I am new here and just received my new test kit today. Some history behind our pool, 22x52 metal frame Intex, with an Intex sand filter. Bought the pool last year, kept water clear using bleach, baking soda and borax. Pool was not closed properly and started to try and open back in april, had to leave only to come back to a green swamp! Have cleared the algae successfully, (took forever) now I have cloudy water that will not clear up! My test results show extremely high TA. Which I am pretty sure is my fault! I have spent a lot of money so far and lots of time vacuuming and I am running the pump 24/7 at this point. From what I read it seems like it would take a lot of time and product to lower it where I need it to be.Would it just be better to do a partial drain? Very frustrated and wish I had purchased the test kit sooner, because I had no idea my TA was this high!
