Thank you you for taking the time to read this request for help. Your input is greatly appreciated!
We we have an above ground, vinyl, 30" deep x 15' pool that we have placed at our home in Minnesota. We've filled it with 2,780 gallons of well water. Based on other calculators suggested from the tht product from Walmart (I know . . . Now). After buying incredible array of chemicals yesterday and treating the pool with 7 lbs of ph decreaser (thank you other calculator) we have brought the ph too low (I believe). We haven't opened all the product we purchased so I'm hoping with your feedback I will be able to take some of it back.
i used the pool math calculator, and based on the following levels, received instruction to add 5.8 oz of bleach and 28oz of washing soda.
Current levels (with strips, and I will be ordering a better test kit today):
my biggest visual concern is that the water is completely green. I picked up some clarity liquid and alge liquid to help with cloudiness, but I'm unsure if that's the answer to our problem. We just filled it up so I wouldn't think alge can grow in half a day but maybe that's not right. We have some 90 degree days coming up and I'd love for my girls to have some pool time.
Apprciate your help!!
