Hi all-- I am beginning to see a green yellowish color on the bottom of my pool, which is resulting in greenish-tinted cloudy/hazy water. My current readings from Bioguard's ALEX system are as follows:
Total Chlorine: 4.1
Free Chlorine: 4.1
Total alkalinity: 168
Adj. Total Alk: 141
Total Hardness: 221
I also tried to get my water tested at Leslie's, however, they refuse to test since my chlorine is too high, not sure why my other pool store not mention this. Can someone else confirm if my readings are good? I have recently been having too high of pH and had to add 4.5 lbs of Lo N' Slo (Dry Acid) last night. Hopefully, my pH is correct.
Can someone please tell me in the pictures if I am developing green or yellow algae, and what steps I should take to remove them? My chlorine levels seem to be fine, so I am not sure why I would be developing any algae.
