I have been given the responsibility of caring for our pool since my father became ill and I have been having a lot of issues that I am sure are a result of my experience and also some post sandy issues that were not addressed initially.
I have an in-ground pool that is approx. 22,000 gallons with a swg with a DE filter. located at the New Jersey shore I have attached pictures that I just took of how everything looks in real time. I actually could not get them to upload so no pictures right now.
The major problems that I have been having is that the pool has been green and the salt level has been very high. The whole area was flooded with ocean water during sandy (approx 6-8 feet of water). My swg generator is telling me that the salt level is 100 and that I need to inspect the cell. Prior to receiving that message I cleaned the cell out with diluted muriatic acid and received that message after hooking it back up. I took a water sample to the local pool store and that told me that the salt reading was 44,000 but that there was no chlorine in the pool? I am not sure if the cell is bad, if ocean water is still affecting the pool, or all of the above? I am looking for any help or ideas that anyone can give me.
