    Normal PH with High Alkalinity

    Texas Splash is there a way to view signatures if I am using a smart phone instead of pc? I see people mention them, and I believe I even created my own, but I do not automatically see it within these discussions.

    Normal PH with High Alkalinity

    Thank you Texas Splash. That is what I was hoping to hear. I knew I’d be addressing the PH at some point and was hoping the TA could wait. I will definitely be ordering a kit. I am finally gaining a bit more confidence and enjoying this learning experience. So thankful for this group and the...

    Normal PH with High Alkalinity

    I have had a new intex type pool (5,100 gal) up for a few weeks. I use a summer waves SWG and intex sand filter. I have been monitoring with test strips just to make sure I don’t see any crazy changes and finally took my water to get tested at a pool store yesterday. I am a little confused...

    Salt Water Generator vs Sand Pump Run Time (Florida)

    Thank you. I’m still not finding how to understand the ppm conversation to cups or lbs but at least I can get started and peek around more later.

    Salt Water Generator vs Sand Pump Run Time (Florida)

    I am sitting outside for over an hour trying to figure out how much of this to hang in the pool 😩. I read another post where someone used 2.5 lbs for 5300 gallons. We have 5145 gallons but left about 2/3 inches out (up to my daughters chin). I’m guessing 2 lbs would be sufficient for now?

    Salt Water Generator vs Sand Pump Run Time (Florida)

    mknauss I am trying to complete my profile on pool math. My SWG says “maximum chlorine output (gas gram per hour) is 5.5 g/hr”. I’m not sure what I put for 24 hr salt output. It does not list my SWG so I can auto select it. Can you help? I went here to try and figure out what 50 ppm CYA...

    Oh goodness, see and I thought I was adding half of what would be needed since only half of the pool was full. I did not get to any kind of calculator yet but thank you for mentioning that I will have fun with that later. Thank you so much.

    Will publix bleach work? I thought I saw something about 8% but this reads 5.7% available chlorine. I put in 4 cups yesterday when pool was half full and we paused work.

    Salt Water Generator vs Sand Pump Run Time (Florida)

    Thank you so much mknauss. I am knee deep in pool school right now and I think I’ve spent 30 minutes alone trying to understand CYA. We just finished filling pool. If I understand correctly, I’m putting in 3 bags of salt, running filter for 24 hours, then turning on SWG. I’m still not sure...

    Salt Water Generator vs Sand Pump Run Time (Florida)

    Texas Splash thank you. I was just going to try running them for 10 hours first. 17 is unattainable especially since we’ll be swimming. The generator has a boost mode that allows it to run in less time (9 hours vs 17) but I don’t know if I can use it daily. I believe it said just to use it if...

    Salt Water Generator vs Sand Pump Run Time (Florida)

    Hello. I set up my first sand filter (Intex SF80110-1) and Summer Waves Salt Water System (the ONLY thing available) to a Bestway 16x48 pool. The Summer Waves system states that is needs to run 17 hours for my pool size! The sand filter only needs to run 4 per the manual. Is it normal to have...
