I recently just put up an Intex 15' x 48" pool for the kiddos. I filled it with my tap water and having a hard time getting it clear now although it started out clear. I probably should have come here first. I added about 5 1" chlorine tabs to a floating dispenser to start and now the pool is green and cloudy. Ph was high so I added Ph down to fix that. I added about 30oz. of liquid shock (12.5%) and 8 oz of Clorox Algaecide today and then tested the pool about 3 hours later
with the HPH 6 way tested and came up with the following readings:
Ch Br: 5 10
Hardness: ??? (Couldn't get test to function properly...water wouldn't turn red)
CYA: Basically 0. Filled the whole tube and could still see the black dot fine.
I need help!! How to I clear this thing up?? I just ordered an Intex 2800 sand filter pump to replace the junk 1000 gallon cartridge filter it came with. Do I need to add more shock?? I'm guessing the green is algae, correct??
Thank you in advance to you all!!!
