recently built a SWG pool (inground , vinyl, 18000 Gallon, 16X32).
The SWG is from Hayward (Aqurite) with a T15 cell.
I use deepwell water.
Water (pool and deepwell) is clear, but there is a lot of dirt buildup on the floor. Floor feels a bit slippery, when we brush it seems better.
Perhaps this is also caused by the dirt around the pool (deck is not done yet) that gets blown in.
I am trying to understand the best way to maintain it.
I just tested the values with a strip and these are not good:
pH is 8.4 (or higher)
TA is 240
ppm Stabilizer is 50-100
So only the last value seems at the right level.
Reading the pool school it seems that the TA is too high and should be lowered. This is the thing that seems important to address first
Question is now :
how is this best done?
Not sure whether the deepwell water is the best for the job (but normal water is very expensive here).
The SWG is clogging up with with buildup quickly and I see white scales on the bottom of the pool.
I think this is calcium scaling.
Any suggestion on how to address this?
How can I best lower TA, adding muriatic acid won't do the trick if I am right?
