Here are my numbers
I have been trying to lower my TA from 230 since Tuesday this week. I've been using dry acid to do this with a 12 oz. dose approximately 2-3 times a day at no less than 4 hour intervals. The pool store suggested I do this before anything else. However reading more deeply on this forum it looks like I need to slam, but need to bring CYA up first to do this. I need to mention that the water has been cloudy. I have cleaned the pool including vacuuming last night. Started to notice late yesterday that the water was starting to have a slight green tinge to it just befor I vacuumed. I have been bringing PH by aerating. It dropped to 6.8 last night.
So, instead us putting dry acid in again to continue the TA reduction, I have put in the powdered Cyanuric acid to bring up CYA in prep for slamming. Based on the Powderd Cyanuric acid bag instructions in order to raise the CYA from 0 to 30 I needed to add ~24 oz. of powder. I put half in a bucket of warm water and dumped it in the skimmer without the basket. I have placed the other half in a skimmer sock tied it off and have it suspended in the skimmer so it won't clog. The pump has been running 24/7 since Momday 6/19.
Not sure what to do next? Should I start the slamming process with chlorine bleach, if so how much based on an initial CYA of 0 or should I wait? Dazed and confused. Spending a lot of time on this pool getting it up and running this year.
