Hello all fellow Pool Owners,
I am struggling through my 4th season with my pool and looking for some help. Here are the pool details.
20x44 inground vinyl lined pool with Auto Cover.
Pentair Intelliflo Pump.
Pentair Sand Dollar 28" 350lb Sand Filter with a fresh batch of Dryden's Activate filter glass.
Pentair 250k Heater.
Pentair Intellitouch Panel.
Dolphin M400 Robotic Cleaner.
The pool has been used with Pool RX Minerals and a Green Smart Ionizer Type system for the last 3 seasons. I have decided to switch over to a normal Chlorine system this year but have had nothing but trouble. First I opened the pool myself and added liquid chlorine at a slower than recommended dose according to the product label. Things were going okay but as I added more chlorine the water started turning greenish brown. I have battled this in the past due to low levels (.9) of Iron in my well water but I use an Iron filter when I add water which normally works. I have been dealing with the pool guys that I had build it but we have come up with no solutions that can get the water cleared up. I have tried many different chemicals and tactics with no good results.
Today the water tested as follows,
Comb Chl 1.62
Through many hours of cleaning, reading and frustrations I am turning to the online community for some help.
