Ok pools been up for a few months now. It is a Pro Series 20 x 48 with a through the wall skimmer, an INTEX 3,000GPH sand filter and their largest saltwater chlorinator (with copper)
Water has been on and off clear by using the store cheap test kits and "generously" using bleach while running my pump 24/7 and my saltwater system on 10hr cycles. I spent some time with getting my same in my filter to work right which I shared in a few posts with the group. But now all seems to be good to go.
Now that I have my test kit I'm ready to do this thing. Lol. I'm in central Texas (Killeen, FT Hood area) so I still have quite some swimming time left and I don't plan to take the pool down over the winter.
Here are my results. I ran them each 3 times and here are my averages:
PH = >8.2 darker than top of test
FC = 1.0
TA = 180
CYA = <20 can still make out black dot at 20 line
I know my PH is high, my CYA, CC and FC are low. I have read pool school a few times and understand a little but I guess I need someone or multiple someone's to help me know where to start first. I have muratic acid, bleach and I think I'm going to be told to go grab some cyuranic acid too.
Thanks in advance.
