So my new pool has been up for about a week. I have had a LOT of sand or what looks like sand in the pool since it's been filled. Pool builder never came by to clean it up, I do have first month free on the servicing of the pool so I was hoping he would do it. Anyway, never came by so I talked to him and he told me to buy the brush and pole and net and I could do it myself if I really wanted to get it done.
Anyway, I did it, pool plaster looks very discolored in certain areas (I have midnight blue marbletite). Like REALLY streaky, he insists it's just the sand that's making it look that way so I wanted to brush it to see if it's true and, of course, it's not the sand. So he's coming by tomorrow to take a look. I'm expecting a long fight on this plaster issue. Anyway, back to the question. I ran my range of tests using the Taylor K2006 kit. I tried getting the FC reading but no matter how much R-0870 I add, it never turns pink or anywhere near pink. Just flat out clear. My other readings are as follows: TA 80, PH off the charts deep red purple so I am assuming 8.5? CH 150. I wanted to run the CYA test but I couldn't find the R-0630 in this kit? Does it come with it or do you need to buy it separately? Water is pretty warm, I'd say around 85 degrees, it's not refreshing cold or cool at all. Anyway, I tried adding what little info I have into the pool math and it's telling me my pool water is not doing the plaster any favors.
