    Unhappy First time pool owner of a ten year old pool

    Hi

    Trying to figure out how to get the water crystal clear again. Figured out we need new filters and mineral cartridge - but unclear about how to shock - all the levels are good except the FCI - it is at 0 and the water is mucky a bit -

    Welcome to the forum. We DON'T recommend the use of any mineral cartridges. Do you have one of our recommended test kits to perform the SLAM process as outlined in Pool School? Shocking is NOT the answer.

    Welcome to TFP. You need a reliable test kit and a go around in pool school to educate yourself on pool maintenance to make it easier on you. We're here to help.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
