Hi all ☺
I got an above ground pool a while back and it's been full around 4 days. For some reason I thought it would stay pretty clear for a while without water change etc. I'm after some advice. The pool is a little slimy around the sides and I have been reading up on the BBB method. However I'm in the uk and borax is banned here so cannot get any 😬. I was going to add some bleach this afternoon, and seem as it's seeming like its not going to stay hot too long I was going to try and ride it out until I take it down, however I feel a bit funny about getting in it. I don't have any test strips etc and I don't get paid until next week to get a pool cleaning kit. Anything else I can do in the mean time. The ph level is around 6 by the looks of it on my bog standard ph test strips. Any advice appreciated.
Ps the pool has a filter which I have had on about 5 hours a day. With the 4 hour ish filling time i don't want to empty it and clean it and full it again, especially after the 3 times it was filled and emptied while I figured out the ground wasn't even 😂 dreading the water bill.
