    New salt system reading 2800 when no salt has been added

    I have just installed a Hayward aquatrol on my 24' AG and when I turned it on to my sunrise the salt reading on the readout is already at 2800. I don't have the generator turned on yet since I am going to get good levels with bleach first. Going to the store now to buy salt to have on hand...

    New 24' SW above ground

    I just replaced my 7 year old 24' metal AG pool BBB with a 24' AG resin SALT pool due to the old pool rusting so bad. I have almost full of water and will start her up tomorrow. What method should I use to start up? Do I just get my parameters like cya, alkalinity, ph and free chlorine in check...

    Cloudy water!!!

    To me that's cheap. If I buy 10.5% at my local pool store, it's $3.75 per gallon. Seems really high to me but I pay almost $3 per gallon for 8% bleach.

    Yep we got it fixed!!! Thank you for the help. Good grief , 44,000 gallons; that thing is huge. I can only imagine how much bleach you would go through on a daily basis.

    Cloudy water!!!

    My water out of my backwash is clear other than just dirty from pollen getting in the water. Yesterday I turned the timer off so I am running 24/7 until this is cleared up. I am going to add DE to my sand filter this afternoon to see if I can filter out the small particulates. As for turning...

    Cloudy water!!!

    My pump run time is at 14 hours per day, there shouldnt be any metals in my water as I have never had an issue before. Also the water isnt really green after adding chlorine to it, its more so just cloudy now. Never even tested calcium, I thought it was only tested in plaster pools. What would...

    Cloudy water!!!

    Well I tested it overnight and the drop was .5; that being said I messed up and put bleach in after my wife did yesterday and instead of it being at 15 for shocking its at 20 and dropped to 19.5 overnight. If this isnt algae what could it be? :confused:

    What other readings do you need? I have the TF 100 kit. I will check to see what my overnight chlorine loss is today when I get home and report back. I will also go ahead and buy some bleach to SLAM it.

    Cloudy water!!!

    I am at the lowere range of my cya at 30. But I keep my level at 4-5 for chlorine. I figured that would be enough. Maybe not though.

    I have had my pool for about 5 years and have always had a sparkling pool and have been using the BBB method from day one. I have never had a green pool but this year I didn’t start adding bleach to the pool at the right time and I got a slight green tint to the water. I have since gotten my...

    Liquid Chlorine

    Is there a way to tell what percent liquid chlorine is? The pool store (which I hate to buy from) has nothing but high school kids working there and when I ask what % it is I got an answer of 47%. :shock:. Needless to say no one ever gave me the correct answer so I am wanting to test it myself...

    Zero CYA

    On the pool calculator it states Be careful if your CYA is really and truly zero in the suggested FC area. Why does that matter when adding bleach. Over the winter all I did was added bleach here and there not bothering with CYA but now it is warming up I checked my CYA and it is Zero. I forgot...
