Opening pool yesterday color lime green. I added 4 jugs 121 oz 8.25 bleach. Color turned clearish cloudy after a couple of hours. I also vaccumed the bottom blindly, not much big stuff but lots of gunk. Hooked up filter and got it running while adding some water. Then I tested the cloudy but clearer(I can see a hazy bottom) water.
Cya- 50-60 (after 3 readings it is between the two numbers)
PH- 8.2 or a tad higher
water temp- 72
So we added approx. 363 oz bleach last night kept filter running and retested this morning
water temp 68
so I added 151 oz approx bleach according to pool math
So here lies the questions... Plugging in my numbers I see I need to add 46oz MA 39oz CYA(stab.)
Should I add a little less CYA and retest in a week to see where I stand??
Should I add more salt with our salt water generator saying we need 2500-3500 with 3000 be ideal.
We are at 2840 on the salt test strips from the TF100 kit people.
Thanks for your help
