To say the least, this site has been great. However, I truly need some advice with my pool. Long story short, I had a dark green swamp which then I proceeded to shock and filter. Water turned murky lighter green and has stayed that way since, for more than a week now. In my error of assuming that the pool floor was fairly clear of debris (as I could not see the bottom), I found that I had quite of bit of leaves and twigs and proceeded to remove them best I could with a net and with a polaris cleaner. Did another shock last night to about 20fc and color has remaind the same. 60Sqft DE filter has been cleaned and backwashed in separate cases during this process. As you can see in the pic, the first step is visible but nothing beyond that. Pretty sad, I must say
I'm receiving my test kit tomorrow so I'll have accurate readings this weekend but wanted to get started on receiving some knowledge on tackling this issue. Results are from test strip for now (I won't be surprised to see different readings this weekend):
FC: 10+ (likely 15+)
Your great knowledge is appreciated!
