    Green corners is indicative of poor circulation....the chlorine you are adding isn't getting dispersed well. Need more info about your pool....filter pump returns skimmer etc

    You can use the insert link option, or upload your pictures to a picture hosting site like photobucket and link them.

    It holds 29,240 L of water , or 7725 gallons ; it says it's a 1500 gallon pump !! Very hard to get water to circulate nicely in a rectangle pool ??? Without a larger horsepower pump !! But anyways that's what I have I'm reading about using stabilizer and liquid chlorine .. . Or bleach .... I had been using way too much chemicals ... pucks are useless !!!

    How many returns are in your pool and where are they in relation to your skimmer? Do your returns have adjustable nozzles? I have a rectangular 18x36 pool and have no problem with circulation. A way to see your water path is to throw some ping-pong balls into the pool and watch where they go. Then adjust return direction and pump pressure if you can to get them to circulate.

    OK so I understand now .. I can't get a reading until I've put my chlorine in ... as their is no reading without my first chemicals

    Correct...until you get your test kit you can still manage your pool. Use the pool math link and enter the size of your pool in gallons. Enter a target CYA of 30 and current CYA of 0 if you're refilling. Enter a target FC of 5 and a current FC of 0. Enter the percent concentration of bleach you are using. The pool math will tell you how much bleach and how much stabilizer to add. Come back here and tell us what pool math says and we'll confirm for you. After that we can tell you how much beach to add daily until your kit comes in. Then when your test kit arrives post all the numbers and we'll help you balance TA and pH and CH.
