Just had my water tested at Leslie's Pool
FAC-.5
TAC-.5
PH-7.6
TA-140
CYA-.30
TDS-1900
My pool is Fiberglass they told me I have to partly empty the pool to get my TDS down to at least 1500. My water is discolored green. So what would you suggest.

Re: Nature2

Martic welcome to TFP.

Are you using a nature2? You should post your own topic and specify the background behind your issues...there are many causes for your water to go green. You can disregard TDS...your FC is too low.

Please take a moment to read pool school and familiarize yourself with the forum rules/etiquette before posting.

Hey,

You do not have to empty any part of your pool. TDS is irrelevant (yours isn't even high.)

You have no chlorine in your pool and have algae as a result. How have you been chlorinating to this point?
