Hi, this forum has helped me with so much already. I didn't want to post until I received my TF-100 kit. UPS came today and here are my test results.
CH 150. Never added Calcium cuz pool peeps said new pool curing and to give it a bit of time.
CYA 60ppm. A week ago it was 160ppm. We drained 2 feet and refilled. I stopped using the 3" chlorine pucks
Our Problem: the diamond brite Tahoe blue plaster started out great. Then image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg it started turning white with swirls. Once again we have not added any calcium. Since the CYA problem; I only use liquid chlorine made at our local pinch-a-penny and muriatic acid when the Ph jumps up.
I met with PB. He has "never seen anything like this before" and he will send out his pool chemical person to look at it. It's been 3 weeks now. Granted we had a major flood August 12 that has left this area mostly homeless; so I'll give the guy a minute. I want to teach myself how to care for this pool. Thank goodness I found this forum. We are also getting little brown stains; that I treated with Vit C. They do disappear but some new ones form. Anything I should do? Thanks for that tip!
Please help us fix our plaster! I need education to have a conversation with the PB. Thank Y'all!
