My pool is well over 20 years old. I inherited it about 10 years ago and the water was never balanced properly. In fact, until I found this forum, the water was always out of whack. Being that it is a plaster pool, what looks like scaling and/or etching has occurred over time. I'd like to get an acid wash done if it will get rid of the ugliness, but I'm not sure how good a job it will do. I'd hate to pay $250+ to have it acid washed with little results. I'd rather save $ and have the pool remodeled in a few years when we a)have the cash to do it and b)can't stand the ugliness any more.
Here's a couple of photos, one looks kinda blue and the other kinda green, i have no idea why, the water is crystal clear thanks to TFP and BBB.
So a couple of questions:
1. Is this scaling, etching, calcium build-up, or something else??
2. Is it worth it to get an acid wash? - In your opinion, how much of this will clean up??
Thanks to anyone for their advice - if it is not worth it, it will save me alot of $ and I really like that!!
