Background: Didn't open pool until a couple of weeks ago, then realized my sand tank cap was off so lost water after putting in CYA. Found cap, refilled pool, tested & adjusted. Scooped thousands of tadpoles out & have kept pool at shock level for this entire time, keeping pump on recirculating during the cap snafu. I've really only been filtering since last Sunday, so that's 5 days. Tested CYA Wednesday & got a reading of a little over 20 so circulated some more then per pool math. Here are my numbers & a picture today:
FC: 10 (adjusted back up before posting per pool math)
CYA: adjusted to 35 on Thursday, but did have some rain & have backwashed 5 X since then.
I STILL can't see bottom of pool & I lost my vacuum head in the water . I can see halfway down now & couldn't see that last week so I know I'm making some progress. What should I be expecting? I think I've cleared all the leaves, etc. off the bottom, but I also can't get the vacuum to work-not sure if I have a faulty hose or what but I'm crabby with my daughter & think the pool is probably causing some stress-lol!
