Hi, I have been reading for days and understand enough to know I need advice. I have never had a pool before so please realize I know nothing. I have read many of the posts but am getting so confused, not sure where to start. I would appreciate any help as I don't want to ruin the pool or poison myself. What to do simplified would help a lot. I have a medical problem and get confused easily. Here is the pool summary:
Inground, plaster, 2 waterfalls Pool built Oct. 2008
Hayward equipment (cartridge filters) recently cleaned
about 17,000 gal.
Salt Water Generator (cell cleaned and tested last week)
Test results done July 9 Leslie's Pool (not sure if they really test the copper and iron) our house water is very hard and we have a softener, I think it was around 15ppm. We are NOT (not shouting) using softener water for the pool
I am using All Clear 2 way test kit and also AquaChek Select test strips (all left by previous owner)
The pool water is clear and somewhat sparkly. The is a little whitish around the water line. And I seen the very faintest of yellow/green, very faint, looks like stain on the sides. I have used a plastic bristle brush to scrub down the sides, doesn't seem to make a difference.
Chemicals left by previous owner.
Thank you in advance for suggestions and your help.
