    Sand in pool

    I was getting sand in my pool last year. The problem turned out to be a damaged lateral inside the filter, although I'm not sure what the actual cause was. Replacing the lateral itself was pretty easy once you can access them. But removing the sand (in my case 200lbs worth) to get to it was a...

    Muriatic acid with vinyl liner

    I'm also using MA and if I could also ask a question (sort of on-topic)... When I began prepping my pool about a month or so ago, my TA was about 160. I've been adding MA to lower the pH to 7.2, aerating to raise pH, testing TA levels, repeat...repeat. Today my tests show TA levels of 100. Goal...

    Integrity of the pool stores

    See, I would have a problem with that. But I tend to be persistent. "What? What do you mean you don't do that? I'm your customer. What is your reasoning for not sharing the test results?" I'd keep asking, going through the chain of command until I got a satisfactory answer....or I get kicked out...

    Did you ask WHY you couldn't see the printout. If so, what did they say?

    New(er) user here with questions about the Pool Math App

    That was my suspicion. I should have scrolled down to the bottom of the app page on Google Play Store and read the "Premium Subscribers" part, which I admit I didn't do. I had read just enough of the description before deciding it was something useful. My bad. Thanks again...and subscribed!

    New(er) user here with questions about the Pool Math App

    Thanks for replying. Ok so when I go to enter my test data I press the "New Log" icon. There is nowhere else to enter data that I can find. Then it says "Log New..." and I select "Test Results". It then says "Premium Subscription Required"....and I'm back to square one. Do I need to pay just to...

    Hello, I signed up here a while ago and have been mostly lurking, absorbing as much information as my ADHD mind will allow. I recently installed the Pool Math App for Android and I'm not having an easy time using it. I have filled in the basic info the app requires such as pool size, bleach...

    Hayward CL200 installation

    Sending the CL200 back. I guess I shouldn't have been so impulsive, and done more research upfront first. That being said, I'll be looking at the liquid methods, along with getting a better grasp on chemistry and maintenance. Thanks for the replies! -Dan

    Hayward CL200 installation

    Hello, I'm new to the forum and fairly new as a pool owner. My question is...I just purchased the CL200 chlorinator but am getting confused on the connections I need. Do I need to order the sp1500unpak1 or sp1500unpak2? The owners manual isn't too clear and mentions both options. Can someone...
