Hi, we're needing a little advice here.
While our pool has been open for a while this year, tonight was the first night we
got into the attached spa. (I'm typing from it now) As soon as we stepped in we noticed
the seat and the floor are very rough (uncomfortably). Everything was perfectly smooth last year
at closing. There seems to be some scaling in the shallow end (visibly) but everything else looks ok.
The spa is very rough as is the seat in the pool section, again this was smooth at closing.
We're using nothing but liquid bleach due to the high CYA level (100). Also the PH likes to go high
so I keep it in check with Muratic Acid. As of today the levels that I can remember were as follows.
PH 7.4 (added acid yesterday)
I'll retest everything tomorrow and post all results to aid in a diagnosis..
For the **** of it since we were sitting in it anyway we took a scotch brite pad to a small section
and it seemed to smooth it slightly. I'm very confused at this point, I make it a point to test regularly
and keep everything at the proper level. I'm starting to wonder if the PH going high like it does is or wasn't an
indication that this was going to happen. Then that brings me to my next question, how do we fix it?
As far as the pool specs go.
Big *** concrete with attached spa.
1.5 HP Hayward pump
400 K Raypak propane heater
That's all I can remember I'll post all that in the morning too.
Thanks in advance, I'm thinking there's no easy way to smooth things out...
