I didn't have a winter cover for my pool.. (will be buying one this year) and my filter didn't work when the ice melted.
When I got a new filter (18" hayward pro sand filter 250lbs of sand) dumped some bleach actually about 10 ltrs. of 12%i n the pool, and started the filter, the pool went black within the next couple days. i figured the dirt and stuff on the bottom made it go black, so I used a leaf catcher and ran it around till I wasnt getting any more leafs and been vacumming almost every day. then it went a dark brown/orange color ( i have well water with high iron) last night it seemed to be clearing up.. just foggy, and put some CL in the pool (been keeping CL between 10-12ppm. adding before I leave for work, and when I get home.) anyways today I get home, and pool is a lovely lime green.. i'm starting to get depressed.. been fighting this for nearly 2 weeks now...
here were my numbers when I got home
CYA 25? (could barely see dot at 30) added a few more drops and disapeared - also just added some more on friday. may not follow be showing yet.
after testing I added ~2L of MA, and 1.5L of 12% CL
basicly.. am I on the right track? I'm getting depressed, and thinking of just driving a car into the side of my pool or something.
