pH Never moves

Postby BudhpigUK » Sun 03 Jun, 2018 11:37

Hi, last year l installed an above ground Intex pool with a Sand filtration system and inline Chlorinator. The issue is that the pool is green and dispite having does it with 2.5Ltr liquid Chlorinated Acid and a further 100 gramms of Chlorine granuals, the pH is still showing <6.5. The green has now gone and l simply have algae in the floor that needs vacuming out.

Any suggestions? To ensure l had no issues last year l inversted in an expensive proffessional pool meter called "Palintest - Pooltest 6". As you can see l also have a mixture of tablets for carring out various tests. This unit is brand new and been used circa 15 times.

All help is appricated.

What is the stabiliser level? (Cyanuric acid) and the other levels Alk and hardness?
