Problem maintaining FC levels in salt water pool - faulty Intellichlor?

Problem maintaining FC levels in salt water pool - faulty Intellichlor?
Hi there all - just opened my pool (in Toronto) two days ago, test the water, and balanced with the chemicals suggested by the pool store. Added PH-, Cal booster, 8L of liquid chlorine, stabilizer and 2 bags of salt. 14,000gal pool.
Two days later and the test strip is showing results in the first pic. This is after I kept my Intellichlor on for 10hrs day 1 and 8hrs today. I added another 4L of chlorine last night. Salt level is at 3200ppg, and water is clear.
Any idea what’s happening? This is my second year and the Intellichlor is 2yrs old - could it be faulty? I forget when opening the pool last year but had the same issue and the pool store told me to add something like 20L of chlorine to kickstart the salt cell. Is that a thing? Should I do it again this year??
Thanks for all your advice/input.

K2 Diary 6: Sidequests
In the previous episode, I promised to start working on nuclear processing and biomass generation. Therefore, I started with... neither of those things.

Metal 3: This Time It's Personal

I started mining and processing rare metals. This isn't entirely off-topic; nuclear reactors require rare metals for some reason.
Which brings me to an interesting design question. Rare metals.
In vanilla, iron and copper make sense. They're similar materials in that they both have to be turned into plate. But more things take iron than copper (at least, initially). Plus, iron can become steel, while copper doesn't have a more refined form (LDS doesn't really count, as it incorporates lots of stuff). The two materials are similar but are used differently.
Rare metal is basically copper++: it's like copper except you have to mine it in a special patch. But you also need a liquid to mine it... just like uranium. Unlike uranium however, the liquid you need to mine it is not exactly useful. Oh sure, when you get into lithium production, I'm sure you'll need chlorine by the bucketload (though apparently making lithium from chlorine is catalytic with regard to the chlorine, so...). But at present, chlorine is otherwise useless.
Overall, it feels like K2 is just repeating ideas from vanilla. It's just another kind of plate, except specific to higher-end items. Though I am grateful that there's no nonsense like "rare metal beams" or "rare metal gears".
That being said, the presence of the stuff does create an interesting dynamic with regard to purple and yellow science. Back in vanilla, you could pick either one to research. And while yellow was more resource intensive, both of them only required the same resources you already were using. You might need to tap more patches, but you were tapping the same thing.
In K2, purple and yellow both rely on a new resource that was previously unavailable. But they each require a different new resource. Purple requires U-238 (which also means that there's a much better sink for the stuff than vanilla), which in vanilla was purely a bonus that you could freely skip. Yellow science requires blue circuits which now take rare metals instead of absurd quantities of green circuits (directly). And this is probably why raw metal ore requires a fluid to mine them, the same way uranium does. But of course, they require different fluids.

Ore Washing Sucks and I Hate It

At some point, I researched a thing called "ore washing". And since I was setting up a new mining&refining site, I figured it was worth a look.
The basic idea is that "raw" ore has a 2:1 ratio with plate. However, you can take raw ores and put them through a chemical process which turns them into enriched ores. This transformation is at a 3:2 ratio, but enriched ores are processed into plate at a 1:1 ratio. So it effectively gives you a 50% bonus in how much plate you get from a given amount of mined ore (and with full module 3's in advanced buildings, you can get a better than 1:1 ratio of raw ore to plate).
I admit that it probably wasn't a good idea to start washing with rare metals, since they require an otherwise mostly useless fluid (HCl) that I didn't already have lying around. But wow, was this annoying to set up. It feels like the Factorio equivalent of busywork.
From a design perspective, it effectively justifies slowing you down relative to vanilla. Miners are no faster in K2 than they were in vanilla, and many recipes don't compensate for the 2:1 ore:plate ratio. So basically, you need 2x the miners in K2 for the same stuff as vanilla. This opens up design space for ore washing's 50% bonus without completely breaking the game's resource model.
Regardless, I am not looking forward to redoing my copper, iron, and steel manufacturing for this bonus. Nor am I looking forward to trying to build a direct, train-to-train washing setup for my eventual megabase.
One thing I do find clever about ore washing is that you don't need to constantly introduce water into the system. Dirty water is perfectly reclaimed into regular water, so once you have some water in the system, you can recirculate it indefinitely.
Raw Metals Setup

Nuclear Processing

Well, now that I have rare metals coming in, I can automate a bunch of stuff that doesn't require rare metals. I've been neglecting to automate pumps and other things that require engines. Like locomotives. And if I'm going to do nuclear processing, I'm going to have to get sulfuric acid far away from where it usually gets made. So here's a neat, tidy setup for a bunch of random stuff:
What does spaghetti look like?
And yes, I'm automating nuclear reactor production too, including all of its buildings. When I finally get Kovarex up and running, I'm going for a 2-reactor setup (which ought to be 1GW). So best to be ready for that.
Oh, and it's super hideous to have to shove a gigantic crusher and filtration plant in the middle of my build just to get the quartz I need for heat pipes.
Nuclear Automation
And yes, I realize that copper is really low. That's a "next time" problem.
It is at this point that I realize that trains... don't run on coal anymore. They have their own dedicated fuel type, and my only refinery for that was temporary and I deconstructed it hours ago.
So now I have to build that at my main oil setup. And it's turning into a nightmare of nonsense.
Well, that certainly... exists.
Fiendishly ugly, but I don't have time to fix this. I need to get uranium processing going so I can start building up U-235 to (eventually) feed into Kovarex. And yes, I did push some nests and get biomass up and running. But still, yuck.
I used the same rail blueprints I usually use for my block megabase. They work well enough, despite my base not having been built within that arrangement.So that's how sulfuric acid gets to the mineral patches.
On the plus side, laziness accidentally solved the "uranium ore causes damage now" problem. When I went to set up the mine, I had forgotten to bring miners. But since everything in the area is under a robot network, I just placed blueprints and let the bots do it.
Uranium Processing at Last
But now that I have centrifuges, I can use them to process stuff. And yeah, having four random outputs is in fact terrible. Fortunately, I can funnel the stone to a nearby crusher, while the iron just gets fed to the existing iron furnaces.
So now it's just a slow, steady march to 40 U-235. Whenever I research Kovarex, of course. Given how slowly I seem to be building, I strongly suspect I'll have 120 by the time I get purple science started.

Next Time
It's time to start tapping into my vast network of resources. The ultimate goal is to automate purple science, which means I need to get some new coppeiron going. I also need to get more electronic components and red circuits. And while I'm there, I may as well build blue circuits, LDS, and more steel.
Fortunately I added 60MW of power generation, so I can do all of this with my shiny new prod-moduled electric furnaces.
But before all of that... I've got to rebuild my oil processing.

2023.05.31 16:29 corignae Do you think there could be a correlation between children opening their eyes in chlorinated water and development of poor eyesight over time?

I used to exclusively swim with my eyes open under the water in chlorinated pools with no goggles. I was a dumb kid and my parents never told me any better. Now, I'm blind as bat, and I'm still young (under 30). I don't open my eyes under water anymore of course but I was not born with bad eyesight. It got worse over time, namely when I was a teenager, and when I used to open my eyes under water I was between 7-13 or so.
What do you think? I've never heard of this before and no one talks about it.
Do you think exposure to chlorine can damage the eyes? I wonder if there is a correlation between the coming generations' increasingly poor eyesight and exposing their eyes to chlorinated water?
Why is everyone's eyesight getting worse anyway? And why is there 0 discussion

2023.05.31 02:04 SimpleSyrupLime ShopRite: a case study in greenwashed packaging (and why I stopped buying any ShopRite branded products)

ShopRite: a case study in greenwashed packaging (and why I stopped buying any ShopRite branded products)
Hello, packaging designers of Reddit!
Today, I want to address an unfortunate trend in the industry that needs our attention and action. It seems some brands, like ShopRite, are resorting to deceptive packaging practices, and it’s time for us to discourage such behavior and uphold the integrity of our profession.
Let’s start by examining Picture 1, where you’ll find a green box on ShopRite’s packaging that initially appears to contain an environmental pledge. However, upon reading the entire paragraph, you’ll quickly realize that it’s nothing more than filler content, devoid of any meaningful information about their product’s environmental impact. As designers, we should prioritize transparency and avoid creating misleading packaging elements like these.
Now, turning our focus to Picture 2, we see ShopRite’s deliberate use of minimalistic and off-white packaging to mimic environmentally friendly brands. By adopting similar design aesthetics, they intentionally blur the line between their product and genuinely eco-conscious alternatives. As designers, we have the responsibility to create honest and distinct packaging that reflects a brand’s true values.
In contrast, Picture 3 showcases Seventh Generation’s packaging with its unmistakable white, green, and off-white branding. By highlighting this comparison, we emphasize the importance of maintaining visual integrity and avoiding design choices that confuse consumers seeking genuinely sustainable options.
So, what can we do about this issue as packaging designers? Let’s take action together!
Firstly, let’s educate ourselves and others about the consequences of deceptive packaging. Share this knowledge within our professional communities and engage in discussions that raise awareness. By encouraging dialogue, we can foster an environment of accountability and ethical design practices.
Secondly, let’s lead by example. When designing packaging, let’s prioritize transparency, clarity, and authenticity. Avoid using design elements that mimic or imitate eco-friendly brands without genuine commitment. Instead, let’s focus on accurately representing a brand’s values and communicating its environmental initiatives truthfully.
Lastly, let’s advocate for ethical packaging design standards. Engage in conversations with industry organizations, attend conferences, and participate in forums dedicated to sustainability and ethical design practices. By actively promoting responsible design approaches, we can influence the industry as a whole and discourage deceptive practices.
As packaging designers, we have the power to shape consumer perceptions and impact purchasing decisions. Let’s use that power wisely and inspire positive change in our industry. By rejecting deceptive packaging practices, we can create a future where transparency and integrity are the cornerstones of our profession.
Join me in taking a stand against deceptive packaging. Together, we can shape a more honest and responsible design landscape.

2023.05.31 01:59 SimpleSyrupLime ShopRite packaging copies green brands, but they make no environmental pledges

Hey fellow Redditors,
I wanted to bring your attention to a concerning practice I recently came across at ShopRite that has left me frustrated and feeling deceived. It appears that ShopRite has intentionally designed their paper towel packaging to resemble environmentally conscientious brands like Seventh Generation, yet they make no environmental pledges of their own. This tactic seems to confuse customers and mislead them into thinking they are purchasing a more eco-friendly option.
Let’s start with Picture 1, where you’ll notice a green box on the ShopRite packaging. At first glance, it appears as if there’s an environmental pledge, but if you read the entire paragraph, you’ll see that it’s merely filler content that says absolutely nothing about their product’s environmental impact. It’s disheartening to see a company trying to create an illusion of sustainability without actually making any commitments.
In Picture 2, you can clearly see how ShopRite uses minimalistic and off-white packaging that closely resembles the style of Seventh Generation and other environmentally friendly brands. By doing so, ShopRite’s products blend in with those that genuinely prioritize using recycled paper or employing non-bleach processes. It’s a deliberate attempt to mislead consumers who are actively seeking environmentally conscious options.
For a stark comparison, take a look at Picture 3, where the packaging of Seventh Generation stands out with its distinct white, green, and off-white branding. ShopRite even strategically places their own brand next to the genuine Seventh Generation products, creating confusion and making it harder for customers to make informed choices.
So, what can we do about this? Firstly, let’s spread awareness about this deceptive practice. Share this information with your friends, family, and fellow shoppers. Encourage them to scrutinize packaging and not fall for such misleading tactics.
Secondly, let’s take action by expressing our concerns to ShopRite directly. Reach out to their customer service, social media accounts, or even consider writing a letter to their corporate headquarters. Let them know that we won’t tolerate greenwashing and misleading practices.
Lastly, we can vote with our wallets. Consider supporting truly environmentally conscientious brands and products that have transparent environmental commitments. By choosing brands that prioritize sustainability, we send a powerful message to companies like ShopRite that we demand honesty and authenticity.
Together, we can raise awareness, hold companies accountable, and discourage ShopRite and others from engaging in such deceptive practices. Let’s protect the integrity of environmentally friendly brands and ensure that consumers can make informed choices that align with their values.
Stay vigilant and don’t let greenwashing fool you!

2023.05.30 15:21 MrStraightEdge A little help about adding liquid chlorine

Hello again,
I'm back with another quick question. My salt generator went out on me so I am using liquid chlorine to keep my pool sanitized. Using the SG last few years it was rare I ever did much other than at the start of the year. So I am just wanting to make sure this is normal maintenance when using liquid chlorine.
My pool's (26k gal vinyl) chemical levels I believe are in line. (Ph 7.6, ALK 80, FC 3 minimum always, CYA 45ish) and my pool is the cleanest it's ever been. The pool gets direct sunlight from sunrise till sundown. No shade other than if it's cloudy out.
I am adding liquid chorine every other day to keep my levels up. The trouble free chart shows with my CYA I'm supposed to be 5-7 but minimum 3. So I haven't let it go below 3.
What I gather from reading a ton of posts on here is even if your pool is on the spot with everything it's not uncommon to add liquid chlorine every other day since the sun eats it up along with us swimming in it. I just want to make sure I'm not doing anything wrong. If adding liquid chlorine every couple days is normal then I'm good to go.
Thanks in advance

2023.05.30 12:25 CoderStone I've done it. The ultimate petroleum well is complete.

I've done it. The ultimate petroleum well is complete.
Edit: Turns out no build is ever complete. I have added the petrol based turbine cooling (and removed the tepidizer) function to create this design that gains a LOT more power back. (Enough to extract using a transformer, almost.)
Updated design produces 240w on average, so that's a pretty insane build :)
Sadly it's technically 1 tile taller, but the total blueprint is pretty similar. I suppose you could remove those batteries and now you'd be set :D
The ventilation is the exact same idea as below, so i'm not including it.

See my previous design here: outdated, shrunk by 1 tile vertically to make it nicer.
See Fradow's original concept here:
This is (possibly) the theoretical limit of how compact you could get a self powering petroleum well build. It has been ested for 200 cycles, I think that's enough. Note that this was tested at like 14fps, so earlier game it may behave differently.
First of all, there are a lot of limitations thanks to how compact the whole thing has to be.
The heat exchanger for the petroleum is way too short, so the last tile before the water goes to the aquatuner room is a little colder than I'd like. There is no way to get around this- there simply isn't enough space. That puts a hard cap on the efficiency of the design, if I had one extra tile of space to the right, it'd consume a lot less power.
Due to plumbing limits, it's not possible to cool the outgoing petroleum with the aquatuner, as you will see below. There simply is nowhere to route the pipes so that the aquatuner coolant doesn't reach absolute zero without the tepidizer room. (The hotter the outgoing petroleum, the more power you make from running petrol gens up at steam temperature inside of a sauna, so it really doesn't matter to be honest.)
The oil well for this design has a melted reservoir (if you dump 1000c or so liquid on a oil reservoir, it'll melt and vanish.)
If you don't want to do that in case you decide to use another design in the future (who knows why) you can just move the stuff inside the steam room (gas valve, atmo sensor, gas vent) one tile to the left, and remove the lead and insulation tile lock on the oil well. Put a single 1g chlorine packet into the room, and it'll be nearly as efficient, albeit "less reliable".
The basic idea behind the build is that pipes don't burst when you are only supplying 10% of max capacity, no matter what happens.
This means that I can carry 550C water 1kg/s and not have it turn into steam when it goes into the oil well, and 1kg/s water at 550c turns into petroleum at 550c immediately. Note that you can run the aquatuner room up to 560-570c without getting sour gas, but you should definitely prime it below 540c, and then warm it up slowly. I'm running at 560c for late game stability.
This process is incredibly heat positive, and we use that to get all of the power used back.
This design does not need to be hooked up to the grid at all asides from the warming up stage, which actually only takes 3-5 cycles (then heats up a little more in a bit to generate extra power)
There's a lot of niche mechanics that were used to make this possible, ask away in the comments.

Lastly, i'd recommend hooking up just a few more batteries to this build outside of the well itself, as backpressure release can be just a little dodgy.

2023.05.29 07:25 Realifeanthony I have this very outlandish theory about Butterscotch based off of events from ‘The View From Halfway Down’

Idk if this theory has already been posted, but I feel especially since watching S6E15 I’ve been able to piece it together more thoroughly. Forgive me if some pieces don’t fit, I’m still trying to work it out.
Bojack’s dad is Secretariat in The View from Halfway Down because, just like Secretariat, the real cause of Butterscotch’s death was suicide.
In the episode Free Churro, we are told by Bojack that his dad died in a “duel”, falling on a rock as he turned around. He explained it as a “dumb way to die”. Especially bc Butterscotch “challenged” anyone who didn’t like his book. I feel as though the talk of mental health and suicide was taboo with older generations, including bojack’s generation, which would make sense as to why he tells people his dad died in a duel, rather than tell people the way in which his father took his life.
In The View From Halfway Down, we see Secretariat and Bojack immediately says “dad!”. Secretariat in this episode is voiced by Will Arnett, who also voices butterscotch throughout the series.
Everyone in this episode is eating either their last meal before they died (Beatrice with the cafeteria lunch tray), what killed them (Herb with the peanuts), or a mixture of both (Bojack with the pills/chlorine water).
We see Secretariat/Butterscotch eating eggs with coffee & whiskey, likely what Butterscotch’s last meal was before dying. So, who’s meal was that? Was that Butterscotch’s last meal, or Secretariat? I’m only concluding it’s Butterscotch’s because we don’t get much background in Secretariat and whether or not he drank a lot. We know bojacks family likes to drink. And for a breakfast meal, it makes sense he puts whiskey in his coffee.
Also, while Herb talks about being suicidal after being fired from Horsin’ Around, he continues to find reasons to keep living. According to Secretariat/Butterscotch, these reasons were “weak”, with him saying “where’s your follow-through?” I have to believe that this was the mindset of both Butterscotch and secretariat, as both men saw no means to keep living after their failures (butterscotch and his book, and secretariat with his ban from racing).
Both horses were bojack’s father, and everyone there had clues and Easter eggs on their cause of death. Having secretariat voiced by butterscotch only convinces me more that butterscotch took his own life after he felt he had no hope for a future after his poor reviews from his only book.
This is very loosely theorized and I am obviously no expert, but upon my 4th rewatch it just got me thinking. I’m sure someone else has already said this theory and if no one has, it probably sounds stupid. But I think if it was intentional to have secretariat voiced by Arnett, it was horrifically genius.

2023.05.29 05:47 Vudu702 Just looking for a little advice

I just set up my new intex 18' x 9' x 52" (4500 gallon) pool. I am completely new to having a pool, I have never owned one before. It came with a 1500 GPH sand filter and pump. I am using the salt chlorine generator that intex makes.
I just got the pool up and filled and ran the water through the filter for 24 hours. I then texted the water with a 7 in 1 test strip and everything looked to be pretty good except it showed no chlorine and no bromine. So, I added salt (120 lbs). I have not turned the generator on yet as the instructions say to let the water circulate another 24 hours for the salt to dissolve.
I'm just wondering, should I need to add any chemicals? Or should I be good to just turn on the generator? The test strips aren't the easiest to read, but everything seemed to match up pretty well with the expected readings except the chlorine and bromine, which I figured will change once I get the generator up and running. Any advice is greatly appreciated, as I am completely new to this and I just want my family to have a clean safe pool to enjoy this summer.

2023.05.28 20:43 look_ima_frog Little dutch boy and the oversized (?) pump

I'm staying with a friend who has a very troubled pool. We visit about once a year and I usually spend most of the week trying to get her pool back into shape. Last year I was trying to help sort out why the water was so nasty; I was looking at the display on the chlorinator and as I'm standing there, the fitting just MFing started splitting and leaking! I got her a new fitting and glued it in, all good. Other drama happened, but not interesting. This year, I opened the valves for the heater and it just started pissing water inside. The pressure switch just erupted and shot out! Now, a valve body (has automated open/close motor) is leaking. There is also a pvc elbow that's also leaking. Additionally, the filter head valve has a mild split in the body itself that is also leaking. WTF?!
I swear this pool is cursed because it just keeps blowing fittings, and splitting stuff. They bought the home about a year ago and the previous owner didn't seem to really know how to operate the system. Filter was freaking NASTY like it'd never been backwashed. The pump was replaced in 18 with a Pentair 3HP 3.95 SFHP pump (variable speed). The pool is about 30 x 15 inground. Does this pump seem like it's overspec'd for this pool? I have had my own pool previously and worked at a hotel with three pools and two spas. I've NEVER seen failure of simple things like PVC elbows and certainly not anything else. The pump head pressure gauge is dead, so I can't tell what the head pressure is. I can't for the life of me understand why I've had to help her replace so much of the damn plumbing! FWIW, the system is fully automated and there is also a hot tub that uses the same pump/heater equipment. It's on a schedule where they alternate filtering/heating.

2023.05.28 02:22 Pinkheadbaby AquaRite Gold line Salt Chlorine Generator not making chlorine

Details- 17,500 gal fiberglass pool. It is entering it 5th year of service. We are in NJ so it is closed for the winter. Approximately 22 weeks open yearly. Good company opens & closes it yearly. I take care of all else. I’ve been lurking on here for years & my pool has benefited. Salt level is good- 3400 verified by local pool store.
This season I’ve had to keep using liquid chlorine. The AquaRite light for check salt and check cell are lit. Salt cell is t 9. I’ve always hosed it out& a dilute acid wash has been done twice. It has usually been set @ 80-100%. I keep written records.
My question is - if I end up getting a new salt cell, would it be good to get a t 15 as it is capable of making more chlorine. My thinking is that I would be able to set it at a lower % and maybe it would last longer? Since my present t 9 has really only been used for about two years.

2023.05.27 16:41 ronchalant New full system, suggestions?

I apologize in advance for this being pretty open ended, but didn't see much here in the way of "here's what I would do if I'm replacing everything"
We're in the NE around Philly, and I'm very interested in converting it to salt water and possibly adding a heater. Just replacing the whole system because it seems like it's an old Frankenstein. Our pool is inground, gets plenty of sun, and is about 22-25k gallons.
Are there suggestions here for what and where to buy? I went to Leslie's and they were talking $15-20k just for parts, and suggested I do it end of season mainly because of available time for techs.
What I'm pretty sure I want is:
  1. Variable speed pump
  2. Salt water chlorine generator
  3. 60 gallon or equivalent filter. I'm not sure between sand, cartridge, or DE .. I like the low maintenance of a sand and the guy at Leslie's indicated there was something I could add to the sand filter to improve its comparatively low filtration?
  4. possibly a heater system - not sure if electric would require a bigger line, or if gas/propane works. I don't have natural gas.
Additional detail: We bought our house 6 years ago, and when we bought it we were told the filter was on its last legs. It lasted six years, but the Jandy DEL48 we have developed a crack and I just think it's time to get a more efficient system.
Current system has a single-speed 2HP pump, which we were told was overpowered for the tang so we always had to keep the polaris line open a bit to moderate pressure even if we didn't have the polaris in. Also a traditional chlorinator.
It's been very low maintenance after the initial cleaning for the most part. The chlorinator just had to be kept stocked with tabs and it stayed clean and clear with the polaris handling leaves/etc. Only had to vacuum it once or twice the whole summer after the opening.

2023.05.26 21:35 PlanetwomanIzzi Anybody else a hoarder?

I see a lot of "vent it into space" on the forums for useful resources and it breaks my heart. Anybody else get the urge to store EVERYTHING for later, even when it's really not worth the trouble?
It was a huge personal victory for me to realize that I don't have to filter that 25mg dot of Chlorine and save it for later. I very reluctantly built a CO2 chimney to conserve power. And then, with the petroleum generator waste pool overflowing, I completely got over my hoarding and cooled my machinery with hot polluted water that I... vented into space.

2023.05.26 19:14 CaneloCoffee21 Salt water Generator not working, should I treat my pool different?

Moved to a new home, so I am finding out a lot about pool service. One thing I notice is that I have a pentair ic40 system, and it seems that not its not working. I have done some troubleshooting like replaced the fuse, checking the wiring, but it seems to have reached its life span (previous owner misled me on certain things). I can't afford a replacement yet, so how should I approach maintenance for the year(s) to come? If salt goes low, add more? Let the salt go low, and just check pH and chlorine? What is your opinion?

2023.05.26 15:13 twotall88 Anyone willing to help me customize this above ground?

I'm going with cartridge filter and salt water and I'm finding the information on this website to be lacking when it comes to selecting the pump/filter combo and the salt system.
Pump: I've read that you want about 100sqft of filter per 10,000 gallons (this pool is 7,500) and that you want the turnover to be at least twice daily, but I've also read that an oversized pump stresses the plumbing and causes the cartridge to not filter as well.
Chlorine generator: They have limited options in this package so I wouldn't be against buying a separate return jet system.
This is the pool I'm considering with site recommended filter and chlorinator:

One special note, the pool is going to be about 200 feet from the breaker box so the entire system being too amp hungry is not ideal. It's looking like I'm going to need 8 AWG wire ran out at a minimum.

2023.05.26 04:35 magginator8 How do you DIY icebath folk keep the water clean?

I was looking around and wanted to avoid using chlorine if possible, so came across Ozone generators. I was wondering if anyone here has success using them. I was slightly concerned since I'd imagine ozone will react with anything in the tub, maybe the silicone sealant or the tub wall to form some questionable compounds. Is this not the case from your experience?

2023.05.25 02:08 twotall88 Above ground pool question

Above ground pool question
So we are considering spending a few thousand on an above ground pool instead of a $200 bargain brand that you most likely need to replace every season (our bestway that we got on sale for $400 was outside last summer for probably a month and then stored away and it has a leak).
I found and the 18'X52" Saltwater 5000 Round Pool looks decent and came out to $4,400 with a few upgrades:
Is there a better brand (value wise) I should be looking at? That one says made in America and I want a salt water system.
