  1. So I used Ahhsome for the first time on newer spa (December 2020, first drain). Basically I left it open too long one day during high pollen season and the sun melted the chlorine and got the algae going, I was gone the entire next day and opened the tub up around noon the following day to find it very cloudy with a nice set of algae growing. I shocked it for a few days and then just ran ahhsome today for 30 minutes, but I only ran it at 2ppm chlorine because I was planning drain it into the yard since I can't drain to the street or house drain. It cleaned it well, I wish I read this forum fir
  2. We have had a small (~800L) spa for around a month. Ive begun using the dichlor-then-bleach method today after half-draining the spa to reduce the CYA to close to recommended levels. Questions: 1) How often? The providers said drain every 3 months, but apparently that's too long for a small spa. The Taylor site recommends the formula: Size in Litres / (10 x # of bathers daily) which comes to just 40 days for us. I think we should be able to go longer than that, because we wash with soap first and we are pretty small people. What guidelines do other follow? I'm thinking 2 mo
  3. Hello, I am a new homeowner. My home came with a working Caldera Vacanza hot tub, however I am unable to find the drain valve. I opened the side hole (see pictures) but there is nothing there. The only loose hose that I see is the one highlighted in the picture. Can someone let me know what I am missing? Thanks
  4. I am wanting to drain my CleverSpa Waikiki but it didn’t come with an attachment to connect to my garden hose. If I can’t connect it to a hose the water would run down the side of my house causing a flood of 1100 litres of water. I’ve tried contacting B&Q and CleverSpa and received no help. I’ve googled attachments and found nothing compatible. Has anyone ran into this issue? This hot tub model is new so I bet I’m the first one needing to drain this tub so far so I’m probably screwed Thinking I’ll empty it with a bucket but hoping maybe someone on here might have a suggestion.
  5. I have a 6 month old Artesian Nevis spa which appears to have ozone and UV sanitizers installed since the lights for those are illuminated on the panel and there are little bubbles coming out from the footwell like the service tech at the dealer said there would be. I also have a Microsilk system which produces the tiny oxygen bubbles. When I got it, we filled according to instructions using a dichlor system. No issues and kept the chlorine pretty minimal, adding more after each use, since we always showered first and went in au natural. I had to go out of town for 3 months, so turned
  6. I found the suction from the main drain to be very low. Do I need a plumber? Thank you.
  7. Help! The pool and hot tub floor drains do not drain any water. Bought a home with a pool and hot tub not in service. The Hot tub water level is above the level of the pool. The hot tub has a spillway into the pool. There are 3 pumps laying in a pile of misc valves and cut off lines, etc. There is also a sand filter and a propane pool heater. I pumped out all of the bad water and have now identified 7 out of 8 of the lines. My biggest question is why wouldn't the pool drain by gravity with all of the lines cut off? I can blow air into the backwash line or drain line and air bubble up t
  8. Hi! New to the forum and new to owning a pool. We just bought a house with an in-ground gunite pool. It was built in 2008/9, so it's only a few years old. I am trying to understand and figure out the plumbing. My main question is where exactly is the return and is this setup using more than one? It's currently winterized and only half full, so I can't run the pump to find out, but I figure most of you will be able to instantly recognize the set-up. Below is a picture I found of the pool when it was first built, showing all of the plumbing coming in/out of the pool, and below it a picture of t
  9. I have a 30+ year old gunite pool that was recently renovated and replastered. This year I opened it up to find over 80% of the water was gone. A few dye test leak detections later it appears that the main drain is leaking out right around where the pipe meets the drain (it's an old all-gunite main drain, there is no PVC drain box). The hydrostatic valve I have is just an old hockey puck heavy plastic disk around an o-ring right near the drain but seperate (this was the initial suspect for my leak, but turned out to be ok...). The main drain line was pressure tested and it holds pressure j
  10. Hello, We moved into a home 3 years ago with a gunite Anthony & Sylvan pool that we are told is about 30 years old. I prefer to close the pool myself but I am perplexed about one aspect of blowing out the lines. I've already done everything including balancing chemicals, covering the pool, detaching the filter motor, moving the filter and motor to the shed, etc. The part I am not confident about is the main drain. The skimmer has two round holes - 1 inlet and 1 outlet. They are located on the sides of the skimmer and not on the bottom as I've seen in many youtube videos. We have a m
