I have a 16x32 in ground pool, 8 ft deep, vinyl liner. 300 lb sand filter, 8 hr filter run per day on timer. (various times throughout the day) It gets full sun in North Carolina where I live. The pool gets light use, mostly my kids and myself 2 - 3 hrs daily.
I use a Taylor K-2005 kit.
My numbers are -
Temp 84 F
I use liquid bleach as my chlorine, (BBB method) and typically use 32-45 ounces per day trying to keep my target value of 3-4 ppm.
Recently my water has shown some signs of cloudiness and what I believe is algae growth on the sides of the vinyl liner. I had a similar instance a few weeks ago at which time I brushed it, and used 15 ppm bleach to shock it. I believe I am doing something wrong, although I have no clue what. I would think that if my water chemistry numbers are consistantly good, then I shouldn't have any cloudiness or algae issues.
What do you think? Any feedback greatly appreciated!!!
