    SAND in the POOL or Calcium deposits

    i would doubt if it was plaster. Is it the same colour as your pool surface ? lack of vacuuming generally doesnt cause the plaster to fall off

    Asthma and Chlorinated Pools

    Which lights for my pool?

    if you are getting oasis nova falls - my suggestion would be to look at their savi system use a SaVI source LED fibre iluminator instead of the noisy halide ones you can then match the colour change up in the pool with the savi note/ savi melody light system we have sold around 300+ of these...

    High CYA Levels, Shocking, Yellow/Mustard Algae

    Fotunatley i have been involved with this pool since its construction a few years ago, unnfotunatly in the lighting side only, and not the filtration/hydraulics, which is seriously lacking in a bit of common sense..... much like the future maintenance by a service company. The valet had been to...

    High CYA Levels, Shocking, Yellow/Mustard Algae

    We often see case's of mustard algae over the summer here, and have a method that has always fixed As mentioned straight copper based alagecides and phosphate removers as killers are a waste of time for a quick clear, and based on the high levels of chlorine required to kill this persistent...

    Phosphates are the food stuff of algae

    Does low speed filter better than hi speed?

    The slower the water goes through a sandfilter the better, this is part of the reason why commercial tanks are so big (not just fiction losses and bigger pumps/pools) but their recommended flow rate is a lot slower than a domestic pool (gpm/squarefoot filter)
