    Jandy Truclear with VS Pump Run Times

    of course, i get how they work. i am not a newb by any means. i just like to circulate my water throughout the day and don't always want to be adding chlorine to it. my question was more along the lines of "assuming" if it's on it's generating chlorine and yes, my sig is old. just had a house...

    Jandy Truclear with VS Pump Run Times

    I attempted searching for my answer, but maybe I am asking incorrectly. This is a new install and I have a Truclear and a Hayward VS pump where i can specify RPM's and whatnot. If I'm understanding this properly, the way the setup is done, basically whenever my pump is running the SWG will be...

    Conflicting gallons help...

    even doing that, i still come up with 18k... 40*16*5 * 7.5 - 25% =18k... i guess 1k is better than 7k

    Conflicting gallons help...

    Having a new pool installed starting next week. It's a Viking Caribbean "16x40"... my problem is what I am being told doesn't line up with what I find elsewhere. Using a basic formula of Length (40) x Width (16) x Average Depth (5) x Free Form Multiplier (7.5), I come up with 24k gallons... I am...

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    well that doesn't sound like fun... is there any kind of wiring diagram or breakdown of parts i could find somewhere? from what pentair said, these are AO smith motors... but can't find much in the way of a breakdown anywhere...

    i don't see much in the way of "springs"... :-(

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    i'll have to go out there and look to see if i can find what you're referring to. not sure what i'm looking for, but i'll see if i can find some springs without taking it completely apart...

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    certainly... but i can manually get things going now with a little screw driver spin, so i don't want to mess things up completely without know exactly something to look for... not really in a position to purchase another pump just yet... so i'd rather have to work things manually as opposed to...

    Dynamo Pump Humming

    This is going to start off like the typical "my pump is humming" threads, but wondering if my issue is a bit different. pump runs almost 24x7 on low, and then i run on high for a few hours each day. went to go backflush the other day, turned pump off, switched filter gears, reached down to...

    CYA Readings

    the only water "replacement i've had in the last few weeks is adding back in due to evap... i haven't even had to backflush yet since adding that last 4lbs... and where would i find "liquid" CYA at?

    CYA Readings

    no sir... we did have a lot of rain in may... which is why i went ahead and added the other 4lbs without question a couple weeks ago... but now still showing no real movement, i am posing this question on the next 4lbs... :/

    CYA Readings

    guess i should have clarified that part... not my 1st rodeo on this, so i placed in a skimmer sock and hung it in front of the return... - - - Updated - - - i'll also add that the 1st 4lbs was from leslies... the 2nd (thinking there might be an issue with the quality of their CYA) was from...

    CYA Readings

    i have a 17k+ gallon ABG. my CYA reading was 10 at best a couple months ago. according to the pool pal calc, i needed to add a little over 4lbs of CYA to come up to around 50... i did that 2 months ago at the beginning of the season. it hasn't budged. still reading 10 at best, i dumped another...

    In pool, pool chairs/bench idea

    Is there a reason for that? The idea is that us tall people would like to be submerged in the water mostly to shoulder or armpit level (facing inside the pool), without having to hang our arms over the side and (facing the outside of the pool)... So if it's a "weight on the wall" thing, then...

    In pool, pool chairs/bench idea

    I've looked around on search and whatnot, but didn't really find what I am looking for... I was thinkin about making some PVC seating for inside my AGP. the concept would have it hang over the top rails and be completely movable all around the sides. could either do a single seat or a bench...

    Preemptive question about cloudiness after shocking...

    LOL! the next line after that one talked about it possibly being dead algae OR a calcium cloud... but yes absolutely... my pool was a swamp... i will make the assumption that it's dead algae (until it appears not) and proceed that way, since you mentioned that calcium clouds would most likely...

    Preemptive question about cloudiness after shocking...

    it was right in the middle of everything i typed out... "I am still in the shock/slamming process, BUT... my OCLT is a hair over 1... I gather that is because I have yet to move the steps and clean underneath there. I will do that tomorrow or Saturday when I have time."

    Preemptive question about cloudiness after shocking...

    no cal hypo... i've only used bleach in it... never the bags of shock or tablets... my calcium has never been extremly high i guess... i remember the # being below 200... but the PH before starting, was like so high it was purple... it took a lot of acid to get it down... ok, i'll throw some...

    Preemptive question about cloudiness after shocking...

    I'm a bit of a mess here, but assuming my water is still cloudy in a couple days, then I'd like to know where to go next. Ok, here goes... Dummy me didn't bother to get a pool cover at the end of last season. Figured whatever could go wrong, I could fix it with shocking and whatnot in the...

    My new pool fountain...

    I am a big advocate of evaporative cooling. I have used a fountain for the last couple years to keep my intex from being a hot tub. So with the new pool, I decided to make some changes and install it "with options"... :D I have plans to design an interchangeable waterfall that can just be...

    Starting numbers...

    :hammer: grrrr... should have read better... :hammer: yes, the PH is that high before i added anything to it... but the water has been in the pool for about 5 days... was working on the plumbing (which i finished last night)... and i thought the whole point of the initial startup shock...

    Starting numbers...

    Finally got everything situated and starting the shock process... here is what I have so far... i have a concern on the PH, but should I stress it right now, or wait til shock process is complete? FC: 10 CC: .5 CYA: 0 PH: 8+ TA: 100 CH: 140 Instead of starting off with bleach (stenner not...

    Question for variable speed pump owners

    ok... i have the 2 spd in my sig, so i'll go with the high setting pressure then... i guess every now and then, i'm going to have to switch it over from low (as that's where it's gonna be set to 99% of the time).

    Question for variable speed pump owners

    Where do we take the initial readings from as far as a "clean" reading goes? cause on high the pressure is at 11... on low... it's 0... <--- not sure if that really is a good thing or not. LOL

    Few questions on new build...

    i'm also wondering if i should start off my shock process with the bags of shock instead of just straight bleach, so that i don't have to add as much CYA... anyone have an idea how much CYA is in a bag of shock?

    Few questions on new build...

    since it won't do any good to have a separate outlet for the pump AND the stenner together, i'm just going to hard wire the pump into the timer. the line itself to the timer is 10/2, i do have some extra 10 and 12... but it looks like i'm going to have to get a separate timer for the stenner, so...

    Few questions on new build...

    i was going to run an outlet out from the timer, so that the 2 plugs would be on that timer and whatever was plugged into that would be controlled by that timer... that not a good idea?
