So, an update. I did get my kit in the mail. The CH is a whopping 750-800. Now, we moved into this house last year and judging by the condition of other things around here the previous owner was not the most thorough guy. Here's what I think happen - and I am hoping someone here can chime in and confirm my suspicion. The pool deck is some kind of a natural stone, and there's no coping as you can see in one of the pictures. I think the previous owner stopped applying sealant to it a long time ago. It is severely deteriorated, it literally flakes off. I see pieces of it in the pool all the time. I think this is why the CH is so high, its this rock in the water. Is this plausible? I did purchase a sealant and a sprayer and I am planning on applying it tomorrow.
Other than that - the CH and the CYA is through the roof. It's a drain-refill situation and I dont think I can do it this year. I am not sure what to do. Things will probably remain the way they this season and we will scope out what it would take to re-do the pool _and_ the pool deck.
I guess I will give the reverse osmosis guys a call Monday and see what the typical pricing is like. Might be worth it.
Hello all. First of all - I've been browsing for a few days and all I can say is that this is an amazing community. Learned a lot. Now, to my question. I bought a house last year with an in ground pool plus in ground spa. The spa has always been a lot darker than the pool. And really abrasive. Like, road rash abrasive. It is presently empty. So I tried pumice stone in one area. Twenty minutes and half the stone later I was able to rub off the scale. See pic. Does anyone have a suggestion here? Short of robbing a quarry or planting a lemon Orchard and cancelling the gym membership? Pics attached. Thank you.
