Hi, I'm a new pool owner and still learning.
Over the last month I've noticed that small white flakes accumulate around my returns, more or less every time I run the pump.
Initially I didn't notice any other problems in the pool, and the water has always been clear, but now I see that more of these small, soft white flakes are accumulating around the pool floor. Seems like a calcium hardness issue. All these flakes brush away easily, by the way.
All measurements taken with TFT-100.
Using Pool Math, it looks like my CSI is out of range, my CYA is way too low, and my pH is too high. My question: Where do I start making adjustments? Do I begin with stabilizer to increase CYA? Do I start with pH? Both at the same time?
