    Can't import backup or logs on Pool Math

    I noticed that I'm unable to import anything on Pool Math and the app just crashes (on Android). But, thankfully, restoring my subscription seems to have brought everything over anyway. Is this expected? I notice there is no import option on my computer. Side note: After moving to a new phone...

    No fill water at all. And yeah I did the rest. Getting a smart stir today so we'll see...

    Frustrating slamming process!

    So I'll continue in this thread (unless someone wants me to start a new one). Chlorine seems to have stabilized now with the addition of more CYA so that's a good thing. But, that pH/TA. I put 32oz of muriatic in the other day. And my TA went UP! pH was at 8 (ish), but now it is at 7.8. My...

    Frustrating slamming process!

    Not so old it should be giving me that kind of issue. I'm pretty sure it's the variability of the drop sizes, tbh, which I'm not quite sure how to address. I do have new reagents on order as well as a smart stir though. As far as update in general...for the 2nd straight night, I essentially had...

    Frustrating slamming process!

    OK...so now I'm SUPER frustrated... Let me start by saying I have been using the tftests for a lot of years, rather successfully, so, as the expression goes, this isn't my first rodeo. But... Last night I turn off the chlorinator and run the pump for a while after the sun has gone to where...

    Is there a more recent PC version of ScreenLogic Connect than 5.2?

    Yep. That's what I was talking about. I changed it a long time ago but don't remember which way and there's no info on it anywhere, just that it adjusts how fast it runs.

    Is there a more recent PC version of ScreenLogic Connect than 5.2?

    I guess it is! I do remember finding that before now. I guess the only other thing I can really think of is the clock adjustment - not the time, but the one to speed it up or slow it down. But that's a minor thing anyway

    Is there a more recent PC version of ScreenLogic Connect than 5.2?

    Like pump power usage for one? Trying to remember because it's been a while since I looked through them for anything. One of those things you don't need to use often but when you do, you wish you had it.

    Is there a more recent PC version of ScreenLogic Connect than 5.2?

    I just wish you could get to some of the diagnostics from it that you can at the easy touch panel. Intellicenter would be a) an expensive upgrade and b) give me about 9 million things I don't need.

    Is there a more recent PC version of ScreenLogic Connect than 5.2?

    I have 5.2 build 738.0 Rel. It gets the job done but it's ancient. No longer pulls the weather in (not that I use it, but it's annoying). And of course there is almost no troubleshooting info in it. Like I said...it gets the job done but just curious...

    Frustrating slamming process!

    OK - let me rephrase that then...I didn't *remember*! But I HAVE read everything I can here. There's just SO much awesome info!! Particularly from Chem Geek...I'm a fellow geek, just not a chem one!;)

    2023 Annual Donation Campaign

    Well I was already a lifetime supporter and bronze supporter, so I decided to jump right over silver and go for gold. I'm sure I've save well over that over the years with all the help I get here. I tell everyone I know about it...

    Frustrating slamming process!

    I use tf test kits. Always have. :) Didn't realize about the harshness. This I ALSO did not know! I swear I've read through everything on this board at least once!!

    Frustrating slamming process!

    I forgot to mention my alkalinity is high too which also keeps pulling my ph up which of course lowers the effectiveness of the chlorine. Bringing TA down is a slow process too. :( I also like to run my dolphin here and there too (which would help with the scrubbing part) but I also don't want...

    Frustrating slamming process!

    I had to replace all the water because of the liner replacement. So I raised it to 30. I haven't taken it higher. Oh and btw, my water has only dipped from crystal clear for about one day this year. Which is also part of the overall frustration :)

    Frustrating slamming process!

    I replaced my liner this year and I've been chasing getting it clean all year. I've entertained a fair amount and don't like to have massive chlorine when doing so which has put a damper in getting ahead of this. I know I have something and it won't die! But here's where I am... My CYA is only...

    Weird pH problem!

    Have hardly put any new water in for a while, just rain. 5 days ago I put in 32 oz of 31.45 muriatic and it went from 8 to 7.4. That dropped TA from 110 to 90, which is roughly where it typically sits from year to year anyway. Then a little over 2 days ago, it had already risen back to 7.8 so I...

    Weird pH problem!

    I cannot keep my pH down at all. I have twice put in acid and lowered it to about 7.2 or 7.4 and it just keeps rising. Initially I had an air intake leak from my pump drain plug that I thought was driving this, but it's still happening after fixing that. It went from 7.4 to 7.8 in a matter of...

    Do actuators usually wear out?

    Yeah, that will be the next step. This isn't a major priority for me and it's muggy as Crud today so I'd rather be in the pool than be sitting beside it! I'll do the surgery sometime this week as it cools down.

    Do actuators usually wear out?

    So the issue is that the actuator does not consistently turn the handle to the same location. Its always close but not to the exact stop. This is a pentair cva-24, for which I found precious little information in general, just an install guide. The jandy says to lubricate the handle stem but...

    A lot of air in the filter, not in the pump

    @ajw22 Well hot-diggity-Dang! Looks like it was the drain plug under the pump basket! I took it off and there was a fair amount of old thread seal tape on it. Cleaned it off and put new thread seal tape on and out it it back in and voila! Out of curiosity, what would be the symptoms if the...

    Do actuators usually wear out?

    I set the actuator to only turn part way since I don't want to divert all the water to the deck jets. I haven't actually checked it to see if it turns to the exact same spot everytime. So there are 2 scenarios I guess: 1) The actuator turns the valve to the same location each time but the...

    Do actuators usually wear out?

    I have some deck jets that are split from my returns with an actuator. I use my automation to turn them on every day during pool season for a few minutes, just to make sure the water doesn't get stagnant, etc when they're not in use. We don't actually use them a lot...seemed like a good idea at...

    A lot of air in the filter, not in the pump

    OK thanks. That all mostly makes sense to me. Definitely not my skimmer or weir door - I know what that looks like. The odd thing about it to me is the fact that no air is in the pump basket at all. That article really doesn't cover my situation well. I'll check the drain basket plug next. That...

    A lot of air in the filter, not in the pump

    I think this is the right place for this...(please move if not) Anyway, I don't usually pull a lot of air in my system. But this year, I am getting quite a bit. The thing is that none of it is in the pump, where I would see it in the past with various issues. The water stays pinned to the top...

    SWG had power, then none

    Side note - I had complained at times in the past because my system reading and manual reading of salt levels were so divergent. Reading from aquachek strip: 3320; reading from IC40: 3350. I'm pretty happy with that. :)

    SWG had power, then none

    New unit installed, wired 240 on the same side of the relay as the pump (and heater). Up and running, although I misjudged my salt level and it's a shade low. Thanks for the help as always!

    Dolphin Plus App- What happened to Pick Me Up function???

    Thanks! I finally figured that out a few hours ago (been in the pool!). :) Came in to post that I figured it out and here it is! LOL
