New this website so bare with me. I have owned over the last 15 years about three pools...all same profile above ground and in the 15-17000 gallon range.
I have been using Namco chemicals every year but this year I decided to go with the recommendations of this website.
OK so lets get you caught up in a nutshell what has happened to me this winter. With the tough New England winter we had this year I had some winter damage to my AG Pool... The damage was not to significant so I was able to repair it on my own, but in the process I had my cover off for about a month with no way to run my filter. The Pool was about 3/4 full and as green as a oak tree leaf in the middle of summer. I filled the pool up the rest of the way with my well last week and started my filter Saturday May 16. I ordered my Taylor test kit on the same day and I have not received it yet so I have been using test strips to try and get me in the ballpark. I have been slamming my pool for 4 days now and I am still green (light green) and very cloudy still, cant see the bottom. I have been brushing and trying to vacuum but I have no Idea what I am doing because I cannot see. My filter has been running non stop since Saturday and my FC is at 10-12...CYA is low but rising at around 29(that's a guess with test strips not being very accurate) I have put around 70 oz of stabilizer so far but I am going slow till I get my test kit.
My question is how long should I expect to slam until I notice a great improvement?... Is a week normal or do I have some other problem that needs to be addressed. The filter seems to be working properly and I just put new sand in it before I started.
Hope I gave enough Info,
