Hi all, if you recall we had our '59 vintage pool remodeled just about 8 months ago? White plaster, ALL brand new salt system, new plumbing, you name it. All was great, but I noticed what I thought were small blotches of algae, or, iron, or something on the side of the pool. Each time my pool guy came I expected that perhaps his brushing the sides would make it go away. (He comes when I'm at work)
I was off the other day and spoke with him. He said he did see it and really does not know what it is. Thought poss our water was having some type of "reaction" with the plaster. Then he brought to my attention the fact that the bottom, by the drains, is beginning to "blotch." If you can imagine the skin disease Michael Jackson had, that is kinda what our plaster is starting to look like. Slowly spreading throughout the pool.
By the way, there is a VERY good chance the entire pool is going to be demo'd, due to the fact "someone" blew it when they made the step/island in the deep end about 6 inches too high. No one can get out! The contractor has agreed to redo the job, gratis. He really is a good builder and we've been happy except for this problem. I'd post pics but I'm not techy.
Thank you all.
