Hi. No more "Well you might try this..." $$$$ Found your site....
This is the 4th summer to use our pool. We bought it new from the pool store. They set it up, put in chemicals, said do this, and for 2 years we blindly just did what they said and had a great 2 summers. Last year, the water turned green. I put more $$$ in than I care to admit to and their answer was always "well you might try this..." when it didn't fix whatever problem they then said I had.
So, at the end of last summer, I stumbled upon troublefreepool. I read lots of articles and posts, ordered a TF-100 test kit ....now I just need some personal questions answered.
CYA is between 40 and 50 (closer to 40) - I added stabilizer to get it there a week and a half ago
Today pH is 8.2
Cl is 3
The water is clear but once again I am seeing little patches of something at the bottom of the pool. We noticed that yesterday.
It has rained a lot lately. There are from 6 - 8 people in the pool for 1-2 hours each day most days.
So...what advice can you give me to get/keep it clear and usable.
