    Taking care of my pool

    Hi FF, yes, the reason for the drain would be for the high CH. The pool guy started asking me if I need any services such as draining, I did mention to him I know how to do it on my own. That's when he told me about bleaching the walls. I told him my walls were fine. He said that there is always...

    Taking care of my pool

    I am thinking of adding borates to the pool, to help manage the Ph and keep bees, wasps and pigeons out of the water. We had no idea that we had so many other animals around the yard, before the pool was built. I think some around us has a wasp nest, and this morning I found something that...

    Taking care of my pool

    Thank you, Knauss. I have adjusted the flow to a lower speed a few months ago, it has helped a little not to much, it will always mess with the PH unfortunately. I am not sure how to keep the CH from raising, when I drain and fill with new water, it's always at 400. I will need to drain in the...

    Taking care of my pool

    The water is from the Las Vegas Valley Water District. The PH is kind of hard to manage, we do lower it to keep the TA at 70 and CSI down. When we had the pool built the designer suggested that we have a spill over on the spa, and it wraps around the spa, sounded good at the time. The water...

    Hi Will, I just saw this post. I am feeling more confident with the testing and adding the chemicals that are needed. I am having an issue with keeping my CH down. I think I may drain 50% of my water this weekend. I may need to do this every opening of the pool for the summer or try to figure...

    Thank you Kim, I don't use the tablets, I use bleach, MA and when needed baking soda. My tap water reads at a 325, not sure if that has anything to do with it. I keep thinking it's something I am doing with the chemicals. Dirk, I would like to hear about you adventures when you have time. :)...

    Polywood chairs on sun shelf?

    Do you need to cover the polywood furniture in the winter or summer when your not using it? I get tired of covering my current outside furniture. Is it worth the cost for polywood, I know it does look very nice.

    Wrong Grout Color

    When we had our pool built we choose a tile that didn’t look the same when they installed it as the sample did. We didn’t like it and our builder understood . They removed it and installed a new tile we actually liked more. They did not give us any problems.
