I bought my home with the pool 3yrs ago, and sense then I have read as much as i can to learn how to properly take care of said pool and I have failed epicly! In 3yrs I have had 3 algae blooms and it would have been more but I let them last sometimes for months (I am ashamed, but really didn't have much choice). I am just coming off an algae bloom now.
CYA- low enough I can not get a read on it
PH- 7.2 ppm
FC- 3.5 ppm (added 121oz of 8.25% Bleach 2 hrs before taking the read)
CC- 2.0 ppm (I don't understand the concept of CC at all)
TA- 70 ppm
CH- 280 ppm
I have 2 Floaters, but just put the last of my Trichlor in them, any recommendations on the Trichlor I should buy. How much Trichlor should I add and how often? From what I understand Trichlor adds CYA, should I add CYA my self sense it is so low? If so any recommendations on that as well? My pool is blue, but very cloudy I read that Clarifier is not good to use, is this true? I am also of the understanding that I should not use Flocculant because I can not vacuum to waist, is this true?
