    Where is my chlorine going?

    So I think SLAM is in order? FC was at 7 last night and 4.4 this morning. ? The water is cloudy this morning. Can I say I’m super nervous about that process!!?

    Where is my chlorine going?

    My FC was 5.4 10 minutes after adding the bleach. I have the stabilizer in the sock! I assume I should recheck first thing in the morning?

    Where is my chlorine going?

    Thanks so much for the help! Can I use Shock (I have that) or do I have to use liquid chlorine/bleach?

    Which Aquabot Rover for my AGP? UPDATE!! **PICS INCLUDED!**

    Yes there are 2 sides to the bag. And it's pretty gross after cleaning. I let it run for 2 hours and then start it again. It's almost like it avoids certain parts of the pool maybe?

    Where is my chlorine going?

    We opened the pool early this year because of Covid and we were home and had time. We’ve definitely had a spring here in NC with lower temperatures and rainy weather. I have added liquid chlorine multiple times and it never goes up! Here are my readings from this morning: pH <7 TA 40 FC & CC...

    Which Aquabot Rover for my AGP? UPDATE!! **PICS INCLUDED!**

    “Rosie” came to live with us about 2 weeks ago and honestly she isn’t really up to snuff IMO. She runs for 2 hours but there’s lots of little dirt left. She gets the big pieces but not the little pieces.

    Dolphin s50 VS. Aquabot

    I think her name is going to be Rosie- but I’m not ? certain of that yet. I can’t get her to go over my main drain in the middle. ?‍♀️

    Wow- thanks for the link! Since I have the K2006-C but have no need for the salt test, should I get the T-100 regents?

    Expired Reagents

    Hello All- We just opened our pool this week. I dumped 2 gallons of liquid chlorine in and tested. The FC was non-existent . I noticed after that the DPD powder is expired as well as some of the other reagents in the kit. Where is the best place to purchase new ones? I have the Taylor...

    Recommendations? Is the Dolphin really worth the price difference? We have a 30ft round.

    Aqualuminator Pool Light

    How hard are they to install? We haven't opened the pool for the season so the water level is already below the return. The pool store quoted $299 for light and install. I am super nervous when it comes to anything liner related. We had a pool wall issue last year, had to replace the liner...

    Liner replacement and new water

    LOL! No worry there. My teenagers don't want to help do anything! Plus, we've had a pool since they were small so they know not to mess with the stuff. Our pool store doesn't have liquid chlorine, only powder shock which is what I was using but kimkats suggested liquid chlorine. I've checked...

    Liner replacement and new water

    My twins are 13 so I’m not too worried about them getting into it accidentally. My husband had me put it under our house. We have a high crawl space (like can walk in). The chlorine and other chemicals stay in the barn. PH is still in a roller coaster. One day too high next day too low. We had...

    Liner replacement and new water

    Hi everyone! We had a liner replacement and new water this week. Yesterday I tested the water and FC-1.0, ph-8.0, TA- 80, and CYA- I never could get the dot to get cloudy. I vacuumed it, backwashed it and then added 1lb of shock. This morning my FC is non existent. Like never would turn pink...

    Robot Recommendations for large abg

    Hello All! We have recently replaced our liner and installed a bottom drain in our 30' round above ground. We are in need of a new vacuum head at the least (the bristles are falling out) but while I'm spending money I thought about researching for a robot. The problem I am seeing is that most...

    Swim and Play XL7000 and Rust!!

    Hello all! At the end of last year we had an issue with a hole in the pool wall. My dear husband swore he never would have mowed near enough to the pool to throw a rock or anything that could have damaged the pool. It was a perfect tiny circle, almost like a bb. I posted on here for help...

    Rusted pool wall

    UPSman- I think I am about to be in the same boat as you. At the end of last season we had a tiny pin hole of rust and a tiny hole in the liner which we patched. We drained the water way down when we closed it and decided this year during opening we would deal with it. Well that day has come...

    Tiny hole in pool wall and liner! HELP!

    We came home from vacation and found a hole in the side of the pool wall. What are my options?!? - - - Updated - - - - - - Updated - - - It seems like it goes through to the liner and is leaking a little. Can I patch the liner and use something like JB Weld on the wall?

    Thanks! I will get what you recommended. So why do they sell algaecide with copper in it if it’s so bad for the pool?

    I do have a couple tiny of brownish stains on the pool liner. I never put those together.

    It’s me again...

    We built the pool about 3 years ago but always let the pool guys do the work. This year I want to be smarter! I’ve had copper in years past. I didn’t realize it was because I used algaecide. Last year I had an algae problem that sprung up from nowhere and I spent lots of $$$ to clear it up...
