i was googling swimming pool forums and this was my one of 2 choices
the other the registration page was disabled.... go figure.
anywho i hope to do some searching to get my pool in usable shape.
it has seen better days. This is the first season we are using it in the last 4-5 years.
After making some structural repairs i filled it and winterized it last fall.
now it's open and trying to get the water clear (it's a little cloudy).
I purchased my folks house so i know the pools history. bulit 1986, IG gunite pool
just adding some notes.......
onizers work by putting copper or silver, or both, into your pool water. They are sanitizers, but not oxidizers. So, you will still have to use an oxidizer, like chlorine or a non-chlorine shock, to shock your pool to remove the buildup of organisms destroyed by the metal sanitizers. Copper and silver will both stain all of the surfaces that they touch - plaster, stone, cement, plastic - if the level of metal in the water gets too high, or if the pH gets too high, or if the Total Alkalinity is too high. In other words, it's very likely that you will experience some metal staining with an ionizer. Also, when the ionizer plates wear out, they have to be replaced. They're not cheap, either
