Hi. This is my very first pool (that I am attempting to service myself) and my very first post on any forum. Please bear with me and my extreme lack of knowledge.
I own a 10K gallon vinyl Intex pool. I use a saltwater filtration system.
1-My pool has been inundated with TONS of oak leaves in the past few weeks (we need to figure out a convenient way of keeping a pool cover on it).
2-The water is very warm (unfortunately our thermometer just broke) somewhere between 80-90° F
3-The water is beginning to turn green. (like me)
4-Here are our current levels:
ch- almost non-existent (was approx 1.5 about 5 days ago)
total Alk- 150~160
water hardness- 70
cyanuric acid 90~100 (The cyanuric acid was very low (below 40), for a very long time. I just increased it, so this is a new reading)
What should I do? Is it safe to assume that running boost (pretty much 24 hours or more) satlwater filtration is not going to cut it at this point?
I have a chemical that the pool store gave to me, and I'm not sure what the chemical is or what it is used for: GLB Stain Control - Sequa-Sol?
Thank you in advance!!
