    Hayward C2030 internal pipes leaking

    I've had a C2030 filter for a couple of years now and noticed when I was blowing out the filter last year that there seemed to be a pin-sized hole on the black outlet pipe at the bottom and there was water blowing out at the connecting from out outlet elbow and the wall. While getting the pool...

    Nope because I haven't paid the final amount yet....

    Diving board tilt?

    Just remember, it wasn't my line :) Any suggestions on where to get a bumper to raise it up or should I just get something that won't rot over time with the weather?

    Diving board tilt?

    They never took the diving board off the stands, they just re-concreted them into the ground when it was setting. Is it unsafe to have it tilting toward the pool or should I have him rip it out and start over?

    Diving board tilt?

    I have a 20x40 inground concrete pool with a diving board. Last week I had the entire concrete decking around the pool ripped up and replaced with a brand new concrete pad (the old one was chipping and cracked everywhere from years of prior homeowners neglect). Before the work was done, my...

    I’ve been a customer of their’s for many years and their customer service is stellar. I would email them for fastest contact as calling them has been spotty.

    It uses a Bluetooth app. Kinda buggy for programming cleaning modes but it works.

    Dolphin Supreme M Series Owner’s Club

    I just gotta say, since buying the 500 my pool bottom has never been cleaner! It’s amazing how well the 500 picks up dirt/debris in a short period of time. Soooooo happy I went with the 500 over other models.

    What's your current pool temp?

    After running in the upper 70’s, a couple of cool days and rain pushed it back down to 71 this morning.

    Wireless monitoring

    Thanks. And for the Stenner, is it better if I inject all of the liquid chlorine at one time or should i spread it out? Based on what I lose per day, about 2-3ppm on warm/sunny days, I put in about a gallon each night so should I dump the whole gallon in at once or should I do a half at...

    Wireless monitoring

    I’m going to be away for two weeks for business but is there any reliable wireless monitoring system that people recommend to keep an eye on chlorine while I’m gone? I’ve read that pHin is unreliable for a cya of 50 but wasn’t sure if anything else worked for folks. If my fc gets low I can...

    What's your current pool temp?

    Water temp in northeast finally up to around 77 and on swim days I jack up the heater to 83 and it usually holds a few days before dropping back. Expecting a warm streak next week so hopefully it’ll hold the temperature better.

    In SLAM I trust...

    I tested CH this morning and it was 250 so that should be ok. I added another gallon of liquid stabilizer and will take a reading tomorrow morning to make sure the CYA raised up by about 9 (per the calculator) then I'll watch what happens to FC during the day.

    In SLAM I trust...

    I'm continuing the SLAM and making sure to keep the FC elevated at the appropriate level. I've been brushing my walls a couple of times a day but don't see anything anywhere at this point. I picked up the K-2006C at the beginning of the season and have found it to be invaluable. I checked the...

    In SLAM I trust...

    I decided this year that I would give the SLAM methodology a try when opening my pool instead of spending hundreds of dollars on different chemicals 'recommended' by my local pool store. When I pulled the cover, I could see bottom even though it was green. My initial levels were CYA 0, Alk...

    Hayward 400k Heater First Impressions

    There was no Raypak dealer or official installer in my entire area. Pretty hard to buy a product if you can’t get support if there isn’t anyone to fix it if there are issues.

    Hayward 400k Heater First Impressions

    A couple of months ago I decided I wanted to add a natural gas pool heater to my 20x40 pool to be able to extend its use by a couple of months. After conducting a lot of research, including getting some great feedback from this forum, I finally selected the Hayward 400k BTU heater. There are...

    I was just hoping that the latest models, with I’m assuming the latest software, wouldn’t have suffered the same issue. It doesn’t appear to affect functionality at all as my m500 is keeping the pool amazingly clean.

    Dolphin Supreme M Series Owner’s Club

    Like others, I just unboxed my m500 and after every clean using the micro filters, the cartridge/filter full warning light turns red. There’s no way it’s full as my pool floor is clean so I’m not sure if it’s a software bug or something else. I’ve pushed reset a number of times, which resets...

    Stenner pump/Liquidator for large pool

    Your setup looks great!! To inject the chlorine into the pool, can I just drill into the return and use a clamp or is there a special type of PVC I should use to insert? I'd rather not have to cut the PVC if I can help it but drilling is fine (I'm always afraid I won't be able to get Humpty...

    Stenner pump/Liquidator for large pool

    Thanks for the info. I was looking into this: https://www.amazon.com/AutoPilot-75004-Stenner-Pump-Tank/dp/B00XD7X5ZE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1527518111&sr=8-1&keywords=stenner+pool+pump+tank which I've seen other people mention in the past because it's an all-in-one unit, pros and cons to that...

    Stenner pump/Liquidator for large pool

    I live up in the northeast with a 20x40 concrete pool that sits in the sun all day. Even though I've had this house/pool for 10 years, up until this season I've always used the puck method to chlorinate my pool (I drain almost 1/2 my pool each fall to winterize it). But now thanks to everyone...

    CYA Test

    Hi guys, just looking for clarification on my pool CYA test. Before opening my pool I wanted to get a reading of the cya. I picked up a cya test kit and performed the test. After following the instructions, the sample never got cloudy and I was able to constantly see dot. I did confirm that...

    Max-e-therm vs Hayward

    This was too bad. After being convinced by everyone, including my research done online, I was ready to move forward with the Raypak but there are no dealers in the area still in business or service people from their site with good reputations (using both the Rheem and raypak’s dealer locator). I...

    Max-e-therm vs Hayward

    Thanks. The more I look into the Haywards the more I get scared of them (being loud, breaking down more often, etc.). I was looking at the Rheem's but the 406's look huge!! Its looks like the compressor I have for my central air unit, but this will be sitting right next to my pool. What...

    Why would you say that? Just looking for specifics before cutting a check this weekend and getting the ball rolling.
