Hi....Let me begin by saying that I started this conversion 2 weeks ago today with the "help" of my local pool store. As I said, I'm now 2 weeks in and still have a green pool. Please help me. I bought a test kit from the store and am able to test, but it's not the really good kit that you all suggest. So I took a sample of my water, again, this morning and here are the latest numbers.
Base Demand: 9
Total Dissolved Solids: 1450
I've dumped three 2.5 gallons of chlorine in since Friday and now the store tells me... 2 more today plus a bag of stop yellow (keeping 3 tablets in the pool/chlorinator as well) and then another jug on Tuesday, Wed bring in a sample. I feel like I'm going nowhere FAST! They say I may have an algae problem that is keeping the pool from holding the chlorine. Any suggestions? I could really use some and a little encouragement.
BTW.....my pool is a 24ft round above ground (12-13000 gallons), cartridge filter
Not sure what other info to add, again, please help a florida girl out. Thanks!
