    Stain removal

    I’m guessing that iron does not show up in any type of testing?

    Stain removal

    I do know there is nothing to scrape. It’s flat and seems to be in the plaster. That was why I was thinking it was not scale but I have tried the tablet and had no change in color. Will try the dry acid. Thanks

    Run time on timers

    does anybody know if you can put multiple on/off screws on timers? Want to turn in the pump in the morning for a few hours then the rest at night when chlorine is not gassed off so easily. Any thoughts

    Winter vacuums

    No real reason besides picking up the leaves and debris before opening. It is winterized, was just curious.

    Does anybody use a robot to vacuum in the winter with their covers on?

    fine mesh winter cover

    I have a mesh cover and have opened to not a green pool but it’s not crystal Blue either. The mesh is great cause it lighter easier to store and easier to put on. It does not keep all debris out. Some does get in there. Your pool is drained quite a bit to allow fur winter precipitation to seep...

    Jacks Magic #2

    ph too high

    If this is a plaster pool I can tell you from experience the acid works the best for me. If it is only a month old you will go through quite a bit of acid as the plaster cures.

    I didn’t mean below skimmers, I meant below the top of the skimmer.

    Non stop rain filling pool almost to coping

    What did you mean run it to your gutters? I like it just don’t understand it. Do you mean the pipe out of the ground from the gutters?

    Non stop rain filling pool almost to coping

    I am also here in Md. I drain mine until it gets below skimmers. I still run my pump as it’s important to keep water moving with warm air and water.

    Chlorine Tablets ok?

    Wrong forum to ask that! Lol, but I have realized the tablets are good for some things. Vacations, long time away but not in excess. There is plenty on here about why not tablets. Big thing I read about is the cya can go through the roof without you knowing and then you will have bigger issues.
