    Pentair Prowler 920 Issues

    I’m having issues with my Pentair Prowler 920 as well. It’s also only two years. I had to send it in last because a rubber piece worked it’s way loose last year. As soon as I got it back, it did it again. Now the robot hardly picks up leaves and it struggles climbing the walls. Since you seem to...

    What Should I Pay For When I Open My Pool Up

    That’s your best bet. Actually, I think I’ll ask my pool company what our opening includes to so I can tell them which pieces I don’t want! That’s a great idea.

    What Should I Pay For When I Open My Pool Up

    I have no idea what you *should* pay but my pool place is charging me $150 to open ours and it is a flat rate. I will ask them not to add any chemicals because that’s easy to handle myself. If they want to clean the pool, I’ll definitely let them but I don’t think they do.

    Priming And Equipment Question

    I’m positive. I actually wiped the minimal residue left behind. I noticed my pool starts were a little rough with air which is why I went to investigate. I am shocked!

    Priming And Equipment Question

    I’ll have to see if I can get some video of it. You can see it better at night. It’s not related to the o-ring because it’s been doing it for a while.

    Priming And Equipment Question

    Hi Everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and happy Independence Day! I have two questions: 1- Awhile back I was having issues with bubbles in my jets. I applied Vaseline to my pump o-ring which helped but was advised that it was not good to add Vaseline. I cleaned it off and used pool lube...

    Problem filtering with Zeolite

    I have zeolite and while I’ve never experienced a problem like what you are describing, I don’t think it’s all it’s cracked up to be. I didn’t close my pool and it ran all year long. I don’t think it filters very well so I do have to use some DE at times plus I have skimmer socks on my...

    Aquatrol Panel Not Turning On the Pump

    Good Morning, I’m at my mothers house and her Aquatrol Panel will not turn on the pump. Even if I turn it to on and not auto, it still will not turn on the pump. I have googled and the only thing I seem to find it an assumption that the timer isn’t set right but that is not the problem. Any...

    Do I Have Algae?

    Ahhhh, gotcha. I was hoping that was the case but I just thought it was weird the way the spots looked on the bottom and the pine pollen is pretty much done which is why I started to investigate for algae. This does make me feel a little better. I went to a pool store on Saturday for parts to...

    Do I Have Algae?

    So that’s it then? It looks like I passed based on the results of the test I’ve already conducted.

    Do I Have Algae?

    Hi Everyone! I swear my pool is being difficult in this second year of ownership. It was so easy last year and now the pool is mocking me. I’m trying to figure out if I have algae. I keep having random areas of dust collecting on the bottom of the pool and when I try to touch it it...

    I have an iPad and it’s the same as an android tablet, bigger version of the phone. A computer is the easiest way to reconfigure your features.

    Air In System

    Thanks Jim! Trying this in the morning! I didn’t realize that about the pool lube. Should I wipe off the Vaseline and replace it?

    Air In System

    Hi Everyone! I’m desperate and I need some help. I have air somewhere in my system. When the pump is running, I can hear my sand filter (sounds like water running - pretty sure I couldn’t hear that last year), the filter pressure seems really low (running at 1300 RPM) and I can see air...

    What kind of bugs are these?

    They do jump! Springtails, eh? Argh! I did not have any landscaping done in the past year but I had some of these bugs last year but this year they are insane. The weird thing is today, when I went to add a little chlorine, the bugs were gone. I can tell this is going to be a long spring.

    What kind of bugs are these?

    Hey everyone, I’m curious if anyone has experienced these bugs in their pool? They are all over the surface and it’s gross. Any ideas what they are and how to stop/prevent them?

    New Vinyl Pool Build - Pittsboro NC

    We are located in Wake County and we had the same issues with our septic. Turned out there was only one place the pool could go. It worked out for us but it was a long process to get there. I can’t wait to follow your build!

    Ohhhhh, I wasn’t even aware of that. How does it impact the CCs? Does it make the levels seem elevated?

    Gym Pool Test Results

    Ok, that makes sense. I’ll just have to keep my head above water [emoji23] Sadly, my pool doesn’t have a heater so if I choose to swim in it now it will be more like an ice bath (which I’m actually considering, I’ve been reading about cold water swimming). I can’t wait for summer!

    Gym Pool Test Results

    My gym has two pools, an indoor and an outdoor. I’ve been wanting to take a pool aerobics class but I’ve always been weary of public pools, hence the reason I built my own, and since I have been following this group my weariness has grown ten fold. I decided I would test the pool before I took...
