This is our second season of having our pool. We've noticed a foul smell around the pool area. I highly doubt it is the water itself as I'm a water nazi and check the water weekly. I keep a daily check on the skimmers and empty those daily as well. We do back up to woods so I thought it may be coming from there but it is more noticeable around the pool patio.
We had the pool guys change out one of the three lights that was having an issue a week or so ago and he said one of the bubbles that came out of where the light is had a bad smell. He said it was probably stagnant water in that line.
Is there anything I can do or anything else I should check? I suppose "stagnant water" is the best way to describe the smell. Is it possible the other lines may have stagnant water?
Again, our pool water is crystal clear and was just checked. This smell is driving me crazy, no clue where its coming from and is a little embarrassing when we have people over.
