Hello to all.
Long story short, after the pool store and the pool guy both failed me, I turned to the internet and found you.
At this point, we had tried green to clean a week ago and a copper based algaecide early this week and saw absolutely no change in the color and intensity of the green. So I started anger-shocking. First with Calcium Hypochlorite, and the with potassium monopersulfate. Seemed to 'break up' the CC line the store said, but the change was barely noticeable.
Then I found this place and started converting. I am about half a day into a SLAM and here are my current results:
FC between 10 and 15
CC either 0 or 0.5 (No difference between FC and TC)
CYA 20 (but I added to 30 using pool math)
My FC hasn't really changed so far and the green is still there. I'm worried that the previous Calcium Hypochlorite additions may have added to the CYA before I did, and now my true CYA is much higher than I think it is, which would be why FC of even 15 wouldn't be doing much, I believe.
Should I soldier on staying between 12 and 15 FC or should I push higher?
I have a 81-330 Leslie's Complete Poolcare DPD test kit with a TF-100 ordered.
Thanks for the help!
