Last night we refilled our pool after a fiberglass resurfacing, this morning we added chlorine and very quickly the pool turned green. Water is clear green and we can see all the way to the main drain (See attached photo)It is a diving pool, so that is 9+ feet of water. Given that I don't think we are dealing with algae (The two dots at the bottom are diving dolphins thrown in by excited kids, and the darker part is just in shade.)
Based on what I have read here, it sounds like we must have had metal in the water, probably (based on color) copper. I cannot get Metal Magic or Magic Jack's in town anywhere, but I can get HTH Metal Control at Home Depot.
Is that a reasonable solution? I realize the puts the metal in solution and will have to be managed over time. What FC, PH levels should I be shooting for before adding this? Right now FC is over 6 (Overshot badly due to reading chart wrong) and PH is 7.2
