If you are not getting rid of it you are Probably leaving too many live traces of it in the pool after having cleaned it. This is a drastic method that worked like a beauty for me when I had a similar problem years ago. (1) throw in double the recommended copper based algaecide, (2) over dose it...

Kind of effective, it releases deadly biotoxins that slowly eat away at your skin... Scientists are currently running immense studies on this but have yet to find the culprit.
You don't have to change anything The only thing you have to do is make up your mind about the saltwater chlorinator you intend to use, fit it along the pipe according to instructions or better still get an expert to do it and then add salt to the water. the filtration equipment need not be changed.

To little and bacteria can thrive, to much and it can be harmful to the body.
110. A mile consists of 1760 yards (5280 feet). Therefore, in a pool 16 yards in length, you would need to swim from one end to the other 110 times. (110 x 16 = 1760).
Answer is no You can remove a round one and install an oval after, of course, you make necessary adjustments to the ground--making the ground level in an oval instead of a circle. The only things you might be able to re-use from the round pool are the pump/filter, ladder, skimmer and return...

A Bilge Pump is what it is referred to on ships when you pump water over board. Trash pump.
Without going to the trouble of using a flow meter test which will normally read some where between 222 l/pm or 13320 l/pH that is 58.65 g/pm or 3518.7 g/pH at its weakest to 110 l/pm or 6600 l/pH that is 29.5 g/pm or 1743.5 g/pH A pretty good indicator would be that with the pump...

There are three basic tests for outdoor swimming pools: . chlorine (ppm - parts per million) . pH (in pH units, from 0 - 14, 7.0 - 8.0 is normal for a pool) . stabilizer (ppm, from 20 - 100) This applies to all chlorinated pools, INCLUDING 'salt water' pools, which are also chlorinated by the...

PH will increase with rain water or debris such as leaves that are blown into the pool during a storm. Due to the increased PH level, combined with depleted chlorine sanitizer levels, this generally leads to quick algae growth, even in winter when the water is colder. Several steps will help...

In theory the same amount of water would be displaced in each case; i.e. the coin landing in the boat would cause the boat to displace additional water (sink slightly) equal to its own volume, which is how much the coin would displace were it to fall directly into the pool. This assumes, however,...
Yes, but it would be some swimming pool! The Colosseum was flooded for mock naval battles as a part of the spectacles that were held there.
Answer . Within reason, yes. According to Michael W. Smith II's BleachCalc program, you should add about 160 oz (weight) of dry borax for each 10,000 gallons. It supposedly helps against algae, although we use it to raise the water's pH and to buffer the pH at the level we want. Additionally, it...
Area of deck = (20+2d)x(40+2d)-(20x40) Area of deck = (20x40)+40d+80d+4d 2 -(20x40) Area of deck = 120d+4d 2
Baking soda actually raises the total alkalinity of your pool. This does also increase your pH, but should only be used if your test kit shows low alkalinity. Otherwise you'll raise both pH and alkalinity and then have to use alkalinity down. Borax will raise PH and not alkalinity, but it raises it...
You probably have the same problem I have - take a sample of your water to a pool store and have it tested. I did and needed to add alkalinity, pH enhancer, algaecide and one other chemical. You need a balance. Without doing this you could just continue to spin your wheels. IN ADDITION: Water can...
