    help - i am totally confused about my pool

    I have a 24 ft x 4 ft round above ground pool and added a saltwater system to it this year. I started out with clear water and everything working fine. After all the rains we got I boosted it like the directions said and now I have too much salt. I don't have to option of letting water out right at the moment, but I monitor the pool everyday. Have changed the filter. I vacuum frequently, but I missed a day of getting in the pool and now I have something growing on the bottom and around the bottom. I think it's algae - but not sure - what do I need to do? I can read the directions but they do not make sense to me. Also what type of vacuum do people use for the size of my pool - I don't have one I am crazy about.
    And also, can someone explain backwash to me? I don't understand that either. I love my pool but it's driving me crazy.
    I have an above ground pool (Intex) that is round, 24 ft x 4 ft. I just added a Krystal clear ozone saltwater system this year. It is setting in the back yard with one tree near and I use the stairs that came with the pool. I want to build a deck in the future, but have not gotten that far.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Unless you added more salt, the level will stay the same. Are you getting your reading from the salt cell or from a test kit?

    To really help, we need an accurate set of test results. Chlorine, CYA and pH to start.
