    Can't keep chlorine in pool (all chemicals balanced)

    Yes, I drain when it's a bit cooler and use a sump pump from Home Depot. I'll probably tackle this next weekend and start looking for pool startup info in the meantime. I'll have to look into an SWGC. I've never been too keen on the pucks in the floater, so maybe it's time for a change...

    Can't keep chlorine in pool (all chemicals balanced)

    Ok, much to my delight my kit arrived earlier than anticipated. I just took my readings. Based on the extremely high CYA and Calcium Hardness levels I'm assuming a drain/refill is in order. Keep in mind I live in Phoenix and our water here is extremely high in calcium. I drain every two...

    Thanks, I did check there but with shipping it was more than Amazon and still ground. I just went ahead and ordered from Amazon...believe me I am not a huge Amazon advocate but the price was cheaper and shipping was the same time frame so I went with the place I've done business with in the...

    Can't keep chlorine in pool (all chemicals balanced)

    TF-100 kit ordered, but unfortunately it is not eligible for Prime on Amazon and I couldn't find it anywhere else that would ship it faster than ground. Won't receive it until next week so I will update then. Until then I will do my best to keep the chlorine content up.

The only reason I considered it was because it was mentioned in one of the TFP articles I read. I am ordering the TF-100 kit now (will try to find the one with the stirrer per...

    Can't keep chlorine in pool (all chemicals balanced)

    Based on my crash reading and a couple of the replies it seems like getting my CYA down will help me retain the chlorine better. It looks like a product called Bio-Active is recommended in one of the TFP articles I read? I am ordering the TF-100 kit tomorrow, and I'd like to order anything...

    Can't keep chlorine in pool (all chemicals balanced)

    Thank you all for your replies! I didn't receive an email notification that there were replies to this thread, so I just saw them. I will read through them and reply as needed. In the short term I will update my profile. Also, I do use my own test kit (All clear 5 way test kit) but it only...

    Can't keep chlorine in pool (all chemicals balanced)

    Hi everyone, I have an 11k gallon in-ground pebbletech pool. Live in Phoenix, AZ. I can't keep chlorine in my pool the last couple of months, even during the recent cooler weeks (90 degree days). All chemicals are balanced and I keep chlorine tabs filled in a floater at all times. I am...
