    Simple solar heater?

    Trying to find the simplest way to do a diy solar heater. What if I just left this in the plastic wrap on my trex deck and use a submersible pump? Would it work? T63-500 - 1/2 in. Blank Distribution Tubing for Drip Irrigation - 500 ft.

    What size sand filter?

    CYA problems

    Had my water tested at Leslie’s, CYA was 0. So added half of what they recommended. Went back today to retest water, according to them my CYA was 120! I got home and tested with 3 different brands of test kits. It measured 40 with each strip, so I’m more inclined to believe my strips. BTW the...
