My pool CYA level last year was close to 120. Now it is close to 80.
I am happy because my pool for a week or so is very clear. The secret? Maybe because I am trying very hard to balance the water or because I decided to run the variable pump longer. And of course, all the reading from this forum. I learned a lot. Thank you.
At night I run the pump close to six hours (slow flow just for some minimal circulation). During the daytime is running at full power for 5 hours.
I noticed for the first time ever something “building” on the side of the tile pool that look like it is white and solid. It is hard to the touch and with my fingernail I manage to eliminate one. There two more.
I am really concern. I hope is not calcium.
My PH was close to 8 for a while. Maybe because the chlorine is on the high side.
Here is my data as of today with the Taylor k-2006C
The water balance calculator that came with the test kit gave a result of 0.5 in case this is relevant.
What do you think is wrong with this picture. Maybe that “thing” (I don’t really know what it is) is building up because the PH was high for sometime?
What do you think about this?
thank you very much in advance!
