    Pad Layout Help

    I added a heater this week. My priority was to get the pool warm. Now that it is I would like to redo the pad and make it better looking. My pool is plumbed with 1.5” however the heater and chlorinator are both 2”. I’m looking into some Jandy valves. I know I need to put a one way valve in front...

    Stabilizer issues

    Clorox test strips told me I had low stabilizer. I actually had CYA of 240. If I had followed the Clorox strips I would have increased my CYA, wasted money and not fixed the problem at all!

    It’s gonna hurt. I have to pay sewer on it too. No breaks. It’s under 20 per 1000 gallons

    Is this the same thing as “soft” water?

    The water feels like “silky” or “slimy” but not in a bad way. Is this because of the CH? Or the TA being high? Or both?

    How do I look this up? Or is it anything under Shock Level?

    No sticker shock. I thought it would drop faster!

    Bought a pool, CYA > 200

    Amazing considering it was >200 and I was thinking that I would only get it down to 60. My pool gets exposure to direct sunlight for 6 hours. I’m not sure what my target CYA should be yet.

    FC is 15, 80 minutes later. Pool must be less gallons than estimated?

    Re: Bought a pool, CYA > 200 Last time it took about 24 hours. I’m in town water. Not looking forward to the bill but still cheaper than a few tankers. I have to stop filling to get water pressure in my house.

    Diluted CYA 120. Does anyone know about draining into a sewer system on my house? When I drain it goes into the neighbors yard. Or reverse osmosis in Maryland?

    Ok, so my CYA is now 100. Should I even bother testing anything else or is it too high and I need to drain and refill again?

    I got the TF-100 and got 200 plus with the diluted test. Went to the pool store to ask them if they test CYA. They tested with a Taylor kit and confirmed it was over 100. I’ll post a new test when the pool is full. FC 2.0 pH 6.5 TA 10 CH 25 CYA 200
