New here and have questions

Postby dedee » Sat 24 May, 2008 13:23

Hi everyone, I am new here and have a couple questions.
This is my second season with a 24' above ground pool. The filter is made by Hayward and the pool is a used pool and filter/pump. Age is unknown. Last year I had difficulty keeping pool crystal clear for half the summer.

This year I have had water tested 3 times and followed the pool dealers instructions to the "T". The problem is my pump/filter pressure is running between 50-60psi it should be about 15 like last year. I added 3# of granulated chlorine yesterday and 5 hours later added Stabilizer dissolved as best as it would dissolve. The pool was green before doing all this and today is cloudy/milky looking. according to my new test strips all chemicals are balanced and ok except for my PH.

The pool stores are closed here locally till Tuesday after Memorial day. What should I do? Will my filter blow up? I am not supposed to backwash for 48hrs since I added the stabilizer last night.

Thanks for any advise and help, dedee :wink:
