I feel like I've been fighting a loosing battle all summer long. It's been one thing after another: several storms including one big huboob, then the pump burnt out, excessive heat & 16hrs of direct sunshine for months on end.
The huboob left the pool in the worse mess ever then it sat for two weeks while the motor was being repaired. I finally got the water clear but the algae was like a velvet blanket on the plaster. Shocking and all the sweeping didn't even make a dent in it. So over three weekends I put on my scuba and physically scrubbed it with small wire brush and my PoolCleaner vacuumed it up. Finally, a clear, clean pool... for 2 days... and the water is green, again. I shocked it with FC at 24 for a couple days and the water went from green to cloudy. I've been testing twice a day and continue to shock bringing FC to 16-18 depending on what the Pool Calculator says but the water remains cloudy. It's been 8 days and there is does not appear to be any improvement.
Financially, I am unable to continue doing what I've been doing for much long. $100 for 6% bleach/10% liquid chlorine just this week alone.
Current levels are: FC 11.5 CC 0; pH 7.6; TA 125; CH 300; CYA 40; Temp 82.
Pool Calculator says to add 165 oz of 10% which I'm about to do now.
What am I missing?
