Our pool became green last week and of course we put in the "shock" bags, the copper based algaecide, etc and our pool is still green.
I found this forum this weekend and went to walmart and bought bleach and baking soda. My pool supply store tested my water this morning and these are the results:
Tot. Chlorine: 5 Their test only goes to 5, so it may be much higher than that.
Free Chlorine: 5
Tot. Alkalinity: 110
Adj. Total Alkalinity: 80
He advised me to add 21 lbs. of baking soda.
I am going to order a test kit this week, but until then, is there anything else I should be doing? I have no idea how much chlorine is actually in the water, but it is still green!
Thanks for any help!
