We bought a house last week with a pool and I finally was able to test the water with my TF-100. The pool is crystal clear but it does have a few things I'm worried about. Hopefully you all will be able to help me out.
Living in Texas and the pool getting full sun throughout the day I think the CYA is ok?
The CH is the thing that has me worried. I've done reading in Pool School about high CH and the general thought is to not worry too much about it. Thoughts? There is also some white, salt like, buildup on the stone wall going from the pool to the raised spa. Is this just Calcium buildup? Anything to remove it?
There are also some greenish/brown spots on the stairs and I'm not sure what it is? Hard scrubbing with a pumice stone seemed to remove the spots. Is this the best way to remove? There was also some green stuff on a small step by the spa where the sweeper can't get to. I scrubbed it with the pumice stone too and it came off really easy and created a big green cloud.
I can get some pictures tonight when I get home from work if that will help.
I added 121 oz of 8.25% bleach last night to raise my FC to 7. Not sure what it's at now. I'm going to SLAM this weekend and see if it passes the OCLT.
