I posted in the welcome forum a little background, but as you've probably guessed from the title of this thread, my pool is in VERY rough shape.
I went to Leslie's last week (hey, I didn't know better!) and $200+ later walked out with their Algae Free Guarantee course of treatment. I followed all of their instructions to the tee.... Still green.
We decided it was my filter, so we scheduled a cleaning. The algae had caked on so badly, it caused the spines of all seven of my grids to buckle! So now I have 7 new algae free grids and a clean filter. The pool guy suggested I put my pump to "re-circulate" to keep the filter clean. This is where it's at now.
That day (two days ago), I went back to Leslie's to test my water and try their algae free course again. (Again, I didn't know better!)
I'm finished with the last chlorine portion of their course of treatment, but my pool is still green.
Should I add liquid concentrated laundry bleach to the pool until it clears up before adding their Clear Aid?
I figured I'd post, binge on "pool school" and get any advice while I wait for my test kit, vacuum hose, and roller vacuum head arriving Saturday (gotta love Amazon)!
Headed to the full site to post pics! Thanks for your help!!!
You know, green used to be my favorite color...
