First time pool owners here, completely lost and starting to get frustrated. Been browsing these forums for weeks so finally decided to make an account and ask for help!
We just bought our house that has a half in ground, half above ground 18,000 gallon pool.
It started out very dark green, i finally found and started exactly following the SLAM process last week now and water is more of a pale green but we can't see more than 2 feet down. we managed to scoop a ton of leaves out of it and vacuumed as best we could last week (all blindly). I know there is probably still more down there but it's just so hard to get it out when we can't see what we're doing. I've been brushing the bottom and sides everyday as well and can see the liner on the sides, it's more clear on the sides and the green where we can't see anything is fixated in the center of the pool.
CYA is around 25, FC:10 TC:10 pH 7.3 TA 170
We're passing the OCLT, and cc is 0. Am I on the right track? Am I doing anything wrong, is there something else we should be doing?
We considered using Floc or doing a partial drain (due to debris in the deep end that we cannot see) not sure if either of these would help or just make worse.
Thank you in advanced, hope that wasn't too long -_-
