    Low TA but stable pH?

    FC: 5 pH: 7.8 TA: 50 CH: 390 CYA: 40 So my TA is on the lower side and has seemingly slowly decreasing over time. However my pH is more stable than it's been since having the pool replastered about a year ago. I've added just under a gallon of acid since the 1st of the month. I've been dropping...

    1 Inch Return Fitting/Eyeball Options?

    Awesome! Thank you! Guess I just wasn't looking hard enough or in the right places. Can't beat that price either!

    1 Inch Return Fitting/Eyeball Options?

    Great! Thanks for the help! I searched for hours and couldn't find the right size. I'll probably just order one and try it out. As for the company that refinished our pool it is not surprising as they left us with much larger issues. It was a nightmare dealing with them from start to finish. I...

    1 Inch Return Fitting/Eyeball Options?

    That certainly seems like what I would need. However, in the Q&A section of that product someone asked the exact question I am and the INYO Product Specialist said he couldn’t locate a fitting to fit inside a 1 inch pipe. I’ll shoot them an email about it and ask. Thanks!

    1 Inch Return Fitting/Eyeball Options?

    @Texas Splash I have seen those which I believe are the same as what's in my pictures. The "slip inlet" all seem to be 1.5 inch which is what I have here. I'm guessing that's a standard return pipe size for most pools? So essentially I would be trying to put something 1.5 inch in diameter into...

    1 Inch Return Fitting/Eyeball Options?

    I'm looking for a possible solution or an option to add some sort of eyeball to my pool returns. The current returns appear to be just 1 inch pipes in the side the walls of the pool. Some are covered by the finish and some you can see the end of the pipe in the wall. Is there anything that...

    Ok sounds good. I'll pick up some Calcium Chloride to get it up to 250 and keep an eye on it. Thanks for all the help and advice.

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    Sorry duraleigh, I didn't see your reply. I just went out and checked the CH with my Taylor Kit (I've only been using that and the TF-100 to test) and I came up with 150ppm this morning on two separate tests.

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    Ok got it. In order to keep the CSI positive for the time being is it wise/safe to push any of the parameters used to calculate outside of their recommended range? Currently it seems as if I can raise my TA to about 90 to help get up closer to a CSI at zero. But with CH where its at I'm not...

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    Alright guys, time to check back in. So it's been a few months and my CH is still sitting about 150 and has not gone up at all. I've been checking it every few weeks and adding minimal amounts of fill water as needed but did also have to drain some water during a very heavy rain storm recently...

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    I have read the lower than recommended levels can damage plaster by seeking out the calcium in the plaster? Is this not a concern? I just want to be sure there is not a point at which you would recommend raising this by adding calcium chloride as I was starting to become concerned it was too...

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    Hey Marty, been about a month and a half since initial fill after new plaster. I have added quite a bit of fill water since then but CH has remained right around 160. At what point should I be adding chemicals to raise this to the recommended levels?

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    Wow you're fast. Thanks Marty! Ok, so still removing that stuff on the surface efficiently. That clears it up. Definitely not removing water. I have added some fill water to top it off as we are still having weather consistently in the 90s and the level was getting lower but that's it. I'll...

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    Ok back with a little update. Keeping my FC around 5.0 ppm and still working to get that TA down to around 80. As of this weekend it was right around 100 so getting there slowly. When the pH gets up to about 7.8 or higher, I'm adding MA to drop it down to 7.2. CYA is up to about 35ppm. However...

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    This is going to open a whole new can of worms of questions haha. I've got no idea on the time or the RPM needed to turn enough water over per day. Is there a formula or somewhere I can find this info at?

    Thanks Marty. Yes, I do have a Pentair Intelliflo VS pump. It's currently running 24hrs @ 2200 RPM. That is what the PB set it at before they left the day after filling.

    HELP: New Plaster Start-Up Questions

    Ok so I had a really busy last few days but finally have some time to jump back on here with an update. I've been testing the water daily and adding liquid chlorine and muriatic acid based on the pool math app to bring the pH down to 7.2 and the FC to right around 3ppm. I also added the five...

    I'd order the Puritech but it would not arrive until late next week. Will definitely go that route next time though. I'll swing by Home Depot tomorrow to pick some up and follow your guy's instructions. I'll check back in tomorrow or Monday afternoon with some numbers and let you guys know how...
