Hello, I am new to this forum. Just got an Intex Easy set pool 18'x48'' above ground for grandkids. Started filling on Sunday, July 13 with well water as we are in the country. There was a leak around the filter so had to contact the company for a part. continued filling for a couple days so we would not burn up the pump on the well. Did not add any chlorine or start filter till Thursday, July 17 when the water seemed to be getting cloudy and green. Hubby was working on getting a plug out to the pool area. Added liquid chlorine, stabilizer, and acid re pool store recommendation. Water did not clear up. Have been working on getting the water levels correct, but were out of town for a week for a funeral. Had my daughter add chlorine while we were gone. Filter has been running 24/7. levels today, 7/26 are
ph 8.4 FC 3 TA 240 Stabilizer (which I think is CYA?) 100
Went to the Pool Math calculator and for 5,500 gallons added 3 cups 3 oz. 12% liquid chlorine and 3 cups muratic acid 31.45%.
Filter is running. Any suggestions? I am hoping to be able to let them swim sometime soon!!
Thanks for any help. Tutu.smith
