I just recently decided to start taking care of my own pool and have spent some time looking over the TFP site. Hopefully I have followed the directions for posting correctly so I can get some good feed back without looking like to much of a newbie. Here goes,...... A few days ago I noticed that some small patches of "green fuzz" were collecting in the corners of my pool on the grout between tiles just above the water line. Additionally, There are two water fountains which are platter shaped and filled with loose stones. The platters fill will water and overflow back into the pool. Around the loose stones in the fountains a green film has built up. When I brush the pool I do not notice any algae in pool but there does seem to be a light later of dust/dirt. I also notice some calcium deposits (white barnacle looking stuff) on the metal copings in the pool. My question is this, do I need to SLAM my pool? Where do I start to balance the water, get rid of the Ca+ deposits and the say bye bye to the algae????? Details about my pool below.
