    Changing brushes and tracks on S300

    How often does one usually change brushes or tracks on a dolphin S300 and what does one look for? I probably run it 3-5 times for 2 hrs a week and its . I am not sure I am getting the same level of brushing I used to get and its a little over a year old.

    Jandy TruClear Panel Defect?

    My neighbor has had to have his Jandy TruClear control touch panel replaced 4 times under warranty. The touch pad buttons become non responsive and locked on the last setting still reading on the display and SWG still working. I think its because its getting direct sun (almost due south) here...

    Trying to find the balance to reduce acid addition with acceptable CSI

    Firstly, This group is awesome and the pool stores must hate it. Very helpful. Here we go... Our SWG pool is about 10 months old and operational year round here in the Central Florida “mountains”. I probably average 10-15 Oz of MA a day to keep the pH between 7.4 and less than 8.0. I have...
