Hello Fellow members and hopefully experts
Usual story; man goes on vacation to return home to swamp. I have a 16'x 48" Intex pool with Steel Pole supports and vinyl lining, so I guess it is around 5000 gals. I have an Intex Sand filter pump that is supposed to pump 1650 gals/hr. Last week I started shocking the pool by adding about 6 bags of Super Sockit a couple every day. I also added two 3in Chlorine tabs to skimmer and two in my prefilter basket. Nothing worked- still dark green. Pump was backflushed several times and replaced with new sand just in case it was bad- no help. I found this forum and tried to start the BBB by adding a total of 7 x 3qts of liquid bleach for the next 3days. My test strip said PH was very high so I added about a half a gal of muriatic acid- still deep green and pump running continuously for past 7 days. Well my TF-100 test kit arrived this afternoon and after some careful testing here are my results:
My daughter is supposed to have a birthday pool party next Saturday. Is there any hope or should I drain and start over?
Thanks for all your help,
