    Calcium Test Problems

    Every so often for the calcium test, I put in the 10 drops, then 3 drops of the blue liquid and the water becomes a light pink color. Not the usual dark pink. If it does this, no matter how many drops I add, it never turns blue. Is it something I am doing?

    Brushing the Pool

    Do I just need to brush the walls weekly and not the floor? Seems like the polaris and its tail do a good job on the floor. Thanks!

    Drainage Problem After Rain.

    We had our first big rain since the pool was built. Gutters probably accounted for much of this water. Best course of action would be to install a drain line for the gutters and reroute the water? The slope of the yard goes down to the pool. Hence the Raised Beam Wall.

    Rained after my deck pour

    Well it rained about 4 hours after the concrete was poured. Runoff from the roof (i should have gotten gutters) left big impressions and exposed some aggregate. The rest of the deck is in decent shape but variations in the top coat exists. They tried their best to keep up with it, but told my...
