I have been fighting algae all summer. We have not even been able to use our pool yet. The pool supply store tested my water, and everything was in the normal range except pH and chlorine. I tried to raise pH enough to start the process that they said would clear up my pool. I used Green to Clean and shocked the pool with 2 lbs of shock twice a day for 3 days. The greenish tint was still in my water, so I took another water sample in. All readings were normal this time except for pH. It was 7.2. They tested my water for metals and said there were none present. I added 10 lbs of soda ash over the past week, and my pH is still around 7.2. The chlorine level is now up at 10 because I am still trying to get rid of the greenish tint to the water. However, I am not able to raise my pH levels at all. I cannot even see the bottom of my pool. Is there any hope of getting clear water within a reasonable amount of time?
