    Green Pool Water

    We live in Iowa and it is peek swim season. We have had our AG pool for about three weeks. We have a salt water system running. Everything was fine for two weeks and then within a day the pool turned green with Algae. Our copper level is 0 our chlorine is less than .2 our pH is 8.5 and total alkalinity is 240. I have no idea what to do! Our saltwater system is on a boost cycle but quickly gives an error code of low flow. I want this fixed ASAP. Please Advise.

    Pool size approx. gallons 7000

    That should get you there. You are either not running the SWG at a high enough output or not running enough hours per day most likely. Get the PH down to 7.2-7.4 before shocking process. Welcome.

    I addition to what woodyp said, it would help a great deal if you post a full set of water test results. But, as he said, getting the PH down is still the first priority.
