    No power.....until Saturday!

    My Genrac 7500 gummed up awhile back. I pulled the carb and soaked it in clean gas overnight. Then I blew it out with compressed air. Drained the tank and added fresh gas. Works a charm now, but I am converting it to propane and just ordered a propane carb for it.

    Is This Algae?

    The vac will hook to it if its the large skimmer. Intex Deluxe Pool Maintenance Kit Model 58947E is the skimmer and vac Intex Deluxe Maintenance Kit Model 58959E is just the vac. You unhook the skimmer and hook this one up to the intake. You can Google these for the best price

    Is This Algae?

    Intex makes a vacuum that hooks up to the intake screen. I have the deluxe maintenance kit that comes with the over-wall skimmer and the vac hooks to it (hard to find right now). The new style they have don't have the skimmer and its hard to keep these pools clean without one, so if you get it...

    Is This Algae?

    I am running my SWCG 2 hours a day at a CYA of 60 and maintaining a FC of 7.5 - 8 ppm. Along with getting the pool in balance you do need to vacuum. The Intex pumps/filters that come with these pools just don't do well :)

    Could This Be The Start Of Something?

    Use the Pool calculator to determine the shock value you should use. [Edit] I show you should be shocking at 24 ppm FC for 7000 gal pool at 60 CYA

    Could This Be The Start Of Something?

    Continue shocking. Try to test it hourly or every few hours today.

    Leak over winter

    Hi Mike, I read a post about this very thing a few days ago. the advice was to clean as much as you could from the pool, then you would have to brush heavily to get it circulated. If I remember right it it could be circulated that way. Good luck.
