First post here. I have gone through and read quite a bit and I think I am probably more confused than ever. I am having a horrible time trying to clear my pool. It is currently so green that it is almost blue. Or blue-black. Kind of a green-black right now. Generally horrible, so you get the picture. I have tried quite a few things so far. Leslies sold me on the Green-to-Clean **** that didnt do anything. I have poured almost 10 pounds of shock into the pool and it hasnt done anything. Granted, 7 pounds of it was the Home Depot ****, but I have only very recently found out it was ****.
My current readings before I dumped all this in the pool;
I have read a lot about shocking it with plain old bleach and I am very interested in doing this method. I found the pool calculator and it is telling me I need 108oz. Im assuming this will lead to a clear pool? How long will that take? Can anyone offer me any insight? Im really about to fill it with dirt and call it a day. Please help me change my mind!
I also know this has to be one of the most popular topics and I am sorry for adding to the list, but I am finding myself easily lost as this is my first season.
