We just closed on a short sale her in southwest AZ (Yuma) I have never owned a house with a pool and have no clue what I am doing.. We have a pool service coming once a week right now but I know that I should be doing some of the maintenance in between his service days. Also, the plaster has a brownish staining throughout the pool and spa. I have read that this could be metal staining and you can use absorbing acid to get rid if it? Should I try this? Or just have it drained and acid washed? I know I am asking a lot of dumb questions but I also have no idea how to turn on the jets in my spa is there a valve or switch I need to look for somewhere? I looked today and could not get it to work?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated
