My brother has an 18'x48" AGP, metal sided pool, vinyl liner, 5,000 gallons.
They are having a clouding issue. He had city water brought in on the fire trucks and the water was a yellowish orange color when they filled it. He figured it was rust from the pipes. We added all the basics, stabilizer, algaecide, chlorine(three 3" pucks). From what he told me, he has also shocked the pool and poured in more algaecide last week. The colored water is no more, but its really cloudy now. I had their water tested at the pool store, but don't have all the numbers in front of me. The pool store told me they had copper in the water. So thats probably from the algaecide, correct? They bought a metal remover, but haven't used it yet.
They shocked the pool again last night and these are the numbers I remember her telling me:
CYA iguess was at 0 because she said she filled the tube and could still the dot hazily.
My brother wants to just drain the pool and refill it with well water and start over. Should they? Or where do they go from here? Thanks.
