cloudy light green water no ph high alk

Postby katheguard33 » Sun 15 Jul, 2007 07:17

I have an above ground pool with light green cloudy water, NO ph, and VERY high alk. I adjusted the ph with a Riser, then added Muratic Acid to lower the alk, but I still have a light green cloudy pool and the Muratic Acid lowered my ph! I think I am fighting a losing battle here. How am I supposed to lower my high alk without losing my ph? And when I shock with liquid chlorine, the levels go from high to low in a matter of hours! Should I add enough acid to rid my high alk, then adjust ph, then shock? Please help.... this is getting costly!

Using your test kit, please post a full set of numbers so we can see where you are at. Otherwise we would just be guessing instead of helping!
