Help, we have thankfully found your site. We have a 29000 gallon round above ground pool, 33' diameter and 54" deep, and our water has been either green or gray and cloudy depending on the day, since we opened the pool. Mid July and we have yet to be able to swim. We live in south east Ohio. Per your suggestions we bought and used a test kit after dumping almost $1000 in chemicals from the pool stores into the pool and nothing is working. Vacuumed, brushed , everything they told us to do. They always say our water tests perfectly but it is still green and cloudy. Used the test kit and results are as follows
Chlorine is at 5ppm
According to the pool calculator on your site we need to replace 78% of our water to lower hardness but how do we know the hardness of the water we are putting in from our hose? If it tests as too hard, what do we do next?
We are desperate and ready to just give up!
