brownish yellow pool floor

Postby poollady 58 » Sat 29 Jul, 2006 01:30

HELP! Our pool has been cloudy for weeks! It has a brownish yellow film over most of the bottom. When i brush it away, it moves, but settles elsewhere again. A pool store employee told me it was "mustard" algae. Another told me it was scale build up...any ideas??? I've put in a mustard algae "buster" and also 4qts. of Scale Inhibitor (the next day). Still cloudy, with the brownish film. The chlorine and PH levels are perfect!
What do YOU think???? Thanks!

I have a fine powder that is brownish Tan and when I vacuum, it comes right back out the return jets and settles all over again. I replaced my sand last year, and don't know what is going on.... Ant thoughts?

I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. I WAS TOLD BY THE POOL STORE TO SHOCK IT AND IT IS STILL THERE AND NOW THE WATER IS CLOUDY, WHEN I VACUUM IT COMES OUT OF THE RETURN JETS.
