    Cloudy pool issue

    Thank you!! I believe it. They had her buy this but in a 5lb bag: https://pinchapenny.com/shop/suncoast-stabilizer-conditioner-1-lb-pour-and-go.html And this: Suncoast Total Alkalinity Increaser I will get her to try that. We will order her test kit and she agreed to learn to use it so that...

    Cloudy pool issue

    Hello folks! I’m at my moms house and her pool became cloudy after a trip and some advice from a pool store. I didn’t bring my test kit so we are relying on pinch a penny test results. I don’t live close enough to go home and get it. Next trip I’ll bring one and teach her to use it. But for now...

    I found a ring-necked snake in there and a ton of frogs but that is about it. We bought a frog log and I haven't had to rescue or remove any more frogs in the last few months. There was a 5.5' alligator in the pond but a neighbor reported it and they removed it. :(

    how accurate is the depth of your pool?

    Our PB wanted $1000 to go from 6' to 7' and our pool ended up closer to 6.6' and we did NOT pay for an upgrade. I'm 6' and when I stand at the bottom of the pool there is a hold hand above me before I break the water.

    What is the best underwater camera?

    @PoolGate thats funny. I’m sure you’ll hear crickets from them. SetSailSoon recommended seaLife and I really like the idea of it. Now I just have to justify the $300 in my head for a case. Any other recommendations for an underwater cam?

    What is the best underwater camera?

    Thanks everyone! I really like the idea of the GoPro snorkel mount. The hero 7 black is nicely priced at less than $200. I might go that route. I never heard of SeaLife brand. I’ll check it out.

    What is the best underwater camera?

    Hey folks! I’m curious what about underwater cameras. I’m not brave enough to use my phone and research is mixed. Do we just buy a GoPro or some cheaper version? What do you all use? I’m not attempting to be a professional photographer, just take some fun pics and videos of the kids in the pool.

    That is a good idea, but I doubt the HOA would approve it since they are working to keep all houses with a very similar aesthetic. I really like that idea though. I think all houses in this neighborhood have the dark window frames. I think they have a great chance to win tonight. If they come...

    We finally had sod installed, well most of it. We also ordered rocks and trees. The front yard was most important to keep the HOA at bay and if it ever stops raining here he will deliver and install the last 3/4 pallet for the back yard. The trees and rocks are about 2 weeks out so it's...

    New Pool Build in Orlando, FL

    We are happy with the 3' depth. We have a 4yr old and it's perfect depth for him and we can still swim laps just fine. The steps are a 6x8' cutout and do not have enough light so we wish would have thought of that. Oh well. Next pool we will make that change. lol

    I stained my pool, help please!

    Thanks for the input. I am hoping it fades too. It’s faded a bit and I rubbed a chlorine tablet on it so maybe that helped. Who knows. It’s a painful lesson learned on my part. Only use white socks moving forward.

    New Pool Build in Orlando, FL

    Erik, our regrets are not with the filter or anything like that but with lack of lights. I wish I could go back and add some lighting on the steps. I also wish I went a little bigger/deeper. I know you live about 45 min from us but you are welcome to come by and check out the quality of work of...

    I stained my pool, help please!

    Hi James, yes, I’m 100% sure it’s ascorbic acid. The stain is a result of the dye from the stocking. I let it sit there too long. The rust spot is gone and now I have a stain. It’s lifting up slowly. I took a chlorine tablet to it last night and that helped a little bit. I read somewhere that...

    I stained my pool, help please!

    Thanks onBalance. It’s a pebble finish so can I still sand it?

    I stained my pool, help please!

    So we had a three small rust spot in the pool, each smaller than an eraser. So I grabbed a nylon sock and put AA in it and placed it on the stain. When I removed it I now have a large black stain which is the dye from the stocking. Can I fix it and how?

    First couple test results are in. The first day I tested it here are the results from 5/6/2021 FC - 0.0 pH - 8.2 TA - 80 CH - 200 I didn't measure CYA. I didn't measure salt because there was none in the pool at this time. 5/20/2021 FC - 0.5 pH - 7.8 TA - 120 CH - 200 CYA - 30 (could still see...
