Back in September there was a 5.4 earthquake 40 miles away. Couple of days later we had a couple of big storms that dumped 10 inches of water in less then 24 hours. I pumped the water out to normal levels and then shut the pump for 5 days. When I came back, the water was below the skimmer.
Problem # 1 started to pressure test the lines, and was unable to keep presure from the skimmer to the pump.
Problem # 2 plugged the pipes and water in the skimmer whent down.
Problem # 3 when I lowered the water I noticed 3 coopper stains on the steps on my 18 month pebble tech pool.
For the last 2 months I have kept the PH and CL within range. I have been using my aquabot to circulate the water. This weekend I am planning to put the looplock cover.
My questions are: Should I add sequestring agent to the water? What should I do for the 3 cooper stains on the steps (some of the stain is bellow water and some above)? Since the pump is not running, Should I add anthing else? What should I use on the skimmer to seal it? Without digging out the pipes, How to find the leak?
Any commdents would be appreciated.
