All About Adding Borates to Your Swimming Pool with Bob Lowry

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqf6bQyj6SM I recently sat down with Bob Lowry who is probably is the smartest person in the industry when it comes to pool chemistry. We spend some time talking about borates and their benefits and also the safety concerns around borates. Here are the proven benefits of having a Borate level of 30-50 ppm: Lower Chlorine usage: The Borate helps reduce chlorine usage by eliminating Carbon Dioxide and also by keeping the pH stable. Chlorine last longer when the pH is right at 7.6-7.8. When the chlorine is in the ideal range the killing element in chlorine the HOCI is at the most balanced percentage so the chlorine in a pool with a pH of 7.4 is 30% more effective than in a pool with a pH of 8.0. This is a big factor in creating the safest swim environment and the borates will keep the pH much more stable and in turn, make the chlorine much more effective. pH is stable: The pH won't change much in a pool with Borate in it. So, if you have a Salt Wa

Polaris Cleaner Jets Are Clogged: Cleaning a Water Management System (Polaris P39 Shown)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=800QOsyES7w The Polaris pressure cleaner is designed to run smoothly and last for decades but sometimes you may find it on the bottom of the pool not running. There are several moving parts to the cleaner and sometimes it is a mechanical problem. Often it is something very simple and one thing often overlooked is a clogged venturi. How the cleaner operates can sometimes be an important clue to finding out the problem of why the cleaner is not moving. The Polaris cleaner operates on a separate return line with a dedicated booster pump. There is basically only one failsafe that will prevent debris from clogging the cleaner and that is a thimble-like screen in the cleaners feed hose line. Once debris gets past this point it has the potential of clogging up the cleaner. So water is feed into the cleaner from the dedicated cleaner booster pump to the cleaner and it travels through a series of smaller tubs on the bottom of the cleaner and then out the top

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwYyTt4xgcY Why is balancing your pool so important?

The Ultimate Zodiac MX6 & MX6 Elite Repair Video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kV5AnfHEQQ In this video I go over replacing parts in your Zodiac MX6 if it is not moving in the pool or not turning. The thing I really like about the MX6 vs the MX8 is how easy it is to work on. Not that the MX8 is difficult, but there are fewer parts in the MX6 and it just is compact and easier to work on. You will also be able to isolate the problem easier on the M6 and get it up and running like new again in a matter of minutes. One of the drawbacks of the MX6 is all of the moving parts wear out over time. Fortunately, the parts are inexpensive and easy to install. I would say after 1 ½ to 2 years you will need to start to replace some parts, and this depends on the pool run time also. But figure at the 2-year mark replacing all of these parts featured in this video series would be a good idea. This first video covers what to do if the MX6 stops going thru its turn cycle. Very common in the MX8 but less common in the MX6 since there is only on
