    Where did you find replacement reagents on Ontario? I had to order mine from the US, through Amazon.ca.

    Needing some POP

    So I finally got my resupply and topped up my CYA, raised the TA (tested 60 today?) and CH. My question, should I have waited til the FC drifted down before adding CYA? Was at 9.5 this afternoon. Haven't turned on SWG yet, but fired up the heater.

    First Test Results. No CYA?

    SWG off until SLAM complete and pump running on high.

    Liner wrinkles

    No extreme changes in PH... I think the lines are around where the snow level came up around the pool.

    Needing some POP

    Passed the OCLT with flying colors! Tested at 10pm, FC of 15 (added LC at 830pm, stirred) FC at 15 this morning with no CC. Should I do a final backwash tonight maybe? Pressure is maybe 10% over normal. Not the best pic (should've turned pump off), but it's clear! Yes, that is reading...

    Needing some POP

    Waiting for more reagents, so can't afford a 25 ml test ;) Being in Canada sucks, takes forever to get Taylor stuff... and costly. I have been vacuuming with the same hose, do you mean vacuuming when FC is highest (a bit after dosing)?

    Liner wrinkles

    A little hard to see because of my liner pattern, and not quite crystal water.

    Needing some POP

    Maybe a bit cloudy still... but I think I passed OCLT. Was at 11 FC, added 1.3 Liters of LC. This morning's test was 17 FC.... still bit of CC though.

    Liner wrinkles

    My concern is that they run the circumference of the pool, and it's more than 3 wrinkles in some places. It's like a 10 inch band of "slouch" around the pool, about halfway up. If it's fine to leave for the season, I'm happy to do that as I've spent a few days clearing it up and that would...

    Liner wrinkles

    So as the swamp cleared, I noticed my liner has like 3 wrinkles that go around the entire pool? How does that get fixed?

    Needing some POP

    Yeah, I am over slamming because I haven't had time to babysit, so overdosing to make sure I am covered. Looking almost fully clear today, will test this evening and hopefully get a backwash in tomorrow.

    Needing some POP

    I guess I should be in POP mode, but it's been almost 3 days, I've stayed well above my SLAM level of 12ppm, vacuumed and brushed twice and I am still cloudy. It was a crazy swamp to start though. Didn't bother tesring CH.

    Automatic water level?

    Is that a sanitary sewer drain also? What would be the point of the overflow valve if you could just drain to that?

    Out of town, pool about to overfill

    Since my pool in dug is 18 in. in the front and a sloping clay backyard I got extra paranoid and put lots of landscape drainage in around my pool. I have mole-pipe surrounding the buried base area that drains out to river rock in back area where the equipment pad is. The river rock works...

    Stumped

    I squeaked by my OCLT with a loss of 1.0 ppm and a C.C. of maybe 0.5. I need to order reagent now :testkit:
