Help! Have crystal clear water... aside from the fact that it's completely green. Passed OCLT for four days, so presuming we're not talking algae at this point. Guessed it would be minerals, so added a sequestrant (MetalFree). The pool store tested when I brought in a sample, but they said no copper (although, how reliable they are is questionable, I suppose). Cleaned the cartridge filter after 24 hrs. of running on high, but it's barely off-white. And nothing is disturbed off the bottom at all when I brush. Pump has been running 24/7, it seems, for weeks now.
Am fighting a losing battle. When I topped off at the beginning of the season, I think I may have had the line on bypass and filled 4-5" w/ straight well water by mistake instead of softened house water. But at this point, I don't know what to do. Any thoughts on the following:
1) Should I bother getting my own metal test kit?
2) Added one bottle (1L) of MetalFree. Instructions said one bottle per 20,000 gal. Person in the store said I'd see some results in 24 hrs. Do I just need to wait longer? Add more?
3) Would it make sense to build my own nuclear reactor for all the energy I'm burning running my pump?
Thanks so much for any help anyone can provide. Here are the latest numbers:
FC: 9.5, TC: 10, Ph: 7.2, TA: 55, CYA: <30
(Had kept Cl up at 12 for an eternity before letting drop slowly after passing OCLT.)
