    Stubborn Green Pool

    Thank you..are you referring to staining from the copper or all that dark green algae? I'm going out to scrub and vacuum in about an hour. Even though I can't see what I am vacuuming - anything I get out is a plus! :)

    Stubborn Green Pool

    Hello!! I have a 30ft. above ground pool in North Mississippi. We had about 5 straight days of rain and torrential down pours. There is a 30ft Cedar Tree about 20 feet from my pool so I'm guessing this is my problem. I balanced my water using Pool Math Calculator...shocked accordingly with...

    thank you for your input.. what is so baffling is it only gets used about once a week by me and possibly my sister! I will switch to the liquid chlorine - do you suggest draining and starting over?

    Closing my first pool

    I am getting ready close my 30' above ground pool. The CYA is kinda high at 80 and I was wondering if I need to drain and refill now or can is wait until I re-open my pool in the spring? Thanks

    HI..So i finally got my pool installed in August (my first). Didn't think ahead about the bugs that would also like to share my pool. I live in N. Mississippi..in the country over a lake surrounded by heavy woods. So bugs aplenty. I tried the Black Flag bug zapper which only attracted moths as...

    Question: Weekly Tests notes the TA for Manually chlorinated pools at 100-120 ppm so at 110 my TA is good but in Pool Math the recommended target is 50-90ppm.. What should I shoot for? Thanks

    Shocking New Pool

    We finally got the new pool filled. However it took a while and with rain we have algae. During the fill we kept chlorine in the pool with some CYA and brushed it every day so the ins't any rings or slimy feel to the vinyl. The pool is clear enough to see sides and bottom but green tint...

    Still Filling Pool

    I am on a well but haven't been able to run all day every day due to work...dogs might knock hose out etc. I am at 32" now so probably one more day.. Just did chlorine only test and it is a 4 ppm so probably don't need CYA now. The pool gets full sun so that will more than likely drop by...
