Hello to everyone!
I just bought my first pool and filled it with water from a well.
First day color was green but not crystal clear:
first thing I lowered the PH, then added a "all in one" product with choc chlorine.
Next day color went greener, so I added more chlorine and it started to turn brown.
today the water is a bit more clear, if I look from near I can see the bottom of the pool, but it's way far to be a nice pool:
so now the questions:
I am using a cartridge filter (with a paper cartridge I guess), rated as 3700lt/hr.
Water passes through filter (it has been turned on all day long yesterday and today it has been on for 10 hours), but when coming out it has the same brownish colour (I can see it through the trasparent pipes).
So it seems like my filter can't remove this particles (but if I clean the cartridge it's brown and water turns immediately very brown, even if the filter was cleaned two hours before).
maybe I should keep it running until the water becomes clear?
what about a sand filter? would it clear this easily? here a sand filter would cost half the cost of the pool. is it worth? will it improve my pool experience, apart from this episode?
