New pool owner. Set up pool at end of March and things have been on and off with the pool. Some days the pool looks great, but most of the past few weeks, not so blue. Had first algae issue a month ago, got that all cleared up. For the past week though the water has turned cloudy. Have not had any success in getting it cleared up. Wake up this morning, and the green has returned. Put in more algaecide before work today so I will see what happens when I get home.
Now for the toughest part, I do not have ANY reliable results as all the testing that I have been doing so far has been from the pool store. They helped me getting the pool set up and even clearing out the first algae issue but now it is is becoming more of an issue with them.
With that being said: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
I am going to purchase my own test kit (one of the recommended ones on this site). I am also considering upgrading to at least an 1500gph pump.
