Can anyone tell me what this is? We have had this problem since last summer. We have shocked, SLAM’d the pool, taken out the steps and bleached them, changed the pump and most recently the sand. After the pump runs several hours it’s back! We run the vacuum with filter (Dolphin E10) every couple of days to get it out but it just returns. Our next move will be to drain and refill the pool. (It’s brownish in color)

Your PoolMath logs aren't up to date. Could you post up a current set of test results?
I’m reading this site regarding test kits and I don’t believe we have the recommended kit. We have a 5 way drop kit from Home Depot. When testing it with that Chlorine is 5.0, Bromine is 6.5, PH is 6.8 and Alk is 7.

I'll add that I think it is possible it's just dead green algae, but can't say with any certainty without further data that the test kit will provide.

If it has color, it's alive.
