Well our nightmare pool remodel continues.Remodel was started the first week of June and we still haven't had a swim yet.
During the plastering process, the PB did not mix the dye in the hopper long enough and we got dark blue color streaks in the finish.The finish we chose was Luna Quartz by Wet Edge. The PB attempted to "burn" the color streaks out with gallons and gallons of muriatic acid. Well, needless to say it did not help. Yesterday, the PB sent out an employee to "neutralize" the acid that was put in 3 days ago. He added 20 #s of Sodium Bicarbonate to the pool. I just tested the pH and I am still in the 6.5 -6.8 range,TA was 50.
I thought that Sodium Bicarbonate was to raise the Alkalinity and that Soda Ash is to raise the pH. Am I wrong???
