Bought a foreclosure, uncovered a murky green swamp, initially tried the pool first aid and dichlor, made some difference but then. blah.
cleaned out all the junk, was running pump 24/7 and pump went out, ugh!
stopped everything, waited for new pump then found TFP WHEEEW!
got new pump, went to wally world got bleach, borax, and BS, put new pump on old housing, bubbles, bubbles (was the pump housing of course) cut PVC added new housing, back to running smmoth.
using Taylor 2006 kit for testing
tried a copper based algaecide also and wasn't paying enough attention to my water (dumb) and then shocked I think i have metal stains on the walls and fiberglass stairs. I tried the AA test with a Vitamin C tab and it turned the spot bright white? so have ordered the AA to try it after I get the water clear and blue? I tend to bounce around its my ADHD I think. I have well water and added it to the pool already, not sure if that was a big mistake since i think the stains are from the well water?
1.the stuff to take the metal out Sequestrants, can you add them anytime?
2. how long should I expect to wait to see blue water?
