    Brown stains caused by liquid chlorine?

    There are a few spots where the gunite is showing through but this is definitely not that. I haven't used the splashless bleach or silver algaecide. I'll post the water test results this weekend. I have noticed the sandstone coping is starting to chip easily.

    Brown stains caused by liquid chlorine?

    I've owned the pool (and house) for almost 6 years. When I first moved in the pool plaster was white with no stains. After about a year I switched from chlorine tablets to liquid chlorine (bought at Wal Mart.) Slowly but steadily I've developed brown stains that I tried using the ascorbic...

    Help with suction side leak.....

    Found the source. The little knobs on top of my jandy valves that when tightened seal off the shaft were really loose. I tightened them all and the air leak stopped. Thanks for the help folks.

    Help with suction side leak.....

    The pool cleaner pump has a small discharge leak, its a slow weep. That area of my backyard doesn't get much sun and stays damp most of the time. I've looked for leaks, the pool cleaner pump discharge has a small weep when its in operation. Maybe that's where I'm leaking in causing the...

    Help with suction side leak.....

    Thanks for that info. That's on me, I changed out those fittings a couple years ago. The right stuff was on there from the original install.

    Help with suction side leak.....

    I lubed the orings (strainer basket and basket drain). The filter pressure gauge on my filter is about a year old but I hadn't thought of that. Will make sure to check it. Here's a picture of my equipment.

    Help with suction side leak.....

    I have a Jandy stealth pump and a Jandy cartridge filter. The pool is about 15 years old and all the equipment is original to when the pool was installed. The pump strainer basket empties out every night. The pump does eventually prime once it runs for about 15-20 seconds. There is an air...

    Help with suction side leak.....

    In ground pool. The last couple of months I've noticed air bubbles at the pool water returns. The pump suction basket empties out every night. I've replaced the suction basket o-ring. Done the soap test on all the fittings/joints/strainer drain plug, done the running water test too and can't...

    Not using pucks or a lot of shock but CYA keeps going up

    I don't understand why I'm constantly fighting high CYA after numerous drain and refills, stopped using the chlorine pucks and started using liquid bleach. Shock the pool about every month or two and my CYA still is high (70). I didn't think anything besides the pucks and the shock added CYA...

    CYA level keeps going up

    The CYA level in my pool this summer and fall has been high (90-100). I've drained water out and knocked the CYA down but it immediately starts going up again. Did not have this problem last year (in second year of owning house with pool.) The only thing I changed from last year is I'm using...
