We just purchased our house fall before last (foreclosure), it had a pool, we fired it up last spring and it worked... However it was filled with leaves and stuff, we cleaned and replaced sand, and spent roughly two grand on chemicals, and never had a blue clear pool all last summer, and this summer is starting off the same. 800 into it, still green. We need help and I think our pool guy in town is just enjoying all the money we are giving him... I read some posts the other day about using bleach and started reading about slamming, the only test kit I have is the little dip it sticks, but I have ordered a tf 100, and my dip it stated everything was within normal limits, I tested for phosphates as per a another local store, 300-500. The other store called there help desk and said the same thing add like 20 gallons of bleach... I added 14 yesterday still green and cloudy.... I need help!
