Hmm, I don’t know. If you have read a post or two on this blog you’ll know that my pool had brown, dirty, murky water with a colony of frogs living in it at one time. It’s now crystal clear and swimmable. It took a lot of work, diatomaceous earth, chlorine, shock, leaf scooping, vacuuming […]
It’s around 8:00 PM and I went to do my final filter cleaning for the night and didn’t need to! If you have been following this blog, you know I’ve been cleaning a very dirty neglected pool. I’ve been working on clearing my green cloudy water (now that I’ve removed all of the decaying leaves).
Having your pool at the proper pH helps prolong the chemical’s cleaning ability (among other things). A pH that’s too low allows your chemicals to quickly dissipate, and a pH too high prevents optimal sanitizing action. Since I’m currently struggling with high pH, I’ll share my tale of high pH woe.
I’m so close to having a pool in swimable condition. Well, it would be if it weren’t for the annoying algae. I’ve got to say, it’s a nice looking green, but who wants to swim in green cloudy water?
