Sorry, I am clueless right now. I had a contractor install an above ground pool bought from Doheny's. It took them 3 weeks to figure out how to install it and about 2 feet of water sat there for a while, probably 2 weeks. They finally got the pump in and it started yesterday. We have 10,000 gallons of green water now. I have used spring algaecide (from Doheny's) and then also algaecide plus yesterday. My chemistry today:
FC = 3 (was a 5 yesterday)
CH = 375
TA = 250
PH = 7.8
Stablilizer = 30-50
I am using both test strips and a test kit (TF100? I think its called)
I can see the bottom of the pool, but it is green. My DE filter has been running since yesterday, but this morning the pump had stopped overnight and i had to "regenerate" it. (by the way - is there a power button or is turning pump off only done by unplugging it? - Hayward DE pump).
The contractor said there is no way to empty water without getting a sump pump? Is my best option to empty this pool and start over?
