Hi, I am relatively new to the forum, and looking for advice on how to get a green pool back to sparkling. I have read the "Turning Your Green Swamp Back Into A Sparkling Oasis", and that prompted more questions.
The last pool store test measured our CYA at 34, which seems idea for SLAMing. Before reading any of this information, I have been attempting to raise the chlorine levels, to eliminate the algae. Not really knowing exactly what I am doing, over the last 48 hours, I have added 3 - 1 gallon treatments of liquid chlorine (calcium hypochlorite - not sure of the %). I added the second and third gallon, based on the fact that there was absolutely no change in the water color. It is still solid green, and cloudy.
Now, reading the information here, I am afraid I have raised my FC level way too high, to the point where I may hurt my liner.
Should I be vacuuming regularly during the process of adding chlorine? I do not currently own a FAS-DPD test kit to test CC, but that seems like something I need.
Any help or advice is certainly appreciated. My pool has been green for about two weeks now!
