My pool has never been clear since the moment I added any chemical to it. I have slammed for weeks at a time to no avail, I have passed OCLT but alas it is not meant to be.
First off my pool is green but that is due to metals in the water I suspect as when I use a metal sequestrant the pool will become blue but it seems each time I do it it works less. Last time the blue (still cloudy) worked for about 2 days.
I would like to focus on getting the pool clear even if it will have a green tint. (I can see the bottom but not very well) I went to my parents house over the weekend and there pool is filled with leaves and the pool water was clear and blue and all they do is add algaecide and shock and other chemicals from the pool store. I am considering draining all the water and getting filled with pool water but it is a semi inground and the backfill material hasnt had proper time to compact.
Here are my numbers from my tf100 test kit
(yes fc is high, I was out of town and had the filter and SWG running the whole weekend)
CYA 20 (low yes) ran out of stabilizer, im going to the store today
I try to vaccuum the pool twice weekly but most of the time I feel like im wasting my time as the pool has nothing in it.
I thought maybe it was channelled sand so I spent yesterday opening up the filter and checking that. (not channelled) than I cleaned out the sand since I had the top off doing the hose method (did seem very dirty).
This is my first year owning a pool. Is there some chemicals I can get from the store that will aid in clarification. Im losing my mind. I feel like ive done all the things asked of for a good pool owner using the TFPC and I just want 1 day of sparkling water. Please help.
