New to pools. Bought a house and it came with it. Above ground 18 ' round 4 ft deep. Sand filter.
We had already added 5 dichlor shocks 1/2 gal murianic acid and 6lbs of Baking Soda to even get these results.
Our problem is levels don't seem terrible, but the swamp along with red worms hasn't changed much. The color is now a white gray green though. But very opaque. After the results from the pool store above...we did what we were told and added another 3 dichlor shocks and 1/2 bottle of floc. No change. I will test with our 4 test tester today, but how much bleach would I need for an actual shock. Is it cheaper to use the bleach? Any other suggestions. Do I just get the chemical tests right and wait (a long time). Doesn't seem like a fun pool for Memorial Weekend.
Thanks for you help in advance.
