    Hi there, I will make my leak finding story short because I tried many ways to find it...similar to what you have done thus far. So now, the short version: I ensured that the water was clear with the proper chemical levels along with a high chlorine content to ensure that my water will not...

    Robot Cleaner Gets Stuck on Main Drains

    I purchased this from Amazon for about $60 (white, $51 for blue color): Zodiac 5830 Blue Unibridge Main Drain Cover Replacement. It is not 100% effective because my Oasis Z5 kicks the cover off the main drain...on the average one time over three months. I found it acceptable for my use.

    Why must FC be below 5 if CYA is zero?

    I had a cloudy, green tinged pool. I added bleach a couple of days ago and vacuumed the pool. It is clear now. After testing, the results are: FC=10 CYA~0 TA>300 pH=8.2 Hence, the question that started this post. I do not plan to swim until the end of May. Am I going to have any issues...

    In the Basic Pool Care, I read the following: "When CYA is really zero you should not bring the FC level above 5." My question is why? :? Thank you.
