I am a new member...thanks for helping!
We have had issues in the past with metal staining so when I opened the pool a week ago I proactively added Jacks Blue Stuff for metal and 32 oz. polyquot. I could see the bottom it was not green but had a clear film on walls, I put 2 tri chlor pucks in filter and ran 24/7, it became cloudy immediately so I added 2-4 bottles of bleach every night and blue clarifier. Now its a beautiful blue but I cannot see the deep end drain, yesterday I added 8 gallon bottles of liquid shock (sodium hypochlorite 12.5) and another polyquot 60 ...I still had a low FC level.
my numbers are fc 2, tac 5 cya 0,ta 80, ph 7.0
Out of desperation I went to the pool store They said to add soda ash and a bag of leslies powder powder plus (calcium hydrochlorite 73%) and to add clarifier tomorrow
I backwashed a few days ago, it wasn't green, no metal stains so far . I will recheck numbers today
how can i clear this pool, please help thanks
