I have an outdoor inground ceramic tile pool with SWG.
I had an algae problem so (during SLAMing) I used the pool brush to brush it well (bottom and sides) but now I noticed that I might have caused some damage in the material that sits between the tiles. ( my pool is built with the small white tiles (see at http://www.waxmanceramics.co.uk/details ... -white.htm) but the lines between the tiles look dark, as if there is dirt accumulated.
Its a 2 yr old pool and I had it built from a reputable pool shop where they used good quality materials. I am not sure if my brush is too hard or if I brushed too hard or if this what happens after a while anyway. I did make an effort not to brush too hard, since I wanted to avoid possible damage, so I would be really surprised if this material is so sensitive.
Any experiences with this kind of materials? Emptying the pool to fix it is not high in my list of options at this point, for a few reasons:
1. If it happened once, it will probably happen again but I dont know if there are special materials that are harder.
2. its a 15ft x 30ft, 17.000 gallon pool, which is a lot of water to waste so it will be expensive to refill
3. Its summer time and i want to use it
