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.
