I am not sure what exactly it was and my water is suddenly way off. I have been maintaining the pool myself for the last 3+ weeks without any real issue.
Last Wed #s
PH 7.8 (I consistently add 35 oz of muriatic acid to knock this down to 7.8. by the next evening it is 7.8...repeat)
On Tue he put in the stain remover while I was at work and did not bother to let me know. That evening I noticed the water looked cloudy - first time ever. Here are the initial #s
So I was in freak out mode and added 1 gal liquid chlorine and turned the SWCG up to 100% Started brushing and noticed white plumes that looked like plaster dust. So I called PB and that is when I found out he added the stain remover. He said the stain remover was the only thing he added - a double dose. Before he handed the keys to me, we discussed some tan staining on the white plaster and he said he would take care of it. The fix was put on hold because I was having my roof replaced. He said the stains where from the sandy soil. I am having a hard time believing that...but back to my urgent concern.
SWCG ran all night at 100% and is still running. This morning:
Got some more liquid chlorine (8.25) and added it around an hour ago. Test 15 minutes ago:
Added another gallon
I cannot make contact with PB to find out what was in the stain remover.
Could the stain remover have phosphates in it?
I am concerned that the FC will not budge but the CC is still going up.
Should I just keep adding chlorine until the FC starts to stick?
Should I turn off the SWCG until I get this resolved?
