We had a problem with our SWG not working.
Had the cell replaced and salt levels are great, generator working fine now.
HOWEVER, not fixed fast enough as had cloudy green water a week ago.
I'm still fighting this and now the water is much clearer than it was, we can actually see the bottom now. It is a clear
green tint, if that makes sense. I assumed we had algae. I have added chlorine based on the pool calculator and things
are not improving as fast as I'd like. I need more advice.
Our pool company said that we have enough "shock" in there and we need stabilizer, however when they told us that, I had a 0 chlorine reading. I had CYA level checked at Leslies,
they said CYA was 60. When I checked it with your kit (of which I'm out of and need to order refills since doing so much
testing!) Since then we have added stabilizer and our pool company also added it. I understand it takes time for the reading
to adjust. I'm so confused as to what to do next. So frustrating. HELP!
I keep adding chlorine and the readings do not stay stabile and I still have green water.
The latest readings this evening 7:00 p.m.
Salt level 3500....ok
CYA 20 (says the pool store but have added a gallon since)
I used the Pool Calculator and added 246 oz of 6% bleach to bring the level up to 12 for shock level.
I haven't invested in algaecides, as the pool stores try to sell you everything. Would a clarifier help?
We brushed and scrubbed about every surface and vacuumed it today. I was surprised that the bottom and sides of the pool
were very clean feeling prior to the brushing and upon entering the pool,( yes I went in), there was so slippery feeling at all.
I thought algae made the surface slippery?
There is a very strong chlorine smell going on before I just added the recommended 246 oz bleach.
I need advice! Thanks.
