Swim Suits turn green in Ion pool

Postby thowell22 » Wed 05 Jun, 2013 08:14

I have an Ion pool with a vinyl liner. We test the water weekly and regardless of the results we have been adding a gallon of bleach or a bag of shock along with algaecide and water clarifier. We have noticed recently that guest swim suits turn green after swimming in the pool. As you can imagine, this is quite embarrassing. My wife and I disagree on the cause. She thinks it is because of the ions in the pool. I think we are overtreating it. Can someone help before we wind up in divorce court over this??
