Renting a house with a pool and opened to a green mess.....read this forum first (thank god).
I don't have the good test kit yet - have it ordered. But was a nice shade of emerald green and I know there are leaves under there some where! Just can see them yet, have scooped out as much as we could without seeing whats going on.
I have added the Stabilizer and liquid shock. Had to backwash every hour so moved to recirculate for 2 days - water is blue but cloudy. Back washed and moved to filter for 2 days. I think I am on the right track.
Readings with kit I have are as follows:
FC - 5
PH - 7.5
TA - 120
CYA - 20
Thanks in advance!
