I have been dealing with what I believe to be an algae problem for the 2 months. It all started when I covered my pool with a solar cover in Sept. I have been battling green, cloudy water ever since. After a variety of pool store chem analysis and adding lots of chemicals to fix the problem, I just received my new chemistry kit from you guys and I now have the data to address the problem.
I have been running the pump almost 24/7.
My water chemistry as of today is as follows:
FC = 23
CC = 0
TC = 22
pH = 7.2
TA = 120
CYA = 40
The water is still very cloudy, but the green has turned to a milky color.
I think I'm headed in the right direction with the chemistry, but it may take more time for the sand filter to remove the particulates. Is there anything I can add that will help speed up the process? DE to the skimmers? I also have a powder product that is supposed to enhance the filtration effectiveness by adding it to the skimmer.
Can you advise? I really need to get this pool closed. I've been lucky so far that the leaves are just starting to fall.
