my wife has my laptop so I am writing this on an iPad....sorry in advance
Bought a new house and ran into issue after issue with the backyard pool. I read and googled and read some more. Most of my reading was on this site. Went from an emerald green algae infested pool to ALMOST clear pool. I shocked the heck out of the pool and turned it blue. After cleaning my DE filter I noticed I was putting DE back in the pool. So more reading and googling. After trial and error I decided to buy new filters and vacuuming twice this week, I think I have fixed that issue. I can see that there is a bottom to the pool and it is not white and dusty!
Without knowing you guys really helped me out A LOT! I suspect I will have a clear pool by next weekend. I thank all of you, some had the same problems I have encountered and others have helped. Without you I probably would have filled it in! Once again thanks for the awesome forum!
