Hey gang! This time last year with the help of TFP I had a crystal clear pool after a rough installation that included a mud slide. You may remember my dash to SLAM before our July 4th party with only a week to do so, but we did it! During the year, the concrete under a section of our pool collapsed, so the pool installer had to remove the liner, repair, and this week put in a new liner. Part of that install included delivery of 23,000 gallons of water by truck. The truck filled up at the local grocery store using their fire hydrant.
So, the water came in green and a little murky. Now we have full blown pollen season going on here, so I figured maybe enough pollen and **** had blown into the empty pool while installing the liner that turned the water greenish, and a SLAM was in order. I haven't put my salt or CYA into the pool yet, so for a test, I balanced my pH and TA (7.2 and 70), and added bleach for a FC of 10. I tested at 8:00pm last night and had a positive FC of 10 and a CC of maybe .5.
This morning, the water is clear as I can see the deep end drains, but not crystal clear. And it's still greenish. Also, there is a ring around the entire pool that looks like pollen to me. It easily brushes off and dissipates into a cloud. I ran another FC/CC and it is still 10 and 0! So by all accounts I would have passed a SLAM but obviously something isn't right.
Am I dealing with metals? This pool was filled from the exact same source last year and while I had to SLAM due to mud, I never had to add any sequestriants for metal.
Please help me experts. Attached are pictures of the deep end, and the film that's around the pool and on the hose to our cleaner.
