Hello, having a tough time getting this pool in shape. Any advice would be very appreciated.
I have a 14' X 42" round Intex above ground pool. Approximately 3,100 gallons. Krystal Clear 8110 Saltwater System. Both just under one year old.
Salt cell builds up a lot of scale after a couple of weeks. Test strips would show the chlorine level in pool at around 2.0 early morning but gone by late afternoon. I have to run the saltwater system at Boost mode all night to generate enough chlorine to last through the afternoon. My water is crystal clear now but was cloudy a few weeks ago so I shocked the pool twice, each time with an 121 oz bottle of 8.25% bleach about a week apart.
Just bought a Taylor K2006 test kit. Test results below
FC 2.0 ppm
CC 0.4 ppm
PH 8+ (Acid demand took 4 drops of R-0005 to lower to PH to 7.4)
TA 200 ppm
CH 250 ppm
CYA 0 (7 mil + 7 mil of R-0013 mixture never got cloudy)
Salt 2180 ppm (My Salt Pool test strip)
I can see I have very unbalanced water. Where should I begin to balance the SI?
