So I've been fighting with algae growing in my pool for a while now. Decided to buy a test kit and read some articles in the pool store as well as watching youtube videos on how to properly test my water.
About once a week I have to vacuum the pool to get the algae off the bottom and backwash.
I have a 24' round 4' deep above ground pool - 13,500 gallons with a DE Hayward filter. Chlorine is delivered through a floater with 3" pucks that I usually have 3 in at a time.
I just did a test of all the levels twice to make sure I have them all correct, here are my results.
Ph - 7.4
FC - 0.5 to 1
CYA - 70
CC - 0
TC - 2
I've never used bleach or liquid chlorine before, and I just want to get some advice on how much I will have to add to get the FC in the 8 range target (as noted in the CYA chart).
