So I have had a rough start to the pool season. It has rained and snowed like crazy in Atlanta, GA this weekend. While it was doing this my pool cover pump broke overnight and was pumping the water right back onto the cover. Long story short the cover ripped off from the tracks because of the weight and I've been forced to open my pool early. So I managed to get the cover rolled back, filled the pool with probably close to 15000-18000 gallons of water, got the pump started, etc.
The pool is quite green and I ran a water test after I had already shocked it....mistake #2. Last year I dealt with extremely high levels of CYA and had to use maximum chlorine all summer. I was so in the habit of shocking with high volumes of bleach I put in about 8 bottles of 6% bleach. Here are my results of recent water testing:
FC = at least 35 probably more
pH=8.2 (maybe slightly higher)
CYA= 10 or less
Temp=it's very cold and snowing
Any help would be appreciated to help me get back on track.
