    Hey everyone, the pool has been going great so far. Just converted to Salt on Tuesday. I was at 35 on the CYA I added 1lb and it is now at 50 3days later. I will add another 1 bag and that should make it 65. Current levels - FC 1 (Salt cell was at 20% only I just bumped it up to 60%) and added...

    I was told by the pool store certain PH levels hurt the Heater. Had a zinc anode installed yesterday too, they were out of stock when they installed the IC60 SWG. I see bubbles coming out of my returns now. They are larger than the ammonia bubbles. Not sure if it air that was trapped when they...

    Still no email reply. Yesterday the bot had an update that took over 24 hours to install, kept saying upgrading firmware. After the 24 hours I hit the power button and it reset and was ready to go. Here is the history showing the crazy 900+hours before I even owned it.

    We finally did it, last night at midnight it was 11.0 and this morning at 8am it was 10.0!!! Didn't think it was going to hold, we had some rain last night and there were leaves in the pool. Going to test after lunch for CC. If that passes, what are my next steps? Think TA and PH test and throw...

    It is completing its cycles now regularly, but it still leaves the pool not fully cleaned. I manually controlled the bot and picked up the sediment(took about 45 mins). It took a while because the bot shutting down on its own and getting error messages. I screen grabbed one to show. Yes the blue...

    Last night I tested at 9pm it was 12.5 then my wife checked it at 8am it was 8.0, then I just checked it at 12:30 it is at 6.5. So it looks like it is still burning the LC. Do I need to do a more thorough scrub of the pool? I used the active 60 bot 3 times again yesterday and I vacuumed that...

    Water is crystal clear(Check out my pictures). I stayed up late and didn't get to check it until I woke up at 11am. I will keep up the FC to 12 today and check at night and get my wife to test before sunrise as I am a night owl. All the CYA is dissolved now too. I have some sand/fine particles...

    Used your email yesterday morning and still no response. I have been running it multiple times each day and it will complete the 2hr cleaning now, but it just keeps missing the same spots. I am very discouraged with this. $1400 for something to work sub par.

    Update for today. Used 2 socks in 1 skimmer and used an old shirt and covered the other skimmer and filled that up with the other half. The socks I squeezed throughout today and they are done. The shirt is going slower but still working, harder to squeeze that around. Waited to start slamming...

    Got my new Active 60/M600 from Marina's and started using it and 1st and 2nd time it errored out and didn't finish either cycle, the error says something that it thought it was out of water. Third try it finally worked but didn't do a good job at all, left sediment along the corners of the...

    Took me a few stores but finally found some stabilizer. Going off pool math shows I need about 8 lbs. I was going to use the sock method and put it in my skimmer with the sock. Well that much wont fit in my socks. I did a quick search and some people on these forums mention using a 5 gallon...

    Sorry I was unclear, I meant when do I test and adjust the total alkalinity? Also for the CYA I should use the sock in the skimmer, do I wait till that is full dissolved to move on to the PH adjustment and SLAMM. Thank you again!

    Next step get the Cya to 30, then after reading the SLAMM I need to get my PH 7.2-7.5. Once that is squared away, I SLAMM FC to 12 Checking hourly for the 1st day. SLAMM is over when I hit CC .5 or lower, Pass OCLT, and Water is clear. When do I do anything with the TA?
