    The spa light niche. But really, all over the pool. Now that I've got my CSI (if I remember that acronym correctly) slightly negative, I'm getting chunks of calcium and calcium in my robot, calcium "sand" in my filter, and more on the bottom of my pool.

    ok. As promised! still slightly cloudy from the one last belch of DE from the old filter. New Quad DE is in and clearing things up as we speak (or read in this case). I'm pretty stoked.

    Thanks! I'm surprised anyone read that tome, no less gave me some helpful info!! :-) Yes, I've been through the pool school and ABCs; I'm ok with some tests to see how much of it stuck, and how much was burned off by UV exposure :-). Given that, I remain curious that Spas are OK with a wider...
