    Can't tell if my chlorine tester is bad?

    Seems odd. It's been 115 F in AZ all week and the chlorine level is not down. If no smell, is it safe for kids to swim?

    Can't tell if my chlorine tester is bad?

    Thank you. My smell is gone. I've used this test for several years and it would show some shade of yellow. Now all red. Is the water still over chlorinated.

    Can't tell if my chlorine tester is bad?

    First time experience since we had pool over 7 years. Went out to swim and was overwhelmed by smell of Chlorine. Thought it was over chlorinated. Took out my floating chlorine tablet floater for a week now. In sunny, hot Arizona, the water is still testing like this in photo. I still think...

    Pump Noise and Priming Issues

    Thanks Man. I will check all this today. What did you mean by this: Filter pressure gauge not letting air "in" when system is off which can cause water to shift in the plumbing

    Pump Noise and Priming Issues

    Hi Guys, my pump is constantly repriming at start up. Also, when the pump is shut off, you can see the pump drain itself. Also, the motor is making a rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr noise. I have owned the pool for 5 years and all the symptoms are new. Also, just cleaned all filters and strainers...

    Pump Keeps Re-Priming

    I checked the water level and skimmer. No issues. Water level is fine. Every time the pump starts each night, it reprimes and massive amounts of air comes out of in-floor cleaning. Usually, I only see this massive amount of air when I open the system to clean filters. Also, there are no...

    Pump Keeps Re-Priming

    Thanks Jim. I will check it out. The priming action used to only happen when I would let air into the system from cleaning the filters. So it was a new behavior..

    Pump Keeps Re-Priming

    Every time I turn on my pump, it is re-priming. The pool water level is fine. I don't see any plumbing leaks. Air is getting in the system as the floor cleaning heads shoot out air bubbles until it clears.

    Floor Cleaner Carnage

    My lid self-destructed last night while I slept. Amazing how much the pool drained itself. Side of house flooded. Wish there was a fail safe to shut to pump off when this happens..

    Pop Up Head Disintegrated - Can't Find

    Thank you. I will give that a try. I was thinking of putting the new pop up on, run the pool to create to flow resistance to see if that does it. Then take the pop up off again to see if the old pieces moved.

    Flow Problem - Blocked - Pop Ups?

    Flow to the pool nearly stopped, spiking the pressure in the filter to 45psi. The filters are perfectly clean. No blockages in the pool or skimmer. I took apart the A&A Manufacturing Six Port Housing and found one pop up shaft laying in the bottom (see photo) and several just about to come...

    Tile in Spa and On Dam Wall

    Hi Guys. Can you help me make some decisions. I need to replace the tile on this spa. Can any tile person do it, or do I need a pool contractor? I can replace just the tile on top, but would like to do the face of the dam wall. Any pros/cons to do that. I imagine then I would need a pool...

    Sand in Pool from Cleaning Heads

    Hi Guys, I can't find a way to get out the little piles of sand at bottom of pool that are created by the cleaning heads. If I use a regular net on a pole, sand falls right through. Thanks

    Squeaking or Bearing Noise when Cold?

    This morning I tested the pool equipment. It was about 45 degrees. The pool motor was making a intermittent errrrr, errrrrrrrrr, err, errrrrrr noise. I tested again this afternoon when it was 68 degrees and the noise was gone. Should I take any action at this point. The pool is 11 years...
