I have been battling a green pool since the beginning of summer. I needed a new filter and by the time I installed it, it was slim green.
It's been about a week of SLAMing the pool and I have gotten the water to look teal, but it is still cloudy. I ran out of Cl indicator yesterday and now I am flying blind. I should get some either today or tomorrow.
I checked my cyanauric acid level last week and it seemed low. (about 15). I checked again this morning and it was at about 25 ppm.
I was maintaining the FC level at 14 -15 ppm and CC at 0.5 - 1.0.
I also have brushed it several times
I am running the pool filter 24/7 but it doesn't seem to be clearing up at all.
I can send you the data I have been recording if it would help.
Here are my questions:
how much liquid chlorine (8.25%) should I add daily as I wait for my Cl indicator solution?
is my cyanauric acid level low and should I add some at this point?
should I run my variable speed pump full throttle, or on low?
should I turn the pump off overnight to let the particulates settle out?
should I add some DE to the filter?
what about adding a flocking agent?
