Alright good people...here is where I left you last, incase anyone may have forgotten:
SwampClean 2015 - opening the pool!!
We have gone since then with a perfectly clear blue pool and I have been maintaining the levels pretty closely without any dramatic drops....but we seem to have an odor issue and have been ever since I got it cleaned. First, my current readings:
CC 0 (MAYBE 0.5)
TC 5 (maybe 5.5)
Now, when we last left off from the SwampClean thread, the water was clear but I was getting some sediment that would settle to the bottom of the liner. I will let you know that to this day...I am still getting that. and if I do not vacuum every few days, the sediment will turn to a dark brown...as where initially it is almost beach white in color. My assumption is that this has been dead algae that is making it past the filter and being blown back into the pool and re-settling to the bottom of the pool. I have not been able to get a good enough picture to post so you will just have to picture it from the description.
For whatever reason, I have not been able to rid the pool of this minor issue...but, could it be the cause of a bigger one? The water has an odor to it. 7 of us swim in it...2 can't smell it at all...2 can smell it but its very faint...and 3 have stopped swimming in it because they think the smell is so bad. it is similar to rotten eggs!
Mean while, the water is clear and the numbers have stayed consistently good. Nothing has been put in the pool beyond the shock and the bleach mentioned in the SwampClean thread...and CYA.
Is there anything you can think of that would be causing this smell? I hate to have half the family avoid the pool because of the oder. Surely there is a way to fix this?
