I just added a bag of shock. Its a average-large pool in the backyard. Just moved here. I've read that adding clorox could solve this along with vaccuuming which I attempted the first time, and this was right before I was traveling. I knew it wasn't clear so I called a company who serviced when I returned I was billed ok.. they continued coming for 2 weeks and then stopped I called asking why they stopped coming, and my pool was growing over again.. They said they just wanted to discontunue service here.
So I am frustrated, but anyway, back to the issue. I was told to call a "different" pool company, I've just decided to try to do this myself.
The filter is a not a sand filter, although my realtor told me to check the sand and keep it maintenanced - I did not see any sand or any place to put sand in it..
THe vaccuum I have it a Pool Blaster, which actually is very inefficient. It tracks about 2 inch strips rather than actually a lot of surface at a time.
Will pool shock be enough.. I just put one bag and brushed and added another tablet to the floating chlorine dispenser. The water is greener than it was yesterday. Filter needs to be cleaned it looks like as well. I need to start somewhere and the instructions all about testing and so on.. are a bit too heavy for me so if you would just tell me what To do at the moment.
I am in Florida and it rains every few days. There are trees hanging over my yard which might be contributing to the green in the pool.. and I dunno. but I appreciate the help.
