New to pool world and learning a lot... Sometimes painfully! Have index above ground 16 foot pool with salt water system. Been awesome and low maintenance until two weeks of 100 degree weather. The water was looking cloudy and a tint of green... And water boatmen moved in. I read on a forum that algaecide would kill the bugs and take care of green algae. Added 16 oz of algaecide 50% ... Which I've discovered was too much!!! Killed all the bugs and water is clear but now the water feels and taters soapy. When kids splash... Makes small soapy bubbles.
Do I need to drain some water? If so how much.
I tested it and the alkalinity is high. Though I don't feel confidant with my skill at reading the strips!!!
Wishing I wouldn't have added the agaecide!!!
Free chlorine strip is white ... Does that mean zero????
Ph 6.4 to 6.8
Alkalinity 240. ( end color on strip)
Cy acid light yellow. Zero????
