    Yellow Tint in Deep End

    I’m happy to report that the water was clear this AM. I put some polyfill in the skimmers. They didn’t seem to have a color to them, but the water is clear nonetheless. Thanks again for the help!

    SWG readout doesn’t change when powered on

    I think I found the issue. When I removed the cell I could see some discoloration where the cable enters the cell. I removed the plate and found this mess. Looks like it is time to get a new one. :rolleyes:

    SWG readout doesn’t change when powered on

    The cell is around 3 years old. I replaced the motherboard in the box about 4 years ago. Plug looks good and was seated well. Will try that next. I’m about to pull it and see how the cells look.

    In order from the salt reading: 0 86 32.2 0.00 50p -0 AL-0 r 1.59 t-15 All of the numbers stay the same when I hear the click whereas they usually start changing.

    SWG readout doesn’t change when powered on

    When I power on my SWG the voltage and other readouts do not change. Salt level reads as 0 although I have verified the salt level in my pool to be the optimal amount 3200. I tried calibrating, but the number never started high and went down, just stayed at 0. I haven’t taken the cell off to...

    Yellow Tint in Deep End

    Thanks @jblizzle I will put some polyfill in there and see if I can’t get it filtered out.

    Yellow Tint in Deep End

    Diamond Crystal yellow bag. It had that tint to it prior to adding the salt. It’s odd that it would just now start having that tint with that water source. It is the same one we have used for 9 years. If it is iron, is it something the filter can catch without me adding anything else to the...

    Yellow Tint in Deep End

    Our pool just finished filling today (municipal water) after a new liner installation. Ever since it had a good amount of water in the deep end it has had a yellow/green tint to it. The shallow end looks normal. I have attached a pic of salt in the deep end. You can see the main drain and salt...

    CH Test Purple from the Start

    I just tested it the regular way and it turned blue from purple with 1 drop of #12.

    CH Test Purple from the Start

    The first time that I ran the test I used #10 and that’s then it turned purple as soon as #11 was added. I then read on here that if that happens to add 5 drops of #12 to start and then #10 and #11. When I did that it turned blue as soon as #11 was added.

    CH Test Purple from the Start

    Okay, just tested the tap water and the same thing happened. No sequestrant has been added. I had the tap water tested at the pool store to check for metals and all of them came back as 0. The deep end of the pool does have a green tint to it. Has had that since starting to fill on Tuesday. The...

    CH Test Purple from the Start

    Once I added R-0011L the solution turned purple. I started over and added 5 drops of R-0012 to start and then the R-0010 and R-0011L and the solution turned blue. Pool water is fresh and no chems added as the liner was just replaced. Water source is municipal. Did I do something incorrectly...

    First SLAM not sure if things are working right.

    Welcome! :wave: It sounds like you have done your homework and are on the right track. What test kit are you using? Can you post some pictures of your pool so we can see how things look? This will also help you see how things progress each day. Keep up with the SLAM and let the filter do its...

    Lots of water loss in my IG vinyl liner pool

    Our liner is being replaced now. The cost for the labor was well worth it for me to not have to deal with measuring, ordering replacement parts (eyes, gaskets, faceplates, etc.), minor floor/wall repairs, hauling off the old liner, etc. Also, in our case, and although a rare occurrence, the...

    Now what?

    Yes, time to SLAM since you lost more than 1ppm overnight and have CC above 0.5ppm. Has all of the CYA dissolved? If so, I would give it 24 hours before relying on the test results.

    Wrong Size Liner...Again

    Good tip. Thanks!

    Wrong Size Liner...Again

    The multi-port valve is set to waste, so the ground water is bypassing the filter. I am not sure regarding the seam to seam measurement. Just a guess here, but the liner company knew what the seam to seam measurement should have been, but when measured it came up 6 inches shorter than expected...

    Wrong Size Liner...Again

    I am not entirely sure, but the pool company took measurements and submitted those to the liner company. They did not go off a model to my knowledge. They said it would be custom made to fit those measurements.

    Wrong Size Liner...Again

    The pump has started leaking a little bit. The best I can tell it is leaking from just behind where the outlet is on the pump. There are four bolts, I believe, that join the motor to the rest of the pump. It seems to be leaking from around that area. Is that one of the seals that would fail? Is...

    Wrong Size Liner...Again

    The manufacturer agreed the liner was cut wrong after the first go. We are waiting for them to call back now for this go around, but the pool company confirmed the seam to seam measurement still is 6 inches too short. I am not sure. I don't have a desire to turn this into a legal issue, I was...

    Wrong Size Liner...Again

    The pool company took the measurements and provided them to the liner company. The pool company confirmed their measurements after the first liner did not fit. The liner company had them measure from seam to seam in certain areas of the pool and they (liner company) that they cut it wrong. The...

    Wrong Size Liner...Again

    The pool company ordered our new liner late April. It took 3 weeks to come in. They put it in on a Saturday and came back Monday to cut in everything. Told me at that time the liner didn’t fit. Friday of that week (5/24) they ordered a second liner. They confirmed with the manufacturer (Merlin)...

    Deep end is green - filling pool

    I had a sample of the fill water tested at the pool store to check for metals. All of them came back 0ppm. They said it was likely due to the low alkalinity (36ppm). I have not tested it using my TF-100 yet, but I will once it is full. Can that cause the green water? I am at a standstill...

    New Liner Doesn't Fit

    Title says it all. The pool company came a little over 3 weeks ago and measured the pool for a new liner. The new liner came in this past Wednesday and they came on Saturday to install it. They got it hung with some liner lock in certain places, sand bags against the steps, and started filling...

    CYA Sense or Nonsense

    Just commenting to add another +1 for the Puritech CYA purchased on Amazon. I went searching on TFP before ordering to see if others had good or bad experiences. I was a bit leery due to the mislabeling incident that was reported, but ordered anyway due to other positive reviews. I received my...

    Deep end is green - filling pool

    Okay, I’ll give it a few days once the system is back up and running before adding any sequestrant to see if the filter takes care of it first. I’ll also setup the bucket with polyfill to fill the remainder of the pool. Thanks!

    Deep end is green - filling pool

    Everything should be cut in today and then I can finish filling the pool. Then I can tackle this. I wonder why I haven’t had this issue previously. I have been using the same water source to fill the pool for 8 years now. It it possible the filter will capture it when I can finally run it and...

    Deep end is green - filling pool

    Okay, let me make sure I understand correctly. Since I have a SWG I should get the Purple Stuff and dose the pool based on its recommendations. Then, that will bind the iron to the water and remove the green tint which will also prevent other iron related issues (i.e. staining, etc.). Is that...
