    How to convert during shortage?

    Changed out the sand in the filter this weekend, I am officially done with my conversion. Chlorine is holding overnight with no CC's so next step is to install the SWG,

    Can I just wire my pump to plug into a regular outlet?

    This particular one is only 15 amp, I want to source a 20 amp before I hook up the SWG.

    Can I just wire my pump to plug into a regular outlet?

    My wiring is very similar to yours but mine has a GFCI breaker in the panel, my pump is plugged into an outlet at the pool pad. I just replaced the outdoor box with a new double gang set up, wired a switch in one gang that feeds a WiFi outlet in the other so I can manually kill power to the...

    Can I replace my 1 hp Super Pump VS motor with a .85 ELV08c?

    I’m curious to see your results when you change over. Having just received my electric bill after running my 1hp Super Pump 24/7 for a month I’m ready to make the change to a VS motor as well.

    Need to wire in SWG but want to remove in the winter

    I have a new Edge 40 SWG to install but the wiring to my current pump is extremely basic just a single outlet in a weather box with a switch that my pump plugs into. Currently the pump is running 24/7, I turn the switch on or off as I need to backflush but running the pump all the time isn't...

    How to convert during shortage?

    So does it look like white mold or stains to you @Previously-Matt_baqua_Oh ?

    How to convert during shortage?

    I just went out & took some pictures of the stains I’m seeing. Maybe they were there before I started converting but they used to make the water cloudy when I scrubbed them & now they don’t move or dissipate?

    How to convert during shortage?

    I’ve been running the pool on LC for the past few weeks due to work. The filter is on 24/7 & the robot runs once a day. I’m still seeing some white slime in the vac bag & on the pool floor so I don’t know if the conversion is complete yet? Now when I brush the stains there’s very little...

    Need to wire in SWG but want to remove in the winter

    I forgot to add that I also have a smart WiFi outlet that I can use instead of a timer & thought about setting a schedule with the smart outlet instead of a timer.

    Need to wire in SWG but want to remove in the winter

    I’m getting ready to finally install my Edge 40 SWG but have to figure out how to wire it so that I can remove it in the winter. My pool pad wiring is extremely basic, just one outlet with a switch over the top of it to turn the pump on or off in an outdoor plug enclosure, there is no timer...

    How to convert during shortage?

    I need to figure out a plan for memorial day weekend since we’ll be gone for the long weekend. I’m going to change my sand this weekend & add CYA since I’ve been holding FC overnight for the last few nights. Next week I’ll be gone for work but my wife will be adding LC as necessary to maintain...

    How to convert during shortage?

    Ocean State has been a total win for us, I didn’t even know that we had a store in town. I was just there yesterday to grab more LC & they had a fresh shipment in stock. I have 40 gallons in my stash at this point which should get me through the rest of the conversion & keep me going until I...

    How to convert during shortage?

    I can’t believe how good the water looks! Been running the robot every day for a few cycles every day & staying on top of FC. Last night was the first night that we didn’t loose any FC, I may not be out of the woods yet but I think I can see the light!

    How to convert during shortage?

    So I decided to just go for it on Saturday, started with 4 bags of shock (no cya) from the local pool store while I drove all over town sourcing liquid chlorine. The water turned a pretty shade of green with foam that I tried to skim off while running the filter, I didn’t see a mention of...

    VS or two speed pump with 115v?

    It shouldn’t be an issue running for 12 hours a day with the current pump, it was replaced less than 2 years ago along with the filter which is why I’d hate to get rid of it for a vs pump. I’m trying to get a good basic system up & running this year so I can then eventually add/upgrade as...

    VS or two speed pump with 115v?

    My estimate is about 20k gallons for the pool, I’ve been running the filter all day at this point as I had a lot of clean up to do to get the pool up & running, no idea what the previous owners did for run time. I’m also considering adding a mechanical timer & would hopefully run the pool/SWG...

    VS or two speed pump with 115v?

    I’m currently in the process of converting from Baquacil to chlorine so I can then install my Edge 40 SWG. My wiring is incredibly basic, a single 110 outlet with a switch to turn the current 1hp super pump on, there’s a single pole breaker in the main panel with no additional room to expand to...

    How to convert during shortage?

    So in haste I said the wall was caved in, it's not caved but there's a bulge that's been inspected as I mentioned above.

    How to convert during shortage?

    The local pool company inspected it & it looks like it's been that way for sometime so without digging they advised that we keep an eye on it, the joys of new home ownership. Moving forward though the goal is to get from Baquacil to chlorine & then to salt so I'll need to fight it without...

    How to convert during shortage?

    My original intent was to drain as much as possible but we have an extremely high water table here & one of the pool walls is caved in from a frost heave so I don't want to lower the level much below the skimmer so to prevent any possible issues.

    How to convert during shortage?

    We haven't added anything at this point, the previous owner's ran it as Baqua & didn't disclose any information on previous care.

    How to convert during shortage?

    Wow, I didn't even know that store existed in town, grabbed 4 cases of 12.5%. The pool is about 20k gallons, any estimate on how many bottles I'll need?

    How to convert during shortage?

    We bought a house with a Baquacil pool this year & now that it’s finally clear, it had two inches of rotted leaves on the bottom when we opened it up. With a chlorine shortage how do I move forward with the conversion? The pool store has granular chlorine available but no liquid locally. I’m...

    Can I use my brand new robot to clean my filthy pool?

    It's working but as mentioned above the basket is filling up quickly with brown goo from the rotting leaves. A quick rinse of the basket & it's good to go.

    Can I use my brand new robot to clean my filthy pool?

    We recently purchased this home with an inground pool & the previous owners didn't clean the pool before closing so there has been an inch of rotted leaves on the floor. I have been using a leaf rake to scoop the whole leaves & manually vacuuming but have a brand new Pentair Warrior SE sitting...

    New to us pool with a terrible surprise

    The magnet won’t stick anywhere but I think it’s because of the padding?
