Hello! My name is Jim and I have a new to me 25k inground pool. See signature for details.
I went crazy with chemicals after I pulled the cover off to discover a green mess. I threw Algaecide and Shock from the local box store. Got the green gone and then flocked it to get it to settle . I have been vacuuming, scrubbing the walls, and rinsing the cartridges in the filter. Filter has been running a week and it is still cloudy. I got the PH and TA good 7.8/130 before I bought the Taylor K-2006 testing kit.
Here is what testing tonight. First post here... so go easy on me!
CYA 0 (never got the dot to disappear)
CH (never got the solution to turn red. It was purple-ish blue)
Looks like I need a boatload of chlorine. Any advise would be appreciated as it would get my kids off my back!
