We are first time pool owners (moved in November) and pulled the cover off 2 weeks ago. It was a swamp and we have been skimming, adding chlorine, stabilizer and we just can't seem to get the water clear. It's not green anymore, just cloudy. Here are our levels as of tonight:
FC = 13
CC = 1
CYA = 35
pH = 7.2
The bottom is clear of debris, but we can see the dead algae on the steps. Last weekend we put water clarifier. Today we put sad filter cleaner in. We are buying chlorine at SAMs by the gallon and adding every 1-2 days; the FC level has been between 13-15 for the past week.
