Thanks for reading this. I opened my pool last week to an algea bloom which is about 95% cleared at this time with continual shocking. CYA is 0 and I am blowing through 3 gals of bleach a day not to mention pucks as well to try to bring up CYA. Not working. 10-12 at night when I add bleach. 9 in the morning, 0 when I get home from work.
Please help with advise on how to stabilize my pool since I've never done it before. I live in Cleveland and CYA is always 0 at opening. Always used pucks in the past but don't want to any more because it takes to long to bring up CYA. Don't know if its good to mix with bleach. I've heard to put 1 lb at a time in a sock and put in the skimmer. Soak 1-2 lbs at a time in warm water and break it down before pouring it in the skimmer. Leave the filter on for 48 hours after adding. Don't worry about it. Add liquid stabilizer to speed up the process. Watch the filters because they will clog. I'm lost....
Should I stop using pucks to bring up CYA since its taking too long?
Can I add stabilizer while the chlorine level is high?
What is the best type to use and how exactly to do this process?
I need to get the pool stabilized so I don't blow through so much chlorine. Thanks for any advice you can give or a page to go to that has instructions. Thanks
