So, I opened my pool this year and it was a swampy mess because I did not have time to put a cover on it which was a very big mistake. Basically to make a long story short I converted the pool over to a SWG. I have a 40,000 gallon gunite pool that is painted in epoxy and I am using 2 Saltron Retro's. These are not inline salt generators. You may ask why not an inline generator. It is because my pump is above my pool and I have a back flow valve to keep the pump from draining. After a while the water will drain and because of this I cannot keep the pump on a timer, so I need chlorine to be generating even when the pump is not on when I am on vacation.
Basically I finally got rid of the algae and my pool water is clear with a slight cloudiness to it. I can see straight to the bottom of the pool, but the second the SWG's turn on there is this white milkiness that forms over the top of the water.
I have read on the forums that this may have something to do with hydrogen.
I did put alga-side in Algae Eliminator Max by Aqua Chem when opening the pool, but it says it is non-foaming. I thought this might be the issue initially, but it has been well over 1.5 weeks since I did that.
I did notice there are bubbles in my pump basket and I looked at the outlet above my pump basket and noticed there is a very slow water leak there.
What in the world is causing this, could it be the slow water leak and the hydrogen?
