Ok so you can see by the pics we are almost there. Now that the water is finally clear I can see I have a pretty stubborn algae mark all the way around the pool where the vertical wall meets the sloping part of the floor. Have brushed it once this morning and plan to do so every couple of hours. CYA is now bellow 20 because I have had to back wash so often. Am refilling water now. Plan to boost CYA today also. This has been one heck of a process and should serve as a warning to anyone who has followed this thread NEVER LET YOUR POOL GET THIS BAD!!!! As you know I did not neglect this pool like this. I bought this house with a severely neglected pool, but I assure you it will never be In that shape again. Thanks for all the help from this site and it’s supporters. I think we are almost there!!!!!

Now lets talk about the line.............I would fill your pool so the water is over that line good then take the FC up to SLAM level for a while. That will help get rid of that line is my thinking well that and you brushing LOL

Now go enjoy looking at the while yo have a beer as it IS 5:00 somewhere!!

The pool looks mah-va-las dahlink!

This was a long SLAM, admittedly. It seems like your filter sand was kaput (possibly strange chemicals prior owners used) and I can see the new sand has really improved things.

So happy for you! Cheers!

Ok so went down to take a sample of water before bed. Had to share with you guys because my pool looks beautiful, and I could not have done this without y’all's help. Thanks so much for helping me turn my green pond into a beautiful pool!!! I feel as though I have found some amazing people who did not have to help me but did so because they enjoy it. Thanks soo much!!! " and if anyone knows why my pics are loading sideways please let me know.....

I have a call into our IT guy to "fix" your pics. It is not you, it is a server thing. He will fix them for you.
