Hope everyone is well. Ok I have read everything I could find about metals, and a clear green tint. Here are my numbers as of today.
hand under water
When we set up/new install and filled with water about a month ago the water was a beautiful blue. We added the amount of bleach we needed per the pool cal. We waited 24 hours and did a test. We needed a little more bleach but so far so good. We noticed the water turned a slight shade of green when we added the bleach. But we figured it was normal because the bleach has a green tint to it anyway and it would go away. We have had no problems with keeping the levels pretty good.
We missed that pretty blue of the liner. So figuring it was metal in the water we went to the local pool store to get some "metal out". We have very soft water here on city water. Iron is not normally a problem here. SO.. I added the metal out per the directions(sprinkling around the edge of the pool). After about 4 hours or so we had the blue back! It looked so good my wife took pictures. LOL We did our test that evening after the sun went down. WOW the FC went down to 1-2. I'm sure that the "metal out" must removed the chorine. I believe the chorine has metal in it right? I added bleach back in to bring the level up and the green came back within an hour. It was funny because when we put the ladder in the pool we could watch each step turn green as we lowered it in.
Anyway sorry it took so long but my question is, are we doing something wrong? Am I missing something?
Thanks for any advice
