Hello! I am so happy to join Trouble Free Pool forum. We bought our house with a pool last summer. My husband seemed to have no issues with taking care of the pool. It was great. Right now my husband is deployed and so its been left to me and I am struggling. I am putting an order of the test kit in so in the meantime I brought a pool sample to our pool store. I had told her the chlorine level was non existent (from the test strips I still have). The pool was not green but it was cloudy. From their testing:
calcium hardness 111
total chlorine .91
free chlorine .24
chlorine stabilizer 30
They recommended I add 12 lbs of alkalinity increaser and 3 jugs of the liquid chlorine. Of course once I brushed the walls and floors, the pool started to look more on the green side. Not horrible but a greenish tint. They assured me my kids would be able to swim this weekend. This morning I found the pool to still be cloudy and a green. Using my test strips (I know... ) the Free chlorine measured very high. Is it still possible for my kids to enjoy the pool this holiday weekend? Please HELP!!!!...
