    Tired of Manually Adding Liquid Chlorine

    I have a SWG in FL. Works great. I check my pool one time per week. It's affordable too if you have someone that can do the plumbing and you buy the SWG separately

    The absolute best granite sealer

    Is this good for indoor countertops? I need to reseal mine at some point.

    Disabling SWG

    Ha ha! I know the feeling. I have almost 4 year old twins and they don't listen to a word. Stop running, stop hitting your sister, blah blah blah. They hear for 10 seconds, then forget and resume activity.

    Disabling SWG

    Can't you just turn the power off on the console? I can turn mine completely off with just the "power" button (edge model)

    What happened with the light issue?

    M.Acid Feeder with SWG

    I have a SWG and I test my pH weekly and it's almost always 7.8 (after 1 week of acid addition). I always need the same amount - 12oz per week. My point is the acid demand is not crazy so I agree/support wJimrahbe.

    Construction just began- will I regret not going bigger?

    We have a 9500 gallon pool with the deep end being 5ft. Our young kids are very happy and it's enough for what you described (lounging/floats).

    My New Old Pool Dig Out

    I'm not a builder or even pretend to know anything about building. However, I had my pool remodeled last year and they did the coping first, then the pool tile. When they grouted the tile, they sealed up any spaces between the coping and the tile at that time.

    Stonescapes Mini Pebble - Still does not look right

    Did they do an acid wash the day after plaster application? It looks like too much creme (I think they call it). The acid wash the next day exposes the pebbles.

    Skim Around for a Skimmer

    Mine works as advertised (vortex effect), however I have to keep my water level in a specific range (mid skimmer). If it's any higher than mid skimmer then it doesn't work and I have to throw a rock in the bottom to keep it from floating. At this time of year (rainy season), I just throw a...

    Maybelle the Dolphin Nautilus - I'm gonna miss her.

    Awe, nice memory and name. Mine is just called "Sucky". So impersonal, but we can't change it down. It's learned it's name already.

    SWG run time calculations assistance

    So just to contribute to the conversation because I find it interesting. I have an edge-40. I had the toughest time getting it dialed in with a few SLAMs due to erratically dropping FC (FC would hold for 2 days then drop suddenly). I finally treated for phosphates (tested at 2500+) and it's...

    Is it time to replace my salt cell

    Just to add to your post. I have a SWG and couldn't get FC levels stable. My pool would hold FC for a few days then drop. I SLAMMED over and over again. I passed the overnight CL test many times. I couldn't figure anything out so I broke down and treated my pool for phosphates (my numbers...

    New pool build in South Florida .. finally! [Tons of pics]

    In my neighborhood some use Areca palms as "fences" but I'm not sure the downsides of doing that. We have some bushes planted right next to our screen that provides some privacy (Clusia). They are fairly slow growing and work for us.

    Can't wait to see it with water in it. So close. I bet the kids are excited!

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    Yes, I’m sure. We needed TP for the first time since the quarantine started. Thankfully found some at Sam’s Club tonight, along with a 4-pack of Lysol for my father in law. He has sprayed down the mattress at every sheet change for 40+ years so you can imagine how disgruntled he was. Lol. Bleach...

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    So......this is what DSP also told me to do. I took my water to the pool store to get tested for phosphates and it was 500 or something like that. After some research on TFP and my own troubleshooting, we just lied to DSP and told them the phosphates tested negative :censored: so we could get...

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    We ordered via discount salt pools. We called them and after a bunch of troubleshooting efforts they agreed to issue us the paperwork to ship it back. When they did that they sent an empty cell bypass. We used the bypass until it shipped back, was tested and approved for replacement. It took...

    As I understand it, bacteria can eat it and make ammonia. There are a lot of posts about it. @Daltex

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    @mguzzy I haven't tested it yet. I added the equiv to 50ppm and will retest tomorrow. I'm sure I'll need some more. I have about a cups worth left that is SLOWLY dissolving. I mixed two brands of CYA. One was great and dissolved in one day, this second brand is taking forever, even with me...

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    OMG, right! I kept saying, there is no way this SWG is faulty too. I have to give it a fair shake. We have a local pool company that charges $50 a month and they install a SWG on every pool they maintenance. We have two friends that use them and their pool is always sparkling and pretty...

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    @Jimrahbe I didn't mean I was adjusting daily to get it perfect. I was just trying to find the right setting. Because the first cell wasn't working I would think I have the right setting and then it would drop a week later. So I would turn it up and then think I was ok, and it would drop...

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    Yes, I knew I was due to check levels. I was going to boost CYA up a little, because I was keeping it a little low due to all the SLAMS. But was shocked that all my CYA disappeared in a month. Got my sock going right now. I'm just hoping I don't run into any more snags and it works. Been...

    Tile & Finish Choices

    I think it will be a beautiful combo. We have blue, green, and dark in our 1x2 tiles and the colors really accent each other.

    I think I finally got the SWG going (after months of struggle)

    We got a new Circupool Edge in December. Had trouble getting it dialed in until one day it didn't seem like it was making any chlorine. We did everything we needed to do to test it (ie ran it overnight, tried to test water directly from the returns, etc). Finally sent it back, tested it, and...
