Opened the pool to cloudy water - but didn't see any algae. Added water from the well, started the filter running and it started clearing up a bit. Took a sample of water to pool store to check for iron/metals in the water, and got the 'all clear'....
I immediately came home and added Stabilizer first (per the pool store) and then the Chlorine (per the pool calculator). Immediately after adding chlorine, the water started turning green .... again .... just like last year. Then after green, came the brown....looks like a swamp now. My grandson is so disappointed!
I have a new Tf100 test kit and ph is good as well as chlorine level. I'm really not sure where to go from here... Last year when I had the 'coffee pool' I kept cleaning the filter, overfilling it so I could vacuum to waste, and shocking. Should I use dichlor to shock, or stick with chlorine?
I really do not know what to do next. What tests should I take to get more info so you could better direct me?
Thank you for your assistance, as always!
