I have been battling a problem where I cannot keep chlorine in the pool for two years. yesterday I found out why...high nitrate reading. I don't know why the reading is high because I do not fertilize< clean pool etc. Anyway I am 1/2 draing the pool and currently refilling with city water. herin lies the problem or strange situation I have found.
There are millions of clear hairbrush bristle 1-1.5 " plastic looking rods in the pool. Most float at or near the surface and I can't eliminate them. They are brittle and appear to be waxy but I have no idea where they are coming from. ha sanyone experienced this phenom?
Maybe something let loose from the sand filter? Mayabe it's a chemical; reaction? I have no cluse. Please help! Thank you
