I need HELP!!! I have an above ground pool. 27' I think. My filter is a hayward sand filter. We drained most of the water and filled it from water transport because we didn't have a cover on it during winter so the water was filled with beetles and green algae. For the past 2 weeks we have put algaecide and shock in it on a regular basis because the water is blue with chunks of algae floating in it and we can't see the bottom. We tried clarifier also. The ph is low but the chlorine is ok...Today I found muddy muck on the bottom...A LOT...we live on a dirt road but shouldn't the filter take care of all the dirt???? If the problem is the filter then how do I know what needs fixed??? Nothing is leaking but there is water laying on the top of the Vari-flow valve....which normally happens when I backwash it..
Sooo grossed out
