I have a 5300 gal. above ground pool. Cartridge filter. We live in North Carolina. Hot and sunny!!
It was put up about 2 months ago. We filled it (ugh). Played in it for a few weeks. We were using chlorine pucks. It got green then it got very green. We started adding algicide etc...
About a week ago a neighbor told us about this site. We ordered the TF100, a new cartridge filter system. Both came today but we had already started with the bleach right away.
Test results today:
CYA--0 very clear all the way to the top.
Water looks milky/ cloudy filter changed daily and is red/brownish. I think we are at the point where we just filter 24/7 until it clears up and also add stabilizer to bring up the CYA checking the chlorine levels and adding daily as needed. Does this seem right?
