    Is this cover tight enough?

    Is this cover tight enough?

    PB closed our new pool a couple weeks ago and I noticed today after some rain that the cover has a little sag to it. Does it need to be tightened a bit more? This is a brand new “micro mesh” cover and we are in southwest lower MI so we do get quite a bit of snow. Thanks!!

    pH: How low can I go??

    Up to this point, I’ve had kids swimming/splashing nearly every day. I can try pointing the jets up to see if that helps. I currently don’t have a water feature/pump that could help but may look into it if there are any suggestions!

    pH: How low can I go??

    I’m trying to balance my TA in my new fiberglass pool. With my well fill water having a TA if 350, it has been a slow process over the past month. I’ve added MA in multiple doses to get to 190, but still have far to go! I’ve been taking pH down to 7.0 then aerating/waiting for it to rise to...

    Extremely high TA but can’t get pH up?

    We will have an auto fill but it is not hooked up yet- have been topping off with the hose as needed. Fill water is 7.8 pH and 350 TA. Unfortunately our swim season here in Michigan will be coming to a close in the next couple weeks. Hoping to get things lowered as much as possible before...

    Extremely high TA but can’t get pH up?

    Hello! Our pool was just completed in mid- August. Fill well water has CH of 350, TA of 350, and pH of 7.8. See details of our system in my signature. We’ve only just taken over pool care from the PB about 2 weeks ago, so I’m not sure what chemicals were added up to that point. Initially, TA...

    PAL light cover question

    I have a new pool with a PAL LED light system installed. They are smaller lights, maybe 3” in diameter? There are clear covers on the lights that I’d like to clean underneath. Can I remove this cover underwater or will I be letting water into the electrical? Thanks!

    SLAM question

    No, it is outdoor. Original CYA was added by the pool contractor right after pool was filled- 1st reading I got mid-August was 30-50 ppm (only had test strips at that point). Pool was subsequently filled completely plus has been backwashed/vacuumed frequently due to construction so I’m...

    SLAM question

    Hello! This is my first post! My family just had a new pool installed last month and we’re finally on the home stretch! I’m enjoying learning about all the ins and out of pool chemistry as I have a background in biology/chemistry. I included the description of the pool in my signature (18k...
