Water Returns and liner scale

Postby daokie » Sun 22 Jul, 2007 17:19

I am a relative new pool owner and have two questions.

1. Is there a specific angle that is best for the to aim the water return nozzles? I have a Barracuda cleaner will that angle effect it's performance?

2. My pool has a liner that is about 5 years old. Because I opened my pool way later than I should have the liner has has brown scale in several places. I can't seem to get it off. What, if anything, can I do about the scale?

Thanks fro Oklahoma.

This depends on your particular pool. The best angle is the one which circulates the water the best. You want to "mix it up" as well as possible.

When you say "scale" do you mean you can feel a buildup of something on the liner, or is it just stained?

Scale on pool limer

Postby Daokie » Sun 29 Jul, 2007 16:01

The scale I'm talking about is really a rusty looking stain that caused because I was not able to open my pool before I had algae and it was there for a few weeks. The water looks and tests great but the liner has these stains that I can't get off with a brush. Is there a chemical tha would help?

Get out your goggles and hold a Vitamin C tablet on the stain. If it goes away, it's metal (iron/copper) and there are treatments to help. If it doesn't, try holding a chlorine puck against the stain. If it works, it's organic and a good shocking would help.
