    Dissolved Dirt in Pool, floc or not with cartridge filter - Driving me crazy !

    Thankyou Brett, that makes a lot of sense. Would I be best to have the robot running round the pool (to stir any sediment up), although mind you doesn't appear to be much. Or just leave and potentially vacuum to waste at the end? Also would you recommend running the pump on a lower speed? Ive...

    Dissolved Dirt in Pool, floc or not with cartridge filter - Driving me crazy !

    G'day all Over the weekend we had an extensive amount of rain which has allowed a bunch of dirt / soil to enter the pool. The pool now has a very cloudy brown look to it.

    pH Adjustment of Small Water Sample

    Hi Amlez Fellow Aussie here mate also with the CCL kit, which is fantastic. I bought an Apera PH20 pH meter off Amazon as a confirmation tool and have found it very useful. It also helps you to practice interpreting the colour scale.

    G'day from Sydney Australia and would love your opinion!
