Hello TFP folks! New here so bear with me....
This is my first home and first pool. We have been in the home less than a month! (Holy cow what did I just get myself into)
So we had some good rain here which apparently done something to my pool. I left home to run some errands and the pool looked fine. Came home to a pool that looked more like a pond than a pool! I was only gone a few hours and it appeared to have had some pretty hefty rain by the looks of the streets and yard. (Water puddling).
I have been getting it tested locally through a local pool supply company. All the numbers look good except the chlorine and there is a small trace of copper in the water.
I put a couple of 3" tabs in a floating chlorine container. I ran the pump all night but nothing has changed. I thought that maybe there was some runoff and that it was dirt in the water so I turned off the pump and have let it set for a few hours. I cant tell if it is settling to the bottom or not just yet. It does appear to be clear at the edge of the pool but just for a few inches. There seems to be something settling on the steps going into the pool as well which is what made me think to turn the pump off. I pulled the filter out and used a garden hose to spray it out. THe sediment that I washed out was super fine. Not granulated at all.
Anywho, Here are my test results from 6/07/15
Thanks for any help anyone can give!
