    Major flooding...POOL DIRTY BROWN

    Is is possible to FLOC with a cartridge filter? Can one just remove the 4 filters from the container and let the water run to the yard? I am not sure, but I don't think there is a way for me to bypass the filter in my plumbing?

    Jandy Aquapure 1400 Error Codes 125 and 194 .... HELP!

    So over the last 24 hours or so, the swg has been working intermittently. When I get the error codes, go out to the box and press the reset button. Sometimes this works and sometimes it does not. Multiple presses of the reset button to get the system to work sounds like a software problem?

    So this is my second summer with our new pool. I learned a lesson today and will be cleaning the cartridge filters more often! It took me 3 hours to hose these puppies off and get them to flow clear water. The pool builder told me to clean the filter when the pressure reached about 20 PSI on...

    So the pool is about 1 year old now. I have been maintaining to TFP standards since the beginning. I noticed at the end of last summer there was one brown spot on the bottom of the pool that would not sweep away. I did not do anything about it. Now they are all over the pool. These brown...

    Monitor my SLAM

    Well.. its been a week and the water is clear now... I never measured any CC during the SLAM. I think it is just yard dirt and dust that has blown in the pool that made it cloudy. There is still quite a bit of dust when I sweep, but the water is clear. My FC is still a bit high at 11, but I...

    Help.. Hurricane Michael Cloudy pool

    Do you think that this SLAM is required... There is no leaf or organic debris in the pool... it is just runoff from the yard due to the heavy rains... I do not suspect any algae... Is the SLAM still necessary? Thanks

    Permits how would you handle it?

    Permits were pulled before construction. But it looks like they did not have the pool ground bond inspected...so they need an engineering letter that they are charging me for to prove the pool was grounded. (I saw the work done). They are also charging me as you can see in the original post...
