It has been a loooong few weeks. We have metals and apparently a ton of pollen in our water and have run the spectrum of colors. We've had turqouise, dark purple/ black, yellow, darker yellow, green and plain old cloudy. All the while, the water has been fairly balanced- it was so frustrating.
I have spent a lot of time on TFP the last week's looking for ideas and have had a few people suggest having a "professional" fix our water.
I got a robot so I didn't have to vacuum to waste and have been pulling out a ton of pollen in my skimmer socks every day. Both of these were non-chemical ideas I found on TFP. I went out tonight and the pool is SPARKLING! Lifted up the solar cover and the water is crystal clear! Thanks to all who post and discuss ideas. It is finally CLEAR!!!
