I have an approx 31,000-33,000 Guinite pool w/ sand filter that is causing me headaches. I have yet to get it clear after being opened for a month. Last week the pool totally turned green on me. It was never clear since I opened it. However the swamp as my family called it was terrible. I have been using slow jumbo tabs since I opened the pool. IN addition, I have been pooring in a few gallons of Bleach each night for the past week. (The first night after the "greenout" I added 4 bags of shock as well as 3 gallons of bleach).
My levels are as follows:
Total chlorine 1.6
Free Chlorine 1.6
My pool is cloudy and the deep end is still green. I believe I have a lot of dead algea. I called the pool guy who opened my pool and he said that he can not power vac the pool until he can see the bottom of the deep end. It seems like a circular equation here. The pool is not clear because of the algea, but he can't vac the pool until it is clear.
I have the pool running about 18 hours a day and I have backwashed for a few minutes every other day. The shallow area is clearly much better then last weekend but not good enough. I can only see about 4-5 in the deepend (when I lower the net).
Any help would be appreciated!!!! I want to use my pool already!
