so, i'm on day 10 of a slam, and the water is clear (imho), i'm getting lots of sparkle, but i still can't pass the overnight test. i'm brushing/vacuuming twice a day (every square inch, i promise!), cleaning the cartridge filter every other day, and checking the fc levels at least 4 times a day. i'm tired. i'm almost out of the powder, and have more being sent, but i'm not sure if it will get here before i run out.....
There's also something on the floor/walls, that just isn't going away. not sure if it's metal or algae. we've had issues with metal in the past (thanks pool store guy!) back when my husband was in charge of the pool. when i scrub on it nothing happens.
anyhoo- i'm stumped. there are probably 20 empty jugs of bleach in my trash can, and the trash guys will probably think i've cleaned up a crime scene.
i just really don't know what to do. i'm so frustrated and disheartened. and my husband is thinking this process isn't working, and we should go back to the old way of doing things. any thoughts? i'm desperate, please encourage me.
