I am very excited to find this site. We have had our pool for 3 seasons now, and the past 2 it was always very cloudy and we had no idea why. This year we decided to refill it with fresh water, and I attempted to educate myself on balancing chemicals. We have a 24ft 13,500 above ground pool. We had the water tested when it was delivered, and had to add calcium, cyuric acid, chlorine, and ABC Balance. The chemicals are now all in the "ideal" range--and we now have cloudy blue water. I am at my ropes end on what to do with this pool!!!! We have been running the filter 6-8 hours every day, and I did notice today alot of little bugs floating in the water, but besides that it is just cloudy. We do have lots of trees around our pool. But everything is just floating, not sinking to the bottom. Also, our pump loses pressure alot and we have to back flush it every day.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do or what could be causing all the problems???? I keep hearing from other people how they just add a gallon of bleach every week and their pool is sparkling clean-we test and balance almost every day, yet ours is a mess!!!!!
Any help is very appreciated!~
