I joined hoping for some help that I am not finding locally.
I have a 12000 gallon above ground pool. At the beginning of pool season we discovered our filter had stopped working, which lead to a very swampy pool.
We have since treated it for algae, shocked the heck out of it, got all of our chemicals in balance and yet I cannot get the water to not be cloudy.
We are cleaning and manual vacuum frequently. I don't know what else to do at this point.
Our sand filter is probably a mid 80's era. I have no idea if the sand has ever been changed, as far as function it seems to be working as expected. We used a cleaning agent a few weeks ago hoping to clear this up.
In the last week we have seen slight improvement, we can now see two steps down on our ladder from barely seeing the top step.
Help? Suggestions? I can do pictures and chem readings..........
