Hi all! Long time reader, first time poster. Just bought a new pool and finished filling it an hour ago, thought I would share the results PRIOR to any chemical additives. This is water straight from our outside tap, municipal water supply. This is our second pool (slightly larger) and I will be using the BBB method since it worked to keep our other pool crystal clear for 2 summers.
Haven't run any tests just yet, I'm off to the store later for more supplies. Fairly certain this is a chloramine issue as we have no copper tubing anywhere in our water supply. (Husband replaced all water lines when we moved in.)
Intex ABG pool 14' X 48"
Nifty green water!
Turned the outflow upwards to aerate as much as possible.
My shadow...water is a clear green.
Neighbor's tree in background for color comparison.
This pool will have a large canopy over it (like our old one) as soon as I get everything stabilized. Wish me luck! This is the first time I've started with a green fill. Water has been nice and clear in the past... will update soon. (Hopefully with good results!)
