    Question Please Help asap, day 8 still cannot get water clear??????

    We have tried everything we have thought of, been advised of and read about but there is still tons of this super fine particles that even go through t-shirt fabric and even muslin fabric. On top of that, every morning there are about 1000 new frog eggs in the pool. I am now beginning to wonder if all that fine stuff is frog door doo? When we used a product called sink & sweep the pool was sparkling clear other than these clusters of goo on the bottom. But the vacuum just stirs it back up instead of sucking it up???? Truly at my wits end with the whole thing and about to forget having a pool this year.....

    Regular chemicals
    Type C drop in filter, pump and skimmer basket hang on side of pool, approximately 5000 gallons.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Fine dirt that keeps coming back is often a chemical issue rather than a filtration issue. What level do you keep your chlorine and CYA?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Sounds like there is not enough chlorine in the pool. The recurring dust is likely algae growing and being killed by chlorine, but not completely.

    Here is a Pool School - Guide for Seasonal/Temporary Pools that should get you going in the right direction.

    You should vacuum to waste to get that stuff out of the pool.

    As mentioned, please tell us what test kit you have and post a full set of test results. You are most likely going to need to SLAM that pool.

    If you have frogs using your Pool as a birthing center, you don't have enough chlorine to make it unpleasurable.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
