    Which SWG to buy?

    I have to run my cell at 80% for 20 hours a day. This maintains around 5 ppm of FC. Pool is 16k gallons.

    main drain plumbing?

    Near my pump there’s a candy cane shaped pvc pipe that the PB told me was a over flow pipe. But christ, it’s about 18” above the pool water level. Not sure what it’s going to do. What do you mean by “unblockable” drain?

    increase CC with rain?

    Will lots of rain cause you to have CC's? Just saw that I have .5 of CC. I know thats acceptable, but Im wondering if this is the beginning of algae since we got about 6" of rain on Sat and Sun. My FC is hovering around 6.

    Power outage

    Summer time is here and also bad storms and hurricanes for us in Florida. When the power goes out is your chlorine level the most important chemical to maintain?

    TF 100 CYA

    It appear the little dropper for the CYA test takes 15ml of water and 14ml of cyanuric acid. can you cut these amounts down equally, 7.5 & 7 respectively? Based on this amount, it should give a CYA reading of atleast 30 reason I ask is I’m almost through my entire bottle of acid for cya testing.

    Frog Remedies?

    Will the FC keep the eggs from hatching or kill them once they do hatch?

    Frog Remedies?

    Cya is 70. I like to keep my Fc on the high side because my daughter and her friends will swim for hours and not get out if you know what I mean

    Frog Remedies?

    I guess the storm in the Gulf is creating havoc here in Florida! Just woke up to this. 20+ frogs in the pool. Majority are dead. Now I have frog eggs every where (black splotches near return.) Do I need to brush everything towards main drain? Run my robot? Dump some chlorine in pool (current...

    Garden Hose Filter For Fill Water

    Not sure what 176 gallons of purified water will do for your pool. The Resin's lifespan will depend on the amount of contaminants in your water. Depending on your TDS Level (ppm) 50, Expected Yield in Gallons Approx. 1410. TDS Level (ppm) 100, Expected Yield in Gallons Approx. 705. TDS Level...

    Chlorine consumption?

    We've been using a cover for the last 2 months at night time. But recently here in Florida the temps have been surging.. Today at 93 was the highest so far this year.. With a water temp today of 89, it felt greatttttt!

    Chlorine consumption?

    Chlorine consumption?

    Let’s assume all your chemical levels are in order and your pool gets the same amount of sun every day. Does your pool consume more chlorine when the outside temperature is 90 degrees VS when the outside temperature is 80, 75, etc ?

    Same thing as a SLAM?

    No clue. Is there any benefit to raising your FC that much once a month to kill of anything that your 3-6 ppm FC isn't killing or is this just another BS scare tactic? I see that it came from the CDC and I am taking that with a grain a salt.

    Same thing as a SLAM?

    Just came across this. Guessing its the same as a SLAM? Only thing they mention is the CYA needs to be between 1-15 ppm. Thats an entire pool drain! https://www.cdc.gov/.../hyperchlorination-to-kill-crypto...

    Cartridge replacement?

    Just to clarify, my clean start up pressure of 14 is when the pump is at 3450 rpms. When its running at 2000 rpms, the gauge is barely off the 0 mark.

    Cartridge replacement?

    The only hint of algae Ive had was 6 days after pool was filled last year. We got a little slimy water since the PB didn't put any chems in it. After they put chems in, everything has been good. Ive never seen anything that would tell me that I have algae, even though my FC has been maintained...

    Cartridge replacement?

    CC is a close call between 0 and .5 but no more than .5 Ive used clarifier in the past, but it has not been a every week thing. Just when I jump in the pool I can see very small micro particles floating around.
