    Coming Up With a Natural-based Care Regime

    There is also information that Elvis is alive, and that there are Extra-Terrestrials walking among us ...... The proper use of chlorine as a sanitizer has extended sanitary conditions to endless corners of the globe, and probably has contributed to longer life expectancy overall. With the very...

    Coming Up With a Natural-based Care Regime

    How do you plan to maintain a residual sanitizer level? As already stated multiple times in this thread, you need high levels of H2O2 to act as a sanitizer. Any ‘low doses’ below the actual level needed is simply wasting H2O2 and not doing anything for sanitation.

    Coming Up With a Natural-based Care Regime

    Hello and Welcome to the forum! What is your motivation for this? Is it simply a theory you are exercising, or do you have a 'fear' of chlorine? Chlorine really is the safest, reliable & most economical form of water sanitization. Millions of lives have been saved due to safe drinking water...

    Hot Springs water & Chlorine equals Hydrochloric Acid

    Hot Springs water & Chlorine equals Hydrochloric Acid Welcome to the forum! As far as I know, the only accepted sanitizers in the US are chlorine, bromine, or biguanide (Baqacil). I’m sorry I can’t help much more, but my experience is strictly with residential pools.

    Drain and Refill - Water turned yellow - Can't figure out why?

    It's the high chlorine level that forces the iron out of suspension and makes it visible, as in the form of yellow water and rusty filter cartridges. Unless you are maintaining a very high FC level in your toilet bowl, you will most likely not see iron deposits there with the low levels you...

    Drain and Refill - Water turned yellow - Can't figure out why?

    From everything you described, this does indeed sound like iron. I don’t know if the iron levels will change with the seasons, but the test from February could have been wrong.

    Drain and Refill - Water turned yellow - Can't figure out why?

    That looks like iron that has come out of solution from the high FC levels. Have you had the well checked for iron levels?

    Saltron Mini, Marquis spa, and dead heater with corrosion

    While the age of the heater would contribute to it's demise, the biggest enemy to the heater is continued low pH. All chlorine pools contain salt, added by all forms of chlorine, muriatic acid, and body sweat. While I cannot argue the fact that salt will accelerate corrosion, as I have stated...

    Is this laundry bleach okay for shocking a bromine spa?

    I don't think either of those contain sodium hypochlorite either, and would not put them in my pool or spa. Can you not get regular bleach where you are? (is it Spain?).

    Sounds like PoolPal is having issues then. Use Pool Math and you should never have to worry about errors like that.

    High bromine... does it affect ph?

    Is this a bromine pool or a chlorine pool? Bromine should not be added, or needed in a chlorine pool.

    How to get chlorine levels back down?

    For every 10ppm of FC added with Trichlor you will also add 6ppm of CYA. For every 10ppm of FC added with Dichlor you will also add 9ppm of CYA. If you have been regularly using Trichlor there is some CYA in the water. It is not showing up on the guess strips because they are not accurate...

    Is this mold?

    Welcome to TFP PihkaSisu. I'm going to agree with swampwoman, your FC has/is most likely not being maintained high enough for your CYA level. Do you ever test the water? Your pH is very important as well. You are going to need a FAS/DPD chlorine test kit, as well as a test for pH, CYA, CH &...
