    You're right. I feel like there towards the end they were selling me one product just to sell me another. My pool is back in shape now, and I am paying closer attention to my chemistry and my equipment. making some updates to correct my filter issues this weekend.

    Weekend Project-replacing old shut off vavles, adding service unions for the future and installing a flometer.

    Hello all. I have some old galvanized valves I will be replacing this weekend. Due to their age they are sucking air and effecting my filters efficiency.

I just used the pool math app and my test kit to make sure my water was balanced and sanitized to keep my algae bloom from coming back. The pool cleared up in time for the wedding, and was...

    Thank you. I have ran my pump in filtration non stop throughout this whole ordeal. About three weeks now until I shut it off last night for the flocking process. I backwashes it before I started, and replaced my prairie gauge. I have seen no change in pressure, which leads me to believe my...

    I understand what you both are saying. As I stated before these procedures were taken in a desperate attempt to clear the pool up quickly, as I will have 100 people here for a wedding on Saturday. I don't think flocking is the magical answer to my problem. My question about the flock, and about...

    Hello all. I am new to this forum and still learning. I have an older in ground roughly 28K gallons. I have a hayward pump and sand filter. I used a local pool guy to install a new vynil liner and maintain my pool while we settled in our new old home. House is almost 100 years old. I took over...
