Hey guys and gals, been a long time since i last needed your help. This year after pulling the cover after the harsh socal winters in the high desert. Kiddding. I have been fighting it on the weekends when i can get to it.
I have what looks like moss? floating on the surface. If you try to pick it up its slimmy and breaks into a millions parts and is gone again. The skimmer sucks it up and spits it right out of my intex sand filter. When i went to the LPS they told me "good luck!" because of the abnormaley high humidity all of the pools are experiancing a bloom of this strange stuff. o_0?
I shocked my 15' AGP with 3 times the normal rate, run the filter almost constantly, backwashing every few hours to keep it moving at optimal. Nothing except skimming with the flat net helps at all. Water is quick to green even with CYA at the right levels.
I have never needed an expensive pool chem kit but it seems about time. I suspect high phos?
1. Strange mossy green algee clumps
2. Super Cloudy, unable even with the water clarifier to get it clear again.
