    It may be time to replace my pumps...

    I fear I will have to replace my pumps this year. They are old, single speed Hayward 3HP Super Pump II’s. My pool is ~52k gallons (so in theory I need at least 108gpm) and I have 2” pipes (so in theory I need at most 143gpm). My pool has 1300-1400 feet of PVC (I am estimating based on14...

    SLAM questions

    Guys I have been using the troublefreepool method for ~5 years with pretty good results. One problem I have run into was not being able to find enough bleach (or having to use scented, no splash bleach) when I SLAM due to the combination of a 55,000 gallon pool and not many stores nearby. I...

    Could my FA reagents gone bad?

    It was a week ago and it was 3.5. I have never been over 4. Could it be that high? Would I notice when I swam in it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Odd Occurence

    I changed the de grids on it as well. So I went from one clean but beaten up de filter to two clean filters with new grids. Perplexing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Water looks awesome, do I need to do anything?

    My water looks awesome but my TA is still too high. I read that we aren't supposed to do anything if TA is high but it isn't causing other problems. Now my PH has gone too high as well... 44k gallon plaster swg pool FC 4.6 CC 0.0 Ph 8.1 TA 95 Hardness 320 CYA 60 Should I lower the Ph to 7...

    Water just went from crystal clear to milky

    Ok. FC 1.5 CC 0 pH 7.2 TA 110 CH 275 CYA 45 Salt 3000 I will definitely add 154 oz of 8.5% bleach. Should I add the soda ash to increase the pH or will the high TA drive it up on its own? I am inclined to wait until Saturday to add more stabilizer and give the stabilizer I added last week...

    Water just went from crystal clear to milky

    I am also beginning to think that the milky water may be the result of DE flowing into the pool.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My readings are FC 3.4 CC 0 pH 7.6 TA 120 CH 140 CYA 0 I added bleach, soda ash and some Stabilizer Two questions: 1) did I screw up my pool by adding soda ash and calcium chloride at the same time? Can I recover from this? 2) I have been adding some stabilizer gradually (some in socks and...
