    Aqua Connect ????!!!!

    No issues here other than the normal lag it has when sending a command. It’s gotta be something on your end, maybe try re-teaching it again. Salty

    STYX concert tonight at 8 EST

    Styx was the first concert I ever attended in 1976 at the ripe old age of 11! Debut of Tommy Shaw on their Equinox Tour, I’ll never forget how great of a experience it was.

    So confused.

    Do yourself a favor and order the Magnetic Speed Stirrer and a couple extra magnetic stirrer bars when ordering your kit. This makes testing easier and more accurate in my opinion. Salty

    I'm about done with SWG

    I don’t think you can blame the SWG for not being able to use your pool due to cold water- buy a heater, problem solved. Saltwater readings are unreliable, that’s why it’s recommended to get the K1766 kit, just keep the cell happy and monitor with the K1766. How many times have you Acid washed...

    Building and Trying to Decide on Furniture. Help Needed

    Yes it’s a tough decision buying something without actually seeing/touching it. We labored the same thing and ended up getting a bunch of TK Classics furniture from Wayfair and couldn’t be happier with our purchase. I think there’s some pics in my build thread. I’d also recommend looking at a...
  6. Uncle Salty order question

    If you’re getting the magnetic stirrer, do yourself a favor and get a couple extra of the magnetic bars so you can knock out all the tests without having to dig the little bar out of the tube you were testing. Salty

    Glad you’re enjoying it, I’ll add one to my order I’m just about to make. Salty

    Looks good, I’d likely run the decking straight down from the pool and run it closer to that tree unless it’s a mature tree with roots that’ll tear up the concrete. Seems like you have some good options to choose from. Salty

    Water Lounger

    Just curious how you’re liking the new float as I’m in the market for another one. I currently have the blue/white striped swimways that has the issues with the material tearing but I sewed it up after the first use and it’s still going strong but if this ones material is better I may get it...

    The Great Mistake (photo heavy!)

    Hopefully your home warranty comes through to cover some of the costs. Have you contacted the sellers agent regarding the non disclosure agreement, there’s no way that pool was opened and operational every year, it looks like it hasn’t seen the light of day for a couple years at least. I’m glad...

    Intelliph Emptied Entire Tank of Acid

    I had the same thing happen with my Hayward Sense & Dispense. I disabled it after and it’s been that way for 2 years, big waste of money. Funny thing is I only add Acid like maybe once a month if that. Salty

    hayward aqua plus: check system light on

    It’s a separate system for PH and ORP monitoring and a total waste of money. I’m guessing that you don’t have it and have it enabled which is why the error. Should be able to disable it in the configuration menu I believe. Salty

    Manually Vacuuming pool - first time

    Did he leave y’all a net? If so just use that to get the rocks out and if not go to amazon and get one as you’ll need it to get leafs and such out at some point. I manually vacuumed once and it’s a awful task, adjust your budget and get a robot. Oh and congrats on your new pool! Salty

    Treasure Garden Vega L Light

    Thanks Kim, I ended up ordering one and it arrived today! Seems like a solid purchase and I’ll give it a go tonight. I’ll probably buy another for my other TG umbrella. Salty

    Something You Wish You had Done was...

    One thing I regret not putting in is a diving board. Only thing that I wish I didn’t put in is the PH Sense and Dispense, total waste of money and a huge disappointment. Salty

    Cant get FC up.

    I would try running 24hrs but at a much lower speed like 1000rpm, are you running it 19hrs at 2500rpm, if so your electric bill is going to be larger than it needs to be. If you have a solar cover that will help prevent chlorine burn off while not in use. With that heavy of bather load you’re...

    Treasure Garden Vega L Light

    Just curious if any Treasure Garden owners have purchased the Vega light and what y’all think of it. I’m debating on purchasing a couple for my umbrellas. Also if you have the Halo version I’d be interested in hearing about it as well, not interested in the Luna as I have no use for the...

    Cant get FC up.

    How many hours a day are you running your pump? Our pool is about the same size and my T-15 cell has no problem keeping FC level at 6ppm and the sun is a lot stronger here I suspect than in Quebec. What test kit are you using? Salty

    Bees around our pool.

    I’ve had this issue in early spring the last couple years and have successfully gotten rid of them but it takes patience. Get yourself a garden sprayer and mix 4 parts water to 1 part dawn dish soap and get ready for action. The key is to stop them from returning to the hive to bring others with...

    If the builder can’t/won’t provide references of previous work he’s done then I would definitely pass and find someone who’s proud to show off their work. Salty

    I would skip the water fall and deck jets and add more decking. I would also skip the robot and purchase it on your own as you’ll save a few bucks. Have you considered automation and or a heater? Love the design though! Salty

    Slippery Steps!!

    Are your steps vinyl over steel or concrete? Who’s the manufacturer of the liner, have you tried reaching out to them for possible known issues/solutions. Maybe just the angle of the picture but your top step appears out of square to the second one and kinda small with the style. I have full...

    Anyone have experience with Tiger Shark In-ground Pool Cleaner?

    Sounds like you got a lemon unfortunately. I agree somewhat with the bottom access being a bit of pita and the cleaning of the filters, I have 4 sets in rotation. I’ve had zero issues and when it dies I’ll weigh my options on what’s available for a replacement but so far so good. Salty

    New Pool Build Estimates/Comparison - Are we missing anything?

    Like everything they both have their pros & cons, I have vinyl but it was either that or fiberglass as no builders near me do Gunite or we would have gone that route for sure. As others have said dump the pressure cleaner and purchase a robot on your own as they’re cheaper and cost virtually...

    Hayward 400fdn LO error

    Then the flow switch would likely be the place I’d be looking next.

    Hayward 400fdn LO error

    I’d be going with a flow problem, either sensor or actual water flow problem.What pump do you have and what speed are you running it when calling for heat? I have to run my pump on 2 otherwise I’ll get the Lo fault if on speed 1. Salty
