this season when i opened the pool we had a swamp! Ive been filtering and shocking pool for almost three weeks now. Ive been vacuuming at least 2 times per day and checking chlorine levels a minimum of 3 times per day. my numbers have been pretty consistent over this time. they are as follows:
FC - been keeping it at 14 has fallen as low as 10
CC - between .5 and 1
CYA - 35

pool has been at this point now for 5 days see picture doesn't see to get any better. I have put on a DIY slime filter you can see it in the picture (used idea from sight which turned completely brown within 24 hrs. I have removed and washed the filter a few times. I also added a skimmer sock all to no avail. I have also been back washed my filter 5 time in this process about every-other day, till water runs clear which only takes a couple of minutes.
now this is my question when i vacuum i get a lot of glass particles in the bottom of my pool. i was vacuuming to the pool filter but now i have been using a pool blaster that's when i noticed a lot of glass particles in the vacuum filter about 3/4 cup per day. We have a Sand filter - Swim pro Model # SW256T - 250 lb High rate sand filter ( used glass not sand)Effective Filtration Area 3.22 ft2 Filtration Rate 25 GPM/ft not sure how old. Could i have a filter issue of is it a patience issue any advice or suggestions would be great.
