    Which filters do you use for the S200, Active20, or Warrior SE?

    Just ordered a Dolphin S200 from Marina Pool last week and when I opened the box, I noticed that it came with a 2nd set of filters that are pleated. Any advice on which filters to use? My pool doesn't get a whole lot of leaves, just mostly small debris from the wind.

    Scale on my Circupool RJ45+ plates already???

    I bought and installed a Circupool RJ45+ back in early March and convinced my friend to let me install one in her pool as well. Mine has been rock solid from the start. I made sure to balance my pool before installing it and I specifically concentrated on keeping the CSI on the negative side...

    Troubleshooting intermittent low pump basket water issue ...

    I recently installed a Circupool RJ-45 SWG and have been having a strange issue. I have my VSP set to run 24/7 with two overlapping programs at 1100 RPM's. I leave my SWG on 24/7 as well and run it at around 30%. I'm still playing with the percentage until I get it dialed in. When I come out...

    How to program my Hayward SP3202VSP pump to run for 24 hours/day?

    I just bought a Circupool RJ-45+ SWG and want to increase my pump run time to 24 hours a day so I can generate chlorine at a lower output level, which I hope will increase the life of my salt cell. If I set the timer on my Hayward SP3202VSP to run from say 12am to 12am the next day, it treats...

    Pool light bulb socket?

    So, I'm helping a friend with her pool light which doesnt work. I got the fixture out onto the pool deck and to my surprise, when i opened up the seal to remove the light bulb, i noticed a really big socket. The one in my pool is smaller and matches what Leslie's sells at the store. They didnt...

    At what point do I add Polyquat 60?

    I'm about to do my first ever Ascorbic Acid treatment. I'm just waiting for my Metal Magic sequestrant to arrive. I know I need to drop the pH down to 7.2 and let the FC drop near 0 before adding the AA. I don't want to risk an algae bloom when I drop my FC, so I need to know at what point do...

    Confusion with metal test for stains ...

    So, in early March I drained and acid washed my pool and the plaster cleared up nicely. This is the original plaster and it is quite worn in a few areas. The house was built in 1966, but I'm not sure about the pool. My family has lived in this house since 1982, so it's at least that old and...

    I need a replacement drain cover for my spa ...

    So, I was inside my spa with the water 90% drained, trying to clean the horrible calcium buildup I had on the tile. Long story short, I wasn't paying close enough attention and accidently put my heal through the spa drain, breaking it into about 20 pieces.:grrrr: This is an old Anthony Pool...

    Is there any reason I can't use a regular pool pump to replace a booster pump?

    I just upgraded my equipment pad with a new Hayward Tristar VS pump and a Pentair Clean and Clear Plus 320 cartridge filter. I have a Polaris 280 running off an old 3/4 hp booster pump that has seen better days. I was thinking that maybe I would swap out the booster pump with my old main pump...
