First of all, this forum is awesome so kudos to all of the experts on here! I am having trouble with my pool in that it has become very green. Shame on us for letting it get this bad but we need some help to fix it. Here are the details:
- Intex 18' x 48"
- Filled with well water that ended up being pretty rusty (just moved to a different house)
- Test levels are: TH - 200, FC - 0, pH - 8.4, TA - 200, CYA - 80
- Water has a brown "dust" on the bottom yesterday and is green with algae today
I went to WalMart and picked up hth 4-in-1 shock treatment and chlorinating liquid. So far I shook in about 1/2 a bag of the shock treatment and have the pump recirculating with a new filter installed. Looking for advice on next steps and really am curious to know if we can get this thing to be clear again.
Please help! Thank you in advance from the rookie.
