Hi guys, I'm new to this forum. As you can tell by my screen name, I'm from Alabama. We've had our pool for 2 years now and the first year we used everything the pool supply store said to use. Every time we turned around we were testing the water and buying more chemicals.
I ran across another site that says in order to maintain a sparkling clean pool all you need are bleach, borax and baking soda. I have an above ground pool approximately 28', sand filter. (thats about all I know)
My question is last week my pool turned slightly green and cloudy, no rain and 90+ temps everyday I'm sure depleted my chlorine. I have managed to clear it up some with the bbb treatment. However, it is still cloudy towards the bottom, but blue. My readings as of yesterday were TC around 10, PH--low at 6.5, TA 78, and CYA (I think was 35). I know I need to bring up the PH and let the chlorine go down a little.
What do I need to add to bring the PH up and make the cloudiness go away?
Does anyone else use the bbb method in maintaining their pool?
