We are having issues with our pool at our new house. The water keeps turning cloudy/green, the vacuum either seems like it's sucking itself to the bottom of the pool or not at all and the pump/filter could or could not be working properly although it doesn't seem like it.
The size of your pool in gallons: we believe around 20,000...the deep end is around 7-8' (diving pool)
If your pool is an AG (above ground) or IG (in ground): in ground
If it's IG, tell us if it's vinyl, plaster/pebble, or fiberglass: plaster
The type filter you have (sand, DE, cartridge): ??? No clue! How do I tell?
If you know, tell us the make and model of your pump and filter: Hayward EcoStar variable speed
List any other equipment you have: SWG, second pump, etc.: all I know is that we have 2 skimmers with the vacuum creepy crawly (we call her Vivian) in one skimmer.
Where do I even begin? So many issues and I don't know where to start!
I tested the water with strips from Leslie's...
FCl 3ppm (in the okay range)
TCl 3ppm (in the okay range)
Alk 180ppm (high?)
pH 7.8 (in the okay range)
TH 0 (I assume this is bad???)
CyA somewhere between 40-100ppm (in the okay range)
I am in Dallas is that matters and have plenty of pics or can take more/video if needed.
Please advise! Your help is greatly appreciated.
