Hi Everyone, just joined and looking for some help...
Opened the pool up 2 weeks ago,
It was pretty dark green upon getting the cover off, managed to get it off without getting any debris etc. in it
Shocked it with 5 gallons of Liq. Ch. Cleared up instantly... (haven't seen the bottom since)
Starting filling the rest of the way with my well. (My well water is fine, no copper, iron, etc.)
Left it running over night (forgot to turn the hose off) and ran my well pretty much dry.
Even in my house the water was coming out of the faucets cloudy/dirty for about a day. Until the
That morning the pool was a mean brown/green (not from algea, but from whatever was put in from my water supply
I've been back and forth to the pool store, adjusting levels, but pretty much my levels have been great.
My filter doesn't seem to be touching the haze though...
Levels as of 6/16
FC - Free Chlorine 5
CC - Combined Chlorine 5
pH - 7.6
TA - Total Alkalinity -123
CH - Calcium Hardness - 124
CYA - Cyanuric Acid (stabilizer) 100
No metals, no algeas
High Phoshates 2500.
I let it sit for two days with the filter not running while I replaced the impeller seal and the water turned from mean brown to lagoon green and I have visibility to the bottom (I can make out an object but cannot see the detail of the liner)
Vac to waste last night and looked a little better still.
Today definitly still cloudy, visibility is the same... My chlorine levels have been 5-10 without having to constantly shock.
The big question... (what would you do next?)
Pool store recommened a phosfloc treatment.
After reading horror story after horror story about phosfloc,
I didn't want to go there.
