    West Texas PH help

    Wow, awesome info - thank you so much! I think I am going to shoot for less acid more often and try to go from 7.8 to 7.4 instead of trying to hit 7.2 with each treatment. I forgot to add, I am on a well - I’ve tested my fill water before but did not record it. I will test it this weekend to...

    West Texas PH help

    Thanks for the reply. Here is what I am using. Is this good or should I opt for something else? I was thinking my pool size has a lot to do with it. When you break it down: I’m using less than 1/2 gal per 10K gal a week which doesn’t sound as bad. I’m going to retest TA before the weekend, I’m...

    Guess what...... I just got the M600

    About to get a cleaner and am looking at the M600 and M500. Sounds like the Wifi on the M600 is nice to have. Seems like the 3rd brush on the M500 doesn't really add any benefits. Is it worth it to get the M600? Any other features to note? Does anyone know how these compare to models like the...

    Lubbock, TX Pool

    Sorry for the late response! They’re still finishing up construction on the pool so we haven’t been able to enjoy it yet. I decided to put the table in because I love just sitting at the pool bar when we vacation in Mexico. I think it will get the most use in our pool (we don’t have kids). We...

    Lots of work done the last couple weeks - gunite, tile, autocover track, coping, and the start of the wall. Our PB says we will have water in it by next Monday 9/9. They are moving fast and working every day, but I will believe it when I see it! Just ordered my test kit bundle! Just convinced my...
