I completed a re-plaster with WetEdge Luna Quartz about a month ago. After 2 weeks of brushing 2x per day and keeping pH & chlorine balanced the water was clear but I noticed footprints, etc. in the coloration of the plaster.
PB came back and did a suspended acid bath for 7 days, pouring 15 gal of MA into my 18k gal inground pool. I brushed again daily (some times 2x per day) but didn't balance the water as the pump was off. Yesterday evening they came back to balance the water and put (I think) 24 lbs of soda ash (at least that is what the receipt says) into the pool, brushed and turned on the pump. I have been running the pump since they balanced the water. At that time, I noticed that chlorine was almost at zero so I poured in a gallon of liquid shock.
This morning I have milky water (esp in deep end where the precipitate has settled) and settled precipitate in many areas. The DE filter was full so I backwashed, threw on my suction-side cleaner to pick up the precipitate and tested the water after backwashing again:
I think from reading other threads that the precipitate is coming from my CH being so high and interacting with the soda ash, and the pH staying low because the TA is so high.
Any thoughts? I left the PB a vmail this morning but haven't yet heard back. it is in the 80s and my wife is asking if the kids can swim today or tomorrow as the tech last night said we should be able to swim today. I cant see the drain covers owing to the volume of precipitate in the deep end, so my answer is "no."
