    Anyone recognize this pool plumbing part?

    Hello, I took my salt cell off to be soaked for maintenance and noticed this item, see attached photo, inside the inlet side of the salt cell ratings against the cell fins. Based on where the plumbing filters are, I suspect it's a part that came off somewhere after the main pool filters. Any...

    Organic stain cleaning via vitamin c

    I should have mentioned that I no longer use the chlorinator as we went to a SWG. I left the vitamin c on for a couple of minutes and it removed the stain.

    Gold line aquapure automated salt generator states check system cell missing

    Good evening, My neighbor's saltwater generator is giving the message "check system cell missing". I inspected the computer board and did not see any popped capacitors or anything that appeared burned out. Any suggestions? The system is an aquapure gold line automated system with a t-15 salt...

    salt reading showing -3.56

    Thank you James, that was exactly the issue. At some point the panel was switched over to metric. Thank you for your quick response and quick diagnoses. This is why I have been a member since 2009.

    Hayward Pure Swim SWG panel on the hot side.

    Hello all, Decided to switch over from ozone, nature 2, and inline chlorine feeder to a SWG. Texas heat was just too much on the CYA and FC and my set up could not keep above 2 ppm over a 2 day period. That being said, I had the SWG installed and Im in the process of getting everything up to...

    Pool Builder unresponsive - what are my choices?

    You could always try your local media's consumer advocey group. Most local media outlets have a consumer aid group of some sort and love to expose problems such as yours. Just a thought. Chris.

    Removed Nature 2 Sanitizer

    I have a Nature 2 housing and used it with a cartridge last year without any problems. Ill admit it did make the water softer. This year I did not replace the cartridge in fear that I would become a victim of staining after I just had my pool re-plastered with Pebble Tech. With the BBB method of...

    Pool Builder unresponsive - what are my choices?

    Depending on your pool builder, you may want to try and get the contact information for the CEO or president of operations. I had a similar problem with getting a warranted item corrected and had to bypass the warranty office and contact the vice president of the company. If you can PM me the...

    Hello mynew pool, At walmart you can find baking soda in the pool section or the baking goods section. Its the same stuff. Just be careful if you see it in the laundry soap aisle because these baking soda products are made for laundry and are listed as having fragrances etc. The cheapest of the...

    Strong water stream from polaris wall return

    Hello all, While swimming yesterday without the polaris cleaner attached to the wall, I noticed that water was expelling from the wall return much greater than the other pool returns.
