    Jim, they are actually very close, within 10 feet, through an exterior wall (siding). I will try to bring the interior unit outside tomorrow right beside. I opened the exterior one today the pwr light was long slow blink (about 5 seconds on/off), no other lights. Will keep you posted, and...

    Hi all, I have the ScreenLogic2 kit and am having connection issues with my panel. I’ve tried resets, and researched a ton to no avail - and honestly some reading has been so far over my head! In looking at the 3 led lights on front of indoor panel the pwr is flashing - I understand this to be...

    I haven’t used the service yet, I was able to get a test kit delivered, but try crossborderpickups.ca (thanks to Smach for recommending).

    I think I am done SLAM?!? Now what?

    Hi again guys. Hectic few days, admittedly haven’t tested fill water yet but WILL do it. Question. Seems my cya dropped during slam? Is this normal? I’m topping up slowly to get back to 70 but seemed to be in the 50 area. I’ve read on this test yet still have zero confidence with it! But wife...

    Water under liner

    Has anyone pumped out water from behind liner? I just went back and there was water back again - not much but some. I’m hoping this has just migrated to the area since there’s an opening/less pressure on the area. I’ll repeat the pumping process throughout today and see what happens.

    Water under liner

    Thanks Texas Splash, The edges of where the wall meet the floor were bubbled out maybe a few inches I guess. You could definitely feel it walking around the pool. I ended up pulling some liner out of track and investigating. There was a decent amount of water back there. I picked up a pump...

    Water under liner

    Hi TFP, New question now. I stupidly left my sheer descent waterfall on today not adjusted - meaning not enough water to it. Lots of water ran down the face, and I did notice it in the track that holds liner. Got in pool for first swim in just under a week and I noticed water under liner now...

    Need some ideas for shade for pool patio..

    I've added pergola at my house and some friends of ours. Pretty simple little structure, you can get pre made kits too if you want depending on material choice. On mine I sourced "collaroo" shade fabric (lets water through so pretty safe to leave open position) and went to a sign shop to add...

    No I haven’t. Have always tested pool after. Never even thought of testing fill water.

    I think I am done SLAM?!? Now what?

    Ok dry acid is out!! Thanks guys. Not using Dichlor and won’t be, but have to add water regularly in summer with evaporation.

    I think I am done SLAM?!? Now what?

    I had read that but was so focused on testing and adjusting as often as possible I thought I might delay! I will check the PH as soon as possible mine always seems to raise on me. Before the slam I used acid and will but likely use the dry stuff until it’s gone which is soon and I really want to...

    I think I am done SLAM?!? Now what?

    Good morning! I think I passed the OCLT today, but I am going to continue SLAM one last day. Hard to be patient when you’re staring at a clear pool and it’s hot out, so thanks to the form for keeping advice going. Last night 9PM test I got FC of 29 (10mL test) and CC of near 0 (barely turned a...

    SLAM question re FC usage

    had packed it in before I got message about using the 10ml. I’ll get another crack at it tonight though as I unfortunately lost 3ppm. Pump pressure has stayed down, water clear, pretty much 0 CC.

    SLAM question re FC usage

    I’m in slam at 28ppm. I’ve been using the 5ml for 1 ppm so far. For the overnight test, should I stick with the 5ml 1 drop = 1 ppm or should I shift to 10ml or more. I just did a test, was at 26/27ppm will adjust to get back to 28ppm and then test again before bed. I did a CC test here. 1 drop...

    SLAM question re FC usage

    Hi! Working through a slam, in my third day. After some of the readings I was getting yesterday I was thinking the OCLT would go a bit better but this morning wasn’t great. 4ppm loss. In retrospect I should have re-tested but I added chlorine right away before so I’ll try again tomorrow. Had a...

    First time SLAM, a couple of questions

    Hit post before I finished my thought. I am going to add again, wait an hour or 2 and test again and repeat if necessary thru night. Not holding breath but ideally stable thru the night would be awesome (within the next several nights anyways!!!)

    First time SLAM, a couple of questions

    after last check seemingly using 0ppm over 2 hours, 2 hours later it looks like I am down again to 23ppm or burned through 5ppm FC. Will get back to 28ppm. Is this a normal thing for chlorine to stick around at some points and the used more st others? To me I feel like it should be kind of...

    First time SLAM, a couple of questions

    Just did a check at 2 hours and I actually have 29ppm FC. I’m not adding anything and will check again in another 2 hrs. I added pretty much exactly what pool math required and the sun always out for about an hour on the pool. Is this positive or too early to get hopes up? Will do more checks...

    First time SLAM, a couple of questions

    I should add - main drain is easy I’ll run thru it with skimmer anyways but concern with the waterfall is will the agitation of water really up the ph?

    First time SLAM, a couple of questions

    Hi again guys. Staying on top of this thing, got more chorine/bleach that was bottled in June so I’m confident of the quality, and I’m topping up every couple hours. I took the lights out, scrubbed in there and scrubbed all surfaces. Question, should I run all my lines (main drain I can push...

    First time SLAM, a couple of questions

    Hi All, I’ve done best to read up and prepare for SLAM - first time doing it, have a beautiful clear pool but can’t keep chlorine up and failed an ONCT (lost 2.5PPM). I’ve prepped my PH and bought 20L of bleach (I will get more from supplier today, but know this will get me rolling). I’m home...

    No chlorine again, clear water but think I have some sort of algae...

    Hi, I had previously been running it based on pool store testing and recommendations - have to admit they’ve been pretty good but I was finally able to get the K2006 and waiting on what was supposed to be sent the K2006C - in Canada it was tough to get. Anyways, based on the CYA/FC chart i will...

    No chlorine again, clear water but think I have some sort of algae...

    That’s more than a day, I was away, probably closer to 72hrs in that. We are on city water - I’m hopeful that orange is related to the kids sunscreen - reviewing now looks like zinc oxide (20%) in one, titanium dioxide and a whole whack of other Crud in the other. I just switched the sock that...

    No chlorine again, clear water but think I have some sort of algae...

    Well, just finished morning check, looks like I’ve got an issue. I left the pump on overnight, and disconnected SWG. We were in it last night, but I tested it about 1.5 hours after getting out. FC was 5 last night about 8:30, and 2.5 this morning at 6:30. Blows my mind because the water looks...
