Here are the particulars:
First post and first question. Here is the back story. We bought this house at the end of last season, August. I did not get the pool closed and we have a monster 110 ft oak 12 ft away from the pool. Obviously TONS of leaves in the pool and started with the blackest smelliest swamp I have ever seen, dead squirrels and 1 river rat included. It took me about 6 weeks to get it all cleaned up and the chemistry pretty good with the water, somewhere near 40 trash bags full of leaves with roughly 10 leaf vacuum dumpings per bag. I have been dedicated! Here is my problem, the water once it cleared up is yellow. It sparkles just like any pool I have ever seen and the water is CRYSTAL clear. The local pool store says it could be pollen but I see no particulate matter either on the surface or on the bottom when I vacuum to waste. Could this pollen be still suspended? I have had the chemistry "right" for nearly a month with elevated chlorine levels in case this was an algae of some kind. The liner is not stained that I can determine but I can't get this yellow out! Please help! I don't know if I can hear my 4 year old daughter tell me again that I "forgot to make the water blue today daddy"!
Thanks in advance.
