    How much should my chlorine level drop a day? And strange yellow spots.

    I took a picture today. My husband has been fertilizing the grass around the pool could it be that?

    Black ring around fiberglass pool

    What can I do to prevent the daily formation of a black ring around my pool. It wipes away easily with a magic eraser. I have a scum star in my skimmer (seems to only collect bugs). My levels are all good. We aren’t wearing a ton of sunscreen but yet it still forms.

    I can pick it up but can’t seem to make it out of the water with it. Perfect little circles clustered together.

    How much should my chlorine level drop a day? And strange yellow spots.

    I do have a sand filter. We also have some exposed areas of dirt around the pool that the grass hasn’t grown all the way in. Sand does get in the pool at times from dirty feet but that vacuums right up. I saw more spots today. They don’t vacuum off but I can brush them with my hand. It is...

    How much should my chlorine level drop a day? And strange yellow spots.

    So I super chlorinated my pool right before going out of town using my SWG (18k gallon salt water fiberglass pool). Then I left It to run for 11 hrs a day at 40%. I was gone 5 days. When I got home yesterday my FC was still 13.5. I turned my chlorine generator to 0% and today it was 11.5 at the...

    High TA with low pH

    So I had to add 7lbs of stabilizer to my pool and I am still learning and missed the step of perfecting TA first. So now my pH is 7.2 and my TA is 110. I’m aerating the pool now and hoping that’ll raise my pH and then I can add MA. Is this the right steps to take? I have a 18,000g fiberglass...

    First timer. Need advice about calcium.

    Well something seems to be degrading it around the skimmer.

    Ok I just realized it was the CYA that lowered my pH. I added 10 more lbs of CH and will recheck in the morning.

    Ok so I added CYA and my number is now 70. Yay! I added about 10lbs of CH and it brought my CH to 150. I want to add more but it also brought my pH down to 7.2 (from 7.6). Should I go ahead and add it and then deal with pH? TA is 100.

    Thanks so much. My FC was 4.5 at night and 4.5 the next morning. I’ve got the calcium and CYA in the way. I can actually already tell my pool deck is suffering from my calcium level being SO low. Glad I found this website!!!

    Hello out there pool world. I have a 18,000 gallon fiberglass pool. At initial start up they added too much salt so our salt levels are still high. It doesn’t bother us swimming but I’m not sure how much it affects our water balance. I received my TF-100 testing kit yesterday. My PH had been...
