Took a weeks vacation and left our crystal clear pool.
Returned to find a jungle green swamp. My bust. I should have bumped up the chlorine more before we departed and had the neighbors pour some liquid cl.
Commenced the SLAM process immediately after getting the covers off.
Over three days the water rapidly went from jungle, to medium, to very light green. Back washed numerous times. Using DE to assist the sand filter, also. During that process we also gained visibility of all three steps with the top step being clear and the next two blurry.
We maintained a SLAM level for a week before letting the chlorine drift down so we could check the PH.
Three days ago the numbers were.
We re SLAMmed the pool and it passes the OCLT.
Today's numbers are
Our problem is the water looks identical to day three after our alge bloom. What is causing our water to remain cloudy? I have spent a lot of time researching the forums and am only coming up with SLAM the pool. That would be fine if there were any progress being made. However, I don't see any change in the water clarity. And no Cc would seem to mean there is no alge being killed?
Pump has been running in high 24/7.
TF100 test kit.
The pool store is pushing phosphates as the problem. I don't agree.
Any suggestions? Please help us get our clear pool back.
I have an ipad picture but can't figure out how to make it small enough to send.
