Having problems getting my pool blue. A month ago it was blue but really foggy. I went on vacation and it rained alot. When I got back it was green. Been shocking the **** out of it and it won't change from nasty green. I bought a new filter and pump. Catridge filter and 1.5hp pump. My water test is
total chlorine 7.5
free chlorine 7.5
Total alkalinity 99
total hardness 290
I was told to add 15lbs of alkalinity ^ and 1.5 qts of scale inhibitor and to not shock for 5 days.
I ran my pump for 24 hrs a day for 3 days now since adding new chemicals and is still dark green
I was told on a different forum that its algea and to keep the chlorine level at atleast 25 ppm to kill it. Been 3 days of that and noooo luck
Been running pump for 24 hours a day, no luck.
Any help or suggestions? Makes me want to give up. I'm using the trouble free test kit to test with. Thanks
