Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and just found it last night and thought I'd give it a try. This year we bought a 16X48 Pro-Series pool for the kids to get use to having a pool before we buy a big one. (I just wanted to make sure I could handle the chemical part) I haven't had too much trouble with it this season other than the last few weeks.
Our pool was a green color and no matter what I did it would stay green. So I googled and found "hth green to blue" so off to Walmart last night and bought it. I read the directions and youtubed it and put it in last night. This morning my pool is green/brown with orange at the bottom!!!!!! I vacuumed it this morning as per the directions and it just looks nasty. I tested it and as always theres no PH, Alkalinity or stabilizer in it but now the FREE Chlorine is between a 3 and 5. (For once it registered there is something in it) When I look closely into the water the stuff I vacuumed off the bottom is all through my pool. I feel defeated and now the kids are crying that I "killed their pool." *Sigh*
Any help would be much appreciated.
