I searched every thread and couldn't find an answer so hopefully someone can help me.
I opened the pool this year and I had terrible calcium scale. I just started a no drain acid wash (I am on Day 3) and the pool looks much better. I say looks because it is freezing so I don't know how it feels. I can tell it's better because the bottom no longer looks like sandpaper.
However, I have a few questions.
1. Can I use my pool robot (it is not a pressure side) to clean/scrub the bottom?
2. Can I run my equipment if I can bypass my heater?
3. After I bring the Alkalinity and PH up do I continue to brush the pool and if so, for how long?
