    walls start turning yellow

    All my chemicals are good. They all stay withing range of the suggested levels on this site. I haven't had many problems over the last few years but at the end of last year i started noticing after about a week of not vacuuming the walls would start to turn yellow. its been the same way all year this year. Its really irritating because before I could go weeks without vacuuming and my water would stay crystal clear and i would vacuum due to leaves in the pool not because of the algae look to it unlike this year. Here is a pic of it starting to do it. it may be kind of hard to see. Any ideas of what could be causing this or what i could do to fix it? Thanks in advance!! photo.jpg

    Could you post up a set of test results, in case your missing something in the results ? The more eyes on your test results can help in seeing something that you could be missing. Test results tell a story !
    The spots in your pool don't look yellow to me. They look darker. Are they green ? 😎

    The black spots are leaves that I havent vacumed out yet. The walls are a yellow to light green color. when you brush them it looks like green fog coming off the walls.

    I'm thinking you should SLAM the pool if it's looking green. Has your FC ever been below the min of 4 ?
    I would at least do an OCLT Test to confirm organics or not. 😎
