We bought our house recently and are first time pool owners. There's direct sunlight on the pool from around 7 am until around 7:30 pm. We have come across several issues with trying to open our pool but finally had it going (the CYA was 30 and FC was 3 according to Leslie's). This past weekend (Saturday) we had a party with several swimmers who spent the entire day in the pool. By Monday our CYA and FC both dropped to 0 (again according to Leslie's) so we added 4 quarts of Instant Pool Conditioner. By Tuesday the water was tinted neon green but I could still see the bottom of the pool. Today, the green is much darker and I cannot see the bottom. My husband has finally agreed to let me take over and become a "mad scientist". I tested the water today (first time with Taylor K2006) and the levels are below.
FC - 0
PH - 8
TA - 80
CH - 150
CYA - undetectable (below 30)
Since we just added the conditioner on Monday, should I be waiting to test the CYA?
Any ideas on why our pool water turned green after we added the conditioner?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. We've only been able to use the pool a handful of times and it's already the end of July.
