    Pool Heater Banging Sound

    My pool heater will make a loud banging sound on occasion indicating that the water inside is boiling.

    Venting Stenner Tank

    What is the best way to vent my Stenner Acid and Chlorine tanks? I initially used my pump line fail/overflow line in my chlorine setup as vent, but given that my pumps are enclosed in a box, It makes for a very corrosive environment. This I especially discovered when I set up my acid setup...

    Question for the guys who buried their chlorine tanks in 100F+ environments

    How much of a temperature drop do you experience in a sandy environment 4 feet below surface where it is 100F+ above? Or have you measured the temperature of your chlorine during the day when its 100F+ above? I didn't have the option to dig down and I did a test over my first month with...

    AA In Floor Valve repair

    Before I start taking stuff apart I was wondering if anybody can tell me how the AA QuickStop is connected to the Upper Housing? From the pictures it almost looks like it is supposed to be glued in. Is that the case? Mine is leaking between the Upper Housing and the Quickstop.

    When to ad chlorine (Stenner Pump)

    Just bought a Stenner Pump and have it currently set it up to ad chlorine in the middle of the night. I loose 3 ppm per day, so that’s what I ad every night. Question is, should I spread out the distribution to during the day as well so my variation in ppm is less? Right now I swing between...

    Jandy Valve Partly Open

    If you look at the return lines in the 3 picture, the one going to the spa is partly open by turning the valve a couple of degrees clockwise. This is how I was told to set it, but since the flow is left to right in the horizontal pipe, wouldn’t it be better to turn it a few degrees counter...

    Slamming Target

    Sorry if this has been answered before, but is the recommended Slamming Target a max or a min for the process? My target is 31 PPM and my pool eats 9 PPM during daylight hours. In a perfect world I would ad every hour, but if that is not possible should I attempt to stay above?

    High Demand Pool with Spa and stream

    Not just getting started, but my first experience with a somewhat high maintenance pool. My Pool consists of a fairly large Spa overflowing into the pool via a stream/waterfalls.

    TFP FC Targets seem high compared to other references

    Why is it that TFPs FC Targets seem high compared to other references? I have seen other recommendations saying to keep FC levels at 7.5% of CYA levels. With my CYA of 50% that would mean a target of 3.75PPM, but TFP recommends 6-8PPM. Also, if I bring a sample of my Pool water into Leslies @ 7...

    So my new pool has an inline chlorinator that has sprung a leak in the housing. I will need to either replace it or permanently bypass it. The current chlorinator is plumbed differently than I have seen before, so I need to decide what to do if I am to replace it. As you can see from the...

I am having a problem with the Pool Pump (Pentair IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pump) tripping the breaker (15A Dual Pole AE-2936) about once every week.
