A little background first....
my pool sat unused for two years with no cover.....so you can imagine how attractive it was when I started working on it. I didn't know if I should go fishing or put in chemicals. I was going to drain my pool but after extensive research realized that would do nothing more than ruin my liner. So began my descent into a mental breakdown......I got a leave rake and spent six hours dredging out leaves and muck...smelled like a sewer. I took sample of water to pool store and did whatever they told me. it went from black to cloudy blue/green pretty quickly. I have probably used 26 gallons of liquid shock...bought whatever I needed to buy to get all withing correct levels. Here are my current numbers
TC 15.......was told to keep it between 15 and 30
Langelier index value 0.13
Pool store said my chemicals are balanced. And now I have a "**** floating in pool" problem. So, I used clarifier and when that failed I used floc....I know that is a bit controversial but used it none the less...I have what looks like snow floating in my pool. Dead algae? thats what I am told. I clean my filter around 6 times a day and clean the muck off of it. Never does my pool clear...I can see about 18 inches into my pool. Driving me nuts...I truly feel like I have done everyting I can.
Any help would be appreciated.
