    Med1171 - New Member - just trying to clear up my pool :)

    24' round x 52" high vinyl pool, upgraded to a large Sand Filter and Salt-Water system. Crystal clear last year but looked like a swamp this year. Have added Bleach & Stabilizer to turn it milky white, add flocculent to sink it, vacuumed it all up and can't get my FC levels above 0 no matter how much bleach, stabilizer, algaecide I add to it so here I am.

    If I can't get a handle on it in the next few days I'll test and post in the appropriate place to see what you guys think.

    THANKS!

    Hi, welcome to TFP! Have you tested your stabilizer since you added it?

    Don't laugh, ordering a good test kit today, but for now, the Clorox strips being read by (yes - I'm using it), my iPhone 6S Clorox App....This was an hour after adding a gallon of dissolved (1 tablet) clorox.

    The above test was about 30 minutes PRIOR to the post, so about 5:43 Eastern. Just retested using the strips/app again and got this:

    Only posted these since you asked about the stabilizer values. If I need to put all of this somewhere else please advise and I'll move it. Gonna test again about 7:15pm eastern.

    The test strip results don't help us help you. We don't trust them. We trust test kits that use Taylor reagents. What test kit did you order?
