    Pebble tec install issue?

    Hello, My new pool was plastered and filled back in December. Per the instructions, I brushed it thoroughly 2x per day for the first week. I immediately noticed some spots/stains, but the builder said it would probably go away after a while. Not only did they not go away, more...

    Filling a 15 gallon chlorine tank

    Thanks for the suggestions. I am not sure why I didn't think of siphoning it. I will have to see if I can find a way to easily elevate the container above the tank.

    Filling a 15 gallon chlorine tank

    I have an automatic liquid chlorine feeder with a 15 gallon rola-chem tank . I found a local pool store (pinchapenny) that sells 2.5 gallon containers of LC. I bought one yesterday to give it a try. I found that my tank is awkward to fill because of the built in mount for the pump (see...

    I called them, and they said nothing needs to be done to winterize the system. They said the system is designed to withstand winter conditions as long as freeze guards are active on the connected pump. In fact, they said the warranty covers any freeze damage if it occurs. They did recommend...

    ORP system winterization

    Hello, My ORP system was just installed yesterday. I live in Dallas. It gets below freezing occasionally, but the winters are relatively mild. Do I need to do anything to protect it, or is the built in freeze protection that gets the pumps running good enough? Thanks, Jason.

    ORP system help needed.

    My last pool was salt. It was going pretty well until the first salt cell went out. My next 2 cells only lasted a little over a year each even though I keep a close eye on my overall chemistry (ph, chl, cya, alk, calcium, salt, etc). That's when I decided to abandon the salt pool, and the...

    ORP system help needed.

    Yikes! This is my 3rd pool that I have maintained myself (that last one was similar size). I figured there would some more involvement with winterizing and spring setup, but I was hoping to hear that these ORP systems are great and contribute to a lower maintenance pool overall. That's how...

    ORP system help needed.

    Hello, I am having an ORP system installed in a couple of days. I have a decision to make, and I need some help. I am trying to decide if I want a 15gal liquid chlorine tank or a cal hypo erosion auto feeder. I understand some the pros and cons of the different chlorine types (liquid shelf...
