Trying to open this pool this summer and trying to figure everything out.
Pool was green and visibility low. Went to pool store to get chlorine and algaecide per store's instructions. This seemed to help clear up the pool but still noticing a few oddities. Pool stills seems cloudy, there are some yellow-brown stains I can't seem to get rid of from a few places in the pool, and the chlorine wasn't holding according to another kit I had. I checked online, found this site, ordered a new kit, and here I am.
(2) Do these numbers seem right?
These are the numbers from tonight at 9:00 pm:
(3) Next Steps?
Based on the reading that I've been doing on this site and the booklet, should I focus first on getting the CYA level to between 30-40 before thinking about the chlorine levels and tackling the stain issues?
Thanks for any guidance or help. I really hope to do my best in taking care of this great pool for me and my family. Thank you!
