    DE filter keeps rising in pressure

    Well I finally fixed this problem. Took a trash can and filled it with water and threw in some automatic dish washer tabs, took out all the grids and rinsed the DE off of them, then let them soak overnight in the trash can.

    Having a real hard time with my new pool

    Thanks so much Maddie, I actually put in two bottles of Bleach which at an effective chlorine of 7.13 which totaled 160oz. So I maybe have overdone it a bit? So until I get my test kit in the mail, should I put this amount in every day??

    Having a real hard time with my new pool

    thanks for that suggestion i'll get some acid to lower it tomorrow. I just need a detailed explanation on what i'm doing with this app and bleach. Is this amount the app determined a daily amount i add every day? or is this the total to bring it up to the target?

    Having a real hard time with my new pool

    OK is this under the Bleach Calculator? Using the calculator it came up with a 17,350 gallon pool. So how much bleach per day is 5ppm? I can't find that screen in the app.

    Having a real hard time with my new pool

    Awesome thanks so much! I had a feeling I was wasting my time and money at the pool store. I ordered the kit with the XL and smart stir options. So I need to add plain old bleach 5PPM per day? I'm guessing the poolmath app will help me with what that is?
