Blessed to have to have recently purchased a home with a pool, but cursed with some sort of Algae or other problem.
I have been battling with a green ish tinted pool for quite some time, however I am slowly getting better and need some guidance to better understand the problem.
With the Taylor Test Kit I have the following results
FC = 5.5
CC = 0
Ph = 7.6
TA = 100
CA = 200
CYA = 40-50
The Greenish tint started to come in 2 days ago when I noticed Ph went to 7.8 and FC = 3, prior to that FC lingered in the 8 and Ph 7.4-7.6 and was clear.
1.5 Weeks ago I added about 3.5 Gallons of Chlorine and then received my Taylor k2006 kit, which is much more accurate then the Basic kit I was using. The pool cleared up after 2 days, where I changed filter and vac'd often.
I think I have Algae but not sure if it is Green or Yellow-Mustard?
Recommendations for treating the problem?
At what levels should I keep my FC in my pool once I am over my problem (suggested maintenance values for FC, Ph,TA, CA)?
