    Help finding heat pump information

    Hey all, I’ve been using TFP for a while now and I’m a supporter... About a year ago I was frustrated with the insane cost of running my heat pump and when I searched here I found some rather technical articles that clearly outlined when and why a heat pump can be more expensive than a gas...

    Trouble calculating amount of MA to add

    Need a little help here from the experts on chemical additions. Bottom line question is that I don’t understand why the PoolMath app is miscalculating what to add to my pool. Here are my most recent numbers... ========================================== Pool...

    Pink dust?

    Ok, not sure where to put this thread. I’ve posted about seeing pink dust on the chrome around my lights in some of my other threads, but it’s buried and I think pulling out to it’s own thread is a good idea while I try to figure out what’s going on. I pulled my lights today and took some...

    Pool size reverse calculation

    So here’s my thought and a question: I’ve been trying to determine my exact pool size (my pool builder just doesn’t think it’s important so I never get a solid answer). They’ve said it’s around 33k. BUT, when I add acid to bring down my PH, it seems to WAY overshoot. Granted, I haven’t been...

See attached photos (my photo of the step is meant to show the clarity I usually see all the way to the bottom of the deep end). Also, notice that in the photo there is a little brown floating spot...

    CYA, Friend or Foe?

    I just read this article and I'm very interested in thoughts around it: Cyanuric acid: friend or foe of swimming pools? Quote from the article: Over the years, numerous independent and academic research has come to show that when cyanuric levels build up in the pool, ORP levels consistently...

    Do I need to increase CH?

    I have essentially the same question, and my OCD makes me want to increase my hardness. I’m coming off a SLAM - I wouldn’t have done this out of the gates (just opened the pool on 5/2) but my Pool Company opened the pool for us and immediately threw shock into the pool, so I figured I would...

    Do I need to use these every week?

    First, as a new pool owner, this forum is A M A Z I N G! You guys have me on track and it's super simple to follow. Really appreciate all the time and energy everyone puts in here. I've already shared it with 3 other pool owners (who have had their pools for years) because they asked how the...
