New to this so here goes.
Have a slight algea problem upon startup. The pool was clear until I cleaned the bottom and blushed now it's murky bluish white. My pool is in ground 18 x 36. 22000 gals, vinyl liner. I live in the country and a lot of green around the pool. I have a hayward c900 filter which I'm thinking is way too small for my pool. Put filters in and they last an hour until they need to be cleaned. Clean with TSP or cascade and soak overnight and spend a lot of time cleaning and rinsing. This is driving me nuts. Try to use liquid shock as much as possible but for initial shocking this year I use bagged shock from leslies. I've put six bags in and my chlorine level is 0. Stabilizer is less than 5 since opening the pool yesterday. Alkalinity is 80 and ph is 7.2. Can anyone out there give me some advise on dealing with this continual horror of constant issues with clogging filters and getting balance correct to stop the algae issues. Where should I keep my chlorine level during the season? Filters are almost new.
