    Proper way to Sequester Metals?

    The builder put acid in the stains via a pipe. Sorry for the confusion.

    Proper way to Sequester Metals?

    It’s brass or copper coming from the metal scupper on our bowls that we have. Builder tried acid and a tube on them but it didn’t remove them all. I’m also getting the purple flashing on my CH test which to me kinda confirms it too.

    Proper way to Sequester Metals?

    Thanks for the info. I have a couple of questions. 1) Is this ok to do on a pool surface that is only 3-4 months old? 2) Where is the best place to get AA? 3) Does water temp affect this? In other words can this be done in the winter? Thank you all!

    I just added the salt to our pool today and want to give it about 24-48 hours to mix well with the water before we turn on the SWG Monday for the first time. That being said, currently my CYA is 40 and I am looking to go to 70 as my target. Our PB said he didn't add any because its Winter. Does...

    Wire Brush

    Perfect. Good to know, thank you. So any suggestions for what I’m referring to? Possibly run it acidic and brush more? Learn to live with it? Lol

    Wire Brush

    We just had a new pool completed and has been running for about 30 days now. There are area on the finish that seem to have more plaster on them then other areas. I am not sure of this is from the acid wash after the finish was done, or brushing. Ultimately you see more plaster than pebble where...

    Calcium Test w/ TF100

    I haven’t added any salt or borates. That is just what it’s measuring. All water has some salt in it naturally and I’m testing with a calibrated sensor. The pool is outdoors.

    Calcium Test w/ TF100

    It was filled almost 3 weeks ago. FC: 12 CC: 0 PH: 7.7 TA: 70 CH: 390 CYA: 40 Salt: 483 (not switched to SWG yet) Borates: 15 Temp: 78 CSI: +0.1 Chlorine got a little high. I guess too many pucks in the skimmer until we switch over. These look pretty good to me until we switch to SWG. Thoughts?
