  1. Has anyone seen this before!?! My hot tub is less than a year old it's a Dynasty Palm Island II everything works great it has lots of extras like the ozone thing a gecko motor blah blah blah... But after only about 2 months in these little flakes started to appear, I have been a stickler for checking the water chemistry at least 2 times weekly. At first I really thought it was like someone's dead skin that came off 🤢 but it gradually got worse even after shocking, lowering the PH, water changing. We stored it for the winter after about 3 water changes for cleaning and pulled it back out, they
  2. Ok guys, LONG post sorry, Fairly new pool owner, this is the third year for our pool and we just took the cover off last week. (Its not pretty) The first year we were all chlorine, last year we converted to salt so we had some adjusting to get use to that, we did shock the pool before we closed it last year and I guess did not check the PH afterwards and closed it (Amateur pool owners here… Insert facepalm emoji) PH was VERY high when we checked it. SOOO when we took the cover off, got the pump running, we always vacuum first to get everything off the liner, but noticed there was a scale on th
  3. Hi, i am having problems identifying what the white flakes, some upto 5mm, are that have started to appear in my hottub water. I have tried adding bleach to a sample and the flakes are still there then i tried adding vinegar and the flakes are still there. I believe if they are biofilm they would disapear when adding bleach, but would they disolve and disapear if adding vinegar ? Thanks for any advice.
  4. I recently took the old Softub out of the garage and fired it up. it had been sitting for several years. it's working but there are lots of white flakes in the water. I was told they are calcium. Any advice on getting rid of it? should I try to use a pool skimmer? Or drain the tub and refill? thanks gary in vermont
  5. Hello all! I am hoping to get some help/advice for my Hot Spot spa that's ~6 months old. I will cut to the chase early, and then do the explaining at the end as the more experienced may not even need to read my story before making suggestions. My spa has a white, soft coating on the entire shell. It was solid at one point, and would wipe away with just a finger swipe. So I used a towel to wipe the entire shell down. It didn't all go away, so you can now see where some remains. Is this scale/calcium buildup? I am curious to know what exactly it is, so I can then research on my own. I ha
  6. Any help here would be awesome, or lead me in the right direction.... I have attached pics, and want to know if anyone knows what this is and how to get rid of it? I have a FG pool from Leisure Pools, and this started happening after year 1.... no one from the manufacturer is returning my calls or emails, and the sales guys isn't either. The leisure Pools sales guy told us (To sell it), you don't need to do anything... just add salt.... Stupid US for listening to a "Trusted" person... Sorry we are (Were) pool virgins... After all this researching, I might as well go into the pool bus
  7. I have been several times to my pool dealer to test my water this last month, and every time, the CH levels come back different. Like completely different. one day it will be at 180, and next time at 350, and everything in between...When it was at 350, I was told to partially drain my spa and refill. I did not, and I'm glad I didn't because it was down to 200 a few days later, without me doing anything to it... Does the CH levels fluctuate like that or are these tests not accurate at all? I should say, same thing happened with the TA levels. One day it was too high, i didn't do anyth
  8. Hello, I'm a fairly new hot-tub owner, and have found tons of valuable resources on this forum. Now that I have a slightly complicated question, this was quickly my first-choice to seek guidance My tub is 425 gallons (Alps Spas Q-90), last cleaned and refilled on 1/22/17 (sodium bromide + floater + MPS), consistently tested with a Taylor K-2106 kit, and set to 102F. Problem is my measurements today have me really scratching my head. TA dropped, and my CH plummeted. I've been busy so the tub's only seeing 1 or 2 bather-hours a week lately. Here's the last few measurement entries in my log
  9. We tossed our old spa cover and I drained it so I can clean it and replace some parts. After draining, I noticed a 2"-3" wide white band along the water's edge that I think is scale, according to what I'm reading online. I wondered what the best way to remove this would be since it's already drained (some threads here suggest not draining at all, but that ship has sailed). I've done some heavy scrubbing with vinegar, which was kind of effective. I also tried a couple spots with Kaboom cleaner, and that also did some good there. Some of the stuff comes off in patches, while other patches are
