Im fairly new to maintaining the pool but have taken several trips to Leslie pools for help. Ive been pretty good at keeping the pool levels ideal but we got some rain 3 days in a row and now my pool is GREEN. I took some of my pool water to Leslie Pools they said everything was great except my chlorine and phosphate levels, gave me what i needed and sent me on my way..i followed the directions but i am having no luck. I shocked two days in a row and my chlorine levels are white on my test strips. I would really like to get the pool going for this weekend since it is the fourth of july but i am getting discouraged and almost want to drain the pool and refill it but i want to wait til thats my last resort. Ive also tried reading up about this slamming process but I guess im just not understanding the ling very well, could someone please help me and break it down for me.
