    Green pool questions

    Our first year opening a pool on our own. We had it cleaned professionally and new water last year with our local pool company. This year we have tried everything to get it Clear with no results. It is a teal blue merky color. We have a 16x32 inground pool. Thank you!!

    Welcome. Sounds like you need to SLAM it as described in Pool School. You'll need a fas-dpd chlorine test to accomplish that. Please read up there on our recommended test kits.
