    Help - black agae or copper stains

    I appreciate your help! I may start with just a foot or so to see if how the chlorine bath works out. If it works well will take it down a bit further. Thanks again!

    Help - black agae or copper stains

    We are North of Dallas (Frisco/Plano) area and have had plenty of rain for sure. While the majority of it would only require a foot of water or so (pool is roughly 4 feet deep) my fear is that without a complete drain there would be no way to get it all. I would rather have that fear of course...

    Help - black agae or copper stains

    Ok. Quick update as my pool is finally back to clear water and all my numbers are in line. Confirmed that I am not dealing with copper and it is black mold. I can scrub areas and even hit them with liquid chlorine as they are heaviest just below the water line so pouring it right there hits the...

    Help - black agae or copper stains

    Sorry for the delay again. Had more crazy storms and heavy rain and another day of overflow into the pool which I am still clearing to get back to normal. I have a drainage issue that needs to be resolved this summer. I typically add the chlorine under the waterfalls so that it gets disperesed...

    Help - black agae or copper stains

    The water is crystal clear so must be the photo. No green water fortunately. I did test way to soon after I added liquid chlorine so that is the reason it is so high. I have had to take a few days to get it clear again from the recent storms and overflow into my pool of dirt. Water was brown a...

    Help - black agae or copper stains

    The pool is roughly 10 years old. I don't have any dry acid but can definitely get some. Can you suggest a particular brand and place to buy? I have never used it before. Will also get the TA and PH up right away. Thank you!

    Help - black agae or copper stains

    Hello everyone. I hope you can give me some ideas on what to do next. I have been battling what I believe is black algae as it somewhat comes off when I scrub it (green particles come off) but a black stain is left. I have rubbed chlorine pucks on these stains and they don't seem to want to go...

    Newbie - First test results

    Wow, okay, learning so much already. Thank you everyone above who chimed in. So my Shock Power Powder Plus from Leslies is the Cal-hypo shock which would explain why my CH is as high as it is and the calcium scale on our pool.. Pool math recommended draining 11% of my pool to get the CH down. I...

    Thank you and will do. Poolmath told me a little more than 2 cups of acid which I put in last night. We then got a few inches of rain so heading back out this morning to check on the PH again and will adjust as needed.

    Newbie - First test results

    I just ran all the tests with my new TF-100 and below are the results. I want to preface this with that fact I was pretty sure my chlorine would be low as I haven't added any in about a 2 weeks as I didn't want to keep throwing money down the drain if other things were off. Also, I use a solar...

    Another hello from Dallas! Newbie

    Hello and first time poster for me. Just received my TF100 Test Kit and plan on spending the weekend figuring out what to do with it all. I was surprised at how much it came with and quickly realizing I have a lot to learn which I am excited to do. I am sure it is in the directions or somewhere...
