An excess of copper: with our technology, this can only come about through faulty installation, programming or control. If we find there are yellowy-green or bluish stains at the joints of the gresite or in the Liner, there could be an excess of copper in the water – or there has been an increase in pH and temperature, which was not checked.

Solution:

1.- The first thing we need to do is measure the copper in the water several times, and at different locations. If there is copper, we need to detect and correct the problem. This could be due to:
- Faulty installation: Cables changed (OXY - ION)
- Incorrect programming: Too many minutes each day
2.- Turn off the copper channel by programming it (refer to instruction manual)
3.- Reduce the copper in the pool. This can be done in two ways:
- Renovate part of the pool, wash out, etc. Check and carry out daily measurements. The copper will gradually disappear.
- Use a metal flocculant or special copper remover.

A level of copper up to 2 ppm is not harmful to health, but can cause stains.
