Please help me, I filled my pool 3 weeks ago and as soon as we added chlorine (bleach) the pool turned green/yellowish and it has not dissipated. Some days i can see the pool floor quite clearly other days (like today) the water is very opaque. The pool looks like a greenish tub of bleach. Things I have tried:
In no particular order
-I raised the FC to shock level for two days and passed OCLT so I stopped thinking that algae wasnt an issue
-I poured "metal out" from the pool store into the pool and that made the water blue for 1 or 2 days but as soon as the next bleach addition was poured into the pool, the pool turned green again.
Here are my numbers from just a moment ago
CH (turned purple)
I havent even hooked up my salt generator or added salt because it seems im doomed to a green pool forever. My family says that I need to go to the pool store and buy their products and take their advice and honestly im considering it. Maybe the troublefree way doesnt work for everyone.
My pool pump reads about 12 psi on high setting and on low setting it reads very low like maybe even 0 but there is still good circulation on low and plenty of water coming out of my return.
I just ordered proteams metal magic from amazon and will give that a try as the pool stores metal out is the only thing that has given me some hope in the last few weeks.
