Hello to All,
Our pebblesheen finish [Irish-mist] has started to darken on many areas throughout the pool. Combined w the spa, it is about 15.5K chlorine based.
The vendor recommended a no-drain acid wash and said they would do a couple of test places to see how this would work.
I heard on a pool radio talk show w someone having the same problem and also going to have to do a no-drain acid wash for their p-sheen. The host of the show recommended that they use a product called Magic Jacks Magenta. Has anyone heard of this and if so, is this a good recommendation? I went to the hosts website and this product is one of their sponsors.
Finally, during this no drain acid wash, they said it would take 4-7 days, then add soda ash to neutralize the acid. While this acid wash is being performed, I would think flipping the breaker for all the equipment would be good idea to prevent anything from being circulated and frying the heater or pump. Once the acid wash is performed and the soda ash is added, the chemistries tested, they will use the cartridge filtration system to remove the s-ash? I am sure after this the cartridge system will need to be cleaned?
To conclude, does anyone have any other recommendations or experience in this area that I should make sure we do before, during or after this process? Once performed, I will post back the results.
