’s Hayward sand filter that holds 150# of sand with a 1HP Superpump. I have a 24k gallon pool. I bought the house with the pool….

    I’ll continue to shock. Thank you. I do think it’s improving, but soooo slowly. I may change out to a DE filter next year.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    This mornings test: FC 12 CC 0 PH 7.2 TA 80 CA 40 CYA 35 I know I need to add calcium… but that shouldn’t effect clarity should it?

    At least twice per day. More than that on my days off.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Pool was very green upon start up and we had a little trouble with the pump system. Everything seems to be running now. I have been shocking the pool quiet often. I’ve gone through roughly 32 gallons of shock. Filter has been running continuously for 9 days. We have a Hayward sand filter with...

    Help! I need new parts for my Hayward super pump

    I have an older Hayward Super Pump. I’m having trouble finding parts with the correct model number. Any suggestions? I need to replace the ceramic shaft seal, housing gasket, and diffuser gasket. Also, any idea how old this pump is? We bought the house with the pool.

    Pump won’t prime

    One of the o-rings I replaced was off just a smidge. Corrected and added a ton of lubricant. Also the outlet was fine, had to replace the cord and plug to the pump. All up and running now. 🙌

    Pump won’t prime

    No difference between skimmer and bottom drain. Water is a little on the high side today but yesterday (when we tried opening) it was perfect. Connections are definitely correct, I have everything marked. Haven’t ruled out blockage and haven’t checked impeller. I did just find another o-ring...

    Pump won’t prime

    Trying to get my pool going for the summer. I have a 25k gallon pool with a Hayward super pump and sand filter. I have a skimmer and bottom drain. I knew we had to change the sand this year so we did that. Filled the pool up, hooked up pump, filter, and piping. Filled the pump basket with the...
