I started doing the trouble free pool method last year and had my best year ever with the pool. This is a great forum. I didn't have to add stabilizer last year because CYA was around 30 all year. Upon opening this year my pool was green. I balanced the water as best I could. Alkalinity is 100 and PH is 7.6 and CYA is 0. Slammed the pool last evening and woke up to blue cloudy water. When I got home from work water still blue and cloudy but free chlorine is 2 and CC is 0. Blushed the pool and am about to re-slam this evening. I know that CYA has to be raised but I've never added Stabilizer before. Is it best to add it now or wait till water is clear? What stabilizer is recommended? Best way to add? Also do I keep slamming until water is clear?
I am also having to clean the cartridge filter every hour and do the constant juggling and soaking of 3 cartridges. Scared to go to work and have the filter totally plug while I'm gone so I run the pump without the filter during the day just to circulate the water until I get home. Should you soak cartridges then soak in Muriatic Acid or just soak overnight in TSP?
Any help would be appreciated. Any additional info please let me know.
