We have a 12,000 gallon, oval shaped, above ground pool with a salt water generator. We moved into this house last year and have yet to have a crystal clear pool. After trying everything, (and spending thousands) we're now going to try the BBB method - problem is, all our levels seems to be right when I test everything - yet the pool remains green. Can anyone suggest what we can do?
A little quick backstory- last week the pool was clear, but with a layer of algae on the floor. We had the filter off for a day or so, so obviously it settled out. The filter was off because we were in the process of emptying the sand tank and refilling it with new sand. During the process, we found the center column was cracked, which was most likely causing our problems for the past year. It was replaced, new sand was put in, and once we turned the pool on, it must have kicked up all that algae and now the water is a swamp! I brought the water to the local pool store to be tested, and they said all the numbers I had found were right - the levels are all correct. I added algaecide, but that has not done anything. I turned the filter off yesterday to try to let it settle, figuring I'd vacuum it out once it settles, but nothing has happened in 24 hours.
I will take any and all suggestions! Thank you!
