I read "Turning Your Green Swamp Back into a Sparkling Oasis" and looked at how to get to shock level with the caluclator so I think I have a pretty good idea how to clear up my pool. But, I have some pool chemicals left over from last season that I would possibly like to use up before using the BBB method:
10 1lb bags Chlor Brite (DiChlor)
12 tabs (3") trichlor
1/2 quart Leslie's Algae Control
I understand that the trichlor and dichlor can raise CYA but I'm not sure how much it would be. Any suggestions on using any of this to clear up my green swamp?
Here are the test results from the pool store:
PH 7.8 (I read 7.5 with my test kit)
