    Krystal clear

    Well I just recently joined I have not posted anything just been reading forums and the pool school I started using the pool calculator I just started using bleach instead of the 3 inch pucks an shock I would have started sooner but my girlfriend didn't like that idea of adding bleach to the pool I finally convinced there after our recent trips to the pool store and the guy said I needed to buy about $300 with chemicals to get my pool clear and he said it was still going to take a while so this week we started using bleach and now my pool is crystal clear I have a little cheap test kit from Walmart I am going to purchase the tf100 but I'm a little short on money right now I hope my pool can last about 2 weeks I'm just going to keep up on the chlorine and my ph I ran out of the cya test in my cheap test kit last time I checked it was in the 35-40 range but for now I would like to thank everybody because all the information provided does help even if you don't ask for it I just hope I never have to slam my pool

    Welcome to TFP!

    Nice pool! And awesome first post!

    Keep your chlorine level at or above target for your CYA and the Chlorine CYA Chart and you will be good to go.

    My pool is under some crazy TX sun from 7:00am until about 8:30pm. No shade. My CYA is at 50 and I just added another 20oz to get closer to 60.

    How often do you check your pool since your cya is at 50

    Re: Krystal clear

    Me personally, I check my FC everyday. I never want to run the risk of an algae attack. PH maybe every 2-3 days or so (it's been very steady for a while). TA every week or so. CYA I test every 3-4 weeks if there's been a major change in water (rain or water exchange). CH once a season or so. That's just me.

    Here is the official TFP recommendation: Pool School - Basic Pool Care Schedule

    Re: Krystal clear

    Yeah I've read that one I check it every day at least twice in the afternoon and night cuz I still lose quite a bit of chlorine but I think that's because of my cya we're just started adding some today it dropped my PH to a 7.2
