Life long dream to own a pool has come true and we have been in our house for about 1 month. The previous owner turned me on to this forum and I love the information and the assistance that seems to come from everybody. I have been hesitant to post, but here goes nothing...
We have a 18k gallon IG pool and we have 2 lab's that love to swim in it. It get's a lot of use! We have been testing daily and find that we are always near or at 0 for our FC level. We are putting 1 gallon of bleach in the pool EVERYDAY! Mind you we are in Houston in the middle of summer, but that seems like a lot. Our PH seems to be doing ok, but we are adding muratic acid about every 2 - 3 days. Our water seems cloudy, so I am hoping somebody can help me understand what is going on. My test info I got from the pool store is:
FC = 0
CH = 140
CYA = 10
PH = 7.8
ALKALINITY = 70
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
