Shocking An Indoor Pool???
I am looking for tips to shock an indoor pool.
I have a 25000 gallon vinyl pool. The pool is not new but I have owned it for about 2 years. I have a Hayward chlorinator that I have been using with great success. I have not had to do much of anything to the pool until about a month ago. The TA was suddenly up to 220 so I added dry acid as instructed by the pool store... This was the beginning of a 2 week battle. I was finally able the get the TA down (muriatic acid and aeration) and PH stable but am now having an issue with too much CC. I have never had to shock the pool in the 2 years I have owned it.
FC = .5
TC = 2
PH = 7.2
TA = 110
CYA = 50
TDS = 1000
After I tested the water, I added a gallon of bleach to increase the FC. I was not trying to shock the pool tonight but was temporarity increasing the FC till I shock it. My concern is that if I used bleach to shock the pool it would take FOREVER to come back down since the pool does not receive much sun light (indoors....). Is there another product I can use to shock it?
I found this forum the other day and am excited about the BBB method. Thanks for the help.
