Just found this site and hoping someone can help. 27' 52" AG Sand filter Hayward pro series 500g/min with Waterway 1 hp pump in north central Ohio.Due to cool weather we are still opening pool. Started couple weeks ago n are stuck at cloudy blue/green water. Want to cut ties with pool stores as they keep saying pool levels are goodso no advice.
Plan on ordering your recommended test kit but for now these are our levels from 6 way kit:
CYA 0 (added 5 lbs 5 days ago n another 5 lbs 2 days ago so maybe test malfunction as never has shown up?)
Test results from pool store on 7/5
Dissolved solids 900
Sat index 0.3
That nite we added rest of stabilizer. Then last nite added 4 bags (24 oz) black mustard algae magic and 2 bags shock. They said this would turn pool white then would clear out upon vacuuming. Actual result- NO visible change to water appearance but does seem to be holding Cl now which I guess is due to stabilizer.
Can anyone advise us how to clear our pool. We are getting tired of the daily brushing n vacuuming with no results.
