Okay, I'm new and this is my first thread. I have an above ground 33' pool that I just got last fall. We use the Bacquacil products. We only used it for a couple of weeks before we closed it last fall. It's the first pool I've owned and am new to EVERYTHING!
It was all good until I started vacuuming and seemed to be stirring up stuff. It became cloudy so we put new chemicals in and seemed to improve, but everytime I vacuum, it stirs up stuff and we end up with cloudy water...that is, until last week when it started getting a green tint. Now it is completely, emerald green. It is not transparent and opaque green, it is completely green. We put the chemicals in yesterday, took another sample to the store, and added more chemicals today.
I'm so disgusted with my brand new pool. The store told us that we need to change the sand out, (which was only used a couple of weeks last fall) because the Bacquacil products cause the sand to clump, thus not letting it filter. So, now, I not only cannot swim in my pool, but now I need to change out the sand, which I will only be able to use for just a few weeks bc the weather in West Virginia gets cool around the first of September. What to do???? I feel hopeless. I have a cousin coming to visit in 2 weeks and it looks like we won't be able to use the pool.
