    Recommendations on re-plaster in Virginia

    This is really helpful. Thanks. Using the plaster material sites as a reference to locate pool renovators in my area revealed a number of companies I hadn't found in other searches I had made. It's something I wouldn't have thought of by myself. There's some common companies that sell both sets...

    Recommendations on re-plaster in Virginia

    Title says it all.. We're located in the Virginia's Northern Neck, and our 18 year old pool is going to need re-plastering for the next swim season. I'm hoping someone on this site is happy with with work that was performed for them, and will pass on a recommendations on a company or...

    My WaterGuru Sense testing

    FWIW.. I had a nice long chat with Pankaj part of their tech support last night. He went into a lot of detail about how the product works and what the problem might be on my end. They have all of the "raw" data from my device on their end and he was able to pull up exactly how many times my...

    My WaterGuru Sense testing

    I'm still have the measurement failure also. I last touched the device on Sunday, and it took a measurement that day. Monday it didn't (the same flow and temp measurement recorded, but no FC and PH as described previously). I asked to "measure now", but that didn't matter on Monday. It then did...

    My WaterGuru Sense testing

    I have had the same problem intermittently. I'm sorta glad its not just happening to me.. I was told by WG to reseat the cassette. That worked, but then it happened again a few days later. Sometimes if I ask it to do take a "measurement now" after its reported a "no test", it will solve the...

    My WaterGuru Sense testing

    FWIW.. What they told me was: "Flow readings are in comparison to what we test in the lab. Just think of them as sufficient or not sufficient. We have tested units in many orientations. The best is when the cassette is facing away from the pool directly. "

    My WaterGuru Sense testing

    Assuming I understand your comment, the APP itself only reports the numerical value for the current day. But if you look at the top of the historical display to the side of the date you should see a "<" (left arrow). If you press on that it will move the display to the previous day and display...

    My WaterGuru Sense testing

    I just got one of these also. I'm reserving judgement until I have a bit more experience with it, but so far my experiences are that: - it's missed a few days (one day there was no report at all, and two days where it reported temp and flow, but not FC and Ph) - I've had a number of days where...

    is it overkill ?

    My stenner pump is set to run for 30 min/day and even with my diluted acid that's enough to pretty much hold my Ph steady. Your timing will have to be worked out based on the parameters of your pool, your pump, and how much acid you typically need. Obviously, the Stenner pump is timed to turn on...

    is it overkill ?

    My salt pool has always had PH creep, and I was always fighting it. So I bought a Stenner pump, connected it into my plumbing and have been dosing acid that way. I bought a not very epensive wireless timer to turn the pump on and off, and used poolmath to figure out the dosing, and then coverted...

    Suddenly.. no chlorine?

    I've just started what would be my 3rd season on a Hayward Aquarite system with a T-9 cell. Everything was newly installed just over 2 years ago. What's the failure modes for these things? I was expecting at least "some" warning on the cell front, if that's what this is. Everything was fine...

    How long do each of the different reagents last?

    The link provided in the previous post was the information I was looking for.. Thanks ajw22... But I'm officially now confused about my TA reading.. I have 3 sets of reagents for testing TA, R07, R08, R09.. A set from 2018 that say they expired 03/20. I have a refill set from last year from...

    Cap size for filter drain?

    FYI. The two gasket solution in the drain cap seems to be holding up fine. No signs of leakage, so I'm just gonna not touch it until I have to :rolleyes:

    New build in Northern VA

    Not that I know anything specific.. but make sure your builder pays attention to drainage. It looks like the pool is downhill below the house so you don't want any drain water that comes from the house level to flow down into the pool. I hope your build goes well.. I'll be watching, wishing you...
