I have a new liner that is slippery on the bottom and on the walls. I use Pristine Blue chemicals which provides me with a chlorine free pool. I have used this product for years and have never had a slippery pool until I put in the new liner this year.
I do not want any chlorine in my pool for a number of reasons so I cannot adjust the chlorine level. My pool is in-ground; 14 X 28 feet with steps; approximately 12000 gallons; I use a Hayward cartridge filter that runs 12 hours daily; The pool is 28 years old; the pool is located in Clifton, NJ.
The water is clear with no visible signs of algae growth. Chemical readings are as follows: Alkaline 80; PH 8.4; Chlorine 0.
Do i need to ad a small amount of chlorine? Is the slippery problem due to the new liner?
