This will be my first year on BBB 100%, ended last year on bleach. Opened pool on Fri. water was murky, greenish blue. I could see alot of leaves covering main drain and dirt on the walls. I vacumed the leaves out and brushed the walls, could no longer see the bottom in deep end and water was greener. Here are my test results and what i have done so far. The weather was partly sunny and 65 on sat and 50 and light rain today, water is very cold.
These results were noon on sat.
PH. 7.5 I added 32 oz of muratic to lower ph to 7.2
After ph was 7.2 I added seven- 3/4 gallon jugs of aldi bleach.
1:30 21.0 .5
2:00 21.0 .5
3:00 20.0 1.0
4:30 19.5 .5 add 3/4 gal bleach
6:00 18.0 .5 add 3/4 gal bleach
8:30 23.0 1.0
this morning pool is light blue and I can see the main drain, cloudy cool and light rain.
7:00 am 18.5 1.0 add 3/4 gal bleach
1:30 pm 20 1.0
Is this algae, If so how long should I keep fc at 20? After pool is clear how much bleach should I expect to have to add per day, with light bather load. How much of the r-0871 and r-0870 should I expect to use in a 5 month pool season, assuming that I have to check the fc level daily? Thanks in advanced.
