~formed new thread ~ Frustrated Pool Mom
I have a 30,000 gallon (think 30) in-ground pool that has just ruined my families summer. The pool was here when we bought house in March but needed sum work, so bout 5,000.00 later had new liner filter ready to go pool filled etc.., oh now time for 1200.00 worth of baquacil for the summer as promoted by local pool store, yea that was the beginning of my end.
Needless to say all the baquacil so called summer supply is gone already plus bout another 1,000.00 in other chemicals trying to keep the baquacil right cuz every week it turned another shade of green. Ive had 2 different types of mold, many different levels of algea etc etc...all BS in my book! I brush and vacuum this pool EVERY morning have only missed maybe once a week due to work so Im doin what the poole guy tells me and still not working.
Started reading forums bout how to get rid of baquacil so confused but so disguisted at this point. Last week shocked the **** out of pool made it foam all up and turn different nasty colors...was alredy green so no big deal...to no prevail the chlorine never even registered on the strip test....so back to different pool store for advice he sent me out door with $100.00 bucket of Non-Chlorine granules says add twice a day to get rid of Baquacil...been doing this for 3days and Baquacil Oxidizer level still HIGH. Its funny becuz when I wanted the Baquacil to work IT DIDNT now that I want rid of it, it is fighting me like crazy! ANNNNYYYYY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
