Re: Help - Green clear water - Problems Again
Yesterday morning (May 7th) the water was blue (and it has been blue for several days)
It warmed up and was sunny yesterday and the air temp hit around 70 degrees (I mention this because the pool water warmed up as well)
I returned home from work and the pool had changed to a light, very clear, green
I did a quick PH and TC test and the PH was 7.2 and the TC was at 6. Just to be sure, one again, that this is not an algae problem, I added three 96 OZ jugs of 6% bleach.
This Morning the pool is still clear, light green. And, this morning, I broke out my Full Taylor test kit and took a full set of readings. It is raining lightly.
They are :
TC = 11.5
CC = 0
PH = 7.2
TA = 80
CYA < 30 ( I can still barely make-out the dot with the tube filled to the top)
(Over this past weekend I had vacuumed the pool and added Arm & Hammer to bring the TA up to 80 (from 40) - the pool walls and bottom are nice and clean)
I am assuming, with the high chlorine levels, that this is definitely a metal problem.
I need some advice. I did buy a culator pack from the local Leslies ($25 ouch) and have that in the skimmer, but I understand this will take awhile to help.
Should I add some more Metal Magnet to the pool??????
