OK my pool has reached a light solid shade green, I put almost 2000 oz. of 6% bleach in and no change. I tested and hour after I put the bleach in and the cl was off the chart. I tested again tonight and its at a 5. with a ph of 7.2 and a TA of 120. I tested for CYA and it didn't even register which I mean below 30 because my test never clouded at all so the dot never disappeared. I checked for hardness which at first I thought was 0 also but as I was writing my info down it turned a light pink color (supposed to turn red) so I proceeded further with the test to turn it blue (which it turned a pale blue) and ended up with a result of 160. but I don't know if this is correct. Also when I go out at night and shine the flash light down in the water I can see white looking flakes. Its gross. When we first opened the pool put in 4 one pound bags of super shock I got at my local pool store. Thats what got it to the light solid green. Oh and also i had my water tested and they said I had high phosphates (1700) so I bought $48 bottle of remover guess what It did nothing went back 2 days later still tested at 1700. My boys are getting anxious to get in and I am getting frustrated.
Pool is in full sun, with pine trees near by.
