I just bought a house last fall, and the pool was green when I moved in. I winterized the pool green, after spending a lot of money trying to follow the pool store instructions. Now I'm opening my green pool.
Please let me know if I'm going the right direction... I bought the pool testing kit recommended on this site and have the following
CYA less than 20
PH more than 8.2
Based on pool math I just put 62 oz of pool stabilizer in a sock in the skimmer, with filter running.
After 48 hrs I'll retest and get the pH to 7.7. After that I will attempt slamming with liquid chlorine by get FC up 16. Does this sound correct?
I also bought some algaecide (dimethyl a benzyl ammonium chloride), what are the forums' thoughts on using the algaecide to speed up the process?
