    Is there a pool vacuum that's amazing?

    I have the new Polaris robot. Works great! Wish I bought it years ago. Check out the pool cleaners sections. A lot of good choices and most are well worth the $1000 price tag.

    Common issue. Feet will become adjusted to it. For now think of it as a free pedicure ;)

    Why not keep FC lower recommended levels?

    Purely for convenience. Go ahead and keep FC at a minimal level. You’ll be adding chlorine a couple times a day. If you keep it higher, you have more time in between dosing.

    Cloudy Water

    It’s fine. Just make sure it’s not too old since chlorine degrades overtime. Pool store has fresh supply. Not sure how long hardware store stores their stuff. Check the dates on the bottles.

    Cloudy Water

    Your pool is cloudy because of algae. You need to do a proper slam. Buy a good test kit and a ton of liquid chlorine. You’ll need to raise your chlorine to slam level until the cloudiness goes away.

    Pool is cloudy after a tremendous amount of shock

    Pool is cloudy after a tremendous amount of shock

    The chlorine smell and the cloudiness are from combined chlorine. Get some liquid chlorine. For reference I had this a couple weeks ago 30k gallon pool. I was out of town so I did a one time slam. I added 12 gallons of chlorine and left the pool running for a couple days. Are you sure the...

    Polaris P9550 review...

    It was something like $1150 after rebate. It was only a weekend sale. He said there will be another one in June. Very happy with the p965iq. It hooks up to WiFi so I can control it from across the world if I really had to. lol

    Need Input on Dolphin Active Robotic Cleaners

    I’m not sure why everyone loves Maytronics so much. I demo’d the s200 vs the Polaris p965iq. The Polaris did a much better job. I don’t have any connectivity issues with the Polaris. I went to 3 local pool stores and they all sold both makes of cleaners and the consensus was that Polaris was a...

    Jacuzzi brand heater...

    Anyone else here have these heaters? I have a Leslie’s very close and looking to replace my old Pentair. Jacuzzi brand is just a rebadged Raypak for Leslie’s. They offer a 5 year warranty on their jacuzzi brand but wonder if I should just get a Hayward instead?

    What would happen if you backwash pipe is clogged...

    Anyone know what would happen if the discharge pipe is blocked? Where would the water be forced to go?

    What would happen if you backwash pipe is clogged...

    Theoretically. What would happen if you backwashed your sand filter but the backwash pipe was clogged. Where would the discharge go? Back into the pool? Or would the pressure build up in the filter? My backwash waste pipe goes into the ground and I have no idea where it eventually ends up. My...

    Benefits of adding DE?

    You can buy DE on amazon. I’ve been thinking about adding it to my sand filter as well since I bought a robot cleaner and won’t be backwashing as often anymore. I will try a cup of DE and see what happens. Current psi is 20.
