    Thanks. Yes there has been issues in the past during the previous owners. Now I just have to figure out if I want to tackle this myself.

    Tile and grout/caulking apart

    Need help with trying to fix an issue where my flexible tile is needing some repair. We just bought the house so we are new pool owners. It looks like repairs have been performed in this area in the past. The previous owners are not willing to provide help (karma). What should I use to fix this...

    So...... The pool is looking better and better each day. I'm still Slamming because it's not exactly clear yet. My CYA has been dropping slowly due to vacuuming a little to waste everyday and adding in new water that is double filtered! See my new filter: I made b(no no more added iron!) I've...

    While I’m still Slamming should I still not test and adjust PH, Calcium, Alkalinity? The water is still cloudy and has small piles of cloudy stuff.

    Yes. The filters I’m talking about are the house filters that filter the water coming in from well. I have turned them back on. Hopefully this sloves the rusty water.

    There's no markings on it and Still waiting for return phone call. It's not to transparent. Pretty sure it's for filtering metals. The neigborhood (I just learned) is full of iron wells!

    Will do. The sock does catch some rust color. Maybe with the polyfill and the sock we'll catch more. I'll keep SLAMing. And turn those filters back on to our well water. In researching online I have a water softener and some other big filter.

    Thanks. I do have a sock on my skimmer basket. I'll get some poly-fill also. I do have water softener (salt bin) and another big canister looking filter. Not sure what it is. Waiting on a call from the company who installed. Earlier on I emptied 40% of the pool and refilled with our well water...

    Thanks. Following Slam process. Should I not vacuum up the dead algae piles that I see? Should I use my pool cleaner (Dolphin Triton PS)? Should I brush more than once daily? Pool is getting greener and darker than when I started.

    Thanks for your response. I am a first time pool owner. I did see all of the chemisty, however I thought I saw somewhere (When slamming which is what I'm doing for the last week) that I don't need to worry about other levels until pool is clear. Should I start making sure all other levels are...

    Pool's getting to look like a pond! Am I correct to ignore all levels except FC, CC and CYA till pool is clear? I vacuum to wate everyday, fill pool with more water, test for FC and CC (.5 or less) and brush. I have a good filter with zeoSand. Should I backwash and rinse the filter everyday? I...
