So I have been reading a ton here on the boards this week and have come across many threads about stains. My pool has a few that I know of that appear to be in quarter size imperfections in the surface. I would guess that there are about 4-5 of them that wont brush out. Nothing major though.
Well recently I had an algae breakout and shocked my pool. I ended up jacking the FC up to 40 which it is down to 22 now. My PH at the beginning of all of this was at 8.2 as well. Upon my reading, it looks like this had made me a prime candidate for stains. Is this true?
Looking at the pool now I think there are slightly tinted streaks on the bottom. I am not sure if they are really there or have I just been reading too much about stains and now my mind is playing games with me. It is hard to tell since I do not get home until dark. I will look for sure this weekend. The finish on our pool makes it difficult to tell as well since it has misc. blue dots in the marcite. Not sure what they call this finish either. Anyway, it is mostly white.
Any thoughts or suggestions here? Also, does anyone know what they call this finish just so I know for future reference?
