I am having trouble opening my pool for the season, becoming very frustrated as I have already missed a couple of weeks of a short Canadian summer.
Bottom line is that the pool was a 'swamp' about two weeks ago and now it is a cloudy light/greenish blue color. Here is the breakdown:
I have a 21ft above ground pool, 50000 litres of water.
I added two litres of SHock treatment which turned the water blue but was still cloudy. I took my water sample in added the reccommended Calcium and Alkalinity along with Stabilizer. Two days later I was worse off so I added a bottle of Clear, waited 24 hours, vacuumed, no results. Last night I added a 1 litre bottle of Floc, ran the pump for 6 hours, then shut if off for 18. The pool is now a light green and I can barely see a foot below water level. I just vaccummed for 30 minutes but have to stop as the water is below the skimmer so I thought I would join this website while I top up the water. I am hoping to find the answer I am looking for.
My next step is to drain the water and fill it up, missing yet another week at least!
Any reccommendations please?
