    white particle on bottom of pool

    Mknauss hit the nail on the head. The cell had built up a considerable amount of calcium on it that I noticed when I opened the pool this year and inspected the cell. The flakes were what I was seeing in the pool at times. Cleaned the cell with diluted muriactic acid and everything appears to...

Beginning and end of season my skimmer baskets and...

    Our plaster has flecks of color and it seems like the white flecks in the plaster are becoming more visibly pronounced. No noticeable impact if brushed but I am noticing white particles occasionally on the bottom of the pool. Not a lot of them. Any ideas what this might be? All pool testing...

    Pool filter basket discoloration

    Any idea what could be causing the discoloration of my pool filter basket? 3 year old pool. Never had any significant issues. Water almost always looks clear. No out of whack testing this year (or any year for that matter). Thx.
