I have a 27' round above ground pool w/sand filter. when we opened it a week ago it was dreadfully green. I have made multiple trips to the pool stores and had water tested. I have finally gotten the green out of the pool but it is still cloudy and despite consistently shocking/w stabilizer for last 3-4 days it (plus at least 6 3' tabs in the skimmer) the pool will not hold chlorine. The ph and TA were normal but now the ph is dropping rapidly also - last test was around 6.4ph and 100 TA
can i add baking soda to raise TA? Should i simply add straight bleach in place of shock and chlorine tabs?
Any advice is appreciated as i am one of the many frustrated pool owners
