I am a new member and in need of HELP!My husband is our "pool service man". We have had issues with our pool since replastering 3 years ago.I'm guessing that is primarily due to "operator error". We have not been systematic in keeping chemicals balanced, primarily due to lack of knowlege. Husband has degree in sciences, so he has a good working knowledge of the chemicals, but not the pool. We may need to hire someone to maintain the pool, but that has always seemed frivilous to me. Today we have drained half of water out of the pool in hopes of "starting over"...I just want to be sure we do it the right way! He is outside working on pool and I have been reading different areas of this site as fast as possible while he is out there.What has finally prompted this "awakening" is the purple film we have on our hot tub waterfall (into pool) and on sides of pool (more obvious as we are pumping water out of pool). From the limited reading I've done today on your site, the CYA is most probably the reason for the purple film.
Here is what pool store water analysis shows:
Total Dissolved Solids 2500
Can anyone HELP us...quick before Darling Husband makes same mistakes again...we have to get this right. I can send photos of pool as I just took them as a lot of water was being pumped out. We are SO appreciative of any and all help!
Thank you! Thank you!
