    I’m guessing that iron does not show up in any type of testing?

    Stain removal

    I do know there is nothing to scrape. It’s flat and seems to be in the plaster. That was why I was thinking it was not scale but I have tried the tablet and had no change in color. Will try the dry acid. Thanks

    Run time on timers

    does anybody know if you can put multiple on/off screws on timers? Want to turn in the pump in the morning for a few hours then the rest at night when chlorine is not gassed off so easily. Any thoughts

    No real reason besides picking up the leaves and debris before opening. It is winterized, was just curious.

    fine mesh winter cover

    I have a mesh cover and have opened to not a green pool but it’s not crystal Blue either. The mesh is great cause it lighter easier to store and easier to put on. It does not keep all debris out. Some does get in there. Your pool is drained quite a bit to allow fur winter precipitation to seep...

    Jacks Magic #2

    Anyone here have experience with using this stuff? I have some scale area I want to get rid of but have some concerns using it. Can you use it for spot removing? Can you swim after using it just for spot removal? Any precautions? I have read the directions but looking for real time use...

    ph too high

    If this is a plaster pool I can tell you from experience the acid works the best for me. If it is only a month old you will go through quite a bit of acid as the plaster cures.

    I didn’t mean below skimmers, I meant below the top of the skimmer.

    Non stop rain filling pool almost to coping

    What did you mean run it to your gutters? I like it just don’t understand it. Do you mean the pipe out of the ground from the gutters?

    Non stop rain filling pool almost to coping

    I am also here in Md. I drain mine until it gets below skimmers. I still run my pump as it’s important to keep water moving with warm air and water.

    Chlorine Tablets ok?

    Wrong forum to ask that! Lol, but I have realized the tablets are good for some things. Vacations, long time away but not in excess. There is plenty on here about why not tablets. Big thing I read about is the cya can go through the roof without you knowing and then you will have bigger issues.

    Cloudy??

    The plaster is only 4 years old. But I’m not sure what the negative csi even is or how you would fix it. But at any rate it clears up today after a good cleaning of the filters. I did notice though that my filters pressure shows higher than normal, 8-10 psi over, even after I cleaned the filters...

    Cloudy??

    It’s unreal, my kids think I’m crazy and my wife says I obsess too much. But I can’t stand any dirt in it and my level must be right. I’m always doing something with it. [emoji38]

    Cloudy??

    Got some good numbers but seems a bit cloudy. Had a big pool party yesterday and raised the fc numbers up some in advance. Fc-6.5 Ph- 7.6 Cc-0 Cya-40 Ta-50 Ch-200 Maybe it’s just my eyes but seems not as crystal as I have seen before. Really hot days up here inNE. Thanks

    UV Sunblock Cream SPF50 in pool

    It’s fine, keep your fc a little high if you get a lot of kids with sunblock floaters. The filter will eventually clear it out. It may take a little longer if there is tons of it,

    Which one first

    I am using the sock method, and I no longer use the mineral kit. My numbers are pretty good but in the east we got tons of rain recently and I think that is what brought my hardness down so much. Fc-3 Cc-0 Ca-150 Ph- 7.6 Cya-20 Ta-80 Thanks

    Which one first

    I need to add stabilizer and increase hardness, any reason I should not do both at same time? Also can you swim while adding these. Thx
