I removed phosphates with a remover recommended by pool store.After the pool ran for 48 hours I cleaned my cartridge filter with Kleen It and rinsed thoroughly. (I had intentions of treating some metal stains and removing metals from the water and this was the first part of the process but the SWG was never turned off so the chlorine was at 8 after those 48 hours so I aborted the metals intervention). Obviously we did not rinse the cartridges well enough because since I turned the fountains on we could have a foam party in my pool. The store said it will be ok but then again, they recommended the product so I really want to ask you all.
Ch 7 (its high but will come down as the sun starts to shine eventually)
The sides and bottom seem slippery but the water is clear.
I have not shocked the pool since opening. I added Algaeside 60(from wall mart) non foaming and no metal ingredients.
The temperature is a wonderful 58 degrees.
I don't want to do anything else until I get some direction.
