Hello, I've posted one other time here and we finally did manage to get it within a half an inch level so it's up, we've actually been swimming in it for the last couple of weeks. Then last weekend I noticed it was cloudy. So we added more salt. Then yesterday we found yellow film along the bottom and walls. I vacuumed it but there is so little flow I had to rinse the filter out 4 times and it still wasn't clean. I have literally read so many posts I think I'm more confused on what to do so I thought I could ask for some individualized help. I posted the equipment we have in my signature. Other than adding salt we have done nothing.
Can someone please give me an idea on what I need to do? Specifics as in brand and size/type etc would be SO awesome.
Buy a different filter? (Think I've read that ours is not sufficient and thinking going sand but will that solve the problem)
Shock it? (I've read you can still shock even if your using salt)
Install a new skimmer?
We live in NC, pollen levels are high and we leave it uncovered all the time..... should we cover it?
This site is full of information but I can't make heads of it right now. Thank you to anyone who can help.
