I had my pool built just about a year ago, and just reopened it to find the entire thing covered in Calcium Deposits!!! I'm kind of freaking out after reading a few posts on here about having to acid wash or sand the pool in order to get rid of them. The guy who closed and opened my pool though insists that it's a normal thing, especially for new pools and that just keeping the pH in check and brushing will take care of it.
I'm hoping he's right, but some advice from some of the people on here sure would help calm me down. I have noticed with daily brushing over the last 2 days that the visible deposits are decreasing drammatically, however the surface still feels very rough...almost like sandpaper, whereas before the finish was as smooth as silk which is one of the things I loved about my pool!
Will these deposits go away with pH control and daily brushing? What is the most likely cause of the deposits? Is it something that my pool guy did or didn't do on closing?
Thanks for all the help!! I've learned so much reading through this site the last few weeks!!
