This is my first post. I tried filling out a profile but the site won't let me on my phone.
Either way, Here is my pool info and question.....
I moved into a house 5 years ago with an old pool (at least 23 years old) and have always had trouble keeping the water clear. Honestly I do not know if my pool is gunite or concrete. If someone could tell me how to know I would appreciate it. The pool is white and has had multiple places where the plaster has come off over the years. When we moved in I hired someone to open the pool. He told me to keep 3 tabs in each skimmer and 3 bags of shock a week and I would be fine. But it has not been fine. It is constantly turning green and we spend more time working on it than swimming.
My main question is what kind of test kit do I need? I have used Aquacheck strips but I think a better kit might be needed. Can someone suggest a good kit to use?
Also, In what order do I test and adjust?
My pool is 18x36 IG Approx. 29k volume in Tennessee.
