    green stains

    so there is no prevention? I did not have this issue before I replastered the pool.

    green stains

    here is an underwater pic. The vitamin C tablet removed the stain! what would be the best product to clear the entire area? some form of solid acid I guess?

    green stains

    put a tablet on it- didn't do anything. What else could it be?

    green stains

    it's hard to see in the pic- but there is a band of green along the bottom of the wall. Brushing and slamming did not help. Any tips?

    pH too high

    the pool was re-plastered about 3 months ago. Since then the pH is constantly running high (8+). I keep adding acid- it goes down for a day or two and then back up. Any tips? CYA=40 TA=80 CH=325 FC=2

    how to locate a leak in return lines

    pool loses about half an inch a day. I have had a pressure test done and return lines do not hold pressure. Local companies charge about $500 to locate the leak electronically (repairs not included), which is just absurd. Do you know of any DIY ideas?

    how to block Polaris wall outlet for pressure testing?

    is this what you are referring to? https://www.homedepot.com/p/1-1-4-in-x-1-1-2-in-Rubber-Test-Ball-Plug-270016/100130312

    how to block Polaris wall outlet for pressure testing?

    problem is, the threaded universal wall fitting is buried in the pool wall- so I only have access to the quick-disconnect end. Basically, I need something like this: https://www.poolzoom.com/eyeball-fitting.html with no hole. I tried filling the hole with putty, but the whole eyeball pops out...

    white particles in the hot tub

    I didn't measure the calcium prior. I will do that next time Reading about the CSI, I realize there is another factor here: temperature. I have been keeping higher temperatures than I used to. That combined with a high pH may have been the curlpit (the ozonator is just a coincidence)

    white particles in the hot tub

    I misunderstood your question- I just flushed the water 6 weeks ago. No ahhsome

    white particles in the hot tub

    thanks all. Is Ahh-some effective for calcium scale? (assuming that's what I am dealing with here)

    white particles in the hot tub

    I used a whirpool cleaner product a year or two ago (had to remove the filter and all that). Did not see any scaling come loose

    white particles in the hot tub

    old cell is gone so not sure how it would get in? high calcium has not been an issue before. The current calcium level is very low, which makes me think something is solidifying all the water calcium. also the pH has been on the high side lately.

    white particles in the hot tub

    fiber glass portable spa. I'd say flakes with some thickness. Didn't cut any pipes- there was an old ozone generator already. just replaced it
