    Acid wash

    Apologies. Just updated my signature. The profile section does not have an option to choose Pebble Tech CYA = Above 100 PH = 7.1 FC = 2 TA = 90 It is around the waterline of both SPA and Pool. We just moved into this house so we have not done anything else.

    Hello , I am planning to drain my pool and wanted to acid wash as I noticed a black - green line around the rim. I have read that acid wash takes years out of your pool. Should I acid wash the pool? Thank you

    Pool Vaccum

    Does anyone have used these? Are there any reviews or recommendations on these? I talked to one of the pool guys I know and he said they do not clean up good as they should. Where and what I can read to get more insight into this before making a purchase?

    New House old pump and filter

    More pictures. So my questions again: 1. Why do I have 2 timers and why the timers have 2 ons and 2 offs trippers? 2. How do they work? 3. Does my spa has any relation with the pool filters or these timers?

    Pool after a thunderstorm

    Wanted to close the loop on this. After using the SLAM process, the cloudiness did not go. I ended up cleaning my filters and that was the trick. The pool was back to what it was. Not really sure if the gauge on the filter is providing accurate reading. Thanks for all your help

    CH has been low since I re-filled the pool, it could be because of the soft water. I will check the numbers and get back to this thread
