    Stains after adding salt.... Help.

    Thank you all for the help and input so far. It is a quarts finish. Marbletite sapphire. Left the vitamin c on for a few minutes and no change. I'm 100% the stains were not there before the salt. You can almost make out where the salt hit the pool floor and I started to brush away.

    Stains after adding salt.... Help.

    Tried vitamin c and nothing. Poured acid on the spot using a pvc no change. Poured chlorine using same technique and still nothing. Here are a few pictures of what it looks like. I'm stating to feel like the salt actually damaged the plaster if that's possible.

    Stains after adding salt.... Help.

    PH was 7.8 before adding salt. I've been trying to keep it balanced according to pool math CSI values. Any idea how to correct it?? Will look at links posted. Thank you

    Stains after adding salt.... Help.

    I'll take some. Sun hits the pool most of the day and they are not visible then. I'll try to be home today around sunset see if I can get them.

    Stains after adding salt.... Help.

    Hi all. Pool just got replastered over a month ago. Yesterday I decided to go ahead and add the salt to charge my SWCG. As always I checked here first and found some posts that members had successfully used the Diamond Crystal pool salt from Home Depot. I went and purchased it and added to...

    Considering a Marbleltite surface - anyone have experience with it?

    Hi CubanMike In my opinion the problems are mostly in the hands of the plaster crew and start up procedure used. However I've seen a few really bad looking jobs from different crews using Marbletite. This is my first pool and build so my experience and knowledge is limited but if I was to do...

    Tell me about laminar jets.

    We have a Pentair colorcascade LED bubbler. My 14 month old loves it and I think it's pretty cool too. When the light is on without water flowing it looks a bit funny but not enough to bother me. Already had it replaced once under warranty because somehow the first one got water in the led...

    Resurfacing Splotchy at 3+ Weeks

    I had my pool finished in July last year. It was plastered using the same product (Marbleltite) and I have to say mine looks worse than your. And now discovered a crack in the plaster towards the bottom of the pool. Not sure if it's the product or the crew but I've been extremely...

    New in ground Shotcrete Pool Build in South Florida.

    Hi CC. No sweat. That's what we are here for. From looking at your pictures I see our setups are very different. I'm going to start off by stating again that I'm by no means a pro or a equipment guru but maybe we can try some non-destructive options and see if that works. Here we go. On...

    Reducing CH via lime softening process

    Sure things guys FC. 4 CC. 0 PH. 7.2 - 7.4 TA. 60 CYA. 60 CH. 450 I'm still manually dosing the chlorine because PH still goes up regularly and I know SWG makes PH rise more quickly. As soon as ph stabilizes a bit ill make the switch. Pool is 8 months old. The issue is I'm getting a lot of...

    Reducing CH via lime softening process

    Couldn't find enough info about it at the other forum either. So I'll probably hold off. It's just frustrating because my calcium levels are high (450) and our fill water it's not much better. Getting scale buildup even dosing the pool every other day to keep ph 7.2-7.4. Thanks again for the...

    Wondering if anybody ever attempted it as decried in this thread: http://www.poolforum.com/pf2/showthread.php/16992-Lime-Softening-to-Reduce-Excess-Hardness-Bucket-Test-amp-Treatment-Process I did the test on the bucket as explained there and the CH went from 450 down to 25. I did a...
