Pool new in 9/2012, never cloudy no maintenance other than acid as the Aquapure 1400 took care of everything, what a simple life.
SWG Cell broke over winter (aquapure 1400), bought a new one, installed this spring, does not seem to generate chlorine, pool started turning cloudy/lite green, started pool essentials shock granuals and then tabs since i didn't get SWG working. cloudy went away easy no green.
after a few weeks of that now my CYA is 100+ and chlorine is gone every day after adding a couple gallons of bleach. but at least the water is perfectly clear and no green.
new 4 cart filters as well. old ones had slite green tinge.
i added 8 gallons of bleach today to initate SLAM asuming that is next (not ready to empty but probably have to but not sure how to manage that in Sacramento, CA with our drought).
I just don't think I can continue the high FC during slam until all the algae is dead. any other options short of reducing CYA with draining what appears to be 40% of the water? That bioactive stuff doesn't seem to have good reviews for lowering CYA so I don't want to do that.
