I have a Summer Escape 18' x 48" round above ground quick set pool. (7600 Gallons). I have just replaced the 1000 GPH pump with a 2500 GPH pump. I admit, I was stupid to let my pool go last winter, Life got busy and I failed my pool. Now I am fighting an unseen forces. I have been told and have self tested that everything is great! My pool is clear now ( definitely had other lifeforms before)> I created a siphon with a hose and evacuated all the contents from the bottom of the pool and began treating it. I have put some of this and that to get the pool under control, including alga-side, and numerous gallons of chlorine and bags of shock. My pool seems to hold the chlorine over night But during the day it is diminished to nothing. Below are my results for today (This has beed the case now for over a month, regardless of what chlorine i add. (I used the pool calculator.. It tells me to add a little chlorine, If I follow it's request I will get nowhere) My pool will not hold chlorine at all!!!
I live in Scottsdale, My pool gets sunlight from 7am to 4pm. My temp right now is 84. I'm debating getting an umbrella to get less direct sun.
I am lost at this point. Your help is requested and appreciated.
