      Oh OK. So as far as scale, you're meaning the bit above the waterline? I just flick that off with my fingernail now and then, and/or use...

      unlikely that 400 ppm CH would be problematic. If there's any sign of scale, take a look at your CSI number in pool math. Let me know...

      If you're ever thinking about exchanging the water, that's a good time to do an ascorbic acid treatment to the pool. You may find you...

      If the liner was uncovered and you left acid on it without rinsing, you might see a mark afterwards. Provided it's diluted, and further...

      Mine comes in via the added salt. I learned by getting distracted and not brushing the salt around one time. It was easy enough to...

      Thanks everyone! Without getting into very particular details, I run my pump at 25gpm 5 days a week long enough for a complete filtering...

      Good to know. My pool builder made it sound like I needed to time my pump run time for a complete turnover.

      Keep in mind that there's really no arbitrary "turnover" requirement. You really only need to run the pump long enough that you get a...

      I make a solution of muriatic (hydrochloric) acid at 4 parts water and 1 part 32% hydrochloric acid. I put that in a squeeze bottle, and...
