My 28k litre charcoal plaster pool is about 3 weeks old and I have a set of test results from the pool shop (I'm still waiting for my k2006 in the mail, as things are very, very slow getting to South Africa). I decided I couldn't wait any longer to post because I've noticed that my walls are suddenly just a little slimy. Now, I'm not sure if this is algae or? It's kind of light, whitey, film of stuff that doesn't come off too easily on some parts of the walls (it gets a little better after brushing - I've been brushing morning and evening for the last 3 weeks). It feels slimy to the touch, but only slightly. My water is clear. Could it be my chlorine and stabilizer amounts that are too low and algae is starting? The pool shop reckoned it was fine. The pool builders told me to leave a floater (HTH PACE) in the pool and nothing else for the first month, so I'm hard-pressed to go against that advice at this stage.
My readings are as follows:
Sat Index: 1.2
The test also mentions that there are no heavy metals or algae in the water but I'm not sure about the algae bit! I'm worried that it could be algae and I can't shock the new plaster.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
