    New owner first pool

    I am getting ready to add borates to my pool. My PH has been around 7.5 should I raise it to 7.6 before I raise the borates? I was thinking the SWG would cause it to raise but it hasn’t.

    Dogs and pool training

    Thank you we are planning to tie some flagging tape to the stair handrail too in hopes the will see the railing easier and get use to the area as the entry exit point.

    Dogs and pool training

    Thinking this may be a good place to post this. I have heard how dogs have trouble finding the stairs in pools since all they see is the edge the whole way around. Does anyone have any tricks at teaching the dogs where to enter and exit the pool at? We were thinking about hanging something near...

    New owner first pool

    Got the RJ45+ added so now at salt pool. Also put fresh sod around the pool which has made the back yard look a ton better. Previously the yard was mostly dirt from the previous owners. I attached a before and after photo.

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    RJ45+ seems to be running great. Currently running my pump for 9 hours a day and the SWCG at 20% and it is producing well. Depending on my FC test today I may turn it lower but it is doing great and well worth the initial cost.

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    Circulpool followed up with a phone call today asking if I had the problem immediately or if it was after some time running the system. I was happy to see they are trying to reach and fix the problem in the future.

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    Finally up and running. Hooked it up before work in 15 minutes but it wouldn’t power up. Grabbed some fuses for the internal fuse on my way home. Replaced the Internal fuse and everything If running now. I am thinking when they tested the cell and found it was bad they must not have done...

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    Everything is back. I think the RJ is haunted with bad luck because it was delayed a day while in transit with UPS. long day at work so wasn’t able to get it hooked back up tonight. Hopefully will get it up and running tomorrow.

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    Irritated...... The Salt Cell showed up today but the Control Panel was not shipped with it like I was told it would be. Just called and not real clear on what the mix up was other than staffing issues with the COVID-19 stuff which I can image if probably a problem. It is being sent out today...

    First time store test

    I am very close to getting one. Just seems it would be more consistent and easier with several of the counting tests.

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    Yea the other good thing was they had me try a few things prior to saying send it in. Makes sense for them to test it there in their controlled environment. With all these different pool stores giving all different advise who knows what people have in their pool. Maybe I should have dropped the...

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    I received my tracking number for my salt cell. Waiting for one for my controller head, unless of course they are all being sent from the same place. On paper I sent the controller to DiscountSaltPools and the new salt cell is coming from Circupool. I emailed Circupool last night about the...

    First time store test

    Also my RJ45+ before I sent it in for warranty work and they found the cell to be bad was showing the salt average at 2600 but again the cell wasn’t working correctly. I don’t have it back yet but want to make sure the salt level is correct when I get it back next week.

    First time store test

    Today I decided to take my water to a local pool store to be tested for comparisons. They said my salt was low at 2600 and my CH was at 39. My main reason for going was to make sure I was doing my CYA correctly. ere is what the store got: I had checked my salt yesterday and my test showed...

    I think I have a problem with RJ45+

    I tried not to call them and bug them since they only received it yesterday. However, with it being good Friday tomorrow and possibly closed I was that PIA customer. Anyway the tech was working on it when I called and they told me I would get an email shortly with info. About an hour later I got...
