can't clear water

Postby chastam » Thu 01 May, 2008 10:20

I'm having a problem opening my pool this year. (Last year was much worse!) We bought a house with a AG pool last year in april. The pool was left uncovered and not taken care of for 3 years. There was at least 2 feet of leaves in the pool last year. After $1500 in chemicals last year and lots of trips to the pool store I finally found this site! THANK YOU! This site helped me clear my pool last years and keep it clear all year.

This year I've opened the pool, brushed, vaccumed and got the water from brown/green to a cloudy blue. I can't seem to get it clear. I've shocked with bleach, ran the pump/filter 24/7 checked and balanced numbers but I"m still having trouble. I've read and read on this site and even though I "think" I know what I"m doing, the more I read the more confused I become! :shock:

Here are my numbers as far as I can tell

FC 4
TC 3
CC 1
Ph 7.4
TA 200
CYA 15-20
The CYA reading is really hard to tell. I'm using the taylor kit and have to fill the little tube up all the way and still see the little black dot :roll:
Any suggestions would help
Thank you
