Hi I have a 15'x 42" intex pool. Last year we had a smaller one and same issues. It's always going green. I check my water daily with the test strips which check ph levels, chlorine, alk and stabalizer. I keep the chlorine on the higher side as well and shock the pool weekly. Yet no matter what I do the pool goes green. The pumps that come with these pools are small so I upgraded to a larger pump. For the past 2 weeks I've been treating the pool, shocking it, sweeping it etc. it's finally clear yet when I brush the bottom there's are green cloud in the water and also every time I clean the filter (ever few hours) it's green. This seems to happen then within a day or so we're back to green. .
what is the problem? Why is my pool always going green, were at the point of getting ride of it for the $$ were spending and not being able to use it. Is it the heat? The tree hanging over? Me? I just don't understand this is always happening. We just want to enjoy a pool.
