Hi everybody,

Anyone living on Agua Nueva who has a swimming pool will understand what I mean regarding this problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions to alleviate the problems concerning the alkali in the water. I have tried increasing the amount of chlorine, which does seam to help a little, although each time I introduce more water into the pool, the problem with the crystals on the bottom and sides of the pool gets worse. When I brush the crystals off, they settle on the bottom and around the edges and need to be vacuumed and that of course starts the process again. There is a constant line of calcium (or something) around the waterline which has to be cleaned off daily or it becomes really hard and difficult to handle.

I have been told that the problem is gypsum in the water but I have no real confirmation of this. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Many thanks
