    Chlorine question

    Maddie, Thanks for taking the time to reply. The SWG still works on some days, however, I plan on turning it off if there will be no loss of chlorine with the solar cover is on. No one will be checking on the pool as there is no one in the neighborhood that I would trust to monitor it.

    Chlorine question

    We will be leaving for a month or two next week and have placed a solar cover on our pool and reduced pump run time from 12 hours to 8 hours a day. I'm assuming with the cover that the chlorine level will stay the same without the SWG running. Am I correct, and any suggestions on other things to...

    Jim, Thanks, I have studied the manual and just thought if there was a video it would be worth watching. Sometimes there are extra pointers not detailed in the manual. Thanks again for taking the time to respond. Steve

    Cleaning STA-RITE S7D75 DE filter

    Getting ready to do a cleaning on my STA-RITE S7D75 DE filter and thought a video of the process would be helpfull but I am unable to find anything. Anyone aware if one exist? If not, any tips from those who have done this before?

    Chlorine Monitor?

    New to pools and new pool. My SWG settings have ranged from 70% for 12 hrs to my current setting of 10% for 12 hrs. FC levels of recent have been 7.5 at 30 % then reduced to 20% with a 6.5 and yesterday reduced to 10%. The higher SWG percentages were when the CYA was at a low level.

    Chlorine Monitor?

    Is there a device that will monitor the chlorine level and automatically adjust the SWG accordingly? I find myself chasing the chlorine level up and down.

    Good suggestion, although we have a whole house generator, it could fail also. Thanks

    Preparing Pool for Cooler Months

    We live in an area where the temperature occasionally falls below freezing. This is the first year we have had the pool and I'm trying to come up with a good plan to get through the cooler months. I'm planning on running the pump, do I run it the same length of time (currently 12 hours)? I am...

    Safety Cover

    Thinking about having a safety cover installed for the off season and times that we may be away for an extended period of time. Thinking it will make it easier to keep the pool clean for easy opening in the spring. Looking for a rough idea on the cost and which brands are the best.

    Frogs

    I guess I will have to start getting up in the middle of the night to catch him in the pool. I was hoping there might be a trap I could use but I don't seem to find one.
