    Raising CYA levels

    My CYA is at 20 and I am finding that I am losing a lot of chlorine during the day. About 4 to 5 ppm. I would like to get my CYA up to around 40. Which type of stabilizer should I use, liquid or dry and what is a good brand to use ? Thanks

    When to Test

    I will be opening my pool shortly and I have a question on WHEN to test my pool. Once I get all the chemicals balanced out, I will be using a stenner pump to inject liquid chlorine twice a day. My run time on my pump will be 5am - 11am and 5pm -11pm and I'll be injecting the chlorine around 8am...

    Storing chlorine

    So it's getting close to the time to close my pool. This is the first year I used a stenner pump to administer the chlorine and it worked so much better than expected. My plumbing to my pool is outside my garage wall so I installed the pump on the inside wall with a 15 gal. tank under it and run...

    Slam levels before closing

    My safety cover is solid. Looks like I'll close the first week of Oct and use Poly-Quat. I'll bring chlorine to slam level and let it come down 3 or 4 days before adding Poly-Quat and closing. I'll definitely open first or second week of may. Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it.

    What plugs to use

    I was just wondering what type of plugs work best for the intake and return lines for winterizing your pool ? Last closing I used the threaded type with the O-ring. Seemed to work fine. Your thoughts ?

    Slam levels before closing

    I have a safety cover. I will most likely close on Oct 6 or 7th because we are going on vacation the 12th through the 18th. I'm not sure I want to push the closing to Oct 19. As you know the weather here is pretty unpredictable. I like to open late April, early May depending on temperatures...

    Slam levels before closing

    This is my second time closing my pool. In the spring I started using this site along with the BBB method and its been a wonderful experience. I've learn so much and I am grateful for all the advice. My question deals with chlorine levels before I cover. Last fall when I closed my pool, I...

    Stenner Pump: Variable vs. Fixed rate?

    I bought the 45MPHP22 fixed rate pump. I know my pool takes about 1/2 gal chlorine a day. The pump puts out roughly 22 Gal per day which equals 1.95 oz per min. I run the pump twice a day for roughly 16 min each time. I planned on using a timer to control how much chlorine is administered so the...

    What size to use ?

    Thanks, would you go with Circupool RJ 60 or the 60 plus. Not sure if its worth the extra $100 for the plus. Looks like the replacement cell for the plus is also $100 more.

    What size to use ?

    I'm looking to convert my pool to SWG. I have a 20,000 gal I.G. that gets sun all day. I'm debating over brands and what size to get. Some say 1.5x to 2x is sufficient where others say 2x to 3x. Any ideas on a brand and a size ? I like the Circupool RJ series. Thanks
