So my husband and I just got out of the military and we are temporarily staying at his parents place which is on the market. It has a beautiful 22,000 gallon pool. Well recently I gave birth and the pool took a serious backseat. It turned into a swamp. We took some serious measures to clear it up with the help of a professional and things were getting back on the right track. Well his cousins decided they really wanted to swim in the pool while my husband and I went away for the weekend. So they added an excess of chemicals to the pool. I am not able to give an exact amount only because no one is owning up to it, but I do know it has a lot of algaecide in it. The pool has literally been dyed a turquoise blue color without using actual dye in the pool. I only have the test strips and the chlorine level has been reading VERY HIGH, the highest it will read on the strips for a week now. The pool is so cloudy you can't see the bottom. I don't know what to do.
P.s. I do understand the importance of having a good test kit, but because we are only here for another 2 weeks I don't see the point in purchasing it right now. I wish I had more information about what was in the pool but unfortunately they don't even know what exactly they dumped into it.
