Working on getting the pool ready for the season. Long story short... Horrible algae grown over the winter. SLAMed for 12 days at 28-32 ppm. CYA at 35 or so at that time. Since then I cannot get the water clear. Cloudy, I hate it. It is now 29 days later. Levels are as follows.
CYA 50 Increasing slowly to 75
I have used that DE alternative **** from Leslie's. It seemed to work for a while, then I didn't feel right about it. I am getting DE tomorrow. On a side note; their water testing is interesting... Capping test containers with his fingers, that have visible dirt and who knows what on them. All of the water testing equipment was visibly dirty and what looked like hard water build-up on them. Am I just anal? I rinse and towel dry everything after use.
Anyway. I have never gotten this pool as clear as I would like. At the moment it is very cloudy. I will post a couple of pictures. Any ideas would be great.
