    First time pool SLAM

    Doing this for the first time, I have read through the instructions, but figured I would post my process in case there is anything I have missed. --We have noticed very small slimy green spots forming on the bottom of the pool over the last 10 days. Slowly getting bigger, so that as of this...

    App feature idea

    Love the android app and use it multiple times a week. I wondered if there was a way to set it to ignore the phones dark mode setting. Dark mode when you are using the app pool side in the sun, makes it very difficult to see. It was great back when it ignored dark mode.

    Just getting started with a pool

    Thanks for warm welcome over in the other thread! The water temp has just dropped enough for the SWG to stop generating, so I'm at a point where I would love to get some guidance. I have the pump running in 1600 RPM for 20 hours, then 2600 for 4 hours. Test results are: FC: 6 CC: 0 PH: 7.8 CH...
