    Intelliflo

    Just got my new pump. Pentair intelliflo vs 3hp. I'm wondering what the optimal RPM setting is. I had it installed because if I installed it, it voids the warranty. the installer set it to 2000rpm and said I don't ever need to change it. seems kind of odd for a vs pump to never change the speed...

    Rain overfilling pool

    what is classified as neutral? my pH was 8. I was going to add muratic but figured I'd wait since I knew the rain was coming. my alkalinity has been high (140ish) so maybe after this rain they will both be good? (or at least better)

    Rain overfilling pool

    is rain generally high pH or alkalinity? I assume I'll need to add muratic acid as well. I'll definitely test to confirm

    Rain overfilling pool

    I'm new to pool ownership and this is my first rain. I've been told to keep the water level in the middle of the skimmer. with the recent rain it's starting to fill up. When should I be concerned and start pumping water out? what will happen if I just leave it alone?

    0.5 ppm iron

    I recently got my test kit but I still like to go to Leslies occasionally to make see if my numbers match up. they do for the most part. Went I went today they said I have 0.5 ppm iron in my pool. I'm not entirely sure I believe it's accurate. Should I get my own iron test? is 0.5 something to...

    electrical redo

    my sub panel is running from 2 30amp circuits off my main. the electrical is all shoddy so idk how it's wired until I take it all apart. I was told the heater hasn't worked in 10 years so that thing is going away

    electrical redo

    I'm gonna replace everything. I plan on getting solar heating. larger filter and new pump. I don't care about full automation. Im not thinking of going SWCG at this time.. do you have sub panel recommendations? I started digging up the conduit so I can replace with CPVC

    electrical redo

    this is my current state of electrical. I just bought the house and I'm a new pool owner. I'm a plumber by trade but electrical isn't my strong suit. My neighbor is an electrician and said if I buy all the stuff he'll help me wire it. So my question is: What is a good affordable sub panel to put...

    New Pool - Need help balancing!

    I'm new here so I wouldn't rely on my advice. I'm more commenting to get other people's take if this actually is good advice. But I'm thinking it might be a good idea to get chlor bright from leslies pool supplies (or something equivalent from another distributor) since it has chlorine and...

    Solar?

    I was thinking of getting solar for my pool since I live in California, I've read it's the best option. I'm curious how much solar I would actually need, and what pump would work best. originally I was going to get 1.65hp vs since my pool is on the smaller side but since I want the solar I've...

    so if I see a momentary color change, is that what my number is? or the color needs to stay for it to be the final number?

    Just got my TF100

    I'll test my tap later today. I am concerned about that cya/fc chart. it says 8ppm minimum but I have a 3yo that loves to swim. how safe will 10ppm be for her being so young?
