So this is my second year of being a homeowner with a saltwater pool (17,000 gallons). Last year had it's own challenges with a very wet spring and finding out I didn't have proper drainage which caused a floating pool liner...coupled with a unreliable pool service. Now this year I have a new pool guy and I'm on day 6 after he opened it and while it's lighter--it is still very green--see pic.
Here's what has been done thus far:
Day 1: Pool opened by a "professional" with a couple pounds of shock and a treatment of algacide added. Was told PH levels and salt were in line. Turned on filter.
Day 2, 3, 4: Filter continued to run 24/7
Day 5: Had water tested at local pool store and advised to add two shock packs, 28 ounces of Algacide, and two 40lb bags of salt. Also brushed pool during this.
Day 6: Brushed pool and added another shock pack.
Filter has been running constantly and shallow end is in slightly better shape than deep end (can't see bottom at all on deep end).
Any advice is much appreciated.
