    Chlorine Recommendation Exceeds Heater Recommendation

    I have been following TFP guidance, and use the Pool Math app for logging tests and making corrections (using liquid chlorine). All has been going well to this point, but I've run into an issue with the recommendation. CYA is at 50, and the Pool Math app recommends 4-8 FC, with a target of 6...

    DE Powder Blows Back Through Equalizer Line

    I've been battling my Hayward DE6020 for the last week. I'm new to my pool, and was noticing that the pressure never seemed to rise, so I backwashed and added DE powder... much of which ended up in the pool. After reading up on possible causes, I took everything apart to look at the grids. Once...
