    need help with pump setting

    Welcome to TFP:wave: I do not have a VS pump but most of the folks here run their pump at the least setting possible. I see that you do not have SWG so I would recommend testing till you just about get skimmer action, this is usually @ 800-900 rpm and then set it 100-200 rpm higher. Hopefully...

    New Pool Trouble

    Hi I see that your plaster has mini pebbles so your pool should feel like fine to medium sandpaper. Our pool has larger pebbles in it so it feels like coarse sandpaper however it does not seem to bother our grand kids. Hopefully others who have mini pebbles will chime in:cheers:

    New Pool Trouble

    Welcome to TFP:wave: Your pool looks great and I am confused as to how rough is your pool. We have pebbles in our pool plaster and there is some texture to it but I would not refer to it as being rough. Hopefully others will chime in:cheers: I see that you have a SWG, when did they add the salt...

    NE FL, Signing Contract Mon, So many questions...

    I really think you should try to negotiate for a cheaper price.. there really is not much extra but some pvc and connectors. It should not be that much for the plumber to add some extra returns. [emoji15]

    What measuring device do you all use?

    OP I use a hard plastic 2 cup measuring cup. I use gloves when pouring the MA into the measuring cup and I pour carefully over the side of the pool as you do not want to get any on the coping. If you get some on the coping immediately wash off with pool water as it will eat into the coping. I...

    I goofed up with new plaster. Options?

    Can you post some pics? Our PB intentionally did not acid wash aggressively so our pool looked mottled for a few years..... Our pool looked mottled however with time it all filled in and looks uniform today. Keep in mind that everytime you acid wash you remove a few mm of plaster. Brushing will...

    SWG is getting bad should I get one that is bigger capacity or smaller(40 vs 25)

    I would go for the T-15 turbo cell. Bigger is better. You would run it at a lesser % which in turn would result in longevity of cell.

    Test kit refills

    Irlizard as I recall your chemicals are usually good for a couple of years provided you store them in a cool place. I keep my chemicals in a cool place in the house. All my chemicals are dated and the new ones that I don’t use I place in a zip lock bag for storage. Hopefully other experts will...
