This is my first year opening the pool. Last year we moved in around July and once I adopted the BBB method I had no issues with the pool. I've been trying to bring my CC down and just haven't had any luck. My test readings are as follows
TA 160 (working on lowering with aeration)
CYA ? (water barely cloudy when testing, trying to bring up slowly)
my issue is my FC will not come up. At all. I've added 8 gallons of 12.5 bleach in the last 24 hours(during the day and at night). I've checked my chemicals every hour yesterday and twice this morning, my CC has come down a bit since yesterday but why isn't my test kit indicating any FC? The reason I'm concerned is because I don't know when I should be adding additional bleach to maintain shock levels.
My water is crystal clear, aside from some falling buds off trees which I've been skimming. In fact my water was only slightly cloudy when opening a couple weeks ago.
I'm new to the forum so any advice would be great and any other information I can provide I will gladly. Thanks.
