Greetings, everyone. Looking for some (a lot) of help, and if what I've read already on this site is any indication, I want to say thanks in advance.
Second year pool owner
Opened "professionally" 10 days ago ($425); have run filter continuously since, have backwashed and recharged w/ DE 4 times in 10 days (although, pressure has been holding steady at 20-22 psi).
Started green, turned blue and cloudy 5 days ago.
Leslie's tested the water and told me to raise pH, raise hardness, add PhosFree, keep shocking daily with granules, backwash frequently ($270).
5 days now and still blue and cloudy, with a layer of sediment.
Confused. Angry at expense. Bought a Taylor Complete FAS-DPD test kit ($75) and will test tonight and follow-up with results. Just wanted to introduce myself for now and set the stage. Looking forward to interacting with you all.
