Hi there. You saved me last year from pool store he!! - every time I went into the store, they had a new $30 product for me to try to clear up my pool (swamp then). I came here and never looked back. However, I do have 2 new questions this spring as I try to refresh my memory.
One, my ranger pool cleaner and the sides of the pool have a white, gritty, powdery film on them. What is this? We have hard well water, so I am guessing that has something to do with it.
I shocked the pool and kept the level high overnight. The pool is very cloudy (can hardly see the top step of the ladder) but is a pretty teal green rather than an algae green. How do I get from here to clear? Just lots of running the filter for days? Do I need to use clarifier? I switched from DE to sand last summer, so I am still learning how the sand filter works best.
OK, so it wasn't just 2 questions...more like 10. Sorry. )
Thanks for any help you can offer,
