  1. Oh well, tried to use the filter setting on multiport. went inside after it appeared it was having small leak, and then came out 20 minutes later. huge crack in side wall of the top portion of the filter itself, so new top. 18 year old filter, Leslies salesman told me he would replace the whole thing, since I needed a new top and new guage assembly probably (o ring may have been culprit of the leak) and that was going to be about 70% of the price of a new entire filter since he could give me an extra 10% a whole new filter
  2. Also now having a problem with my nautlius DE filter, since it has a pinhole leak out of the top where the guage is held to the top of the filter. tried using silicone adhesive to seal around there but does not look that will work. wonder if that whole guage and holder mechanism is replaceable, or if it is molded there and need a whole new top half.
  3. Chemgeek, then I will use the collective wisdom here since this is a problem that pool owners have encountered. I have a 37,500 gallon pool so how much of this bleach to use. And where will I get it? I am going to try to scour this site and find an answer I hope.

  4. Had water tested, the phosphate level was so so high, that they told me to add a bottle of pool perfect to bring the phosphates way down. my DE filter is now on recirculate, as I was having to backwash the filter every hour and ran out of DE. Now the filter has a small pinprick shooting water out around the pressure guage area, and tried to use silicone sealant and that did not help. what next?
  5. I had read it online. I was cloudy and the pool guy said add a little chlorine, slowly, and so added half the usual shock. that is when it turned green. I will take it to be tested as I have the PH, the chlorine and the alkalinity testing with the drops.
  6. Vinyl liner pool, 37,500 gallons. Used citric acid, about 18 lbs, to get rid of stains. did the trick day one, but on day 3, pool cloudy. day 5, went to leslies pool and they said ph low. added 10 lbs, went back 4 hours later, still low, another 4 lbs would do the trick. told me to use my setting of 2 on the heyward chlorinator when i usually use 3. still cloudy today. instead of 3 lbs of shock, i used 1.5 lbs. water looks green all over, i think that is just the chlorine. so, will it burn off and everything right after that? take it back to leslies to test tomorrow evening? suggestions>?
