    Intermittent "flow" light issues - RESOLVED

    Fix emailed to us by Circupool. We didn't have the jumper in the picture, so we just used a standard wire.

    Intermittent "flow" light issues - RESOLVED

    RESOLVED... Finally gave up and called Circupool's customer service. They knew all about the issue and emailed us directions to add a jumper wire to the box. Solved the problem instantly.

    Hayward single speed. I don't know the model but it's pushing a ton of water.

    Intermittent "flow" light issues - RESOLVED

    Installed new Circupool SJ-20 this season and can't get it going right. The "flow" light turns from green to red every few minutes, stopping the chlorine generation, then turns green a few minutes later. I've checked the electrical connections and they all appear to be fine. I've opened up the...

    What IS this stuff? Algae, pollen, dead algae??

    No hidden places for algae. Molded walk-in white steps... they're clean.

    What IS this stuff? Algae, pollen, dead algae??

    Just eyeballing it with the scale on the side of the tube. You know, the one where you add the water/reagent mix until you can't see the black dot anymore? It's just under 50.

    What IS this stuff? Algae, pollen, dead algae??

    I need help determining what I'm dealing with. I have a greenish/yellowish substance collecting at the bottom of my pool (not the walls) in considerable quantities. I've been reading all the threads on mustard algae and pollen, so I know it doesn't sound like mustard algae - no difference in the...

    Bleach shortage

    Does that mean I can't use cal-hypo tabs in a pool that I also use liquid bleach in? Or am I getting confused about trichlor?

    Bleach shortage

    I should add, my pool store sells chlorine pucks WITHOUT stabilizer added. I didn't know there was such a thing. My husband bought a small bucket, but I'm really not sure about those... good idea?

    Bleach shortage

    I'm wondering what happens when New York State closes non-essential businesses, shortly before I want to open my pool. I bought about 25 gallons of 10% bleach at the pool store (which yes, I know degrades quickly depending on storage temperature) but I'm really wondering if I should buy some...

    Small particles not being filtered by sand filter

    I'll add, he also saw the bottles of bleach on my porch and told me that's why my pool was cloudy. Because I was using the wrong kind of bleach!! I needed the one from the pool store!! You can see why it wouldn't surprise me if he was wrong about the filter.

    Small particles not being filtered by sand filter

    When we opened the pool this year, we had a lot of algae. SLAMed it, then had a bunch of dead algae at the bottom. When I'd vacuum it up, you'd see a cloud coming out of the returns. Figured something was broken inside my sand filter, so I had the service tech come out. He took everything apart...

    Something's wrong... possible broken lateral... what should I do first?

    Opened the pool and having some issues. 1) Water won't clear up - very cloudy after a week and a half or two weeks despite SLAM. 2) Still debris on the bottom. Left hubby in charge last week while I was out of town, so I thought he just didn't vac enough. Did it tonight and there's yuck...

    How do you secure a 10' drive-through gate in a wooden privacy fence?

    Pool's in an fantastic, now it's time to pass inspection. Have a fence gate that's got me stymied. We have a six foot wooden privacy fence around the yard with a ten foot wide drive gate. Two five foot wide panels meet in the middle and latch (poorly) together. I'm willing to redo that section...

    Nervous about switching to TFP

    Make the change to TFP! You'll be happy you did! We just switched this year and the water has never been so clear before. I thought it was clear before, but no. This is sparkling. You could read a book through it. Just fantastic.

    Ideal chlorine level:Where did the CYA / FC table come from? Looking for verification

    Thanks for the links! The article MannyT linked to satisfies my curiosity completely. I'm feeling better and will definitely be following the CYP/FC chart on TFP.

    Ideal chlorine level:Where did the CYA / FC table come from? Looking for verification

    Our pool was new at the end of last summer. I like what I hear on TFP and think I want to follow the protocol given here, but frankly I'm scared. Everything else I read tells me the chlorine level should be low (1-3ppm) and doesn't mention CYA at all. The one site I found that did mention it...

    Gas heater sizing for 28' AGP

    Thanks for the advice. I think I'm going to ask the gas plumber how big I can go and see from there. As for the heat pump, they're not as efficient heating with colder outdoor temps, so again we're back to that extending the season problem. Living where I do, I'm really excited to be able to...

    Gas heater sizing for 28' AGP

    CJadamec, do you heat your pool all of may and september, or just the summer? That's what I'm really worried about. Will it let me expend the season. Thanks.

    Gas heater sizing for 28' AGP

    Soon-to-be owners of a 28' AGP. Buying a gas heater because we want to extend the swimming season from 5/1 - 9/31 in Rochester, NY (average temperature in May is 57 degrees). The salesman who sold us the pool insists 125 BTU gas heater is sufficient. He says online calculators are for IGPs which...
