    skimmer - closed one line

    I still don't know many things about my pool. I moved in 3 months ago and have been using it for only 10 days. I have no idea what pump i have, besides it's a single speed and a sand filer. I can only estimate that this is a 23-25k gallon pool. I use TF-100 test. CYA -30, TH - 320, TA - 120, Ph...

    skimmer - closed one line

    I apologize for delayed response. Hard time at work. Here is a pic of what i think you refer to. I tried to close all other valves on the return line and open only that one. No water movement from this at all but the infloor system is still working, so now i think that this valve can be just for...

    skimmer - closed one line

    Yes, the spa is higher and when I open the Spa make up line (or I called spa inlet) spills over into the pool. I can't find any "water feature" so have no idea what's this valve for. THANK YOU! Still don't know why the MD in the pool is not working and where is connected :)

    skimmer - closed one line

    Everything possible. I'm trying to figure this out. I took a pic of the debris canister and the equipment. there are two lines point to the canister. I THINK , one is going from the skimmer and the second one is coming from the spa drain (not sure). I labeled what I know so far, although it can...

    skimmer - closed one line

    My first pool was with the in-floor system and I loved it. This is the second one (I moved 3 months ago) and trying ot figure everything out. I just finished re-plastering so never actually used the pool. I don't like all the hoses in the pool, but it's my personal opinion.

    skimmer - closed one line

    Thank you fop your reply. I don't think it's debries. As you can see on those pics, it looks like the other line is closed up with a plastic plug. This pool has an in-floor cleaning system. so how all debries from the bottom of the pool are going to be removed if the main drain is not...

    skimmer - closed one line

    Hello! I just moved to a home with quite old pool (20-25yo). Just finished replastering and the pool is back and running. However, besides several small leaks around filter, i relized that the skimmer has one line closed. in my opinion also the main drain is not working at all. I have a...

    Facts Hard to Come by on SWG.

    Thank you All for your comments. That's was my impression that they want to sell whole package. The pool at my previous house was a chlorine pool and I was taking care of it by myself (thanks to you all here). It was my first pool ever but I did it :) . I'm planning to take care of this pool too...

    Facts Hard to Come by on SWG.

    I just bough a house with a 15,000 pool in terrible condition. I'm going to replaster it and upgrade the equipment to Pentair easytouch 8 , Intliflow VFS pump and gas water heater. I ask how much would cost to add a salt cell and the price came for the cell, power supply and salt the systems...

    Pump/filter schedule

    Thank you both for your reply and suggestions. Jimrahbe, I was not even aware about the "water turnover". A few months ago I bought a house with a pool and as the first time pool wonder I am trying to figure out many things and get an expedite course of a pool maintenance :D. The previous...

    Pump/filter schedule

    Hello! I have a question about the schedule. What is better, to run the filter for shorter time (6-7 hours) at higher speed, or longer (8-9 hours) at lower speed? I am trying to balance the energy costs with the quality of water. I have a sand filter, Pantair inteliflo vari pump, in-floor...

    Different Total Alkalinity tests

    Other numbers are quite close, TA is the only "problematic" one.

    Different Total Alkalinity tests

    I have question about TA results. I finally got my TF-100 and that test shows TA 120, I also have BioGuard test (previous owners left that test behind) which gives TA 70, I have also results from 3 different pool stores (I know what do you think about their tests) but their results (from all 3...

    Setup the waterfall with Pentair Easy Touch

    Thank you Jim, That was my plan to have several small drains/refills. Thankfully my pool is higher that the wash (that's how Arizonans call dry rivers) so the gravity should do the job. Thanks again! Daniel

    Setup the waterfall with Pentair Easy Touch

    Hi Jim Jimrahbe, do you have mid if i ask one more question "how to ...?" I was wondering if there is any way to drain water from the pool? For now, I can do backwash but I am not sure if I should run backwash for extended period until half of the pool was drained. I should drain at least half...

    Setup the waterfall with Pentair Easy Touch

    74, >>> Sorry, Daniel is fine :) You must have a "lite" version of the EasyTouch if you only have two feature circuits.. ?? >> Possible, I am not sure :D What is SillWay? The Circuit name can be anything you want.. But each time you use it, it must be the same... >>> It's a typo, Should...

    Setup the waterfall with Pentair Easy Touch

    OK, I found time to play with the settings today. 1. Skypalace, I tried your manual way and after I pressed F nothing happened. I saw the both valves changed positions once I pushed V button to Fill position, but the pump did not start (the pump was showing "0 RPM"). Why the manual way does not...

    Setup the waterfall with Pentair Easy Touch

    The first is called "spa" and it turns on the spa jets and the water heater. The second one is called "spa light", and the third one "pool light". 2 and 3 does the same thing: turn light in the pool and spa (I think you can not separate them anyway, so I am not sure why they did that) . The 4th...

    Setup the waterfall with Pentair Easy Touch

    Sorry for my delayed response. Crazy time here. First, thank you for your reply. Jimrahbe, I am not sure what valve you are talking about. Are you taking about that one circled in red or in blue? The red one I use only for backwash, I have never touched the blue one so I am not sure what is for...
