SOURCE: water is cloudy in easy set pool. How do I clear

not enough info like what kind of chlorine and if salt water set up Cloudy water is usually not enough filtering or low chlorine for an extended period of time Be more specific.

No matter what method salt or regular water you need to turn the pool water over at least 3 times a day/night

Lets use generic #'s if you have a 4000gl pool and a 2000gph pump you need to filter at least 6 hours you will need to adjust the #'s for you and figure out how long to filter.

It is also important to keep the chlorine between 1.0 and 1.5 then set your ph level with either ph up or ph down depending on what yours registers at after the chlorine is set.

Remeber that you must first set the chlorine since the ph is affected by chlorine level.

once both are set then the ph will go up and down with your chlorine so keep it in check after initial setting

for now add a little extra chlorine and filter for 24 hours then vaccum remeber to take out the filter cartridge once or twice a week and hose it hard with the garden hose. I am on my 3rd season with the same cartridge

Solar panels not clear


it is a calcium build up
get a liquid cleaner that removes calcium and scrub it on the panels
just a side note here
I used to worry about the problem as it was affecting all of my garden solar lights until I bought a small solar panel from JAYCAR and placed it well up in the air and away from any spraying water
to my dismay it also went white but it still charges the battery enough to run solar lights all night to next morning
I think that the panel works from ultra violet rays that penetrate the white film so making the panel parts work
for roof panels that charge to the utility grid, the loss from dust and bird droppings is less that 1% so these companies that charge big dollars to clean the panels are in fact close to rip off people get more information by googling for sites that have cleaners to assist you

My machine says it needs salt. My glasses have a white cloudy film. Is this related? Where do you put in the salt?. I see no container. How do I determine the hardness of my water?


You should be able to insert the salt into a container at the bottom of the machine. There should be a screw-top on it. Refer to the user manual on whether you need salt, and how to insert it. The manual/ documentation may have come with a single- use hardness indicator. Alternatively, you can purchase hardness indicator strips. If your electric kettle/ shower has large amounts of white calcium 'fur' in it, they this is a sure indication of hard water, and you should consider using salt

You can cloud your water by adding chemicals that are incompatible. You will cloud the water if you simultaneously add a water clarifier and a chemical to inhibit the buildup of lime scale. You will cloud it if you simultaneously add chlorine and scale inhibitor. You will also cloud your water if you simultaneously add soda ash and a chemical to increase the hardness of the waterResources recommends sodium hypo, lithium hypo, dichlor or calcium hypo to superchlorinate water until it contains 10 parts per million (PPM) of free chlorine.

I have two questions. How do I properly clean my humidifier and recently it has started coating my furniture with a white powdery film. Why has it started that?


there is some cleaning tablets you can use periodically called protec beads ... cleaning can be done using high acid vinegar soak .. then hydrogen peroxide can be used on any mold .. this unit as well as ultrasonic type models will put out calcium dust if your water has calcium added or is hard water .. calcium is often added to water to give it a good taste .. one way to keep the unit clean for a long time is to use only distilled water .. and make sure there is no calcium added .. (read the small print on the container) .. its hard to clean the fan chamber in this unit .. lots of people complain about the dust .. the wick/filter type humidifiers dont put out dust but the calcium does accumulate on the wick/filter .. so you have to change that frequently (6-9 weeks) .. yours doesnt have a wick but still needs cleaned regularly ..

Let your filter run for a couple days, you will get the undisolved solids out of the water.

Cloudy water is junk floating in the water. "Super Blue" is a product I use to make the junk stick together to be collected by the filter.

Dishes are coated with soapy film after full wash cycle


Hi,

The problem is not your dishwasher but rather the water going into it. Hard water when heated up in a dishwasher dries with calcium and magnesium spots(often looking like a white residue). There is a product out there just for this problem and its called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water going into your dishwasher solving this problem once and for all. It is very affordable(like 70 bucks) and has a money back guarantee. You will not want to return it trust me. after the first load you will be amazed. www.dishwasherfilter.com is where you can get it.

GE Profile PDW9200J dishwasher leaves a film and dirty dishes


Sounds like you have an excessive build up of hard water (mainly calcium) in it. Clean it like this: Close the detergent cup cover. Run hot water at the sink to clear cold out of the pipes. Start the machine on pots and pans/added heat. Wait about 10 minutes and open the door. If the detergent cup cover flops open, it is in the main wash. If it is still closed, let it run a few more minutes, check cup cover again, keep dong this until the cover is open. Once it is open it will be in the main wash (the longest cycle) and at that time put in about 2 cupfulls of Tang orange drink in the bottom of the tub. Tang is very high in citric acid and will clean the calcium and other hard water deposits from the tub, pump, spray arms, ect... Make sure your hot water is HOT (130 is great) and use Cascade Complete powdered detergent from now on. Should take care of it... Repeat every 6 months to keep it clean.
