    Problem with my intellichlor IC40

    what is your chlorine percentage set to... if its on 20% then the cell light might only be on for about 12 minutes every hour. Try putting it on 100% to see if the cell light comes on, if it doesnt then something is wrong.

    Pumps and Deck Jets...

    I run two deck jets with 4 returns with a 1.5 superflo. It depends how high you want to run your deck jets. By playing with the return valves you can either run them all or isolate them to shoot 30 feet into the air.

    About to decide on SWG - Is Pentair IntelliChlor any good?

    I have the IC20 and so far so good, knock on wood. It will be my third season soon. As far as salt corrosion goes... there is high quality stainless steel screws and there is low quality. You will find out quickly which ones you have.

    Can I replace the LM2-15 cell for the LM2-24 or LM3-24 cell?

    I definately would not replace the cell until you get your pool under control, no algae, proper CYA, pH, FC/CC, and salt PPM numbers. Running with a smaller cell only means it has to generate Chlorine more often, which, in the long run will shorten the life of the cell, but you can always run...

    Feedback on colorlogic LED's

    Glad to see that you are somewhat happy with them. Did you get the second generation LED's as they are suppose to be brighter. The only color that is really dark for us is the red.... and it is more of a glow effect than a bright underwater light.

    BBB method in a hot tub / spa ?

    I just went a week between checking the chemicals in my hot tub. The only issue I had was my pH was a bit high and my bromine floater needed to be refilled... and my bromine level was a bit high. I just adjusted the floater to a lower level... added a little acid and some shock and I'm done. I...

    Dust storm dropped tons of dirt in the pool. How to clean?

    How about just letting all the dirt settle to the bottom by turning the pump off. And then vacumning the dirt collected on the bottom to waste.

    BBB method in a hot tub / spa ?

    You can use chlorine in your hot tub in the BBB method and you can use chlorine as a shock if you are using a bromine floater or the two step PArt A and Part B bromine method. There is a non-chlorine shock you can use with Bromine, that comes in a powdered form called MPS, but it is very...

    BBB method in a hot tub / spa ?

    The stories I have heard about Baqua is that its good for people who are sensitive to chlorine which apparently is pretty rare. and that it costs ALOT more and is ALOT harder to manage. People who are successful in keeping a BAQ pool usually do a partial change of their water every year and...

    BBB method in a hot tub / spa ?

    I heard that the main cause of problems in a BAQ pool was that the water and the filter sand needs to be changed once a season if not more, so you would think that frequent changes in your BAQ hot tub would be ok. I personally use the Bromine/Bromine floater system and shock with chlorine. Its...

    80% sure we have a leak ! HELP !

    You have an AG pool right, why not try walking around in your pool with your bare feet in a grid pattern to see if you can feel anything with the bottom of your feet (tears, nicks, weird bumps, rough spots) when you do, you can go under and check it out closeup. If you don't find anything then...

    80% sure we have a leak ! HELP !

    Are there any spots around your pool that are wet, that may help narrow down the area the leak is occuring. You can also try to let it leak down and see if you can locate you leak that way. I have heard that it is not a good idea to drain all your water since your liner could shrink and when you...

    How to avoid swamp on top of cover of IG pool in Spring?

    When the pool guys opened my pool this past spring, it had lots of leaves, dead bugs, green algae and crud on top of the winter cover. What they did first was to pump off as much water as they could get off. Then 2 guys started rolling up the winter cover from the deep end while one guy had a...

    Most efficient use of gas heater

    I agree, a combination of keeping your solar cover on, checking to see when you are going to have warm weather and direct sunlight, you should be able (with a decent sized heater) be able to bring your pool up to speed in 1 - 2 days.

    General SWG questions???

    The debate over bleach vs. SWG costs have been a hot topic here. From what can be gathered, based on your cell life and initial cost, electricity and salt, you can expect to pay somewhere around $20-25 per month to use an swg. For bleach,depending on the cost of bleach and size of you pool, you...
