    Can't Clean The Scum Line On Fibreglass Stairs/Swim Up Spa

    Thanks, I have used the Magic Eraser in the past but even it doesn't get the dirty waterline on the fibreglass steps and spa 100% clean. Thought maybe there would be something better. I keep my inground (18x36 vinyl ) spotless and the chemistry balanced, we did have a party on the weekend that...

    Can't Clean The Scum Line On Fibreglass Stairs/Swim Up Spa

    Hello all, I don't think I had this issue 10 years ago when I had my pool installed, maybe it's an age thing? :) But I can't get rid of the scum (suntan lotion or whatever) line on my white 8' fibreglass stairs and my white fibreglass 4 seater Swim Up Spa. I have tried every bathroom/kitchen...

    First Opening With Taylor Kit

    Another question if I may, I opened my pool early to prevent the water from turning green. If it's still cold outside 50 degrees and my water is still cold, how often do I need to run my pump? I have been running it for 4 hours every 2 or 3 days (instead of 6 to 8 hours a day) but wonder if...

    First Opening With Taylor Kit

    Hello all, This is my first year opening my 18,500 gallon in ground saltwater pool with my Taylor kit. Water is still cold here in Canada but it's clear.

    First Test With New Taylor Kit......Terrible

    If the FC is 1ppm with the test kit and (nothing on the strip) I cannot see if it drops more than 1ppm overnight, correct? Looks like the generator is doing it's thing again, when I have built up the FC I can do the OCLT agreed?, I have added some Stabilizer also.

    First Test With New Taylor Kit......Terrible

    Hello all, I have been using strips and the pool shop to check my chemistry for 11 years. Splurged on a test kit and timing could not be better/worse. I have a 24,000 gallon SWG, vinyl pool, using my new test kit I was shocked at my results. Just a couple days ago my test strip showed plenty...

    Water Nice And Clear But..........

    I may have not waited long enough for the vitamin C to do it's thing and started scrubbing. I'll do as suggested to a "T" after work today an let the sock sit without scrubbing.

    No Bubbles Through Stairs and Spa Jets

    If anyone was following this, I fixed my issue. I was told that there are little spacers or gaskets on the spa jets and if one fell off or was removed it would stop all jets from blowing bubbles. So I took each jet out and did not see any gaskets or spacers, put the jets back in carefully and...

    Water Nice And Clear But..........

    Ok I hope you have heard some stupid things around here but this might take the cake. Last night I scrubbed off what I thought was algae on my fiberglass swim up spa with steel wool. Today the alleged algae was much worse but just in the spa area, my fiberglass stairs were fine. I believe what I...
