    Going on vacation...

    Hello everyone, I will be leaving for vacation today until the 13th (already ran my plan by you guys in a previous thread). I know there are probably many factors at play, but can anybody shoot me a ballpark FC demand per day (if that’s the right term? How much chlorine is lost per day is what...

    Going on vacation...

    Yeah I will for sure! I’m always on top of it, which is why leaving it unattended makes me a little anxious!

    It’s 65-66 still. So, chilly, but still susceptible to algae!

    Going on vacation...

    Hi everyone, just wanted to run something by you. We’re going on vacation for 10 days, a couple weeks from now, and when thinking of possible solutions, this is what I ended up with: (Start with clean, perfectly balanced water chemistry. 24’ round agp) Day of departure -Bring FC to slam...

    As winter approaches...

    24’ above ground. No leaks, brand new liner last year, and didn’t have to add water at all the entire season. I was looking for a “hands-off” solution, as manual removal of water/snow/ice would be crazy tedious, and not at all “trouble free” lol! I guess I was looking for a concrete reason...

    As winter approaches...

    Yeah I must be missing something too, because putting together a simple pvc structure seems like the way to go. Those floats never made much sense to me because the water is drained to a level below the return, which would require at least a couple feet of additional height to raise the cover...

    As winter approaches...

    Hi all, As the season is nearing the end, I am trying to think of a way, or a procedure, to keep water from pooling on my winter cover. Last year so much accumulated, that I was left with less than half of the water in the pool that I closed with! The water on top of the cover pushed down on...

    Pool eating FC!

    I tested it using the tf-100 kit. The pool math app sometimes gives me drastically different suggested amounts, and I’m not sure why. It’s never been THIS big of a discrepancy, but I’ve always caught it & double checked before adding anything.

    Pool eating FC!

    Hi guys! Just wanted to say, again, how awesome this site is. It’s truly an invaluable resource! Anyway, after having my pool up for about a month now (24’ round AG 52”), with the help of this site, I’ve been keeping it maintained without the major hassle I went into it expecting. However...

    CYA still undetectable...

    Thanks for the quick reply, this place really is awesome!! Anyway, yeah, the dot seems to be a very subjective test to me! I ran it twice, first was 20, second was 30. Depending on the amount of sunlight (or lack thereof, i.e. shadow), I got a different number. Is this test more of a...

    CYA still undetectable...

    Hi guys, first post here, but I’ve been doing a TON of reading prior! Anyway, earlier this week I finished building (and filling!) my 24’ AG. I added a gallon of instant pool conditioner on wednesday, and am unable to get an accurate reading. Test strips suck, and the cheapo Walmart test kit...
