I have been keeping FC steady at around 20. Pool has turned from very green to milky blueish!!! (My wife is amazed) There are millions of white specs in the pool which I assume are dead algae. My problem is that I still have to backwash my filter every hour and during the day which means when I'm not home I cant leave it running and I'm going through a lot of DE. (Only about 5 hours a day of filtering)
I have a old sand filter (250 lb) and pump from an aboveground pool. Would it be worth it to temporarily hook that up next to the pool and let that filter? I would just have to buy sand which will be a lot cheaper in the long run (a little more than the cost of 1 25lb box of DE) , or is there anything else that I can do?
