    Green Pool But No CC reading

    We're talking a salt water... My neighbour went away. His pool is green green green.....I'm getting 1.5 PPM FC but 0 CC. How is that possible, there is clearly something growing. Should i measure the CYA and proceed with the usual SLAM? I'm not familiar with Salt Water either.

    Dull / Cloudy water for 5 weeks

    CYA testing method - 2 very different results

    It's a bright sunny day today, no clouds. Standing back to the sun, holding the sample at belt level, but it's in my shadow. CYA reads 80. if I move the sample to my side slightly, out of my shadow, I get a reading between 50-60. Should I take the reading in full sun light?

    My heater (hayward H series - GAS) will log a low flow error on anything under 92% pump run speed. This seems very high to me, was hoping to have the heater kit on at more like 60%.

    New Pool Build - Just filled it, what next

    My new pool has been running for about 1 week. Chlorine seems a little low, but dialled up the chlorinator a little bit yesterday. All other levels seem ok. The pool guy told me to dump in a bag of non-chlorine shock once the pool filled, so I did. Do I need to be aware of anything else...
