Hello Everyone! New here so please forgive me for the dumb questions
Our pool was green we attempted the pool store chemical and it only got cloudy and teal green. I got on here and read a little and ordered the Taylors test kit. Prior to our kit getting her we were adding bleach to kill of algae.It appeared like it was getting bluer. I have tested twice, hopefully I did this correctly. Our pool was low due to all the backwashing and here were my numbers
CYA 110 ? assuming because it never reached the 100 line on the Taylor kit
So we filled up the pool its now cloudy looking again but still blue.
barely a color change this time with adding the powder to get a color change
CC .5 dramatic change
CYA 120 ? assuming because it never reached the 100 line on the Taylor kit
I put the number on the pool calculator and it tells me to replace 50% of the water but tells me to add chlorine? I see where I input the FC calculation but where do enter the CC figure?? Is that something that is not needed in the calculation? Can we do anything to avoid draining the pool? We have always drained and started fresh every year and I wanted to see if we could get back to clear without doing that this yr.
