    Heater on with pump off

    Yes, I turned the pump off and was watching to see what the heater would do bc I was going to leave it on until the pump turned on in the morning. It wasn’t running but the temp was at 98 from the spa and then kept creeping up. After I turned the pump back on after about 5 mins it went back...

    Heater on with pump off

    Thank you for your reply. I did turn the Pump off last week and left the heater on thinking it would just not run since there was no water flow and the temp went up to 122. I got super scared and turned the pump back on. Its been working fine, so I hope I didn’t damage anything.

    Heater on with pump off

    Hello, I heated the pool today and turned it off for the night. It didn’t get as warm as I wanted today so would like to get the pool heating earlier. The pump is set to turn on at 6am. Can I leave the heater “on” overnight and it will fire up in the morning when the pump starts? When the on...

    Spa vs pool and ph numbers/scaling

    Thank you for your reply. That makes sense. It also makes me feel a lot better. I would rather clean a little off the tiles then worry constantly about the ph. Here is a pic. It’s not terrible but I’m super ocd and like things to always look new.

    Spa vs pool and ph numbers/scaling

    Please forgive my ignorance. Our pool will be 3 months old Nov 1. I was pool stored for awhile and just switched over to bbb about a month ago. My question is this. We have been using the attached spa and it has developed some scaling on the side where it spills over. I finally figured out it...

    Is this acceptable? Opinions, Please

    Also, it’s your pool. Our company always did exactly what we wanted. These bother you so just ask them to replace them. Very easy to do. Better to replace now when it’s easy then wish you had later.

    They should fill them with grout. One of ours had the little hole in it but didn’t have the corner like that. The hole will be fine but I if we’re me I’d want the piece with the corner cut replaced.

    Thank you. I just went to Leslie bc pinch a penny was closed. While I was there I had the water tested. My question is who is right? They show my calcium hardness much lower than my reading. The FC was 1.3 lower. Everything else was pretty much the same. Can I safely trust my kit or should I add...

    So my water is bubbling up. Please see the pics above for the bleach I’ve been using. This is apparently NOT regular bleach as it states?? is this bleach okay? I don’t see any fabric protection. Am I damaging my pool equipment?

    I didn’t do a test last night but this am the FC was still 10.6. CC 0 I plan to dilute the pool tomorrow to reduce teh cya. Can I put the hose in the bottom of the pool and run it for several hours to drain the top water out of the overflow drain? We don’t have a pump. After I dilute do I then...

    My apologies... the heb brand is 7.5 not 8.25. I will do that overnight test tomorrow night. Here’s a pic of the bleach. Does it matter at all if I do overnight the test on a night we heat the spa? Thank you again for your time.

    Tested water for first time.

    Thank you for your detailed reply! Also fun talking to someone local! The pool is crystal clear. I must have misunderstood. I thought I had to slam every time the CC was over 0.5 and today I thought it was so I thought I had to slam. I was also thinking with the heavy bather load and use we...
