    Pool smell

    I have an 18' round, 48" above ground pool. My wife is complaining that the water kind of smells swampy. It kind of offends her but not me. The pool is balanced quite well with chloreen and ph. Is there anything I can do to eliminate this?

    Is the water clear? No green tint? Does it smell swampy or chloriney? Can you post up some test results including CC?

    Please post a full set of water test results. There is probably something we can spot in your test results.

    X3 for test results. Your pool shouldn't have any odor to it if all the chems are balanced.
