    Pool Math app

    My apps all auto-update whenever I'm on WiFi, so I can only assume that if an update was pushed through the Google Play Store, I probably am on that version. To be certain, I'm currently showing that my installed Application Version is 3.0.9 (3331), last updated July 26, 2019.

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    No. I know of no means to artificially alter the SLAM FC target other than by differences in CYA in the app. I believe that SLAM FC is supposed to be based mainly off of the FC/CYA charts here and in PS.

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    Well, I'm definitely not there, and I'm currently running conditioner into my pool through my unused chlorinator to raise my level from approximately 10ppm. I'll check in the AM to see how much has actually dissolved. If not satisfactory, I'll start putting the squeeze on it.

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    I didn't know if that was a bug or by design. I have another thread going, per your suggestion. I don't know who actually does the dev work on that. I can't imagine that it's a design thing, though. A pool would have to be nearly sewage for a standard SLAM target to be 28 ppm, no?

    Pool Math app

    A little more experimentation may have led me toward something that either may need to be looked at, or is somehow by design but not plainly noted anywhere for users to see. Admittedly, I need to do a better job of logging my maintenance. I do my maintenance regularly, but I tend to enter...

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    It's now showing correctly at SLAM target 10 ppm @ CYA 10 ppm (I'm adding). Is there something about not ticking off those "reminders" that alters the target SLAM FC? I ask because I admittedly forget at times to log my maintenance in the app despite having done it. I mainly put in test...

    Pool Math app

    At the behest of another member here, I thought I'd post this and see if what I was seeing in the Pool Math app is a known issue, a one-off, an undiscovered issue, or whatever. I was combating some algae a few weeks ago and, in so doing, I discovered that my Pool Math app was showing me an odd...

    CYA Addition Technique?

    How about a skimmer sock?

    CYA Addition Technique?

    Thank you for the response. I have a small tub of powdered stabilizer and I've still got some left. I wasn't able to think of any reason why the addition couldn't be made that way, but there are a lot of others here who are a lot more insightful than I, so I like to pick some brains when I...

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    Those screen captures were taken on 7/25, so I don't know whether or not this has been addressed since.

    CYA Addition Technique?

    Hi, all. Last year, when I had my pool installed, I was "blessed" with the installation of an Aqua Smarte auto-chlorinator (basically a different brand of Pool Frog with the Bac Pacs). Since joining up with TFP, since they saved my skin, I've taken any cartridge that was in it out and have...

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    Sorry, I was out of the country for some time. I sent these screenshots to the PoolMath email address, but haven't seen anything back yet. Here they are, nonetheless. Please disregard the maintenance warning on my screen. I had simply not entered the maintenance performed by that time. The...

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    This is the "home" screen on the app off of which the SLAM FC target is being based, apparently (it's just the test results I just entered, copied above). I've also just never ticked the Filter Cleaning box, which is why the reminder is there. It was cleaned a couple of weeks ago. Imagining...

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    Also, still ... what's with the Pool Math app telling me that, with my CYA at 40 ppm, the SLAM target FC is 28 ppm??? If the FC/CYA chart (below) is showing me that, by rights, it should be 16 ppm, either the chart is wrong or the app is wrong. Or there's something else amiss.

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    Here are my test results from 8:40 PM tonight. FC: 17.0 ppm CC: 0.0 ppm pH: 7.5 (ostensibly unreliable, but plausible) TA: 70 CH: 200 CYA: 40 ppm Temp: 82.5°F CSI: -0.38 Also, here are some photos of the offending masses...the last image is there to give perspective as to the scope of...

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    Okay, maybe I wasn't seeing things. Is this app not telling me that target FC is 28 ppm???? Why does it say that with a CYA of 40, when the FC/CYA chart says more like 16? Is this a problem with the app, or is there something else I'm simply not aware of here? Thanks.

    Yellow/Mustard Algae?

    Hi. First, let me start off by saying that I'm currently out-and-about for work, but when I get home later on this evening, I will come back and provide a full test result in this thread. I know that's important. I also know that some of my testing will necessarily be off in current...

    TFP saved my hide last year...now hoping to make life even easier.

    Thanks to TFP, this first-time pool owner (as of last year) was able to maintain his pool with relative ease after being sold all the wonderful chemical buckets that came along with it. Most of these are now just sitting in my shed, good for paper weights (really, really big pieces of paper)...

    Filter pressure gauge full of water

    For those who wound up at this post because they've had ridiculous problems with their pressure gauge, would LIKE to get the TFTestkits glycerin-filled gauge, but need one that is 2" and not 2½" in diameter, see 2" Liquid Filled Pressure Gauges - Stainless Steel Case, Brass, 1/4" NPT, Center...

    Help with first SLAM

    To save a little coin and reduce fatigue, consider getting "liquid chlorinator" as opposed to "household bleach." The stuff that you get in Walmart, Target, Sam's Club, etc., is largely 6% NaClO by volume. I actually found that, so far in my search, the best source for liquid chlorinator is...

    Here I am. This site looks very interesting!

    Hi, all. My name is Jayson, and I live in Fairfield, Ohio. My wife and I just put a 24' above-ground pool in our backyard. I was initially very resistant to the idea, mainly because of the expense and the maintenance. My wife has had a dream of owning a home with a pool. She won. So, now...
