Great site I hope you guys can get me squared away. Put up a new 24' AG pool this weekend It has a 22" sand filter with a 1.5hp pump Holds appx 13500 gallons. Ok here are the events as best I remember.
SUN: 12:00pm started filling pool
7opm Had appx 1 foot of water and already has a green tint but can still see bottom.
MON: 3:00pm pool is full still has green water. Its a light army green color. Can use pool brush and can see it
appx 3ft down. Added 2lbs of cal-hyp no color change
3:30pm took water to pool store the only number i came away with was TA 290. Put in 4 gal of muratic
acid. told to return with sample tommorrow.
6:00pm put in 2lbs of cal-hyp
WED 12:00pm had water tested again and was told to put 2more gallons of muratic acid. I mentioned I had
iron stains at home. Put in 1 quart of metal free(phosphate free)
Went to wal-mart and bought 5-way test kit a bunch of bleach, some stabilizer and clairifier
tested water the only numbers I remember are CL 0 ph 6.8
Used pool calculator and put 280oz of bleach and 4lbs of stabilizer(I dont have any cya
numbers I thought i read in here somewhere not to test for a week when using granules)
added 15oz of clarifier I know I know that was my own idea lol
THURS 6:30am cl 4 ph7.0 ta 80 ....added 180 oz of bleach. still no color change in water
11:00am cl appx 10 TA 100 ph 7.2 no change in water
OK guys thats where Im at now. I dont know what else to do other than keep the cl at shock level. It looks like if this was alge there would be some sort of change with all the clorine I have put in it. Also wouldnt it be quick to have alge after just 7 hours of filling from my well?
What should I do now. thanks for any advice
