My wife and i just bought a house that has a pool so were still learning. I have a 20k vinyl chlorine pool with a hayward sand filer that I started to open in march. It was a green swamp and I learned a lot while getting rid of the algae.
After a lot of money and hard work it has finally cleared up and looks wonderful, however... every time I turn on the booster pump where my Polaris hooks up cloudy water will come out of it very quickly and form a white substance on the surface of the water. It doesnt matter if the Polaris is hooked up or not, cloudy water will come from that jet.
I have tried sand revitalizer and no luck. Leslie pools recommended algae aid plus and no luck with it either. My only thought would be that the sand may need to be changed (seller didnt disclose how old the sand is). I am not sure what else to do.
My readings from leslies pool store is:
Total bromine 2
Calcium hardness 130
Please help a new pool owner!
