My husband and I bought a home with an inground pool that had been neglected. We had a new liner installed and the liner man opened the pool. We know nothing about maintaining a pool! I have carefully studied the BBB method in Pool School and I am almost ready to attack our problem pool! Current equipment is a cartridge filter but the cartridge has a hole somewhere and we are installing a sand filter tomorrow. Our current issue is algae, the pool is now a lovely shade of emerald! Blah!
I will be beginning BBB with the shock process tomorrow afternoon when the new sand filter is up and running.
I have purchased the Leslie's version of the recommended test kit.
Any advice is appreciated! Thank you!
Current Levels per the Pool Store's tester:
Is the high phosphate level a cause for concern? Pool Store Guy talked about PHOSfree but I really don't want to add anything like that, especially until I get the BBB method running nicely.
