I built a new customized pool about a year ago and now I am having issues with the surface of the pool becoming rough. I recently checked my pool pH which was found to be 7.8. I did acid wash thrice last year. What could be the reason for such a roughness? What can be done to avoid the roughness?

Check your total alkalinity for starters.

Check your calcium level. Calcium hardness minimum levels should 250 ppm. There's a good chance the calcium is being "pulled" from the plaster and leaving a rough surface.

Avoiding these issues begins prior to the initial filling of the pool upon completion.

The water source to be used should be tested so you be can ready to treat immediately.

Careful monitoring over a 2 week period is critical.

The roughness should be sanded down to smooth and incress calcium to 250 ppm

Hello friend,
Normal pH suggested for pools is 7.4 . If you don’t mind the Chlorine level there will scaling of pools. Rough surface is all about water balance. Regular maintenance and water refilling should be done. Make sure you refill it every 3 months. For more approach any experts in this field. They may help you with know-how on maintenance of pools. Try with Ferrari pools, patios and spas a pool renovation services (http://www.ferraripools.com/pool-service-maintenance/ ). Hope to see your pool prob fixed soon. Do post your status.

I am sure you know this but, when replastering you have to only add calcium, and acid only to balance your fluctuations of ph. ( it will be high always). YOU HAVE TO brush for I believe 1 TO 2 WEEKS everyday straight. No salt or chlorine added.
Also.. A great trick is to put in a extra sweep you might have so it picks up all the fine dust.
( for future THIS IS IMPORTANT.. if you don't brush a pool that has gravel, or sandstone dust.. IT WILL ALWAYS BOND OVER TIME TO THE PLASTER OF YOUR POOL.
(I turn the pool controls to spa drain and brush all the dirt to the drains. Or use a fine mesh net and or will take my clients sweep.. Remove the sweep head and connect it to a my Vacuum head.( If you don't have enough links ( aka. Doesn't reach), I always carry and attach to my own to my clients sweep links and use a few ( good luck)
