Hi new poster so please bear with me. SWG pool for three years and chemical balance has been a nightmare as it was set up by cowboy firm. Constant problems with mustard algae- initially told it was sand from the filter by two different "experts" but phosphate reduction (sorry!) end of last summer has got on top of this. Super shocked with liquid bleach last week killed off last algal bloom and water was nice and clear and getting ready for action!
As Ph well below range (<6.4) added Ph increaser (couldn't source soda ash so used proprietary blend containing soda ash and baking powder as far as I can tell) and now water is cloudy. Reading though forums I guess this is Ca precipitate as TA high (250+ as we live in chalk area). CY 0 despite adding recently but gather reading may be inaccurate due to Ph level so I'm holding off adding anymore. Now aerating pool, Do I just wait for the cloudiness to clear or do I need to do something more?
Otherwise salt 3500, FC usually 0 unless recently shocked - no doubt due to CY level- and TC 10. Really had been hoping to get SWG working properly this year with balancing Ph but I'm being thwarted at every turn and kids now mutinous as first pool party of year today going ahead without the pool!
Any help appreciated.
