This is my first post to TFP, so please bear with me. I've read many posts on dealing with a green pool and I really have read Pool School but... I'm just not sure exactly what I should do to deal with my issue. I've got an Intex 16x48 above ground vinyl pool, which is about 5500 gallons. I do have a SWG system and I've been loving it. The past few weeks, the water was getting cloudy but I was keeping it in check. Then the power went out and when it came back on, I completely forgot to reset the pool power. The kids and I were too busy to get outside and the pool got to sit in 90+ weather, just stagnating. Ick! Now it's very green and I simply don't know what to do about it. It doesn't help that it's been hot and raining here too!
I'm using the Taylor K2006 FAS-DPD test kit that is recommended here, and here are my numbers:
TA: 30 (but the kit said the water should turn "red" during the test. I kept adding and adding drops, but it always stayed pink. See, I said I was clueless...
I'm the kind of person who loves being told exactly what to do, so if y'all can help, I promise I'll follow your advice!
