I have an inground concrete pool approx 15,000 gallons. Today's Test Results are:
(I took my CL down to zero so that I could use ascorbic acid to remove stains. I did this treatment 4 days ago. Treatment worked well. Also used Metal Out)
My water smells like fish, is cloudy and has bubbles (not air). After the above readings today, I turned the inline chlorinator on 3 and will continue to run the pump. Also put new filters in.
History: CYA was 150 and I had brown stains. I drained pool until CYA came down and CL went to zero. Then balanced PH, TA & TH. Pool has gone 8 days without Chlorine.
Question: Is this why my pool has this overwhelming fishy smell? It has not been hot and it has rained once.
Question: Does this fishy smell mean that I have algae?
