    Iron well filled please help

    Sorry for all the questions. Can you explain how the auto cover affects the pool water. I was told to open the cover a few hours a day minimum. I have been letting it open most of the day and evening. I notice when I open it the water looks different. More daul if that makes sense. Also I...

    I also just found an article here on forums about run time. We do run our pool very warm in the summer. I made a post this morning questioning SWG. Once I get some feedback and order a system this is something I'll have to keep an eye on and adjust

    Question. Searching the forum for different answers I find that everyone runs their pools a different amount of hours. We were started out with an ionizer and ozone. The only way I could somewhat keep the copper consistent was to run 24/7. recently switching to chlorine we've continued to run...

    Hello. I'm still battling. I just got back from a 10 day vacation. I had a friend stay that took care of home dogs and pool. Gave testing instructions but it must not have gone well. She was also using the pool. I came home to 0 FC 0 CYA I'm assuming from adding the sequestering it depleted...

    Iron well filled please help

    You're right. It must have been the sunlight. They're still there. Added some more metal magic. Since everything is testing well I'm going to pray the sequestering keeps me good through the summer. One of the moderators mentioned switching out water and dealing with everything when colder...

    Question. When I was using shock I was told not to use the auto cover. Using bleach only while doing a slam and I able to use the cover when there is rain.

    I'm I'm re-reading all the information. I was right to start the slam. I promise I'm not a nut. This is overwhelming dealing with all these problems. hopefully iron stays sequestered and this is my last issue 🤞

    Iron well filled please help

    After putting more thought I just started slam again. Thinking anytime the CC is above .5 this is what you do to bring it down. Is slam basically the same thing as a weekly shock treatment?

    Iron well filled please help

    Hello. Idk if it was the rain I was letting in the pool or if I got algae that I cannot see from letting the chlorine go to zero for the iron treatment. My water is cloudy and all my numbers are off and I cant get stable. CC is also high. I was using the rain to help my cya but I'm not...

    As I'm doing this protocol we're getting a lot of rain. Crazy wet weather for us this time of year. Thankfully I need it right now. Its costing for more bleach and ph but I'm letting the pool get as much rain as possible to continue to bring my cya down from current 50. I have some more...

    Thank you. I calculated that to a quart of chlorine per my size. I'm assuming I'll do this process like I did the slam. Add every hour until level is reached and then do overnight test to see if held. My pool looks absolutely amazing. It's insane. We were sold the pool with an ionizer and...
