I've been fighting my pool since we opened it Memorial Day weekend. It seemed to open okay but then it was turning green so I would shock and then the algea would die but the pool was cloudy. I took a sample of water to my pool store thinking that I had a high concentration of metals in my water (had that problem last year, we top off every year with well water). They said I didn't have metals, but phosphates. I bought the PhosFree and ran the pump for a week. The water was still cloudy and turned a green/brown color yesterday so back I went to the store. They still I still have the same level of phosphates (1000). The test results below are from a sample taken this morning.
FC - 2.0
TC - 2.0
pH - 6.8
TA - 90
CH - 250
CYA - 60
Since I want to try the BBB Method I used the Pool Calculator and added 76oz of Borax ( it says 139 oz but I am adding in steps.)
When ever I add my chlorine (http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/pr...004&navAction=), I get a film on the top of the water. You can see it in the picture.
I ordered the TF-100 today to help me in the future.
I have not been able to vacuum since I opened because I cannot see what to vacuum up since the pool has not been clear all year
Any help would be appreciate.
