First time on this site. Very informative. Have an 18x 36 IG W/Deep End , 5TH season. Took off the mesh cover this year to find the pool looking just as it did all other years, green and murky.
This year I can't seem to get the water to be clear. The green algae cleared up with the pool openight package from Litehouse. Cart filter cleaned regularaly. I have had the pool in operation for about 3 weeks w pump/filter running almost continuously and don't know what to do to get the water clear....can barely see the shallow end bottom and definitely cannot see the deep end.
The pool was closed earlier than normal last year and some warmer weather came after the closing. Took water sample to Litehouse and had it tested. Alkalinity was low and added alk increaser and bromine level was high....brought that down. Bromine/alk/pH, all appear now to be in normal range.
I am concerned that this may be dead algae in small particles not filtering out. I am getting close to draining and starting over.
Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
