This is a two part question, lol. I went a way for a week and when I came back my pool was a greenish, cloudy color so much that I could not see the bottom of the deep end. I figured it was algae since we get a lot of rain and a bunch of leaves from my neighbors tree.
I followed the steps listed in algae removal. All my readings were ok except for CYA.
1. First question, I have added 6 lbs of CYA this summer (switch from baq last year) in a 22,500 octagonal pool. At first I was getting a reading of 25. I checked it this week and it says 0? What happened to it and should I add more? The people at the pool store said no because if I added more it could cloud up my pool and the only way to get rid of it is to drain the pool.
2. I have seen this water clarifier at walmart and wondered if it helps with cloudy water?
