Hi all, I have a 24' round AGP with a Hayward sand filter and 1.5HP pump. We tried to open the pool a week ago the same way we do every year ( Shock heavily the 1st day while adding a gallon of bleach and borax to get the pH at the correct level and 3oz of stain away. I replaced the sand and replaced all o-rings on the filter,basket and pump as well.
We have run the filter for the eintire week while adding shock and bleach while back-washing every day. I have vacumed to pool and tested the water as well:
Above test were done with my trusty TF-100
After vacuming today I can see the bottom but barely. There were some pine needles bunched up and they looked like a faint dark spot rather than a detailed pine needle party The water feels good if that makes any sense. I have opened this same pool for 6 years now and never had this porblem. Any advice would be much apprciated.
