Read about bromine (although not well enough) and decided to use it in my above ground pool. WRONG! Water turned disgusting. Called the place I purchased the bromine and they told me to let the bromine level drop to zero then just start adding chlorine. Well I did just as they suggested and my pool still looked awful. I used an algeaside, pH plus, Alkaline plus and stabilizer. When I used the stabilizer the bromine went off the charts. I call them back and was told I had to change the median in my sand filter drain the pool some and refill it. I called the place where I purchased the pool and they said they don't use bromine on pools so they couldn't help me. It's the end of July and my kids can't swim because I'm afraid to let them. My husband is madder that ever about all of this and I don't know what to do. Please help me . Thank you!
