Green Pond Sludge...Chlorine dumps, now looking great not all the way clear but getting there.
Leslies Numbers Yesterday, we knew it would look about like this...bad bad rains, on top of pool issues after broken SWG circuit board. 18K pool, salt
CYA 0 zilch
Temp around 77
Recs were 1 gallon Acid, 6 lbs conditioner, 3 bags salt
What we did, 1 gallon, 3lbs conditioner (1/2 the rec), 3 bags salt
Tests today with TFT
FC 1.5 we dont agree on 1 vs 2, so we went with 1.5
PH 8.2 Remember the gallon of Muriatic acid?
TA 470!! This is where it gets tricky...our TFT kit has some problems. Our R-0010 says Alkalinity test, but of course is for CH....we dont use it in the TA test but am wondering if something else is mislabled as well causing this reading? when we first got the kit we couldnt get it to read TA regardless of how many drops we put in. I have no doubt it is high now and was high then...but no reading? and 470? Now it does start doing flashes of red well before the 470 reading, but they disappear quickly.
CH 40 exactly what Leslie's says, so that mislabled R-0010 must be fine? My TA test is what confuses me.
CYA 30 remember the 3 lbs stabilzer we put in? they rec 6 so maybe it would be dead on if we put the other rec amount? or should we wait? how long til stabilzer is well distributed?
Salt 3000 per the box. We put in the 3 rec bags, sounds about right.
1 gallon of acid? and hardly a thing?
My TA test kit?
Where should I go from here?
