This all started over 3 weeks ago. The farm across the road was plowed the summer wheat. There was an awful stench in the air. We went in the pool the next day, As I was cleaning it with the scooper I noticed these mucus like substance. I thought it was from my girls. Then the following day I had Yellow / Mustard Algae. I used Yellow Out along with two (1lb) bags of shock. The following day As I was vacuuming the pool it turned cloudy, a milky white cloudiness. I also noticed white wisps floating in the pool. Like someone put a tissue in the water and it broke up. I contacted my pool store they suggested flocing the pool. I did that. It cleared up, but when I went to vacuum it out (on waste per store) it clouded up again and hasn't changed. I can't even see my stairs. I've left my pool filter going 24/7 for 5 days and nothing. I then found out there are several people in my area with the same exact problem. One person has floced his pool 8 times and nothing. Everyone is at there wits end. The water has been tested for everything. Nothing. Oh and another thing, when this all started I couldn't keep enough clorine in the pool. It was eating right through my shock and (2) 3" round tablets. One day it was high purple on the stick and the next it was showing no clorine.
All other reading are fine. They have never changed through all of this.
Myself and everyone else involved would appreciate any help you can give us.
Are you a non-chlorine pool using Baquacil (soft swim, etc) by chance?
If so, this is common after a few years and you should consider switching to Chlorine.
As stated, you rarely ever hear of water-mold in a chlorine pool.
