I'm a long time visitor, new member, and 1st time poster.i have learned more on this site than the pool store could ever teach me. So thank you for that.
15,000G, AG, hayward cartridge, not sure of the speed,6/1/12, 3" pucks, chlorinator
We have had algae come back continuously all summer.. Last year pool was perfect. I opened a crystal clear beautiful pool this spring. took water sample to great escape and they had me add stabilizer. This year it's been cloudy, and algae returns constantly. A few days after treating it i will see piles of what looks like dirt clumped on the floor and BAM! its back! The water right now has a green cast to it and is cloudy. I'm exhausted with the maintenance on this thing. The end of the season is here and I just want to close it. So I have 2 questions. What am I doing wrong and how do I fix my pool? And I feel frustrated and just want to close it...what is the cheapest way given the circumstances? This pool is breaking my bank. Btw.. My pool store did not tell me that pucks raise cya, they tell me that cya has no relationship with chlorine, and they were telling me to use 2 gallons shock to bring my pool to shock levels.. I truly appreciate any help!
