New pool owner from July 4th. Inexperience and not paying enough attention have gotten me into the cloudy/murky green territory with my Intex 8x30" AG. Been pouring over threads here trying to get the basics of pool maintenance and slamming down. Home someone can offer some kindly hand holding.
As of tonight (July 27,2015) after reading my inaccurate HTH 6 way test strip these are approx:
FC < 0
pH > 7.8
cya < 0
From reading the FAQ here on algae, I should lower my pH and raise my cYA before attempting any slamming?
should these be introducdI should purchase some HTH stabilzer? What else can be used instead of buying htc products? Should these be added separately at diff times?
What would be my shock level based on the numbers from above? the very 1st entry:
so does this mean i should be adding 10 oz of bleach into my 8x30" pool? My cYA looks closer to 0, so should I be doing 20 oz?? Should I be disconnecting and cleaning to inside of the pump also?
CYA (Stabilizer) Minimum FC Target FC Shock FC 20* 2 3 10
Thats it for now. More basic questions to follow
Thanks for any iinput
