I am very new at pool chemistry. And I have an issue, I could use some expert help with.
I finally got my Taylor-2006 test kit. (It is very cool by the way.)
I was going to do my morning therapy and when I rolled the solar cover off the pool I noticed something on the bottom of the pool!
It is gathering on the bottom of the pool along the seams and around the bottom edge of the pool, and on the steps.
We vacuumed the pool and backwashed it. Then topped off with new water. Tested, put appropriate amount of bleach and borax called for.
Ran the filter all night and this morning the pool had the same stuff on the bottom of the pool. Did everything again except backwash.
The pool looked good not cloudy, But.... 4 hrs later I went to test the pool again and that stuff was back on the bottom along the seams etc.
The pool water is clear and I can see the bottom of the pool well. No odor, But... what is that?!
This is an indoor pool not exposed to the elements, no debris.
These are my #s :
pool 80 degrees
Can someone tell me what that is in the pool?
And what I need to do to get rid of it? Do I need to Slam?
I have read so much and I am getting confused on what to do.
