    Hello out there! I have a problem that reared its ugly head today. Today the power went off and then quickly came back on. Later I noticed the pump was not running on the pool. So I tried to turn it on and nothing. Later I got the idea to see if low speed would work and it did. So, I...

    New pool balancing woes

    asking for a friend.... Chlorine level is 0

    I don't think she has tested that quickly to know if chlorine is a 0 after 15 minutes. I will get her to but what type issue could it mean? Will also tell her to do the SLAM method in its entirety

    Hi there! My friend put a pool in and is trying to get their water balanced. They had some issues with getting the pool filled with water quickly and their water turned green. I gave her the instructions for the SLAM procedure. She put in 16 gallons of 10% bleach and was still getting a...

    Question about ladder installation

    I have been looking and found some 6 inch anchors but they talk like they are more for volleyball or basketball poles. They also say not suitable for salt water pools. For some reason??

    Question about ladder installation

    Hi there. We put our pool in last year and just now getting around to putting the ladder in the deep end. We have brass anchor sockets that do not have a metal channel that connects the two. Do we need that? How far down do we need to dig to ensure they are set in concrete well enough...

    First test results

    Thanks so much for your reply. I will have to add more, because it is either 3200 or 3300 for my salt cell (I'll have to look). Should I get my salt level right before I turn on the salt cell?
