    Pool Math - notes on results feature request

    It would be great if when entering in test results that were a notes field as well so that we don’t have to create two “separate entries” when really the notes are directly associated with the test results.

    Pool math - support custom ranges?

    Thanks all! @Leebo , glad to hear it's at least on the list. Good luck this year!

    Pool math - support custom ranges?

    First off, I love the app! I have an indoor pool though and some of the recommended ranges are outside where it seems to be really recommended: Chlorine too high - SWG, indoor pool It would be great if either the app had an “indoor” setting, or let us save custom ranges for each measurement...

    Chlorine too high - SWG, indoor pool

    Excellent, thanks all for your help!

    Chlorine too high - SWG, indoor pool

    @Flying Tivo, @ajw22 Great feedback, thanks! I was going to wait until next years opening (although an indoor pool - it's enclosure isn't ideal for winter), then as CYA drops I'll let it settle in around 30 and target 5 FC. When does CC become an issue? My CC is currently at around 0.5 (the...

    Chlorine too high - SWG, indoor pool

    Hey all (and I suppose I should at least try to page @chem geek ) 20k gal SWG, indoor pool. My last test results (TF-100): FC 12.5 CC 0.5 pH 7.2 TA 200 CH 300 CYA 65 SALT 3600 TEMP 79F With that out of the way, the FC had shot up from 5.0 to 12.5 after a few weeks of not being used, but with...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    Video of the bubbles here: solar-bubbles.mp4 Excuse the dirt and stains here - the pool is very old, and the heater has started dumping some rust out recently. After 6 hours running today we have about a 2°F rise in temp. It's been cloudy the later part of the day. On a sunny day I'd expect...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    I see the bubbles when the VRV activates (lots of air at first of course), but while running I see some very small bubbles still. When it first started up I noticed it more, but even after running a while I'm seem a few of them popping out. I'll try to get a video of them for reference...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    I don't think my 3 way valve has the pins... It does "click" as you turn it though, so I suppose I could probably figure it out that way if I pay attention. We'll see once I measure the pressure at the panels.

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    Thanks for the replies! We got everything put up there this weekend. Photo attached here. I have a few more things to do finish securing it, but it's largely done. Ignore the water in the photo. The supply line wasn't welded for some reason so it blew open as soon as I turned it on to test...

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Thanks all! Raypak has confirmed they think it's from the header as well, but also that it's not worth repairing (due to the age and what else could be going on in it) and we'd be better off replacing it. We'll add that to the list :)

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Yep... Magnet sticks to the block. Also, the magnet picks up most of the flakes.

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Contacted Raypak to see if they have any recommendations, hopefully short of replacing the whole unit. If it's the heat exchanger it almost seems like it'd be worth it to replace the whole unit, as that looks to cost about $1200 + install cost - and who knows about the rest of it. I haven't...

    Solar Install - Pressure question

    Hi all... The previous homeowner had 4 "SunHeater" 2' x 20' panels they left behind, but not hooked up. The system is plumbed for them, so I figured I'd try getting them going again. I did a quick test with a garden hose to see if they were leaking, and the water was going through them without...

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Unfortunately there is no bypass for the heater. Not sure how exactly the metal pipes from the heater are connected to the PVC, it looks threaded in the photos, but who knows if it's cemented/otherwise permanently attached. If it were easy enough to disconnect I could put a temporary connection...

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    I’d say pretty darn old. Best case is something like 1998 from what I could gather.

    Hard brown/rusty flakes?

    Any ideas what these are/what’s causing them? This is the first time I’ve really had the pool open since owning it. I’m not sure if these may be coming from the heater (haven’t experimented yet). I can see the flakes inside the SWG, but that is plumbed directly after the heater, so it could be...

    Indoor Pool - Dehumidification System

    Great, thanks for responding! I did some fan research and you're probably right about it cylcing the air quickly. I found that the room I have could easily be turned over in about 10 minutes with just an 18" fan, a 24" one was able to do it in about 6 minutes. I'm thinking that with a...

    Faux Indoor Pool - Renovation Recommendations

    Sorry, I didn't see that I had some replies here. The concrete is slightly worse shape than the original photo lets on. There are a few cracks in the piece near the skimmer, and one of the "sections" on the right side of the pool has settled about 2". It's not apparent in the photo because the...

    Faux Indoor Pool - Renovation Recommendations

    We had a local pool company come out and provide and estimate to re-plaster the pool, as well as other options: replace the decking/coping (and adding drainage, about 1700sqft of concrete to remove/replace), replace the plumbing with 2" pipes, and replace all the pool equipment. Their total came...

    Indoor Pool - Dehumidification System

    @Rollercoastr Very nice set up! I have a few questions if you have a moment... Do you know what you're using for a fan/what kind of airflow you get out of it, or better put, how many times you cycle the air in the room with it? You only run it while swimming, or do you have some kind of...

    @CaptainCannonball FYI, I looked in to it and the covers were made by Spectrum Aquatics.

    Faux Indoor Pool - Renovation Recommendations

    Thanks! I'm not sure exactly what the covers are (it's 2 pieces and they came with the house), the long one is fairly heavy though. I can take it off the pool myself, but it's not the easiest thing to do and there isn't a great place to hide it right now (I have an idea though!) The pool and...

    Faux Indoor Pool - Renovation Recommendations

    I'd love to do that! This was actually one of my first ideas for what to do in there when I first started thinking about it last year... That is, until I priced them out. The big brand/originator seems to be NanaWall, but there are a few others that make them too. IIRC, to cover about a 16ft...

    Indoor Pool - Dehumidification System

    Never heard of a jumper vent before, thanks for that! I'm wondering if mid-summer the fan would do any good with the humidity. Average RH values for MA (from a quick google search) looks to be in the 70s during normal pool season early morning, and 60s by afternoon. Not sure yet what we'd want...

    Faux Indoor Pool - Renovation Recommendations

    We've had some hot days, but I was waiting for it to get a bit more consistently warm out before getting it up to temp (next few days we have some lows in the high 40s/low 50s). The area above the drop ceiling doesn't look so pretty right now, but it could be improved on once the lattice is...

    Faux Indoor Pool - Renovation Recommendations

    Heater is natural gas. 333k BTU. At local rates I figure it costs about $6/hr to run it and it will raise the pool temp about 2°/hour. I ran it for about 5 hours last week to test and the 2°/hour seemed to be about right, I started at 56°, and end up at 67° after about 5.5hr. As we...

    Faux Indoor Pool - Renovation Recommendations

    @Arizonarob: The area as you step in to the pool has some "hot tub" jets (sorry, not sure what they're called), but it's just the normal pool water going through them. It's not clear to me where/how, but the electrical in the room indicates there used to be a spa somewhere. Might be interesting...

    Indoor Pool - Dehumidification System

    I'm in a similar situation. These are some good ideas. I am tempted to try a remote controlled skylight, and possibly a fan of some kind... I was thinking about using a greenhouse fan (these things move a lot of air). On a different forum I was dissuaded from doing this with the fear being that...
