#1 Sorry, don't have Chemical results prior to Drain. Drained 4/5ths [unintentionally!]
#2 Ready to start up, water full. Doesn't look as blue as I expected and On prior "refills" [???]
#3 Was intollerably "salty" tasting prior to drain; but otherwise, no negative effects. Only out of range test was
continual high chlorine with no salt added. [SWG System].
#4 I can do tests at home. Not sure the "standards" I have include TDS and "Stableization" may be the other test.
#5 I do have two 10 oz bags of "Shock" I can add if that is appropriate as starter until readings and plan is prepared.
#6 Should I buy special testing kit to check for TDS and "stableization" as suggested by Pool Store?
#7 In Las Vegas--it has been 108 to 110 recently. Water very warm!
#8 I am confidient I can do what is needed, if I know what tests to run. I hope I didn't drain the pool unnecessarily.
The "salt" taste was pretty offensive, but, as I said, no effect to skin or eyes.
#9 ANY Suggestion to remove the built-up scale along the tile line. That kind of snuck up. Calcium I suppose.
I don't like the chemical/acid solution, and the stone----well----ouch! What ever works most efficient with least
side effects [ie chemical, etc, in water]. Is there a "power sprayer" device that sprays, ???, sandy "stuff". [Safely; efficiently and without damage or
destructive debris to pool water]. I could rent or buy one?
You all have been WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't say thank you enough for the help!
Oh, I suppose I need to buy some bags of salt? I really don't understand the "buying salt" thing. I am told that chlorine
generates automatically from the sun (I think).
Is there a simple explanation for the extreme salt taste? Is there any possibility I didn't need to drain a portion of the water?
OH! Thank you.
PS I can post the "standard" test results from the "basic" testing devices I have available.
