Hi, our pool is just hitting the 1 yr. mark. All was fine and then we decided to hire a pool guy. The first one was late, spent all of 5 min here then left, etc. so we nixed him pretty quick.
The 2nd one we kept for 3 months. At the beginning I told him about the light stains on the plaster and showed him. He said getting the chemicals right would fix it. He seemed to know what he was talking about so we hired him. At the end of the quarter he wanted to renew so I went to look at the pool and it was worse!
I let him go but now I am trying to fix on my own. I have gotten the water tested and all things are in the good range. I put some phos free in because that's all it needed according to WPS testing. But stains are still coming. I tried putting lemon and scrubbing to no avail. Now I have a chlorine tab to see if that does anything (the pool guy told me to do this). So far the only thing happening w the tab is it is turning purple on the bottom of the tab itself. Nothing to the plaster.
I am exhausted with trying to figure this out... Please HELP my plaster is staining and I see no way out.
Thanks for any help at all.
