    Are these algae or stains?

    Stains seem to change color with the vitamin. Slowly. Rubbing the vitamin doesn’t erase it, rather it’s a slow fade if I crush one on top of it (or the sock). What would be the couse of action, leave the sock on top of it until gone? (There a many little spots) Can this end up in change of...

    Are these algae or stains?

    We recently (about a month or so) remove a wall of 80 feet of hedges (ficus) near the affected area. Also, they’ve been installing a new fence. Fertilize before that I cant be sure as the lawn guy is kind of a free spirit (does the job, but on his time/way/no information).

    Filter "exploited"

    Well, no cartridge in stock around my area. Ended up ordering online. Any concern with running the pump thru the filter without a cartridge until Thursday (will it damage my equipment or piping)? I want to have the water moving to start mixing all the baking soda, acid and cl I'm going to pour.

    Filter "exploited"

    Unfortunately I think you are 100% right. Exactly how I feel; exactly what I think it’s happening. Sad that it’s like that. I was already on the verge; just waiting for the clorine to stop false reading to go back to normal business....but then today the filter cartrige exploited/imploded.

    Filter "exploited"

    Oh, forgot to mention, I was alto totally skeptical about it. When they came to “inspect” the show me: took me to one of the areas, he applied the powder; inmediately started to react and the whitish came off. Maybe a lucky spot. But after seeying that I had to give it a try...

    Filter "exploited"

    This filter has the the top opening as the inlet. Bottom opening is to pool. Outlet of pump correctly piped to filter upper opening. I had a small 90sq hayward filter. Same whisperflow. While on the renovation job I replaced the filter by this 200sq. Same pump was used. I never had an issue...

    Filter "exploited"

    I t That’s a whole different story. I complained, threy came to “inspect”. This is what they concluded needed to be done. They are not taking the blame. Only thing left is to lawyer up and to be honest for a 3k$ resurface job I’m not sure it’s worth it. They know that also, that’s why this...

    Don't even know where to start here. Well, see the pictures. Some background story: - Both the filter encasing and the cartridge not more than 3 months of usage. - Pool recently resurfaced (November 2018) - Big areas of decoloration after the 30-day curing process (proper chemistry kept and...

    Filter too small?

    Looking at the official manual for the 150sfp it's actually rated for 120GPM, almost the same as the 3030. Inyopools mistakenly lists the 150sqf as 150GPM (and 200GPM for the 200sqf!).

    Filter too small?

    Looking at the specs on these two http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02201212000434.htm and http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02200011078399.htm seems like the one I sent earlier (150sqf) is rated for 150GPM while 3030 (324 sqf) is 122 GPM. I should be OK flow-wise with the 150spf? I'm thinking...

    Filter too small?

    Im redoing my piping while pool company is working on new deck, waterline tile and new plaster. To show off I showed the main guy my work so far and he commented that my current filter might be too small for my pool. He's not trying to up-sell me because he actually said that he cant compete...

    Any ideas what this pipe might be for?

    Connecting the pipe to a valve and feed it back to the main plumbing to run the cleaner out of it, that 1" diameter is it going to be an issue?

    Any ideas what this pipe might be for?

    I'm redoing my equipment plumbing and I'm wandering what the stand alone pipe at the left might be for. It's been disconnected - and uncapped -since I got the house. The equipment piping - coming from the pool also - is 1.5" but the one in question is 1". Ideas? Maybe #1: There is a closed...

    Circupool RJ+ conduit?

    Is there a way to run conduit from the control panel to the timer housing? Pictures I've seen usually show the wire without it. I'm having trouble understanding how to get the power cord into the timer housing "safely". I guess I will need something like this...
