Darn, darn, darn.
After dropping water treatment service and following the advice here the water has stayed clear
and swimable for 2 months, and now...
-- it's not quite warm enough
@ 76, surface area is 800 SF, solar panels are 600SF. Run time has been about 3 hours/day.
Increased run time to 8 hrs/day and that has helped, but hard to tell as outside is toasty now.
She loves the 88F temps.
I'm guessing need to add about 200SF solar, sound about right? so it's a 1:1 ratio.
-- pool plaster and tile not looking nice
Tile had hard hard while deposits on them, I thought they were just calcium, but after switching
and only using shock, not tabs, it is slowly weakening, so guessing it was a water conditioner
Only recommendations have been:
glass blast the tile, or replace the tile
Pool plaster is starting to lift around the drains and has a horrible moddled and looking at a plaster redo
this fall. I presume we'ld be best advised to use one with small pebbles in it, but will that create more issues for a robot cleaner?
-- we need a handrail now for the stairs
Sounds deceptively simple. I would expect some plaster/concrete mounting issues.
