Trying to fix algae/cloudy problem

Postby Nobodyfresh82 » Sun 02 Aug, 2020 15:23

I have a 14 foot Circular above ground intex pool 42" deep. I have a intex pump. The pool holds 3357 gallons.

We got a lot of rain the last week or so and my chlorine levels dropped drastically.

Looked like I was getting some algae (I think). I shocked the pool. But it persisted.

I shocked it again and got the ph up as well and added stabilizer.

My levels are getting normal now. I also used htg super algae guard.

While it is better it isn't perfect. What can I do?

My levels are

Fr/br. 3/6
Ph 7.2
Ta 80
Th 200
Cya 40 (raising it currently)
