    Found the site last week, wish it had been years ago.


    My name is Seamus ( Irish for James )

    Live in Sacramento Ca.

    Pool went Black Lagoon last Fall, emptied except for the last foot since then.

    So tired of the chlorine battle installed SWG.

    cleared out remaining water, disgusting.

    Fresh Water, 600lbs of Morton Pool Salt, Shocked with liquid chlorine,
    cleaned filters

    Two hard weeks of testing, chemicals, running the pump, clean filter again.
    Pool is crystal clear.

    Still need to pumice the sides, but I got some time.

    Need a little more CYA, SWG working good. Three hot days no change in chlorine level

    Thanks for all the great info, going to do the BBB.

    Welcome to TFP... I hope a good test kit is on your list if you haven't gotten one already. It is the best money you can spend on your pool.
