    Thank you for replying. I will try the polyfil. The water just looks so gross! Is metal out bad to use?

    FC- 8 CC- 0 CYA- ran out of solution but last I checked was under 30. Have not added any since. TA- 150 pH- 7.5 Pool water about 80 degrees The water is clear green. Not just a tinge green- very green but I can completely see through it. When I drained and filled my pool just over 3 weeks ago...

    Fresh fill- where to start?

    Okay, so just space them apart a bit. As for the pH reducer, I have some pH minus(dry) will that work just as well as muriatic acid? Do I just dissolve in bucket first?

    Fresh fill- where to start?

    So I completely drained my pool and refilled. pH 8.0 TA 180 CH 80 (is this something I really need to worry about with the type if pool I have?) CYA l, FC and CC are 0 since I have not added any chemicals yet. I know pH and TA are directly related. Lowering pH should lower TA, correct? So I...

    Okay. I will look at it when I get home. Thanks for all the help. I hope to get the pool set up the right way and never have to deal with this mess again!

    We do not have sewer, we are hooked up to the city system for that.

    It's probably about 100 feet. Our land is pretty flat. We have a pump that you submerge underwater to drain areas. We bought when our basement flooded a few years ago. Could that work?

    I'm in a village technically. I have a half acre of land but it's long and narrow so neighbors are close. No sidewalks, we have a drainage ditch.

    How do you suggest I drain the water? So I can direct where I want it to go.

    No the filter did not come with. It said it was rated for over 15k gallons and my pool is about 13k. It is much faster and stronger than the original pump but the cartridge seems to clog quickly. I clean it at least once daily. Yesterday I did twice.

    I'm actually at work right now. I can post a picture when I get home around 5. I'm just getting so frustrated. My kids want swim!

    I have well water. We filled the pool last year, half off the well and half with a water truck but that was pricey. I could possibly drain half the pool. How would you suggest directing the water flow while draining?

    Cloudy green pool STILL

    There have been times that I check the filter and the return jet is very slow, almost no flow. So I clean the filter and it returns to normal flow. Maybe that could be contributing?

    In total, I have probably added 4 cases of 12.5%. 4 gallons in a case. I brought CYA up on the first day. The pump I have does not have a pressure gauge.

    Cloudy green pool STILL

    On days that I work, I test it at least twice. Otherwise I test it about 4 times a day. One morning I tested it was 18, that was the lowest it has gotten. The last few times it has only dropped to 21. I always add more chlorine than what pool math says so it doesn't drop too much while sleeping...

My SLAM level for FC is 24 and have been keeping up with that testing the water at least twice a day, more if I am...

    I just updated it. It's about 13k gallons and a 2000gph cartridge filter pump. No skimmer, although we just about the Hayward through the wall, it's just not hooked up yet.

    Hello and thanks in advance! So we have a 24x52 summer waves pool that we bought last year. This was our first season opening and we did not properly close it last year. A mistake I will not make again. Anyway, after opening, the pool was extremely dark and could we not see anything. We leaf...
