HELP ! MY POOL LOOKS LIKE A REALLY LARGE GLASS OF MILK!

Postby chell » Fri 15 Jul, 2005 22:27

I have just about give up, my pool is a 24 foot round and the water was clear however, after a week-end of rain it turned green. I put five packs of shock-it in the pool and now it is WHITE. It looks like a big glass of Milk. When I test it it show my chlorine level 3.0 just a little high and the ph level is between 7.6 and 7.8. I have no idea what to do now! Please Help!

Get some clarifier and run the filter for at least 6 hours after adding the clarifier.
This should bring all the debris to the bottom of the pool for you to vacuum out!

What kind of filter do you have?

When using shock, always try to use liquid over powder. Powder will make the water cloudy for a day or two. Just add some form of clarifer/coagulant, run filter for 12 hrs, then shut down. Most of the contaminets should be laying on bottom of pool......
