I have a 18' x 48' Intex pool that was bought for us but my parents when we bought our house last year.I just purchased the TF 100 test kit about two weeks ago. I got it because I can never keep the pool clear, either too much algae or too cloudy.
This past week my pool has been green and not getting better. CYA is 50, and my FC was kept at 20-22.
It's been like this for 5 days now and not getting better.
I got frustrated yesterday because the water has been really warm and dumped 1 gallon of bleach in and brushed and brushed. Cleaned filter and brushed again. (Been doing that all week).
Woke up this morning and most of green is gone but very cloudy.
Tested this morning and FC is at 32ppm and cya still at 50.
I know I can use a better filter than the Intex one and I really want to get one. BUT I am getting my bosses pool and deck in about two weeks that has good pump and filter. So no need to get another one.
First shock (losing battle)
