Ok so I discovered TFP last summer (thank God!) and so this is my 2nd summer to open with TFP. I closed the pool properly last fall but there was a hole in my tarp and it's a swamp ...so essentially all that work for nothing! So I have of course read the "turning your swamp back into an oasis" but had a question on what would be the average amount of gallons of chlorine for this whole process. I started the process Monday evening making sure my CYA, that started at 0, was at 30 and PH at 7.4. Since Monday evening I have used 30 gallons of 10% pool chlorinating liquid, purchased from Walmart, but still have not been able to get it to a shock level of 12 or keep it at half that range. I figured my CYA was too high but I checked it and I'm still at 30. Doesn't this seem like an excessive amount to have to add? I am seeing results but still dumping 10-12 gallons in a day. I am using a TF-100 test kit purchased last summer.
Thanks for for your Help!
