After finally refilling the pool (due to months of leak issues), the pool quickly became cloudy and green. Treated with 'Green to Clean' + shock treatments according to the local pool store. Haven't been able to bring the pH up, however. Bottom line? Boatloads of copper. After draining 3/4 and refilling, there is still approx., 8-10 PPM (estimating via dillution, since most tests only go to 3; different results at different stores). Surprisingly, there is no staining that we can tell as yet, but we have since have been given differing (often opposing) 'solutions'. Should we drain again or use a chelating agent? Any other ideas? It's getting quite wasteful and expensive. [I'm so ready for an oxidizing method that doesn't require chemicals!]
Thanks for any suggestions you can offer!
