    Pool Closing - Getting killed with upcharges

    I just assumed chemicals and cleaning were all included in closing, but to them, closing just really means blowing out the lines.

    Pool Closing - Getting killed with upcharges

    First year with the pool, never done a closing before. Pool company quoted me $300 for the closing, and then of course all the extra costs come in for things I assumed were included (again, I'm a total newb at this): $99 to add shock, algaecide and metal sequestrant $99 to clean SWG cell $99...

    FC still high 7 days after SLAM

    I put it down to 0 and then got ~9 inches of rain. We weren’t swimming that week because of all the rain and I just wasnt thinking about it. Forgot I turned it to 0.

    FC still high 7 days after SLAM

    Yeah this swg seems to be very efficient. At 10% it was keeping 10+ FC levels.

    FC still high 7 days after SLAM

    I SLAMmed the pool a week ago and got the FC up to 28. Pool was turning green but the SLAM fixed it quickly. Pool is crystal clear. The FC has not gone down, however. It’s still at 28. I also drained and refilled a few inches of water (unrelated) and it hasn’t changed. ph 7.8 Salt 3000 CYA 30...

    Massive rain over past 7-10 days

    FYI I noticed last night that my swg was on standby, probably for the past couple days. Someone must have touched it.

    Massive rain over past 7-10 days

    Should I raise my CYA? TFP says my recommended level is 70 or 80. If so do I do that after the slam?

    Won’t that raise the already high PH?

    Massive rain over past 7-10 days

    I posted about a week ago how my pool filled up about 3-4 inches after a huge rain. We’ve had a good 3 more huge storms. The pool was overflowing and I had to start pumping water out. Now my levels are messed up and the water is slightly cloudy too. ph: 7.8 maybe 7.9 Cya: 30 Chlorine: 0. The...

    How do I drain water after heavy rain

    I may leave it. The skimmer is barely working though that was my only concern. Nothing is really getting sucked into it. Not as much as usually anyway. Or maybe I’m just imagining things. Brand new pool owner (~3 weeks).

    How do I drain water after heavy rain

    I have a giant hose that will clamp on to that black cap and will reach all the way to the street. I was told I’d be able to use that to drain the pool but they never showed me how. A little scared to try it

    How do I drain water after heavy rain

    That’s pretty funny. The first time we ever filled the pool I forgot and overfilled it. Then drained it and forgot and drained too much. Rinse and repeat maybe 1 more time.

    How do I drain water after heavy rain

    Heavy rain added about 2-3 inches of water to my pool over the past 48 hours. The water level is above the skimmer. My pool installer never told me how to drain water if I need. I have a ClearWater 2 cartridge filter. can I just unscrew the cap in the back and let water out or do I need to do...

    10+ FC consistently

    Yes but I ran out of drops I had to use so many between the 10ml and 5ml. I was at 15 drops. One problem is my pool gets no sun. I’m having trees cut down to let the sun in. Is having high FC dangerous to the pool equipment?

    10+ FC consistently

    7.8 ph 60 cya 160 TA FC is off the charts. I’ve added 30 drops using the Taylor test kit and still nothing. swg is on 0%. Is it bad to have chlorine that high consistently? Nobody has complained at all while swimming.

    I just checked. The steps already have 16 little holes drilled in them. 8 on each side of the steps.

    Wedding cake steps keep floating around

    Thanks. I did the concrete inside the capped PVC pipes but didn’t make a lick of a difference. These steps were born to float and Dang me if I try to stop them! Lol.

    Wedding cake steps keep floating around

    I’d rather get new steps. They look like a major trip hazard.
