    Broken Bolt for Ladder Anchor Wedge

    I'm trying to identify a replacement part for this wedge that holds in my in-ground pool ladder or should I simply go to the hardware store and find a matching bolt to replace the broken one? Pictures of the broken bolt & wedge attached.

    Jandy AquaPure & PLC1400, No Flow

    I'm really hoping to find a solution to have this SWG last one more season because my budget is very tight with this whole pandemic situation. This SWG is over 5 years old at this point...but never had a problem yet. Yes, I know they usually don't last beyond 3-4 years but please read on...

    New Filters, Low PSI?

    After 5 years of using the original Jandy Cartridge filters and the manifold that sits on top, I ordered a new set. I bought Pleatco brand cartridges to try them out given positive reviews I saw. Everything installed without any issue. Pool pump is pulling in water and filling as normal...

    Very Green Open, 1st time in 6 years

    I have my yearly routine down for opening. Pool company comes to remove the cover, puts the cartridge filter together, checks all the connections for leaks, etc. I've had a little green spots here and there in past years. Vacuum, brush, slam and a week later I'm all set. This year I opened...

    Jandy CL460 vs CV460 Filters

    From another thread I posted, I'm buying new cartridge filters for the first time since my pool was built. It is the Jandy CV460 for certain. I see that Pleatco says the CL460 cartridges will work in the CV460? Does anyone know if there is a major difference between the two? Should I aim to...

    Does cold water affect SWG Salinity Readings?

    I've read some people who say cold water can cause the SWG not to read salinity properly. Is there any truth to it? I'm having a problem with my system saying low-salt even after adding 200 lbs in early this week. Panel says pool temperature is 59 degrees at Noon yesterday. My sensor (3...

    Cleaning Concrete Decking Effectively

    We have a pool safety cover that gets installed each year. As you can see from the pictures, we have developed a color difference between the concrete exposed all winter and the part that is covered by the safety cover. I've tried used a low PSI (1500) electric power washer with the 25 degree...

    Jandy AquaPure - Salinity Reading stuck at 0.7, Service Code 144

    Good morning everyone. Pool was opened yesterday by my local pool company. I noticed on the SWG control panel it said SERVICE, Add Salt, error code 144 flashed periodically, and 0.7 salinity reading. The pool company, of course, simply said to add salt and this will go away. I ran the pool...

    Found & fixed air leak in the pump...

    I'm still relatively new to managing a pool (~2 years). This week I had a lot of air under the clear lid to my pool pump. Hmmm....made sure all the skimmers were clean, had plenty of water in the pool (mid-skimmer) and no blockages. Found the article: Pool School - Suction Side Air Leaks "1...
