    green pool and filter problems

    The pool is green we have put in 6 ounces of swimtrine and then doubled shocked for the past 3 days brushing it last 3 days. Jst bought a new haywood motor and new multi port valve. When backing washing the pool do not see any green coming out of the hose just clear water any idea why I am not seeing green coming out of the hose
    The pool is a 16/32 in ground pool chlorine. It has a haywood 1hp motor and a s220t sand filter all haywood equip.

    Hi, welcome to TFP.

    I don't know what swimtrine is, it is not one of the recommended pool chemicals for TFPC. TFP recommends that you buy a really good test kit and maintain your own pool with inexpensive chemicals based on those test results.

    Here is a discussion of Test Kit Comparison. I personally use the TF100 from

    Here are some intros to the basics

    Here are the Recommended Levels for your pool.
