    Adding MA every day or get a dosing pump.

    Thanks Chris. I’m going to research this. We have dogs that get in the pool quite alot so that is another consideration.

    Your build: What would you do differently?

    Our pool was completed in the beginning of April 2019. While the water was to cold to swim and had to wait for the plaster to cure, we would sit out by the pool in the evenings and realized that we should have installed lighting for the waterfall, duh. :( While it's not the end of the world, it...

    I have the traditional mask and snorkel. I'll check out the full face ones. Sounds interesting. Thanks!

    Kids are brutally honest

    My niece was over swimming yesterday and she is a little fish. She swims in several different pools, community, swim lessons, friends, etc. She is learning how to snorkel and she pops out of the water and declares, "this is the clearest pool I have ever seen!" My SIL says, "they work hard at...

    Polaris TR36P sucking up it's tail

    Thanks Allen. I didn't even consider a suction side air leak because the cleaner is on the pressure side. Definitely makes sense. I'll start checking out the spots the article discusses.

    Polaris TR36P sucking up it's tail

    How would I go about testing/fixing that? I think I'll just make a warranty claim with the PB.

    Polaris TR36P sucking up it's tail

    I have a gauge near the valve that opens to provide pressure to the cleaner. It starts to lean forward on the front right wheel and the tail whips under the cleaner and gets sucked up. I have run it as low as 10 psi and it still happens. What has me perplexed is that nothing has changed with...

    Polaris TR36P sucking up it's tail

    My TR36P is 2 months old (new pool, equipment, etc) and it is sucking up it's tail. The PB told me to run the pressure at 15 psi which what I've been doing. We usually run it about 2 hours every other day or depending on how much debris is on the bottom. It was working perfectly until about 2...

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    Thanks. Will do. I got nervous and added bleach because the FC was low and we're supposed to get 2"+ inches of rain tonight and had a heavy swim load this past weekend. So looking forward to running the SWCG.

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    The PB put salt in the pool on 6/6 and told us the target is 2500-3500 and when I tested the salt today it was 3600 and the controller shows 3900. Is it safe to fire up the SWCG or do I need to drain some water and refill. My numbers from today's testing are in my profile. Please advise.

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    Thanks. I'll hold off until then. Any harm in leaving the CYA down until after the party on 6/8?

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    Thanks, the SWG is installed and the PB is bringing the first round of salt on 6/4 and giving us a SWCG pool school. What about CYA? When do I bring that level up?

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    So we got our actual date for the SWCG startup. Thursday June 6th. I have been trying to keep the numbers according to the non-SWCG list until then. Current numbers: FC 5 CC 0 pH 7.6 TA 90 CH 270 CYA 60 Salt 600 CSI -.06 Temp 78 I'm planning on getting the TA down to 70 in the next day or 2...

    Makes sense. Thanks Marty.

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    Why a pH 7.6 versus 7.4?

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    Thanks! 15 years of planning and saving. We're thrilled with it. Now I just don't want to screw it up. ;)

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    Thanks. The Nature2 cartridge is not installed and after all the reading here I won't allow the builder to install it when they startup the SWG. I have read the ABC's and just started the ebook. The SWG and Nature2 are 1 unit. Model: FSOFT1400. Thankfully I found this forum before I totally...

    Hello TFP. New pool/owner

    Hello all. I found this forum a few weeks ago and have been reading, learning and trying to not get "pool stored". There is so much information I feel like I'm drinking from a fire hose lol. I subscribed to the app and am currently reading the ebook. I have to say, this forum is very refreshing...
