    Pool pole and nets - Australia

    Sorry to clarify I looked for ProTuff , as I have an existing standard Stanley kit - weighs a ton in plastic and pole like everyone talks about retracts when pushed. So drill holes lock it in. Anyway more recommendations.

    Pool pole and nets - Australia

    Nothing here in OZ - that I can find through usual searches. Just annoying as it actually let me but international delivery in the order. Month later and back to where I was . Least I managed to pick up a whale for the bush.

    Pool pole and nets - Australia

    Hi just trying to get a good pole and leaf/silt net. Had originally ordered the Pro Tuff gear . After a month just told they don’t deliver anymore to OZ. Sad really, great reviews and gear. Buying through Au Amazon just a net is $138…..then delivery. As such looking for suppliers or...

    Poop in and around pool

    Yeah I need something , this morning about 5 little piles within the pool shallow end. Oddly seeing poop under stairs to the pool so it’s not a bat . Need to get a camera up, thinking Possum but apparently poop doesn’t break up in water. Any apps to use a phone (have an old android)...

    Poop in and around pool

    Couple of pics I already cleaned the tiles on the pool - but there normally brown tar dried when I get to them. Pool difficult to see but has patches of what looks like dirt but I am guessing it’s poop As I normally get a few lately. If you leave too long it’s chlorine and scrub on the tiles...

    Poop in and around pool

    Just started to get what looks like poop, dark splats on the tiles. In the pool, looks like bits of dirt in a few places. Initially thought it was gutter mud from birds , but includes my deck now so it’s an animal of sorts. Maybe Bats ?? have upped my chlorine and brushed - can’t work out...

    Winterising Pool Australia

    @AUSpool thanks PH has usually been in the 7.2-7.6 dropping in acid each week to balance as per shop. Seeing the light coming to TFP forum now watching and checking, I believe swg do increase PH so that’s ok I can deal with the small increase. Was more FC loss in a week , but hey like you say...

    Winterising Pool Australia

    Interesting I purposely set my SWG to 4ppm each day I started the week with 10 FC (added chlorine) - just measured today it’s only 3FC about a week. Pool is 28 degrees apparently - it’s rained a little an not many people in the pool this week. Thinking output isn’t hitting the Mark ? is there...

    Winterising Pool Australia

    Hi just wanted some knowledge of how to prepare a pool for winter. Assuming will be pretty much the same as is, maybe reduction in FC ? Appreciate in Brissy we have until maybe May but thought I’d ask whilst learning the ropes.

    Borates in Australia ?

    Interesting - if I can get a reliable read on ph as it’s so subjective to colour match it can 7.2 or 7.6 on my CCL - doesn’t help being red green deficient anyway. I might have to take Borates route to get some stability.

    Pool Match FC Query

    Hi have a paid version of Pool Math - I noted that when I change the actual and target FC it doesn’t update. Even if I add a new log it updates the actual but I can’t change the FC target. I have an actual of 8 that’s my target also but target is showing 5 . Does this default to recommended...

    Borates in Australia ?

    Continue the Australian theme, have been looking into Borates addition. Not been able to find a non commercial boric acid supplier - looking at pool math seems I am looking at 12+ Kilos. I don’t fancy Borax route too much messing around. just seeing if any Aussies have done this, thoughts...

    New Starter Maintenance Confusion

    @mgtfp Thanks - I’ll play safe and watch the CH level now I’ve come to this forum. Baby steps I think my salt is on the higher side but will test. My SWG allows 3500-7000 so always tried to be over mid range - well that was shop tested so all new now. I’ll retest all tomorrow and begin the...

    New Starter Maintenance Confusion

    Hi thanks - Brisbane water hmm pretty hard and damaging to coffee machines I know that . Temps are 28-30 (air temp) give or take a few depending on the day and rain. At 28c it’s 0.7 , 30C it’s 0.68 CSI - pretty close to the 0.6 Min. Not sure how I bring that up ? Oddly my SWG says it’s 28...

    New Starter Maintenance Confusion

    Just running an OCLT test tonight as water appears to have a slight dull or cloudiness. It’s not crystal but a hint of white. Still very clear though. in prep I took my FC 4 , PH 7.6, CYA 70 and CH 300. All looks ok but the CH should be higher in the ideal 340-550 range ? Worth bringing up...

    New Starter Maintenance Confusion

    Just a thought, where should the pool jets point ? Slightly down, or just under the water as long as it’s pushing towards the skimmer ?

    New Starter Maintenance Confusion

    Interesting I actually turned down the RPM of the pump running 10hrs to 1250 - Maybe makes sense to run a couple of hours back at normal level 1450-1900 for quicker skim.

    New Starter Maintenance Confusion

    Quick question regards SWG, I have mixed thoughts on pump running and output. Is there a basic guidance ? Currently reduced to 10 hours a day a 25% should be about 1.9 output for daily loss if I am holding at 6 FC. So is it recommended to reduce pump running altogether or reduce swg output...
