Still have a cloudy green pool!!! Help please!!!
I have an inground pool with a vinyl liner. 25k gallons.
Went on vacation and came back to a green pool. Started treatment on 8/2/12. Today is 8/7 and I can see a little bit of blue tint now, but nevertheless it is still cloudy green.
Pool store water test on 8/2 was as follows:
FAC = 0
TAC = 0
CYA = 30
TA = 90
PH = 7.2
PHO = 1000
Here's what I've done to treat water per pool store:
Increased Ph to 7.8 or higher with Soda Ash
Added product sold to me by pool store called Green To Clean to kill the algae.
Then superchlorinated with 12lbs of ChlorBrite, adding only 4lbs every 12 hours over a 36 hour time frame.
Then on 8/5 I added 10 oz of Ultra Bright Water Clarifier in the afternoon.
On 8/6 backwashed the pool in the morning.
On 8/6 in the evening I added another 10oz. of Ultra Bright Water Clarifier.
I tested the water this morning with my HTH 6 way test strips.
TH = 200
FC = 0
PH = 7.2
TA = 40
CYA = 30-50
Seeing the TA was low, I have added about 3lbs. of Alkalinity Up.
Skimmer baskets are clean. There is not any debris in the pool. Have been running the Polaris occasionally throughout this process. The pump has been running for days now and still not seeing any improvement.
I would really appreciate any advice you can give.
