    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Merged threads - TFP Mod I have been trying to clear the dead algae from my pool for almost three weeks now. This is the second year I have had trouble with a cloudy pool. I never got it clear last summer. I’ve been slamming daily. Chemicals are spot on. I have gone though nearly my entire...

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    My pool is very blue. I have been trying to follow the SLAM process as closely as possible. I think I have a lot of dead algae to filter out.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    Merged threads. So I bought my pool with the house. It’s 24k gallon inground. We have a Hayward Superpump 1HP. Skimmer and bottom drain lines are 2”. 1 1/2” jet lines. Filter holds 150# of sand. I think I need a bigger filter correct? I am having a lot of trouble clearing it after opening this...

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    I’ll continue to shock. Thank you. I do think it’s improving, but soooo slowly. I may change out to a DE filter next year.

    Pool is still cloudy after 9 days of continuous shocking and filtering

    This mornings test: FC 12 CC 0 PH 7.2 TA 80 CA 40 CYA 35 I know I need to add calcium… but that shouldn’t effect clarity should it?

    Help! I need new parts for my Hayward super pump

    I have an older Hayward Super Pump. I’m having trouble finding parts with the correct model number. Any suggestions? I need to replace the ceramic shaft seal, housing gasket, and diffuser gasket. Also, any idea how old this pump is? We bought the house with the pool.

    Pump won’t prime

    One of the o-rings I replaced was off just a smidge. Corrected and added a ton of lubricant. Also the outlet was fine, had to replace the cord and plug to the pump. All up and running now. 🙌

    Pump won’t prime

    No difference between skimmer and bottom drain. Water is a little on the high side today but yesterday (when we tried opening) it was perfect. Connections are definitely correct, I have everything marked. Haven’t ruled out blockage and haven’t checked impeller. I did just find another o-ring...

I knew we had to change the sand this year so we did that. Filled the pool up, hooked up pump, filter, and piping. Filled the pump basket with the...

    Very cloudy pool. Filter problems. Dead algae on bottom of pool

    Updated picture today. Still hazy. This is in the shallow end. The deep end is more difficult to see (8ft). Test results this morning: FC 12 CC .5 pH 7.0 TA 100 CYA 50 I added some baking soda to increase the pH and hopefully improve my clarity. Any suggestions?

    I'm trying my best to keep it at shock, but I was not home for a couple days so it dropped a little. Been trying to keep it around 20ppm.

    Dolphin nautilus

    I am currently shocking my pool at around 20ppm. Trying to clear a bad algae bloom. Anyway.. Can I use my dolphin nautilus while shocking the pool? The instructions say nothing over 4ppm. But that seems crazy!
