    Re: Pool cloudy and going green, help please.

    Adjust the pH 7.2/7.4 and start your SLAM http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...tain-shockingl

    Welcome to the forum.

    You must know where you are before you can get where you want to be.....i.e. a complete set of test results to establish your current condition and then the SLAM process, followed precisely as outlined in Pool School.

    Forgot my manners. Welcome to the forum Sarah

    That and do you have a good test kit yet ?
    You are going to need one to do a proper SLAM. A TF-100 or K2006 that can do FAS-DPD. I have the TF100 and it's what most here recommend.

    Agreed with all points provided thus far. Don't go nuclear til you know where you're going.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
