    Cigar Smokers hanging out on here?

    I belong to a local nonprofit group called "The Cigar Band". We don't play music, it is named after the band around a cigar. Anyhow we meet every month at a members house and sample the hosts cigar that is provided. We grade it and take notes. At the end of the year we tally up to see what cigar...

    Crop dusting and pool chemistry.

    My SIL claims they can't open their pool until the farmers are done spraying their fields by airplane? Why and what could they do to open earlier? I'm not sure how far away the nearest field is but it is not real close. Maybe a mile. She claims one year it totally messed them up.

    What would/do you do?

    I check my FC every morning around 6:30am before the sun hits the pool. My target is 6-8. Used to be 8-10 but the rain/back washing dropped my CYA from 70 to 50. Lately it has been hot and sunny. My FC is hanging around 7-8 in the mornings during this heat spell. Well yesterday is when I...

    Are you on the fence about going to TFP?

    I have been around pools all my life. Found TFP last year after installing a new pool. I went back and forth to the pool store questioning myself and my Taylor 2006. Finally through the advice of many here I said "David you need to trust your own results and quit going in there." I opened this...

    I have something to get off my chest!

    It is all of your faults! I came here last year, ordered my Taylor2006c and have been a testing addict ever since! I have ordered extra reagents already. I know what my water is and I still wanna test it! If I keep it up I will have to start volunteering to take care of my whole neighborhoods...

    Quick question

    I have been using liquid chlorine to open my pool and took it to slam level. Now that it is down what number should I be kicking my SWG on? I have my FC @ 9.4. 9-11 is pool maths daily target numbers. Im thinking I should kick it on 20% now to see how much it jumps. Not planning on swimming...

    Pool store and my test.

    So I have been checking my water everyday for the last couple of weeks and thought I'd compare my results to the pool store. They have the BioGuard system. My Taylor kit is reading 0 CH the pool store says I have 278 Total hardness...I understand this also includes Mag. But shouldn't I be...

    Algaecide causing foam?

    When my cleaner comes to the surface it creates a thin layer of fizzing white residue that goes away pretty quick. It looks soapy. My numbers are near perfect. Water is crystal clear. I added my salt (3400 ppm) Sunday. Tuesday I added Boric Acid (30ppm). The pool company closed my pool in...

    Percentage and run time

    After reading for a half hour trying to figure this out I still wanna ask to be sure. So...when I open my pool up this spring and say I wanna run it 24/7, my IC20 is set for 10%. Does that mean that my cell will only be energized and start the 10,000 hr clock at 2.4 hrs. per day? My cell has...

    Smaller pool harder to maintain?

    I've taken care of saltwater and coral aquariums and know the smaller the aquarium, quicker things can go wrong with water quality. My question is does that pertain to my 7k gallon to your 20k?

    PST Pool Supplies..Amazon purchase

    I ordered a Taylor kit from them to give as a gift for Christmas. It showed up today and the DPD powder had all spilled out inside the kit...a big nasty mess. I called them and left a message, within 5 minutes they called back. I told them to just send me a bottle and I would be fine. He...
