Can someone post the formula for increasing the FC levels. I use the pool calculator but would like to create a chart for my pool to post by the chemicals. I printed the CYA/ FC chart. thanks
Yes. The exact command varies a little between web browsers, essentially you go to the Pool Calculator and then save the current page, either as a web archive or as an .html file. That saved file can then be loaded into your browser even when you don't have an Internet connection.smileddog said:is there anyway to download the poolcalculator to your desktop? so i dont have to log onto the internet each time to enter my #'s. sometimes I dont have the laptop on and it can be a pain,
Gooserider said:I encountered a minor bug in the web version of the Pool Calc this evening that had me severely puzzled for a while... It is what I would class as a "User Interface Bug" rather than a functional issue.
When I was punching in my test values, I accidentally fat fingered it, and entered my TA as 1100 instead of 110 Because the data window only shows 3 digits, the extra zero didn't show, but my calculated CSI went to 1.1 and the reason didn't show until I noticed that the advice window was telling me how to adjust the value given a TA of 1100... Would it be possible to either increase the size of the data window to 4 digits (like the CYA window) so that the error will show, or pop up an error box if too many digits are entered? - Note that similar issues may exist for the other value windows as well... As I said, this isn't a functional problem, as presumably the program made the right calculation given the bad input, but ideal user interface design should make it as easy to spot bad inputs as possible...
The feature request relates to a minor annoyance with the Pool Calc... Every time I restart my browser and go to the PC, I have to reinput the size of my pool, and all the other variable data like surface type, value set, etc..., along w/ the current values for all the test results that don't really change like borates and CYA... Not a huge problem, but a bit of a PITA to do every time... Would it be possible to do something like stick the values into one or more persistent cookies or some such item (maybe a user id and a database on your end?) so that the calc will "automagically" preload the correct values?
Thanks...JasonLion said:I will add larger input fields to the wish list.
Ahh... Thanks for that info - I didn't know that it was saving a cookie so I hadn't actally looked. Since you mentioned it, I just checked my site specific settings and found that I had Opera set to "delete new cookies on exit" I have cleared that setting, now the only restriction on cookies from the pool calc is only to accept cookies from the site visited... Will see if that solves the problem.The current settings are saved in a cookie. That should work unless you have cookies disabled. Some web browsers always disable cookies for pages loaded from your local machine, so if you saved a copy of the page to your local drive and are using that, it might not work.
