I just purchased a house with a huge pool that was not maintained for more than a year, the pool was totaly covered in green algea and filthy.
I have shock treated it numerous times and brushed the floor clean and finaly got the water looking better but now i have all this dead white algea floating in the water causing it to be very murky , so murky that you cannot see the creepy on the bottom of the pool.
I have taken water samples in for testing and purchased the recommended products but they do not help remove the white particles.
When the pump is on filter you can actualy see the white particles shooting out the water jet into the pool, this tells me the filter is not catching the tiny white particles like it should.
The filter is a sand filter , my next step is to change the sand but if that doesnt work i would like to know what else i can try?, I am on the verge of completely draining my pool , all 100 000 litres of it.
Please any advice would greatly be appreciated.
