    Leaking Anti-Freeze after Closing

    Thank you. I have a cover I put over the entire heat pump before the snow arrives. They always “plug” that pvc pipe at the bottom with the same technique you see in the pic (bag and tape). Just not sure because I’ve never seen bright pink antifreeze behind that bag before.

    Leaking Anti-Freeze after Closing

    Thank you. They always put a little bag over that but I’ve never seen the antifreeze in there before. Appreciate the reassurance about the toxicity.

    Leaking Anti-Freeze after Closing

    So my pool company just left. There is antifreeze leaking from a pipe that I’ve never seen have antifreeze in it after closing. I am concerned because I have dogs. Should there be antifreeze in this pipe that comes out of the bottom of my heater? Pic attached. Thanks!

    Cracked Cartridge Filter x2

    Ok, thank you. I typically do lift them about an inch off the ground spin them towards the sun and let them drop to the deck when trying to dry them. Maybe I’ve damaged them from doing that. Appreciate the response.

    Cracked Cartridge Filter x2

    Hi. I’m not sure. I need to replace my pressure valve. But for 4 years I’ve never waited for the gauge to tell me when to clean the cartridges. I clean them frequently so I don’t think they cracked due to a Buildup of organics/pressure. I didn’t notice the crack until they were soaking. I’m just...

    Cracked Cartridge Filter x2

    Hello. I have (3) sets of cartridge filters that I rotate through. Pool is only open May-Sept. This is my 5th summer with the pool. Earlier this season I noticed one of my original Hayward filters cracked and thought it was just due to age. However, I am currently soaking a different set in...

    Stenner Pump—How to adjust daily dosage to meet target FC?

    Hello. Next summer I’d really like to get a stenner pump, tank and timer to avoid adding (manually) liquid chlorine each night. But each night when I test the ounces needed varies based on my FC reading (to hit my target range). Am I missing something? Is there a device that reads your chlorine...

    Does it offer a different technique for reading CYA? I only have one test kit Taylor k-2006

    Pool Store Experiment Water Samples

    I have a very difficult time reading my CYA due to my poor vision. I thought I would take (2) water samples to (2) different places and take an average of the (2). Well, once the (2) varied so greatly, I stopped home and refilled the bottles and went to (2) additional pool stores. The picture...

    The timing of FC minimum vs Target

    Thank you for your explanation. I’m trying to figure out my FC loss throughout the day to determine a number I should aim for at night. Appreciate the e feedback!

    The timing of FC minimum vs Target

    Sorry, I didn’t realize I needed to post full results. I attached a screenshot. Just trying to figure out if people add chlorine throughout the day or shoot high at night and let it fall the next day.

    The timing of FC minimum vs Target

    Assuming I understand that CYA levels determine your FC levels and that chlorine demand is influenced by sun, bather load, contaminants etc ….. If my minimum FC is 4 and my target is 6-8. So I use pool math in the evening to try to reach the 8? Then hope I don’t drop to 4 or lower during the...

    URGENT Help needed! Please! Leak?!

    OMG…I sure hope it’s just a one time mistake on my part that will never happen again! I’m adding water now so we will see how it goes once it’s back to its normal level. Thinking of putting the pump in my baby pool and trying it to see if it will continue to siphon once unplugged. Thanks for...

    URGENT Help needed! Please! Leak?!

    Thank you for e quick reply. My initial thought was maybe the gasket around the light. The loss seems significant in a short period of time. So here is a question…and I will feel very stupid if this is the cause but also very relieved…. I ran the submersible utility pump For only about 40...

    URGENT Help needed! Please! Leak?!

    Hello. So I should be celebrating my first successful attempt at a SLAM. However, my water level is dropping rapidly. In my area we had very heavy storms last night (during my SLAM). Prior to going to bed I pumped out enough water that there was a small window at the top of my skimmer to allow...
