I wrote here a few weeks ago about a cloudy pool. Its cleared mostly- until i put in the aquabot!
Anyway, i saw today that a number of patches are appearing in the floor and on the walls- they kind of look like shadows but are actually stains. I realised one of the issues for cloudiness was because my housemate and i had stupidly added bicarb and calcium sulfate (??) within moments of each other. Is the calcium causing this issue with the staining?
I plan to re plaster come spring anyway but was wondering if the chemicals/chemistry of the pool is doing this to plaster what is it doing to the kids that swim in it?!
I also bought the Taylor k2006c dpd kit thingy and i cant use it! It wont give me readings for chlorine (i know this is high anyway) and Total Alkalinity, i am going to have to take a sample to the pool store again. The water just doesn't go to red like its supposed to, i added the extra neutralizer because of high chlorine but i was just adding hundreds of drops with it not changing!
I never was any good at chemistry
