I agree the first point should be to check your PH level and get it to 7.2-7.4 but I would still advise you to get the pool water tested. Find a qualified person or take a sample to your pool shop.....it'll save you many euros and will take out the guess work

Hope this helps

Hi again, yes, wez is correct, read up on it!

Just google swimming pool problems, there are some very good informative websites out there.

www.visionpoolservice.com or x.havux.org

Chlorinating wasn't the first thing i tried, but it worked for me.

Be prepared to bang your head against the wall, it can be frustrating.

( used about 2lb of chlorine by the way!)

Hi bhurstfield,

Make sure your test reagents are not out of date. (replace every six months, and keep cool and in the dark). You will not get accurate readings from old, contaminated or over heated test kit.

Don't fire loads of chemicals into the pool. Result...chemical soup. One thing at a time... Then wait and see.

Read up on the subject and keep the pH as near to 7.3 as you can.

YES I HAVE REPEATED THIS....IT'S IMPORTANT. WOULD YOU JUMP INTO SIX MONTH OLD BATH WATER??????

Good luck.

Hi there, i had this problem, and after reading various websites followed some of their advice and shocked the pool, i didn't use much science in this, just threw loads of chlorine in, and then left the pump running continouosly for nearly 3 days.
this cleared it, think i caused the problem in the first case by not keeping up to cleaning/additives etc.

Hi,

The full test and repaort is €30 but the travelling time is the same so total cost would be €60.
