Last year was my first year owned a pool. I brought everything the store sold. This year I have gotten wiser. I opened to a cloudy but not green pool. I got a good test kit and began a slam based on my CYA level (50). Everything is going great CC is 0, water is clear but 1.5 weeks in I still can't pass the OCLT test. I usually test FC at 20 ppm at 10pm and then test at 5:30am and have been losing 3 ppm a night. I usually add 36ox of 8.25 bleach every morning. I clean filter, floor and walls everyday. any suggestions? Thanks in advance, this is a great forum
I find the CYA test to also be very hard. I am not sure if I still see dot or not but dipstick and pool store are all around 50 as well.
