My pool has been green since around the third. Our filter broke the morning of, and we had to leave on vacation. Upon returning we, obviously, had a green pool, and we bought a new filter and installed and I ordered the TF-100. I've been running our new filter 24/7 since we put it up because that's the only thing I could do! Received the kit today and just finished testing. I've been lurking and reading everything waiting for my kit (trust me, I read almost every article on pool school - even ones that don't pertain to me!)
TA: 220 (High and I wiped the tip after every drop like the instructions said)
CYA: 0 No reading?, so I assume zero (I tested twice and almost overflowed the tube waiting to not see the dot)
According to what my numbers are in pool math I need CYA. So, I'm about to go to the store to get the CYA and I'm going to put it in a sock and begin dissolving it in front of the filter return. Then I guess I'll start the SLAM in the AM assuming it is heading toward a CYA: 30 tomorrow (Because I'm not going to even bother checking it so soon, right?) When I look at pool math, my biggest worry is fixing the wrong things in the wrong order.
I know everyone is always really helpful and I would appreciate throwing some of that encouragement my way! I'm ready to Take Back My Pool!!
