Opened our pool yesterday to a green mess! Thought I had enough chlorine in it when we closed last winter, but....
Anyhow, tested the water:
Cl - no free Cl
pH - 7.2
TA - 190 (always runs high)
CH - 350
CYA - 0
Took sample to Leslies to verify CYA, which they also recorded as zero. Now have stabilizer in stocking in skimmer; have dumped approx 8 jugs (182 oz size) in pool since yesterday, and have brushed pool. Currently:
Free Cl - .5; all other tests the same.
Am I on the right track? I didn't realize it would take so much bleach initially to even get a reading!
Am using the Leslie's Total Poolcare DPD test kit.
