Hi Friends, I have been trying to get our pool cleared up for about a month. Went from green swamp frog pond, vacuumed, added algaecide from neighbors to get cloudy gray/blue, multiple pool store concoctions continued cloudy blue to green. Found this site about 3 weeks ago. Have my TF-100, and have been slamming for a week thinking I have mustard algae.
As of this afternoon the water is more clear; I can see down about 5 feet, but the pool is green and has been for about a week, with particulate on the bottom and sides. I have been keeping FC at 24 when possible, but it has dropped to 15 in the afternoon. Mostly steady over night. I have been brushing the entire pool one to two times per day and getting lots of powdery brownish/yellowish/greenish algae looking stuff that again clouds up the water. I suspect my sand filter is not up to the job, but need your input on that.
I know that one of the algaecides I added had copper in it, and I bought one measly quart of Jack's pink stuff, but upon reading the instructions realize that if copper is the issue I am going to need a lot more and so am not going to start on that just yet.
This coming week our temps will be in the triple digits here in Eastern Washington and I am REALLY going to need to get in the pool!
Any advice? Thanks in advance!!!
