We had a 16 x 28 above ground pool installed a few months ago and were talked into getting pristine blue. Every 2 weeks we have been going for water testing and by then it's usually cloudy. For the first week or so it's crystal clear after putting the chemicals in. We usually have to put in pristine clear, blue, a bag of shock, some muriatic acid and a brite stick. I am reading how pristine blue isn't so great. I did notice that my swimsuit had a green tinge and my blonde daughters hair is greenish.
is pristine blue more expensive than the chlorine route?
We keep going back to the pool store for testing since I don't want to mess up the pool.
Draining the pool and starting over isn't an option.
