    Chemical storage - outside garage? Check. Don't mix muriatic acid and chlorine? So now I need a 2nd storage location outside garage???

    Thanks for the tips! Would it make a difference if my chlorine is all 3” pucks, in individually sealed plastic bags as opposed to bulk in a not-well-sealed 50# container? I never use liquid chlorine, which I agree would be more volatile.

    Chemical storage - outside garage? Check. Don't mix muriatic acid and chlorine? So now I need a 2nd storage location outside garage???

    So after about 10 years I learned that hard way that you shouldn't store pool chemicals in a Central Texas garage. Lots of rust on things, especially on a mountain bike that was stored on the wall about 5' from my pool shelf. All spokes blown out, etc..... It could've been worse! I bought a...

    Opinions on cartridge filters

    Thanks for the responses everyone. Sounds like I just need to keep a closer eye on the pressure and clean more frequently.

    Opinions on cartridge filters

    I have a Jandy CL340 with a 12,000 plaster pool (SWG). With regular (6 month) cleaning, I got almost 5 years out of the original Jandy/Zodiac cartridges. After replacing them with Pleatco's, I've cleaned them three times in 15 months when the pressure increases around 10psi (from 10-20). Does...

    Replacement options for Jandy AquaPure 1400 - move to Jandy TruClear or others?

    Great feedback Ping! I admit I am sometimes lax at keeping the pool balanced. The scale seems to form pretty quickly (1-2 months) but I always thought it was just due to the mineral content in the water but there's been minimal city water added to the pool since filling 10 years ago. "sensor...

    Replacement options for Jandy AquaPure 1400 - move to Jandy TruClear or others?

    Hi, I have a 12,000 gallon in-ground pool in Austin Texas (lots of mineral in water) that was originally installed with a JandyAquaPure 1400 SWG. When it’s working it seems to work well but in ten years I’ve had to replace the control board once, the flow sensor at least twice, and I’m coming...

    Jandy AquaPure 1400 to 700 Retrofit

    Thanks ping! I actually noticed that the PB installed the 700, and when I replaced it I accidentally replaced it with a 1400. This is what has been running for 3 years and it lasted actually less time than the original 700. For the cost difference, I'm leaning towards going back to the 700...

    Jandy AquaPure 1400 to 700 Retrofit

    All, My PB installed the larger Jandy AquaPure 1400 SWG in our 10,000 gallon pool and I've already replaced the cell once in 7 years and it's out again. I was looking at options (different brand?) but, for cost reasons, will probably just replace the cell with another AquaPure. But I've...
