    Tons of rain, odd test results

    So in SoCal we have been having a lot of rain. Tested pool today, FC is fine but I am getting low salt on my aqualink at 2200 ppm. Ph is 7.8, but the TA dropped to 40ppm. CH dropped to 425ppm from 600+ I assume from the rain. So my CSi is fine with TA @40 and ph @7.8 but is my TA too low...

    Really getting Frustrated with CYA

    I have been struggling with CYA for 2 years. It seems no matter how much I put into the pool I am "ALWAYS" around 40-50PPM. Perhaps I am just stupid and can't get this test done correctly but it's the most unforgiving test I think we can run for our pools. My largest issue is with the test...

    Jandy pump making squeaking sound at start up and shutdown

    This has been going on for a few months, right at start up and shutdown I get this squeaking sound for about 2-3 seconds. Jandy is telling me it’s normal, I asked okay, then why did it not do this for the first 2years? Any thoughts?

    Coming up on year 2 am I still doing this correctly

    FC= 7 to 8 Ph= 7.2-7.8, TA = 70 CH=460 Salt=3200 Csi= -0.01 to -0.6 (at 7.8 csi is -0.01, adding acid brings ph back and csi to -0.06) Note that my ph rise goes from 7.2-7.8 in a week, normal? Also should I still be bringing back to 7.2? If not, I will be adding acid 2x per week, should I...

    New plaster, question on brush marks

    My sister had her pool replastered, they were brushing as required but it appears the black plastic on the top of the brush left a few marks on the seat edge of the spa, any suggestions for removing the black marks? Plaster is about 2 wks old, yep, I told them to be very careful, lol.

    Pool covers and spa spillovers

    So just cut the pool cover, works great at retaining heat, one issue, how are you all dealing with the spa spill over cycle? I have a raise spa so the water fall pours on top of the cover. I guess I could cut out the section where the water fall hits the pool but won't this negate having the...

    Water @52 degrees, is the swg still making chlorine?

    At what point do I kno if it's too cold, I did notice the system is showing salt PPM dropped. I read that's caused by cold water. Can I assume if it's maintaining chlorine levels it's still working. Just did not know if there is a point to shut it off and manually add chlorine. Thx.

    So I have a cartridge filter but the city required the filter drain plumbed to a cleanout regardless of whether it was a DE or cartridge filter. So I recently noticed that the drain valve was in the open position a couple months ago and closed it. No water was exiting at the clean out as the...

    Pre-disolving CYA

    Tried something new, put cya in a 5 gallon bucket and filled it with water, 6 hours later there is still a bunch at the bottom. Also this stuff never seems to disolve 100%. I can still see tiny little particles floating in the water. So when is it considered 100% disolved so i can pour into...

    My friend has a pentair system, with automation, easytouch. How is this set up to schedule a spa spill over run, pool suction/spa return. They want to run this in place of the make up valve/spa bypass valve as the water only dribbles over the spill over when through the bypass. Can this be...

    Poolmaster testing kit vs TAylor

    Just for kicks i tried the poolmaster kit the PB gave us. Ph was off and no color really matched, guessing it was closer to 7.6, but 7.4 and 7.8 looked miles away? The ta result was 100ppm, my taylor kit show 70ppm. Scary.

    CSI Pool Math

    Okay perhaps it's been too many years since college, and I was bad in math anyhow. But this whole -0.6 or .06 is confusing to follow which direction it going. So I made this chart which I assume is correct so I can easily see which direction I am heading. I always associate the number on...
