New owner of a house with an AG pool. Have NEVER owned a pool, know nothing about pools (except I like to swim in them) and this one was a complete swamp.
Ive done everything the guys at the pool stores have told me and NOTHING was making this water clear. Nothing. So I went hardcore and put FLOC in, via advice from some dude on youtube. I see now this may not have been the right thing.
Anyway, the next morning GLORIOUS GLORIOUS clarity! Huzzah! Except the nasty blob of green algae at the bottom of the pool. Vacuum it up NO PROBLEM right? Well, as I begin this process it seems all the nasty is blowing back through the return. Pool cloudy again. This morning, a neat pile of nasty green algae once again, in the center of my pool. As large as before.
DID I remove ANY OF IT or just circulate it back into the pool? How do I remove this gunk? Please, speak like you are talking to an infant because if it gets too technical I get lost. I know a few terms and words now in Pool-ese but not much.... I tried to put as much info as I am aware of in the signature.
Also, I checked the numbers 30 seconds ago and my available info is:
Chlorine: between 5 and 10 (closer to 10)
just with those little pool strips. Nothing fancier.
Thank you, Jen
