I had a major algae problem and transformed my “green swamp” into almost clear water. It still has a slight sea green tint to it. My chlorine levels are within range. As is the PH and alkalinity. My method to turning it from green to almost clean consists of 2lbs. Yellow Out algae killer/ 2lbs chlorine. After 12 hours another 2lbs., then after 12 hours 5lbs of alum, let it settle out overnight, vac that to waste. Ran the pump for 8 hours last night and on into the early morning hours. I’m completely stumped and I’ve dumped a lot of money and time into this pool this season.
Approximately 10K gallons of water
Temps have been topping 100 degrees lately
Blue Haven pools 175 series cartridge filter
If my filters have gone bad, will the filter just be clear? I clean them about 5 times a day and they have visible green algae wash out of them.
I’ve read so many articles lately on this subject and can’t get a solid method to clear it up. I’m on the way to the pool store to have them test the water, in case my testing kit is severely dated. These guys have also been running me in circles as far as this chemical and that chemical which add up to big money. They told me to use “Ultra water clarifier”, that didn’t do a **** thing.
I’m turning to the experts around here to hopefully point me in the right direction before I pull my hair out and drain my wallet.
