    Best Pool Robot to work under Solar Cover

    Hi Guys, My second pool robot (smarthome pool) died and I am in the market for a better one. Are there any pool robots that work well underneath a solar cover? It seems like the chord always gets stuck, my last one had a giant swivel with the idea of 360 chord twisting ability BUT that turned...

    SLAM was successful but maintenance question

    Thanks for the info about Borates - I will look into that I let the FC drift down to 5 - then measured PH which was 7.5. Added a little tiny bit muriatic acid. And later cranked FC back up to 10. Will add another gallon this sunday and hop up to 12-14 again. So far - No algae - I think I got...

    SLAM was successful but maintenance question

    Thanks Guys! Pool temp is now 92 - things still seem good. No chlorine smell - we are in it everyday. I am gonna risk to go down to FC 8 - take PH measurement then go back up to 15 - hopefully no problems. I have not heard about the borate at all. What's the deal with that?

    SLAM was successful but maintenance question

    Yes, I know - but that's not an option right now as I am looking to replaster after this summer season. So right now I need to get thru this season. Guerilla style. At CYA 160 - even refilling 50% would still leave me with CYA 80. So a complete refill is in order here. Will do that when I...

    SLAM was successful but maintenance question

    Hi - so I have no seen anymore yellow algae since the SLAM. My CYA diluted test came back with very high levels , depending on light 120-160. So my maintenance level should be 12-16. Question, PH reading is off over FC10. So I am still just letting it come down from Shock level which was 47...

    DPD Powder

    So I have probably done 15 tests and I am getting low on DPD powder - it says its good for about 100 tests. I am using 1 heaping blue spoon full. But there is no way I can get 100 tests out of that little amount of powder. Am I using too much?

    Test Results are in - who is the winner?

    FC now 27 - still no algae growth ! So when I get to FC 10, I'll add a gallon of liquid once a week and see how that holds up. Is there any reason to shock every now and then, even if no algae is present?

    Test Results are in - who is the winner?

    Some are raised but some are not, definitely rough. Some areas are almost like little indents. What would the yellow color be? So far no algae growth coming back - pool went from 45 FC to now 35FC in the past few days...slowly drifting down.

    Safe Water Levels Clarification

    Just to clarify - by shock level you mean the level you use for SLAMing according to CYA chart, right?

    Test Results are in - who is the winner?

    Check out these pictures - does plaster have some yellowish component in it? If I brush over this I cannot get rid of the yellow parts. It looks like its part of the plaster. Any thoughts on these pics?

    Test Results are in - who is the winner?

    I guess I should have said - I brought the pool up to shock level... Am I correct in understanding that I am now going to measure over night - and once I don't loose any chlorine over night SLAM is done. Is that correct?
