Hi guys. I am hoping you can help me with my pool. I am a new pool owner...we bought a house 3 years ago with a pool. This is my third season. We live near boston, ma. I have done all the maintenance, open/close myself.
So here is my problem. My pool is extremely cloudy...greyish green. I d a main drain leak this winter...which i fixed. But as a result...my pool was almost empty when i openned it up. I filled it...we have a well. I have begun to shock the pool over the last 2 days. 4 gallons of shock saturday...another 2 gallons yesterday, wednesday. I was filtering...but my filter was clogging (i say that because my return flow slows way down) within an hour or so. I was blowing through DE so right now i have the system in recirc. The water is grey and extremely cloudy. Below are all my chemical results as of 9 am this morning. I am listing what i have...sorry.
32000 IG vinyl
I think the filter is 32
I can tell you the filter is older. It is like a silver cylinder...with a seal around the middle. When i openned it to clean it it has curved fins that kind of wrap around each other.
Ph - between 6.8 and 7.2
Total alc- 40-50
Stabilizer - 20
Thank you so much for your help and advice!
