I have a friend who asked me to help her. She has been pool stored and the last I heard she had green foam shooting out of her jets. She is/was a puck user. She has a plaster pool and I am not familiar with those.
What are the main things I need to know to help her get started? She has a test kit, she said it it the one recommended here so I am thinking she has the small Taylor one. She didn't know the number when I talked to her last night. I will verify with her.
Money is very tight and I need to get her going as cheap as possible. I told her to gather information on her equipment, pool size, ect. And to bring her test kit so I can verify it and show her how to use it. The CYA is going to be the big issue. I assume it is through the roof I don't know if I can convince her to do a partial drain or not.
Also, she said the pool store said she has metals and have been selling her stuff for that. I have no idea how to deal with this. I have never used any of that stuff.
She is coming over on Monday, her mom doesn't allow anyone to come to their home so this is a little difficult.
I need some research on all of this any good links pointing me in the right direction on plaster, metals any other things I need to be aware of?
I also sent her the big links on chemistry, testing etc. so she can get started reading.
