Just wanted to say what's up, I've already learned a lot on this site as I've been lurking for a couple weeks. We have a big pool that has been inoperable since two summers ago. My wife hired a pool company last spring to open it, and it didn't go well at all. We weren't able to use it but a few times. I bought a Taylor k 2006 kit and wondered why the CH was so high. Turns out, according to their invoice, that they started with 100 lbs of cal-hypo, and kept adding shock til the water was clear. This year I'm attempting to open it myself using this site's method. I've almost got everything off the bottom, and the water itself isn't green anymore, just cloudy. First test last Friday:
The ch scares me, and I've added 2 lbs of conditioner since. Also floating tricolor til Cya comes up.
