    White flakes in pool from SWG / Phosphates : YouTube Video

    I would really like to know the exact cause of the white flakes that are produced by the SWG. I have 40 salt pools on my route and only 2 (this year) got some of the flakes. Why do some pools with SWG produce them and other not? And I do a very good job of keeping the water LSI balanced. I...

    QuadDE Filter Cartridges: Needs V or U shaped spacers between each pleat

    I would like to recommend to Pentair that they redesign the cartridges that they put in the QuadDE filters. I have over 20 fairly new QuadDE filters on my pool route. What I am finding is that the rings they use to hold the pleats apart are not even lasting the first year. And within a...

    Stenner Pump: Variable vs. Fixed rate?

    Those of you who have a Stenner pump to feed chlorine, I'd like to ask what most have chosen, either a fixed rate or variable rate pump, and why?

    High Calcium Level and Borates?

    I am a pool guy that plans on introducing Borate in some of the pools on my route. Most fill water in my area is CH of 160 or slightly less. So I bring all my pools up to 330 to 350 to obtain a slightly positive LSI. I do currently have one brand new pool(5 months old) above 600(not of my...

    I am a 9 year pool service professional with a small service route of 52 pools in Orange County California, mostly Newport/Newport Coast area. I am here mainly to research Borates as I am planning on incorporating them into some of my pool accounts using Boric Acid. I am looking forward to...
