    Circupool Smart Flow 1.5 Variable Speed Pump

    Hello, I just upgraded and installed this pump. It seems fantastic and I can't believe how quiet it is and according to the Watt meter it is only using 67 Watts per hour. My question is: Is there any problem with just running the pump on the lowest setting for 24 hours a day. It should turn...

    Circupool RJ-60 Plus Installation Video

    Yes, I was running out of pipe before the corner, but there was plenty of glue surface. I did not realize that there was a difference between grounding and bonding. I have considered the terms the same, a direct conductive low resistance path to earth. What is the difference?

    PH Plus made water cloudy

    Thank you for the link. I do believe my problem is scale. I would describe it as clearish white flakes on the top of the pool water (I didn't know what it was). I checked the CH again and got 160ppm, so it is at a good range. I'm not sure the best way to handle this. I read I could lower...

    I added five 3" pucks to increase CYA and I didn't want my PH to go any lower.

    PH Plus made water cloudy

    FC 8 PH 7.3 (moving up to 7.7) Hello, This morning my pool looked great. I checked the levels and wanted to bring up the ph a little bit. I bought some bulk ph+ and added about 40oz. and it made my pool cloudy. I seem to remember this happening as well last season too. I am wondering if the...

    Calculating output from SWG

    Hello, I am trying to figure out how much FC my SWG generates in a 12 hour shift. I used pool math and I typed in 1.28 Lbs of "chlorine gas" and I am wondering if that calculation is showing me how much FC I get in 24hrs? I'm getting about 6.2 FC for a 24,000K pool on a 24hr. shift? Is this...

    Need a UV proof cover to go under my winter safety cover.

    Hi guys sorry about the delay I forgot that I posted this thread. I close about Oct. 15th and Open April 15th in PA (once water temp is getting 65ish). I had a 100% solid cover for the past 12 years and I liked it but it was really heavy to lug around. I bought a mesh safety cover that is...

    Need a UV proof cover to go under my winter safety cover.

    Hello, I'm looking for a Winter UV cover that goes under a Winter Safety cover. My winter cover is about 95% UV resistant. I remember reading on here that they make a cover that is like a solar cover that blocks sunlight to prevent algae growth in the offseason. I don't know what the product...

    Safety cover straps and anchors not lining up.

    I have a really nice solid cover from Yard Guard. It needs to be replaced with a custom matching one $1500. I'm thinking of buying a cheaper cover and putting 1/4 cable surrounding the the pool cover, so I don't have to drill new anchors all over my deck. Has anyone done this? I'm about 85...

    PVC Socket Saver Really Work?

    I own that tool and it works very well. You will notice a looser fit than brand new, but with glue it seals up good as new. If you can remove the old fitting with heat you should have an even better fit.

    Take water out of pool and bypass the filter?

    Okay thanks for the definitive answer. I ended up siphoning with the hose because I wanted to lower the level ASAP, the only tip I have is if you use the return jet to fill the hose it makes starting the siphon process easy. But next time, now I know all have to do is use waste and pump it...

    Take water out of pool and bypass the filter?

    Thanks for the diagram it looks like on the sand filter it goes directly through to the exit pipe and does not take any water from the top of the filter, but is anyone sure???? In the meantime I have been siphoning water at a rate of about 3/4 of inch every 3 hours.

    Take water out of pool and bypass the filter?

    Hi, I just added CYA though socks in my filter basket about 5 days ago. It rained and I want to pump down the pool about 3". Is there a way to bypass the filter and pump out water. I think a lot of my CYA is in the filter now and I want to keep it in there and make sure it does not get...

    low pump run time

    JB, What is your pump run time for your SWG? I only have 3K more gallons of water than you. I see your cell produces about 1.40 lbs of CL a day, and my unit does 1.28 lbs. a day (running 24 hrs.) I'm in the process of putting in a 1hp pump motor and getting rid of my tired 2HP. Thanks

    okay thanks for clearing that up James. I appreciate your expert advice. I was looking at the parts diagram Hayward | TriStar Full Rated Pump | Replacement Parts Diagram and just thought I better check on it. Just wondering how does the size of the impeller impact the flow rate and the...

    Hayward Tristar Motor Replacement

    Thanks again James! I ordered all the parts, hopefully the install goes smooth. So the bottom line if the new pump runs twice as long and I still going to be saving money?
