I opened my pool after a strange winter here, not cold and practicaly no snow.
We also had unusually hot days early this spring. So the pool had a lot of dirt, leafs and algea, it was dark brown !!
It's also my first year opening it with a salt system.
So I opened it like I did for the last 10 years, and it took 4 days to clear (instead of two the other years), but it was very yellow, the testing indicate a very high level of PH, so I lowered it with acid.
Now the parameters are within limits, the water is clear but it's green like gatorade! and it has a slight smell.
I can't post the water level numbers because here, in Canada, we only have cheap testing kits without level on it.
I found a company that sell a testing kit that seem decent: Hanna HI-3825, here's the link,

Any advice on getting my water recover it's natural color would be very appreciated, also advices on the kit would help me decide to buy it or not.
