So begining of the summer I raised my CYA to 80ppm dialed in the swg and life was perfect. we went out of town for three weeks and while we were gone the power went out. my awesome VSP had an error and I was not home to hit the start button so the pool sat for three weeks growing algea.
I ran out of the DPD titrating agent to measure FC, and the CYA reagent that came with my kit. Stupid me thought I could just get these at the pool store to resume my own management. WRONG. So I know I have FC as when I add the reagent that makes it turn red we have a nice deep red color. and I have no CC in the test. I started shocking last week and kept going untill I saw no more CC. and the sample stayed red when i added step 1 from my taylor kit.
CYA: hopefully still 80
FC: Dark red
The water is still cloudy im assuming since it took 3 weeks to grow the algea(I mean caked on green algea) it will take some time to clear it up? the correct replacement solutions have been ordered and will be here eventually.
