Hello Everyone! We just moved into our first house and now also own our first pool. We decided to go the BBB route after reading so much about it on here. So, the water is clear, some black algae dots on bottom of pool, lots of green on the sides, some scaling, lots of staining... The inspector told us we basically need to replace the plaster, but we want to hold off for another year or two. I've brushed the pool, but it still looks the same.
Hayward DE filter
pH - 7.5
FC - 1.6
CC - 0?
TA - 80
CH - 180
CYA - 0? We used the Taylor K-2006 and the dot never disappeared :/ We added 4lbs stabilizer a couple days ago, but not testing it again for another week, right?
OK, now what? Is it safe to swim in? The pool walls/concrete look yucky, but the water is nice and clear. Also, every time I add a new chemical, should I have the pump run for a longer period of time? Right now we have our timer set for about 8-9 hours a day.
Thanks in advance -- this site is so great!
