    What to do after mouse?

    I have to laugh at all these ‘horror’ stories. You ought to have seen the ‘mess’ a raccoon family left in our pool, a couple of different times. Not to mention the ‘possum incident’. I had to invest in an arsenal of Orbit Yard Enforcers to protect the pool. I have cameras that capture the...

    Beware of Pool Service Companies

    Kinda ironic that, along with hiring a pool service company to manage a pool, we have to train the pool service tech to do it correctly. Then pay him while he’s getting his OJT.

    Unexplained FC Loss

    Resurrecting this thread because I know you have all been waiting breathlessly for my FC test results after the latest calcium chloride addition. As happened the last time, FC crashed after the calcium chloride addition. FC had been rolling right along, consistently day after day, between 8-12...

    The ad says they can’t ship the standards because of airline rules. Are the standards available elsewhere?

    Pool continues to have algae / green sediment on the bottom

    Let’s start with “PoolMath says for a 45000 L pool it should have a CYA level of 39.” Where does Poolmath tell you that?

    Safety Enclosure

    I believe as long as it meets the height (and all other climb-proof feature) requirements from the outside, it’ll be compliant.

    Contract Expiring - Still Not Finished

    I’ll have to dig out my contract to see if there was any language like that in there. I don’t think so, if there was my PB and I would have had an interesting conversation across the kitchen table.

    Contract Expiring - Still Not Finished

    I don’t get this ‘84 day contract’ thing. What it sounds like is if the PB doesn’t finish in the 84 day contract period, he just can walk away with whatever money you have already paid him? Although it’s his fault he didn’t finish? There is no consequence for him, if he doesn’t finish, in the...

    Much rain. What would you do?

    Has anyone ever documented an adverse reaction to the ‘salt water’ draining onto their grass or into flower beds? I haven’t seen it.

    Pentair warranty support

    A knocking sound from a HP usually means low refrigerant. If allowed to continue the compressor may be damaged. You should not use it until it has been serviced.

    Algae blooming nearly weekly. I can’t afford the chlorine anymore

    It would be interesting to see your Poolmath logs to see your FC level day to day. I’m betting we’d see a lot of below min readings.

    Conflicting information for testing CYA

    I have both the pentair and Taylor tests. They don’t really match up too well. Difference of 20 or so .
