Help - Pool water is clear, but has a green tint!
I'm at my wits end and I hope it's ok to ask this question here. Our pool opened green this year (it was clear, just green). There was a small tear in the solid cover for the last month of the winter, so we assumed that let in organic material that caused algae (that said there was no algae on the walls, and it was pretty clean).
We've been dousing this pool with shock and algicide and backwashing like crazy. Nothing is helping. It actuallly looked like it was starting to turn toward blue, but after another round of backwashing, shock, and algicide it looks brighter green than ever this morning. I don't know how anything could still be living in this pool. What is going on?!?!? According to the test strips the ph is good and the alkalinity is a bit high. Any thoughts or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
