I bought a house with a pool, and frankly, I am losing the battle.
Berries from two trees are dropping in the water, and staining the pool. I saw some stains earlier, but could not figure out what they were. Today it was apparent. I tried rubbing trichlor tabs on the stains previously, and it did not touch them.
The spa drains down, and is exposing the blue plaster. The plaster is turning white. The check valve must be bad. I also don't understand by the pump system doesn't automatically put some water in the spa when it runs.
The CYA is over 250, and I can't SLAM the pool. Algae is growing on the bottom and sides.
I have two leaks in the pump area, one at the heater and one at the inlet to the booster pump.
The Polaris 280 wheel gears stripped, and it no longer runs.
It's getting depressing, especially when I see stains that won't come out, and plaster bleaching out. I don't know what to do.
