Hello to All,
We have a pool service but I am starting to learn the chemistry here and doing testing w my TF-100 kit.
Our pool was filled w water in late Jan 2015...have a large spa [800 gal] w 8 jets & blower that has a spillover into pool. Have not used the spa but only about 3-4 times max since we've had the pool. Last time I used the spa 2 weeks ago and more so tonight, I noticed there were pieces of 1/4" size debris moving around inside the spa. Since it was night time when I used it both times, you could see the things in there better w the LED light. When I turned off the blower, it was much more conspicuous. What I am thinking is that since I do not use the spa that often, mold or something formed in the lines, but it seems much more present when I turned on the blower. For example, when I got in tonight after temp reached 101, I did not see anything really visible in there, but after I turned on the blower, then off again w in 15 sec's, I noticed the funk. I turned off the blower bc it was so loud I could not hear the WS broadcast. I took my net and filtered out the stuff. It wasn;t until I turned on the blower again ran it for minute or two then turned it off and it was really in there....netted it as much as I could again, then I just turned the controls from SPA MODE to POOL MODE and ran the pump to clean out the spa and I have the robot shark going too in the pool.
Our pool temp in Hou as cooled pretty well from the low 80's to now 70-71 degrees. Is mold forming in the water lines, or is this something else? What can I do now to rectify the problem? And, then, what can I proactively do to prevent this from happening again? If you have any questions, pls let me know?
Thank you very much for your feedback,
