Total alkalinity can be lowered by adding muriatic acid or sodium bisulfate. Acid may be added in doses of up to 1 quart per 10,000 gallons. Total alkalinity tests and further required additions of acid can be made every 2 hours.

Sand filter putting sand into the pool I've changed gasket,replace head,check latereals,checked the size of the sand we use..still doing it

With these pool filters, there are several things that you need to check if you have sand returning to the pools. First, check your laterals are not broken or cracked. Even the smalled crack can cause this to happen so really inspect them well. Also, your backwash rate could be too high. Try lowering your backwash flow rate and see if this helps. Make sure that your air strainer is not broken or damaged. Replace if it is.

High pressure in ''Clean & Clear Plus''. Impeding return and circul

You may want to try soaking them in a solution of 1 cup muratiac acid to two caps of dish or laundry detergent in a garbage can full of water Let soak for about a day and try cleaning again. Depending on the age of the filters this presure may not be that bad as that filter should be good to 60psi. Check to be sure your returns in the pool are returning an ample amount of water and check your guage it self as these are not real presition instruments but designed more for a refrence point guide. With the pump off ck guage to see if it goes back to 0. But if your getting water at returns in pool your moveing water and should not worry to much.

When setting the pump to pull only from the skimmer on my in-ground pool, it doesn't **** enough water to keep the the suction pump full of water. I have to set it on main drain or ''skimmer & main...

There may be a partial blockage in the skimmer plumbing. If you lift out the basket, you may be able to see something there. If not, try a hose and flushing the lines.

Make sure the wear door is functioning properly also.

If this is not the issue, make sure that you have all the valves open so there is no restriction of flow.

Sand Dollar Filter

If sand is returning to the pool, the most common cause is the laterals, or the internal pipe is not connected to the valve properly.

If you have laterals with "slots" on one side and solid plastic on the other side, the slots have to be installed so that the slots face downward, toward the bottom of tank. If one, or more, are facing upwards, you are pulling sand right into the pool. If you have the newer laterals, with slots on all four sides, one, or more, may not be tightly in place.

If you have too much sand in the filter, that could cause this issue also. Pentair recommends using the #20 Standard Silica Sand in the filters.

Hope this helps!

Ray Vac moving slow, circles deep end, sticks on side of pool

I have the same problem and the best solution is to repair/replace the hydro timer kit. It has inner gears that are plastic and wear down and doesn't rotate through the cycle of water flo that changes it's direction. I'm in the process of exhaustive repair and I'm going to replace the hydro timer - (inside part only) and then see what happens. Moving the gears did change it's moving patterns tho.
