    We are currently receiving significant amounts of rain and it’s set to continue for at least the next week. It’s the first real rain we have had since the pool was built. Is there anything I need to do chemistry wise out of the ordinary? The cover is on and much of the rain seems to flowing from...

    Pool Maths Question

    Now that I have my ph down to a semi reasonable level I want to start getting my other levels in check. Pool maths is confusing me a little. I have all my pool’s info entered. It’s telling me for FC I should aim for 1-3 and cya of 70-80. This seems like a low FC level for that cya. The TFP...

    I'm wondering how hot is too hot to apply shotcrete? We are booked for Wednesday, but temps this week are quite high, with Wednesday expected to be by far the hottest. I trust my pool builder but would like to know at which point do I question the application. Thanks.

    Small Pool Build - Brisbane, Australia [emoji1037]

    After lurking for a few months I thought I'd start a thread as our pool build is about to start. I'm feeling fairly comfortable with the build process and I'm ready for the inevitable hiccups along the way. It was quite a process selecting a pool builder, but we're fairly comfortable with the...

    Test Kit - Australia

    Hi, our pool build will be starting early Feb and I have been looking into test kits, as we are keen to maintain our water ourselves. Would anyone be able to tell me if the linked test kit will be ok? It will be a small pool with a swg and apparently automatic acid dosing. It will be our first...
