Hi all. I am not really new to the whole pool thing, but it seems that every year i go through the same thing. Water is beautiful to start but within a few months it either turns cloudy or green. This year its turquoise cloudy lol.
At first i discovered my testing strips were bad and giving me terrible results. But i now have new ones. At first my TA and pH were the problem. But i have added muratic acid and brought them down to acceptable levels. Now my FC & TC are outrageous. My water iz cloudy and smells so terribly bad of chlorine.
This happens every year. Either i cant keep the chlorine or i get swamp water. But i have NEVER had a chlorine reading so high. Please help me.
I was using tabs but stopped. Have also used household bleach and xtra blu shock with algecide crystals.
We recently had severe storms blow through.
I am starting to believe my final resort is to drain and fill to drop the CYA.
