We are relatively new pool owners, having inherited a pool in our new house. These past 2 years, we have a nightmare of a time keeping the pool clear. Using the advice of the forum, I have been using BBB to balance the water. The info has been very helpful and I feel like I am finally understanding things (this is my first year to 'take over' the pool maintenance). I got a taylor's test kit on 6/10 and have had balanced water but still green. I have had CC of 0.5 or less since 6/22, and FC as high as 12 on 6/25. I put in 8 oz DE in the skimmer on 6/27 and it came right out of the returns, so I added 8 oz more. Waited 2 days and no change. We have been running the pump continuously since mid-May, and the sand was changed last year. My husband is reluctant to open up the filter since it was such a pain last year. WHAT CAN I DO TO CLEAR THIS OF A MONSTER POOL? I LOATH THE THING
I don't know if it's relevant, but I added a lot of water on 6/26 and also ran out of chlorine testing reagent that day.
