    How much CYA to add?

    I’ve looked in pool math and the forum but can’t figure out what I should do. I just added about 300 gallons of water to my pool. My CYA was at 30 before I added the water, now it is obviously less but my test kit only goes as low as 30. How much CYA should I add to get it back up? I am nervous...

    Intex eyeball adapter

    I upgraded my pump, and the new eyeball for the return is too big to fit through the original hole in my pool. Does anyone know if Intex makes an adapter for this?

    Can this be fixed?

    I just opened my pool last week. It’s been really rainy lately, and my yard tends to run really wet at baseline. So I didn’t think anything of it when the side of the pool near the pump has become a muddy mess. Well, this morning I happened to notice a little trickle coming from underneath my...

    Newbie about to start first SLAM

    Hi all, I'm hoping I can get some advice as I begin my first SLAM. By way of background, I bought my pool last summer. I did not winterize it properly, and when I uncovered it this spring, I found a nice green swamp. Last Friday, the guy at the pool store sent me home with a bag of "shock...
