    Hayward T-15 cell showing 3500ppm; K-1766 test showing 8600ppm 😱

    You guys...this is why you can’t trust a blonde to do your water testing!! I just re-tested and got 3400. As you all figured out, I must have had too much water the first 2 times 🤦‍♀️ I am so sorry to have wasted your time this afternoon!! But I am so grateful for this forum for always...

    Hayward T-15 cell showing 3500ppm; K-1766 test showing 8600ppm 😱

    I will double check. I swear, I read and re-read the directions to make sure I was doing it correctly. I remember doing 10mL both times... but I’ll check again!

    I used 10mL of pool water. Then it says multiply the number of drops of R-0718 by 200 to get your ppm.

    Btw, the cell was very clean when we checked it. Going to have the pool store check the salt level now. We’ll see what their measurement is...

    No, definitely not 20 bags!! Maybe 5 total over the past several weeks. I hadn’t thought of it that way. Would it be abnormal for my salt test to go bad? The bottles say good until 01/21. But it took me 43 drops to get it to turn salmon color both times!

    Followed your directions and these were the results: -26.24V -6.27A 3000PPM, then +26.09V +6.54A 3200PPM, then -26.09V -6.46A 3200PPM We will go clean the cell now. It hasn’t been too long since we last cleaned it. But we’ll double check it. I made sure I followed...

    Help! Our pool build was complete Feb 2020. Things have been going well with water chemistry until recently. We have been adding salt the past month or so as the cell keeps saying low salt, so we’ll add a bag or 2 to bring the numbers up and it will be fine for a week or 2, then it will show...

    Pool Finish and Color Viewing Room...TFP Member Sound Off

    Here’s our PebbleSheen Blue Surf with Desert Sand shelf. 3.5’ shallow end, 8’ deep end. This is 3 months old.

    Kim, the shelf seems to be a hit with the kids. My 11 y/o uses it as a wrestling area ? (even in the rain!) Oh, and jumping from the rocks is their absolute fave!! As for the adults, the spa has been the biggest hit so far. We’ve had a very mild spring (unusual), so I’m sure that will change...

    I love watching build threads on this site and was inspired by many things that I saw here while planning & building our pool, so I figured I’d add some finished photos of our project. We’ve been enjoying the pool for a few months now and the maintenance has been easy peasy thanks to all I’ve...

    Pebbletec Sheen Color Help Please!

    We have Blue Surf PS. Installed about 2 months ago. *Sometimes* has a hint of teal...I think Blue Granite may have less chance for teal. That was our 2nd choice. We’re very happy with our Blue Surf choice though! We stressed about it and went to see MANY pools. Here’s a current...

    Kim, Thank you so much for your reply. I do believe they put tablets/pucks in our skimmers, but I’m not 100% sure. We were out of town when they filled and then I’ve been sick for weeks now (not corona...I don’t think ?), so I’ve not been as on top of things as I would have liked to have been...

    I said I add water, but I meant the CYA test mixture ?‍♀️

    Pool has just recently been turned over to us from PB and we’ve been testing and following recommendations from Pool Math. I have a TF-100 test kit. But, I’m having a hard time with the CYA reading. I add water all the way to the top of the tube and yet I can still see the black dot. I have...

    Yes, that points right to a valley where rain water runs (when it rains A LOT). It’s in our woods where there will not be grass, so I guess that should work. Thank you for all the info!!

    Also, how do I know what my filter pressure should be?

    It’s a muddy mess back there right now, so these are the best pics I could get with as close as I could get. I’m guessing this pipe going to nowhere is for the backwash?

    Yay about the easiest! I don’t think we have a backwash hose yet. Not that I know of anyway...

    Yes, the pump is running and PB has been taking care of the pool. We were out of the country for a bit, but back now. I’m going to test the water tomorrow. It was cold and rainy today ?

    Been out of town and then weather delays, but it’s now been plastered, filled and decking poured. Just waiting for Pool School to learn how to work everything. Then on to landscaping. I can’t wait to have my backyard back!! And the kids can’t wait to swim!!!

    It’s been 4 work days. Anywhere from 2-5 guys. We’ve been really impressed with them. They definitely know what they’re doing ?

    Jim, I know what you mean. I’ve seen some photos that make you scratch your head ?. We’ve seen several pools by our builder with great stonework. They’ve been in business for almost 40 years and build a lot of pools in our area. I’m pretty confident they will be able to deliver what we’re...
