Thread: White Snow settling on pool bottom,..

    White Snow settling on pool bottom,..

    There seems to be some white snow looking stuff coming out of the discharge lines and settling on the pool bottom.
    We vac it out and discharge it over board to keep it out of the filter but it seems to keep coming back every so often.

    Not sure what it is, when you try to pick it up by hand, it dissolves away.
    It's like it is in solution form and it is precipitating out every so often. I had put a enormous amount of Borax at one time to counteract
    me putting in to much Muriatic acid when the new plaster job needed brushing daily.
    Is this some of that Borax (Mule Team from Walmart) continuing to work it's way out?
    Hoping that it is just a matter of time before I get it all out.
    Also there is a SWG that I've been told to put at 100% and am wondering if this has something to do with the SWG being turned up too much.
    Any ideas?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Could you post a full set of water test results and also tell us some basic specs about your pool, what surface, kind of filter, number of gallons, etc?
