    Any other R/O companies in the San Diego area?

    Post split from http://www.troublefreepool.com/threads/21658-Pool-Services-Technologies-Inc Zea3
    Hi folks. This is my first post. I had PST purify my pool last year with excellent results. I did so before starting to maintain my pool and letting the pool guy go. PST noticed a very high CYA prior to filtering and returned the measurement back to an ideal 35-40. Unfortunately, the pool guy I let go dumped a bunch of conditioner he had already sold me into the pool before he discontinued service. My bad, I should have let him go first. Well, the reading has been off the chart for a year. I fought algae last summer and also through the cool months, but now nothing phases it (FC up to 40). So, I'd like to have PST back, but they seem extremely busy. Should I drain, or should I look for another company? I couldn't find anyone else in San Diego. BTW, you might have heard about the drought

    I think you're stuck. They won't do R/O on an algae-clogged pool. It would overwhelm the membrane/filters.

    I'd call your water company's customer service line. They might have a program to waive the limits or the tiered rates for a pool fillup. At least they'd know in advance and maybe not install a flow restrictor since it would be a one-time thing.
    16K freeform gunite with spa; Pentair 4000 DE filter; Century Whisperflow 1 HP; Pentair Minimax heater.
    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Agreed,

    You cannot put Algae through a membrane, it simply won't work.
