This is my first post. I have been fighting with my pool for about 2 months now.
At first I would go to the store and they'd check my numbers, then after hundreds of dollars of supplies, I would end up with some amelioration, but never any cigar.
After a few days, things would go back to where they were. Algicide, chlorine, shock, you name it, I have tried it.
BTW, I live in az, where the temps are wonderful for algea growth.
I switched to chlorine and baking soda for ph.
My ph is ok, but the chlorine does not stay.
My pool is a light milky green.
I add a lot of chlorine. Numbers for ph, and chlorine are ok for about a day, and then free chlorine falls back to 0.
I added more and more chlorine, but I still don't get any results.
the pool is still milky light green, cloudy.
What should I do and where should I start?
