hello- I am in my second season with my in ground pool- old pool- new owner. Last year (first season) it was really easy, opened it up added some "floc" installed a Natures2 Express silver/copper gadget and the pool was trouble free all summer- shimmering sparkling clear. I couldn't have enjoyed it more and found it was really no work with my "bottom buddy" cleaner for vacuuming and minimal chemicals due to the Natures 2 thing.
THIS year is another story- Season started out normal BUT I bought this stuff from "In the Swim" called Super Clarifier. It did not work at all- not sure why since I followed directions exactly. I waited a week and added an entire bottle of FLOC which is what I used last year. It seems to settle a lot of stuff to the bottom overnight and I vacuumed it out.
But the problem is I can still see particles in the water- which is creating the cloudiness. I have been running the filter for over a week now trying to filter them out AND I have shut it off and tried to let it settle out again- but it doesn't settle out enough to make a big difference. I'm wondering if I should FLOC it again ? Shouldnt my filter be filtering out these particles ?
The pressure of the filter is good- so I think that is in working order. Though I do have 4 german shepherd dogs that are constantly in the pool so i might have a huge dog hair problem (but thats another topic?)
Thanks for any advice- Rose
