I have been having so many problems with my pool. I won't bore you with all of the details suffice to say that although I have tried to follow best practice as per this site I still have a cloudy green pool with a brown plating on the surfaces. I know what the problems are, and I thought I knew what the solutions were - but no dice.
(My ph is in range, my cyanuric levels are good, total alk good, chlorine levels all good, hardness in range, plenty of non copper algeacide in water, been flocked to dead and removed to waste. Can sequestrate iron content (but can't remove it). I've done this over an over but within a day or so of a clear pool it goes to mush)
My question is. Has anyone ever got to the point where it is just better to dump all of the water and start over? It feels like an extreme step but usual remedies are not working and I worry that I am just creating a toxic sludge (things that just don't show up in a normal test)
Thanks in advance if you can help.....
