I had my water balanced earlier in the year and the rains hit so I didnt look after it as I should because every night when it was time to check the pool it was raining.
With that my CYA got diluted and disappeared and with adding no bleach an algae bloom started, imagine that!
I have again started to get my water balanced but it seems to take forever this time. Right now the water is that blueish gray tint and here are my results from this morning.
TA 60 ( little low)
CYA 30 - 35
Been brushing and back washing. How long normally should it take to clear your water after the algae is dead ? My other question is how long does filter sand last ? (I think this is our 4th year with this sand) Should we be thinking about changing it after the season is over ?
Water has been this color for about 4 days now .....what am I missing ?
I have attached a picture so you can see the color of the water.
