I've been fighting my pool for 3 weeks trying to clear it up. Last year used BBB and was able to get it clear in about 1 week - and I think I started with alot more leaves and dirt in the pool then. This year I unfortunately have been out of reagents so Ive been winging it with test strips. Now I have refills so I should have good test results.
Pool started green. After a few days of shocking it turned blue/grey, but cloudy. I have been running my sand filter constantly the entire time. Backwashing every few days (probably a bit too often). I am going to back off the back washing a bit, but it just doesnt seem like my filter is clearing the pool. I have pressure, but am getting alot
of air bubbles out of my deep end jet. I tried a couple cups of DE after the first week but it didnt seem to help much. Fast forward two weeks of on and off shocking.
This morning I backwashed and added some DE. Pressure started at 19psi. Tonight its 26psi.
Evening Test results are:
Added 6x182oz 6% bleach at 9pm. 10pm get the following readings:
Will check in the morning to see where Im at.
