    Acid Wash problem

    I'm absolutely convinced it's from the companies sump pump. They weren't there before the acid wash then BAM there after they finished job, as in immediately there. Definitely not spalling.

    Adding the Borax

    Started the adding of MA to lower TA yesterday, should meet my goal today. Aerating with scuppers on. Looks good so far, last test TA 150...added more MA will test in the morning. I'm so upset about the Dang CH. K2006 CYA test result is 90. I'm using the plethora of Borax for household chores...

    Adding the Borax

    Oh my word!!! The difference in readings for Alkalinity and CH between the colorq and my newly purchased K2006 is disturbing!! I'd been going by the colorq numbers and adding Calcium Chloride 😩 K2006 said CH was 500 compared to colorq 137. K2006 said TA was 225; colorq 56!! Just ugh ugh ugh

    Adding the Borax

    Hello!! I have 11 boxes of Borax and as always a ton of MA, want to try and have less fluctuation with my Ph. In what order should I attempt adjusting the chemicals? Should I focus on raising CH first? Get TA up a tad first? Or can I just add the Borax now and work on the others, especially Ph...

    Acknowledgement they messed up and offer to refund fully or partly would be nice.

    Acid Wash problem

    That's what I believe as well!! But to prove it is their fault is the issue I'm having right now.

    Acid Wash problem

    I've already paid these people and other than a refund of some sort I don't know what else they could offer that would be a good resolution from them. But proving this was from their techs negligence and not something we did to our pool before or after their work is proving to be problematic...

    Acid Wash problem

    6.5 years old. Brand new pool we had built. I dont use trichlor tablets as it's a SWG pool. It's only the ring that is indented/worn away, not the entire surface within the circle. Which makes me believe the acid wasn't neutralized quickly enough and was eating around the feet of the pump...

    Acid Wash problem

    Had an acid wash done professionally this past Thursday, having let the Ph fluctuate and rise too high over the past couple years. After they finished I see these two perfect circles in the deep end. I imagine the pump or some other piece of equipment they used to pull out the muriatic...
