    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Well, I think this will be my last post on this thread. I “opened” the pool to swimming today. My CYA tests crept up to 50 over the last few days, despite the miserable rain we got this weekend. I had Daryl the Dolphin vacuuming the pool nearly constantly for about 4 days. I’d filter all night...

    Maytronics Explorer E30 Dead on Arrival

    I will add that INYO shipped it same day and we got it the following day. I was really happy about that.

    Maytronics Explorer E30 Dead on Arrival

    No, my husband ordered it, and he said the deal from INYO was better...because they were having a sale and we needed some other stuff, so we reached the $1000 dollar mark to get $100 off (as TFP supporters.)

    Maytronics Explorer E30 Dead on Arrival

    100% agreement. It was super simple. It’s nice that there’s lots of room in there and no where to lose the screws. Reminded me of working on my 1980’s Buick Regal, minus all the rust and burnt motor oil, and, and...I digress. The only suggestion I’d have is they could pack them a little...

    Maytronics Explorer E30 Dead on Arrival

    I am so glad I found this. I also got this exact same model, yesterday, and was so disappointed today when it wouldn’t run for more than 20 min, and then would just stop. Filter wasn’t full...cord not tangled...it passed the out of water test... I was out in the rain and cold all day, getting...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    ok, good to know. I do not think temp has affected my tests at all then because a) my pool water has consistently been around 70 and b) I do the test indoors, where it is swelteringly warm lately due to said AC failure and c) CYA test is not first so it has time to warm up.

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Aah. ~70F makes more sense than “room temp” which, seemed weird cuz my pool is outside, not in a room. But yeah, ~70 is about what I imagine a glass of water on my counter would be. I read legal docs and mortgages for a living, and battle with attorneys nearly daily about actual definitions vs...

    I thought I read somewhere it was preferable to do the water tests indoors? The lighting is certainly more consistent inside...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    I actually found that my test solution was a little off. It was supposed to be 50ppm and I found it tested at 30. However, I got to see the turbidity, which I wasn’t getting with my pool water. My pool water was just clear every time so I really couldn’t fathom how the dot would disappear. I...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Yes, I have these. It’s how I learned to do the test bc “till the dot disappears” just didn’t make sense. My water was always clear, no turbidity, so I used the samples and THEN I got it.

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Yes, I did put some in last year, but I figured with the amount that was drained out, and with all the snow melt/rain and the amount I added from the hose, it would be gone.

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    I have tested my water twice today (as often as my workday will allow) and my FC has stayed at 12. CYA was 40 both times (in between 30 and 40 actually, but I guess I should round up) so I’m not going to add anymore stabilizer. I think it’s fine, but I’ll keep testing it to make sure it doesn’t...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Ok, I see a question as to how I determined 34k gallons...I figured that out myself based on how many water deliveries we got and gal/min x how many minutes we ran the hose to top it off. It’s a little low right now, so it could be closer to 35k when it’s totally full. (I also have a leak, but...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    I had NO stabilizer in my water at all, because we got the pool completed late in the season last year, and had no pump or filter, so all I added was enough chlorine (based on guidance I got here) to keep it from becoming a swamp. So this season I had to add it, to get the minimum required...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    Morning! I’ve spent the last day force feeding stabilizer into the pool. I tied 4 socks full of CYA in front of the returns and squeezed as often as I could. Yesterday, at 8:30 PM I had a CYA reading of 35. I took a sample from a location away from the socks and the cloud of acid. My other test...

    @mguzzy...ok, will do. One Robot Unicorn coming right up!! 🤖🦄 I wanted to be present for the opening for this exact reason. I wanted to know what, how much, in what order, etc. I am an annoying homeowner/client/etc like that. It’s mostly curiosity, and, I’m an avid DIY’er. There are things I...

    CYA is zero. Really zero. I attempted to SLAM. Did I ruin my liner

    One more question, then I need to sleep. Can I use a fine mesh bag, like one for washing sweaters, instead of a sock, since I need to dissolve so much stabilizer? I have a large one with very fine holes. Seriously, I also have about 4,000 unmatched socks but I’d be hard pressed to find one...

    And yes, I understand the pool store wants to make $. I take their advice with a grain of salt. The owner is the only one I prefer to talk to, bc, generally, she doesn’t try to sell me anything. Her employees sell hard though. She told me to add baking soda, when she had a bucket of “Alkalinity...

    Thanks for the reassurance. Really. My confidence went from “I think I am going to get a B on this test” to “I definitely failed and will be expelled.” I’m back to thinking I will maybe pass. Fingers crossed. Ive read, and re-read, and re-re-read that SLAM article and also the ABC’s one too. I...

    Hi! I was just poking around the site and I stumbled on This Now I’m going to have nightmares I ruined my brand new liner. 😬 I hired a local pool company to open the pool because it’s my first season with the pool actually up and running. The saga of my pool’s rehabilitation can be found if...

    A sad day at our house-bye bye pool :(

    Anyone here with developer skills? We will need a “Kimkats tracker app” so we can get updates on where Kim is in her travels, sort of like the Santa apps that spring up at Christmas time.

    Pool in limbo-new liner, water delivered, then....nothing

    Well I think I’ve reached the end of my journey with this pool restoration/renovation for the season...or just about. Our cover will be in next week. It’s been winterized, and now that the patio is done I’ll clean it out one more time so it’s not ultra swampy in the spring. The concrete...

    Let me also offer my full support of a plan to cool yourself off in other people’s pools instead of buying your own. Feel free to come check out our finally-finished-renovated pool. I like many others owe you that at least! I can’t guarantee I won’t steal your keys and take your ‘Vette for a...

    Pool in limbo-new liner, water delivered, then....nothing

    Sure thing. I took some fresh ones earlier today. The clusters of pipes are about 6-8 ft away from the edge of the pool. One is almost directly behind where the diving board was and the other behind where I believe a slide was located. The pair with black caps say “UL listed” on them and the...
