This is my second year as a bbb. It seems as if im having the same problems as last year, but I just cant clear up the pool this year. First, I have a 10,000 gallon above ground pool, with a doughboy silica 2 sand filter. I have a drop test kit from leslies. Im a little low on funds, so I cant get the tfp kit yet so this will have to do.
numbers as of this afternoon
cya=20(per leslies this weekend, i ran out on my kit)
The pool wasnt closed properly over the winter, no cover, so it was a disgusting mess to open. Thick pea soup is how i can explain it. After removing as much waste as possible, I have been putting in 1 1/2 gallons of 6% bleach once a day. I started this process 2 weeks ago this coming saturday. It has gone from a pea soup to blue/cloudy. I also have a horrible mulberry tree overhead that I have tried to cut back as much as possible, but it still drops loads of berries into the pool.(Its my MIL house, so I cant chop down the tree I use a leaf rake every day and scoop as much of the berries out and then vaccum the rest. I have been stuck on this blue/cloudy for several days and it doesnt seem to be improving. What can I do? Im afraid to go too much higher on the bleach for fear of hurting the liner.
