Would like to get some insight into opening and finally balancing our above ground pool ( i think the specs are in the signature)
For the last 2 weeks, my wife has battled green algae with about 30 gallons of bleach. She changed the sand this year and we have moved from a permasalt system to a traditional chlorine setup.
A few problems she is having that I can't seem to put my finger on are: 1. Chlorine is back at zero by the next day, even at levels north of 15ppm. calcium is low, alkalinity is low as well. I have test measurements from the pool store using a ClearCare Expert analysis system (not sure if that matters)
I wish I could help her, but I'm on the other side of the country for military purposes. This is frustrating to try to help her via telephone.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks. on to the results...
Copper 0 (thank god)
Saturation Index -0.5 (says that level is corrosive)
