I am new to owning a pool and i'm not liking it so far Its 22,000 gallons, gunite, IG.
Here are my test results from today:
sat index: 10.1
I think theyre the main results you need to help me, if you can, now my problem
I shocked my pool on friday, 2 lbs of power powder plus. A cloud instantly appeared and is getting worse every day. The week before i had had to adjust my alkalinity, add stabilizer, i used copper algaecide. I also backwashed before adding these.
I added clarifier this weekend and it just got cloudier, today i woke to a milky blue pool so i grabbed another sample and headed to a pool store i havent tried since moving into town 4/5 weeks ago, im waiting on my taylor kit to arrive. They told me i had added too much clarifier, gave the above results, at first recomended i needed to vacuum to waste and power flock? But i told her i didnt have the equipment and she said before allowing me to buy it she wanted to try this:
Brush pool (I stupidly didnt think i needed to do this EVER because i have an aquabot)
Add 6oz algaecide
Backwash for 5 minutes
Rinse for 1
Add 4oz of clarifier to the skimmer
and wait for 4 days and if still cloudy add a further 4oz of clarifier.........and cross my fingers!
I really like this store, theyre the first to not make me spend a ton on their stuff, they actuallt stopped me spending! I was in the pool removing the aquabot and brushing and the water is so thick and nasty, when i got the aquabot out, white milky water rushed from it, a minute later a white powdery layer had formed over it and its wires.......and the concrete around the pool.
In case this stuff with the pool store doesnt work, anyone got any ideas? I literally cannot see anything....its so MILKY!
