Been reading on the site for a bit to attempt to gather knowledge to tackle my green pool - it's either that or wait until Halloween and lead the trick-or-treaters to the back yard and theme it for the Creature from the Black Lagoon. I've seen the amazing results some other pool owners have had so I'm confident (with your help) that success is attainable. I'm new to taking care of the pool myself and I'm done with the local pool store, I've spent lots of money but it seems my pool is not even fazed by what i'm being told to do, so here's where I am...
FC - 0
CC - 0
PH - 7.2
TA - 70
CH - 390
CY - black dot never disappeared
Water is green and has foam on the surface, I vacuumed to waste twice last week to try to clear any unseen debris from the bottom.
I know I need to add chlorine (bleach?) I have 15 jugs sitting on the back porch waiting. and I've played around with the pool calculator so I believe I know how much I need to add. Is that my very next step? SLAM the pool?
Thank you all for your help - it is very much appreciated!
