    I'm so lost with this algae Crud! HELP!

    Not sure, the tester showed it was high. 4 cups of muratic acid and I'm doing much better. Green is gone. Still a little cloudy but it's improving quickly This update was a few days ago. It's perfect now! Just needed a pH fix

    I'm so lost with this algae Crud! HELP!

    That's what i buy when it's available but we are still limited if it's available. The pool is looking less green today. I have the PH back under control. All of the chemicals looks like they are in range except the chlorine which is high on purpose. I can almost see the bottom of the pool and...

    Cal hypo Lowe's now has Clorox shock stuff. I didn't think that was advised. If there is something else that is carried by Lowe's please do let me know. Last time I was there, it looked like it had been robbed. I'm in a hotspot called Texas so that may be a factor. Thanks!

    I'm also using the jumbo tab from pool mate. I was using Leslie's before and ran out so I went to Amazon. That weekend that it happened we were gone a little longer than normal so I put in 2 or 3 tabs in the floater. I took all out but 1 when I got home thinking that it added CYA more than I...

    Tc is in the 5s, FC is hard because after adding 5 drops of 3 it's now purple so please let me know about that. Cya 55ish Ph is high around 8.2. it wasn't last week so that's a problem. Total alkalinity is 110 Ph - just added 4 cups of muratic acid so i'll check those levels shortly

    I'm so lost with this algae Crud! HELP!

    I admit that i didn't initially get the deluxe version of the testing kit but then bought a standalone kit just for CYA. Are you thinking the chlorine levels are low? Thanks for the quick response!

    I'm so lost with this algae Crud! HELP!

    SO this is the first time owning a pool. Started out the summer doing great never having any issues with chemical levels or anything really. The water always looked so crisp and clean, very clean! So we went on a trip for 3 days and came back to strips of algae on the bottom. I started with high...

    That's crazy that all of us have this same issue. This was all of 2 weeks old when it started not allowing me to do anything but off and on for the hours initially set.

    If a storm comes, I just unplug and wait for it to pass. The gfci plug to extension cord is off the ground just in case there is unaccounted water

    Any vendors with in stock pools?

    My wife was just talking to me about trampolines and pools. We looked 1.5 months ago and delayed for a few days as we weren't sure. We decided on a 400 pool but it magically turned into a 1200 pool! That was fast! We found one for 800 and just bit the bullet

    hayward wide mouth intex install

    Thanks everyone! Regarding my question and having to relevel the pool. Should I do that prior to cutting and mounting? I'm thinking that once it's cut, the pool should never be moved or drained. If so, I've got some work to do prior.

    hayward wide mouth intex install

    Yes, I believe that is what I've seen others doing. Since I am going to be fixing leveling in the fall, should I wait till then? Is it bad to remove the skimmer after installed? Just wondering if the vinyl is delicate post cutting to not disturb it. It sounds like the cutting is easy but nerve...

    15’ Intex , first pool, 3rd attempt putting it up

    Same here but my wife made me hurry so kids could swim. 2 inches off as well and no pavers. I have prepared her that it's going down in a few months and to prepare for it. At first, I didn't care and several videos don't emphasize level and several said to not use pavers but then I found TFP so...
