About a month ago I decided to open pool for season. We have a Leisure Riviera 34 fiberglass which holds about 15k gallons and this is the third year we have had it. It had some leaves and algae growth on bottom but after putting several bottles of bleach in the water cleared up. Unfortunately I had arm surgery to repair a torn bicep tendon and was not able to put sand filter back out. It stayed clear but weather got hot and algae grew turning pool green. A couple weeks later I was able to hook up filter and begin circulating water. It did not clear up and my wife thinking she was helping put one quart of HTH super Algaecide in pool. I have never used Wal Mart products but oh well...cannot make wife mad now and blame her more. It worked killing all algae but turned the pool water very cloudy. I have been filtering constantly since then and back washing twice a day. Well Monday I called and order a Taylor T-100 kit and speed stir from Dave. He was so helpful and talked to me for quite a while about pool...what a great example of businessman he is! Well I got the kit super fast and ran all tests. Pool is a little clearer but can only see down about two or three feet. Kids are in it and swimming but I would love to clear it up with any help from all the experts Dave said would lend a hand. Here are my levels:
15 PPM FC
0. PPM CC
15 PPM TC
I am working on lowering PH to eliminate scale spots on pool after conversation with Dave. What else needs done to get this pool sparkling again? And sorry but I have no pool maintenance people within 75 miles...yes I am in the sticks in the Ozarks of Missouri.
