New member, and new pool owner. I have a ~2,200 L above ground Intex pool with a 1500 GPH pump. I've had it open just over a week. Water was crystal clear until I left a tarp cover on one hot day. When removing the cover it's cloudy.
I shocked the pool with a non-chlorine shock when I first filled it (26g BioGuard Oxysheen https://amzn.to/3ixqjLn) and I have been treating it with chlorine tablets in a floater (SpaGuard Smart Tabs https://amzn.to/3gsT9e4). I calculated the water volume should need 1 tab/day, but they don't seem to dissolve that fast so I added two to the floater.
I run the pump for a couple of hours at least each day, probably in the realm of 2-4 hours per day.
Since removing the cover and finding it cloudy, I have shocked the pool again, changed out the pump filter (which was impeding flow something fierce) added another chlorine tablet to the floater (which had two already in progressive states of dissolving). I've also run the pump for a good 6 hours and it has done little to clear the cloudiness.
My test reading from a strip as of this morning,
Code: Select all
The FC has dropped since the previous day which was at 3, this prompted me to add another tablet to the floater as mentioned above. Any feedback would be appreciated. Cheers.
